HEART - Very fancy APHA red dun and white tobiano
mare. Flashy Pinto markings. Very well balanced.
Really cute face, beautiful neck, textbook perfect
legs and feet. Can show barefoot. No need for shoes. If
you want to win the Medium Hunter Pony In Hand class, Haunted
Heart is your girl. I don't know where a judge could fault
this fine mare! Haunted Heart's disposition is as sweet,
willing, and consistent as it can be. She loves
attention. "Haunted Heart" stands 13-1 7/8 hands, and is
such a pretty mover, she will excel in any "A" circuit Medium
Pony Hunter or Children's Hunter Pony Division. This
little mare has it all! (Her 3/4 sister
"K G Masquerade" was always in the top
ribbons on the "A" Large Pony Hunter circuit in Canada,
and "Haunted Heart" is just as talented.) Come meet this
sweet mare and you'll take her home for sure! By "Halloween"
(APHA), out of "Catch My Heart" (APHA - "Atahi"
daughter). A really smart buy under $30,000. (One season
over fences and she's a high five-figure pony!) This pony
will make you a "star"!
DESIRE - 1996 APHA sorrel and white tobiano mare. "Cute"
doesn't do justice in describing this exceptional mare,
but it's the first thing that strikes you about her. She
has stunning Paint markings, exquisite conformation, and
the most endearing personality you'll ever see. She is out
of an extremely well bred 13 hand Quarter Horse mare, and
she is the only direct "Atahi" offspring to stay under 13-2
hands for the medium pony hunters! Hearts Desire is a big
enough mover and long enough bodied for a small adult to
train and school. With her good mind, you could have her
ready to show in 60 days. If you're looking for a mare that
your child can take to take to the "A" shows, you should
seriously consider this flashy girl. By "Atahi" (APHA -
AHSA Champion Sire), out of "Little Bit Glo" (AQHA). A great
buy at $5,500.
GAL - 1993 APHA chestnut and white tobiano/overo mare.
This is one of the prettiest marked little mares you'll

muscular body, perfect legs, and a 'ton-of-presence'. She
loves being handled, and is a real 'people' horse. She stands
13-1 1/2 hands, so will be just the right size for your
youngsters. She is an athletic little girl that will make
a flashy medium pony hunter or will excel as a
child's Western pleasure pony. With this mare's outstanding
pedigree, she will also be a valuable addition to your breeding
herd. By "Ebony Heart" (APHA), out of "Steal My Heart" (APHA).

