This past Friday we had the absolute pleasure of driving through the picturesque Nantahala Gorge to go shoot a young stallion by the name of Spooks Full Throttle. One thing was crystal clear upon meeting him - he is absolutely STUNNING.
I mean seriously... Conformation for days, right? And I don't know about you, but I need to find out who colors his hair - he has this wicked cool color in his mane and tail that looks like the low-lights us girls pay out the nose for! Crazy beautiful!
Anyway, Throttle is a super cool guy and if you love super cool reining stallions, scroll on!
"I'm ready for my close-up." Throttle is seriously such a good minded guy...
Get to know Spooks Full Throttle:
He is a 2012 stallion sired by Spooks Gotta Gun and out of Boomernic, a maternal sister to Nu Chex To Cash and a full sister to Boomboomvoodoodaddy. He was the 2017 NRHA Rookie Pro World Champion with owner, Daniel Gibbs and was Top 10 at the Quarter Horse Congress in 2017. He was Reserve Champion in the 3YO Challenge at the APHA World Show, and continues to be shown.
The light in this arena was so cool and fun to play around with for these shots!
I love stallions. Like, REALLY love stallions. They're my favorite horses to shoot, but I especially love the kind ones.
Aaaaaand probably my favorite part of the shoot.... You know, besides the awesome shots and footage that came out of it, Daniel asked if I wanted to get on him, and OF COURSE I couldn't resist! This is the first time I have ever ridden a reiner!
Told you he was cool...
SPOOKS FULL THROTTLE is standing to the public in 2018!
Video coming soon!
