STEPPIN ON SPARKS

Are you looking for breeding options this year? At the 2019 VRHA State Championship Show we auctioned A stallion service to Steppin On Sparks with great success, congratulations to the winning bidder Jenny Zylstra. If you are still undecided about who to breed your mare to, why not consider Steppin On Sparks for the coming season?
