PRESENTING: The Story of Caballos de Destino—
A Vanishing Breed by Karen Parker
Following just a few of the Spanish Mustangs bred by Sharron Scheikofsky and Dave Reynolds resulted in 32 pages with over 100 images. This story is a photographic chronicle illustrating a fading western culture and the history and the Spanish Mustangs of Caballos de Destino. The story of Caballos de Destino is closely tied to the SMR and the Cayuse Ranch and showcases our beloved Spanish Mustang breed and their unique history.
The Spanish Mustang helped shape the USA as we know it. Descended of the horse of the Conquistadors, Indian buffalo hunters and war ponys, cavalry mounts and Pony Express Ponys to wild horse of the West, this breed has a rich and illustrious history that forms an important part of our American Heritage. Thanks to a handful of dedicated breeders, who have made it their life's work to preserve these special horses, the breed is still in existence today, albeit on the critical list of rare breeds.
