Ripple N is a beauty! His sire, All Hands on Zip, is 5-time World Champion Junior Hunter Under Saddle and stands 17 hands. All Hands on Zip is by Zippo Jack Bar, a son of Zippo Pine Bar.

This colt's dam is a sorrel AQHA mare, Skipa Clipse. Her bloodlines include Skipper W, Three Bars and Magnolia Bar. The mare is a super athlete, and throws athletic, clean loping babies.

 

Rip has some pretty fancy full siblings that have preceded him in the show ring.  His oldest sister Zippo Dixie Darlin', competed successfully in Western Pleasure with the Paustels in California.  Next came our show mare Zippa Clipse, who completed her ROM in Jr Hunter Under Saddle and missed her ROM in Hunter In Hand by 1/2 point!  Zippa Clipse has since become one of our outstanding broodmares, producing some incredible babies who will be in the show ring soon. 

Another notable sister was the beautiful Hands Off Gingersnap who has National points in Trail, Western Pleasure, Hunter In Hand and Hunter Under Saddle. Zip N Tango, his big brother has really made a name for himself in Europe where he is the 2005 European Champion in Jr Western Pleasure.  He is the junior stallion at Frontier Appaloosas in Bascara, Spain.  Another full sister, Honey Suckle Hands, also resides in Spain, where she will soon begin her show career with Frontier Appaloosas.

Rip will excel in Western Pleasure -- he has the look and movement for that discipline.  He is an athlete and will have the ability to compete in all western events.

Rip is very easy to work with and is suitable for a Non-Pro or Youth, with the talent to win at all levels of competition.  He has been working under saddle with Beth Bass for about 90 days.  He has incredibly slow legs and is phenomenal at both the jog and lope. He is also learning to extend and has a enough length in his trot to copmpete in NP HUS and Equitation. He should mature at 15-3 hands.
