Sawyer Creek Appaloosas is located in
Northern New York at the foothills of the spectacular Adirondack
Mountains. Our horses enjoy 234 acres of meadows, woods, rock
outcrops and streams. We feel this natural environment creates a social, versatile and vigorous
animal. Our select herd contains predominately nationally halter pointed and titled
stock which includes World and National Champions. While most of our horses are highly
colored, our primary emphasis is on quality conformation. Our mares are crossed on
our own select stallions as well as some of the highest quality and most
competitive ApHC and AQHA stallions in the country. As a result, we have
successfully and consistently produced national and world titled horses in a
variety of disciplines. We utilize both modern and foundation bloodlines
only HYPP N/N stock accepted into our program. While most of our horses
have quite extensive show records and the majority of our offspring are sold to
show homes, we are not a show barn. Our focus is on
breeding to better the Appaloosa breed for future generations. The majority of the photographs you
will see are taken by our daughter and are of the horses in their natural environment
Sawyer Creek's long association with the breed began in the 1950's when John's father Rex Kreider began breeding and showing Appaloosas. Rex owned the famous stallions Mane's Blue Eagle, Zebra Dunn and Revel Jr.. Trips with him to buy horses in northern Idaho and showing at the early Nationals are memories which instilled a deep love for the Appaloosa which continues today. Our goal at Sawyer Creek, as it was then, is to breed a competitive, athletic and good natured Appaloosa with a vivid coat pattern and to offer the public top quality stock at prices family's can afford.