This colt is definitely stallion material! He is

legs, a lovely neck and shoulder, and a nice hip. He is

G MIRAGE - 1994 APHA chestnut and white tobiano stallion.
Very fancy Pinto Colored Sport Pony! By "Halloween" (APHA
sorrel and white overo stallion), out of "Sugar Blues" (APHA
palomino and white tobiano mare - "Atahi's" full sister).
There are not many horses born each year that have the ability
to become a successful stallion. An animal needs that combination
of flawless conformation, athletic ability, a trainable
mind, and that intangible characteristic "charisma". "K
G Mirage" has all of these qualities! He has beautiful coloring,
the prettiest head and neck you'll ever see, is very refined
while maintaining substantial bone, and has the very correct
conformation and flowing movement to model. He should put
a wonderful flowing stride and beautiful pinto markings
on your fancy Pony Hunter,Quarter Pony, and Sport Pony mares!
He stands 14 hands. His full sister "K
G Masquerade", was always in the top ribbons on
the Canadian, "A" large pony hunter circuit. "K G Mirage"
is just as talented, and if anything, more beautiful! If
you choose, he has a very bright future in the show ring.
He has an even more brilliant future siring Champion Sport
Ponies and "A" Circuit Hunter Pony winners. Mirage's beautiful
pinto tobiano markings are just "icing" on the cake! Have
"K G Mirage" sire your next Devon Champion! Breeding fee
HEART - 1996 APHA dark bay and white tobiano stallion.
By "Close To Heart" (APHA), out of "Skips Dixie"
(APHA) - (Click for pedigree).
If you're looking for an exquisitely marked, world
caliber stallion, this is a fellow you really need to see!
He is 65% dark bay and 35% white, with his color placed
beautifully. He has a lovely head with a strongly pronounced
jaw and a beautiful shallow mouth. His eyes are dark with
a perfectly centered blaze. This young stallion's conformation
is flawless! "Dixie Heart's" pedigree boasts countless World
and National Champions on both sides! You've already heard
a bit about his sire, "Close to Heart", and his outstanding
working blood, but to top it off, his dam, "Skips Dixie"
(a multiple Halter winner and great working mare), is an
own daughter of the late, great Quarter Horse sire
"Sir Raleigh"! "Sir Raleigh" was the sire of multiple;
AQHA World Champions (in both Halter and Performance), AQHA
Champions, Superior Halter Horses, and Superior Performance
Horses (in Western Pleasure, Hunter Under Saddle, Working
Hunter, Pleasure Driving, Hunter Hack, Western Riding, and
Trail). He sired countless Register Of Merit horses. "Sir
Raleigh" was also the sire of "Skips Sierra Nick", the winner
of the 'Copenhagen/Skoal Superhorse' award at the AQHA World
Show. (A 13 page production record on "Sir Raleigh" is available
upon request.) This outstanding stallion prospect is one
of those few horses in the nation that really has
the ability to sire winners in both the halter and
a variety of performance classes. He should make an outstanding
reining horse, with the great looks to "knock-the-socks-off"
the judges, and the "cow-blood" to easily get his points
in cutting or team penning. It's seldom you find all of
these qualities in one package! Introductory breeding fee
G BRAVEHEART - 1996 APHA bright chestnut and white tobiano
stallion. By "Ebony Heart" (APHA black stallion), out of
"Touch My Heart" (APHA chestnut and white tobiano mare).
This is one of the best made, most beautifully marked stallion
prospects I've seen in the United States in years. "K G
Braveheart" has "APHA Champion" written all over him! He
stands 15-1 hands. "Brave" will make a really flashy
reiner. He has also shown an interest in working cattle.
He's 'catty' in his movement, and has the most gorgeous,
long, white, full mane you've ever seen! ("K G Braveheart"
is very versatile in his abilities and when worked over
fences, has lovely, correct form. He is extraordinary in
all three gaits. Hunter mare owners will love him!) His
legs are wonderful (correct, plenty of bone, and great feet),
his body is well muscled with proper angles to be a superior
athlete, and his graceful neck and beautiful head set off
an outstanding package! To top off these bold physical qualities,
he has a sweet, inquisitive attitude. The kind that begets
a stallion who is willing, easy to handle, and develops
into a brilliant performer and breeder. He works beautifully
under saddle, and has proved to be intelligent, light, and
eager to please. (Last summer, a 14 year old girl exercised
him under saddle everyday.)
is line-bred "Atahi", and should mark his get with all of
the outstanding traits Karen Griffith Farms has been working
to achieve over the last thirty years. Make a name for yourself
in the show ring and breeding world that others spend a
lifetime attaining! Introductory breeding fee $500.

II - 1999 APHA jet black and white tobiano stallion.
You can tell by his name how this spectacular young
stallion has been evaluated! "Atahi II" is Big, Black, and
Beautiful! For twenty-six years the name "Atahi" had belonged
to one horse only! I've added a 'II' after the name to describe
just how perfect this stud is! He is 70% black and 30% white.
His markings are fantastic, and his conformation is faultless!
He has an exceptionally sweet, willing disposition.
He is a double grandson of "Atahi". "Atahi II" is the best
balanced, highest quality black and white stallion (tobiano
or overo) of his age that I've ever seen. I feel he will
produce the next (fifth) generation of successful, sound,
beautiful, Paint horses at Karen Griffith Farms.
by "Ebony Heart" (APHA black stallion-outstanding own son
of "Atahi", AHSA Champion Sire), out of "Win My Heart" (APHA dark bay and white, homozygous, tobiano
mare-one of "Atahi's" best daughters). Keep in mind that
the great horses like Leo, Wimpy, etc., etc., were produced
by this half brother, half sister mating of prepotent, genetically
correct sires. I waited 20 years to line breed "Atahi" offspring.
I wish I had begun sooner, but I'm old fashioned, and wanted
to breed to a large variety of mares to make sure there
were no 'fluke' genes there to crop up. You've probably
heard the old saying....."You could breed that horse to
a hay wagon and make a race horse! " Well, "Atahi" has proven
to be one of those genetically superior stallions. With
"Atahi II's superb genetics, absolutely flawless conformation,
willing disposition, and beautiful coloring, he should stamp
his offspring with all of the outstanding qualities that
Karen Griffith Farms has worked so diligently to achieve
over the last 30 years. Introductory breeding fee $750.
