Appaloosa Horses

Leopard Appaloosa Quarter Horses

Appaloosa Quarter Horses are pretty rare, with the appaloosa bloodlines only recently introduced to the quarter horse breeding. Many of these horse Appaloosa Quarter Horses can be traced back to the horses of the native american Nez Perce tribe. Below you can see some stunning examples of Leopard Appaloosa Quarter Horses.

Leopard Rock Sport Horse Appaloosas

The Home of Sport Horse Appaloosas in Africa - For twenty five years Leopard Rock has consistently produced high quality, colourful, purebred horses bred to compete in the Olympic disciplines of dressage, eventing and show jumping which are usually Thoroughbred and Warmblood dominated areas of equine sport. Emphasis is placed on correct conformation, superb movement, rideability and, very importantly, a tractable temperament while still having that necessary spark to compete at high level. If you are looking for a sane, intelligent, easy to work with, colourful equine athlete—we know what it takes to create a horse with both the conformation and the ability to succeed in the various disciplines.
Leopard Rock Sport Horse Appaloosas
Breeders of Appaloosas usually have to continuously cross breed to Thoroughbreds and Warmblood / Thoroughbred mixes to try and achieve and maintain what we have in our purebred Appaloosas - size, bone and ability. Most so-called Appaloosa Sport Horses are simply hybrids - genetically much higher than 50% non-Appaloosa blood, especially if both parents are crossbreeds themselves. We do not cross breed to Warmbloods or Thoroughbreds as we have no need to. Our horses are unique in that there is minimal cross breeding in our pedigrees, and where present, it is some generations back and only to the crème de la crème of proven stock, chosen for their conformation, size and athleticism. Because of this, our horses have very strong Appaloosa genes for temperament, hardiness and colour. You can be sure of getting a purebred, bone fide Sport Horse with the very best pedigree possible, and all the desirable Appaloosa characteristics which are not lost through cross breeding.

Leopard Rock Sport Horse Appaloosa Stud

Leopard Rock has always been a small, very select stud. In the past few years, we have imported three fillies and a colt from the world-renown line of JG Appaloosa Sport Horses and will solely concentrate on this premier sport horse line (the only stud in the Southern Hemisphere to do so and one of the few in the world), along with our All Breed Champion Appaloosa stallion, Many Moons who has proven his worth as a prepotent and unmatchable sire of genuine, purebred Sport Horse Appaloosas. Our foals all originate from the best mare lines, we place utmost importance on breeding with the top Appaloosa Sport Horse mares - both in phenotype and genotype. The proof of our superior breeding programme can be seen in the foals we produce. See the page on Linebreeding.

Maluti Toby`s Many Moons - Appaloosa Stallion At Stud

By Maluti Toby`s Fourspot (Doll`s Toby, USA) and out of Maluti Cherry (Southern Beau, USA). 166cm mahogany near-leopard with substantial bone and body. He is ultra correct. Many Moons has superlative dressage movement with remarkable elevation and suspension - he is so naturally talented in this sphere. The only horse I`ve seen to do perfect pirouettes at liberty in his paddock, just because he can! A very pleasing top line, and a comfortable, effortless ride with a huge, ground covering stride. He is a breathtaking stallion with presence to match - he radiates class. He is regularly compared to a quality Warmblood due to his size and movement, but he is all Appaloosa!
Maluti Toby`s Many Moons - Appaloosa Stallion At Stud
Many Moons is the first and only Appaloosa stallion in Africa to date to compete in the All Breed arena and win his classes under UK judge in a class of 10 - the first and only time shown in hand, a testament to his superb conformation. One of only three Appaloosas who are All Breed winners in the country, the first being the first Appaloosa foal we ever bred, Leopard Rock Conquistador and more recently, our import JG Diana, who won All Breed Colts and Fillies Yearling classes at the prestigious Horse of the Year Show and was All Breed Champion 1 - 3 year old at the Autumn Gold Cup in 2010 in very large classes - these shows being the top National shows.

Many Moons` dam Cherry produced Leopard Rock Déjà vu (by Leopard Rock Fort Apache) for us, Many Moons` half sister. A wonderful mare line, Cherry was a grand daughter of Southern Beau (USA) a black and white 16hh ApHC import, through her dam Beau`s Cherokee.

