At FairWinds we breed to produce the temperament, conformation and gait all of which is representative of the best elements of rocky mountain horses. Mountain Horses are known for their four beat gait and easy going attitude making them one of the best, if not the best, of any trail horse breed.
FairWinds has 300 plus acres which is the training grounds with several creek crossings, bridges, densly wooded areas with rocky unlevel ground, and not to mention our 15 very active barking dogs. We have trainer Mikie Bowen who is renowned as a top trainer of rocky show horses. Click here to learn more about Mikie's history and accomplishments. FairWinds breeds for show horses whether it be conformation or under saddle.
Most Rocky Mountain Horses are fantastic trail buddies and we have and love those but we strive for the added bonus of a true performance show horse.

We ride these horses with ease around our bluegrass farm just outside Lexington Kentucky
We are also a very competitive show barn and

Storm Warning, our foundation stallion. He is a registered Rocky Mountain
International Champion in both under saddle and conformation divisions.
He is also the winner of the prestigious Sam Tuttle