All Many Moons foals to date have been black, brown, bay dun, dun and grulla. Coat patterns include leopard, near leopard, large spotted blanket, snowcap and spotted snowflake blanket. He has a flowing, full mane and tail, which his foals inherit too, and a beautiful expressive head and ears. Many Moons is a prepotent sire and his foals bear his stamp. They are super-athletic like he is, with excellent, correct legs and feet. Some of his greatest characteristics he passes on are his intelligence, presence, and that extravagant movement. It is more than evident in his first2 foal out of Wap`s Mamma Mia - LR Virginia and LR Victory Moon - that, genetically, he crosses superbly with the JG Wap-Dynasty of the JG Appaloosa line, which produces Warmblood-size Appaloosa Sport Horses, keeping the trademark Wap`s Spot 2 genotype and adding his own excellent characteristics.

JG Legacy - Appaloosa Horse

By Wap`s Millennium and out of Wap`s Confetti, both multiple Champions. Half brother to Wap Spot and Wap`s Infinity through their mutual dam Confetti, both stallions standing at JG Appaloosas. Wap`s Reflection is his great grandsire. Bred by JG Appaloosas, Pa, USA and imported at 16 months. Sensational red dun near-leopard. 16.1hh, with lots of natural muscle and bone, wide sprung ribs and luxurious mane and tail. He has fabulous uphill movement in all three paces like his half brother Wap Spot - he shows very good extension, cadence, elevation and suspension which is becoming even more evident as he matures. He is well built with large hocks, powerful hindquarters and a stunning topline.

Beautiful sculpted head and a naturally arched neck with a perfect length of rein. His dam Confetti has tremendous movement herself as does his sire. Legacy is an extremely handsome young stallion who is maturing very nicely, he is becoming a leopard and has massive spots (the size of the palm of ones hand over his body with striped spots extending throughout his mane. He has a very people-friendly temperament. A character to work with, described as ‘personality plus`, responsive and intelligent with loads of stallion presence and class. He is the perfect cross for top competitive Thoroughbred and Warmblood mares as he is quadruple bred Wap`s Spot 2 and will certainly pass on the size, conformation and colour and be able to perpetuate the authentic ‘JG-Wap` look through his offspring, whatever breed he is cross bred to. Legacy`s sire, the inimitable Wap`s Millennium, passed away in July ‘14. JG Legacy is to the best of our knowledge his only son standing at stud. Legacy is also the only offspring ever from the Wap`s Millennium / Wap`s Confetti cross and is genetically irreplaceable. FPD 87%. .

Wap`s Spot - Multi National and World Champion Sire

Unfortunately, these are the only surviving photos of Wap`s Spot 2 from the 70`s and 80`s. These did not do him justice. You can get a good idea of the amount of bone he had and how very correct his conformation was.

Wap`s Spot 2 was purchased as a yearling colt. He was shown extensively on the ApHC circuit and competed on the open hunter circuit. At the ApHC shows he earned many high point year end awards in conformation as well as performance. He was very versatile under saddle, incredibly athletic, and was shown in both English and Western on the Appaloosa Circuit. He qualified for the World in many divisions for several years.
Waps Spot - Multi National and World Champion Sire
At the hunter shows, he opened the eyes of very conservative competitors, as well as the judges, to the wonderful, talented Appaloosa. Stallions were seldom seen at hunter shows in those days, especially stallions with spots... His manners and talent under saddle were impeccable, consequently, he acquired an enormous fan club. Ninety-nine percent of the time, Wap`s Spot 2 was the only Appaloosa showing against large classes containing mostly Thoroughbreds. His quiet, flawless rounds over fences, natural carriage, and free, relaxed movement were appreciated and rewarded by the judges. In many ways, Wap`s Spot 2 "broke the ice" for Appaloosas to follow in rated competition, his obvious talent overshadowing the strong prejudices against colored horses at the time.

Most important was Wap`s Spot 2`s prepotency as a sire. He consistently produced tall, quiet, intelligent off-spring with his natural balance, flowing gaits, talent over fences, free elastic shoulders, automatic lead changes, and a large desire to please.

His offspring quickly became popular, and a common sight on the AHSA rated circuit. We recall, with a smile, two "railbirds" at an AHSA hunter breeding competition who were looking into a ring with many Wap-Paloosa horses in the class. One person commented to the other, "I didn`t know this was an Appaloosa show!"

Wap`s Spot 2 has earned his renown as a sire the hard way. His offspring are very easy, quiet, and rideable. Therefore, they are sought after by the top trainers for their junior and amateur clients in the hunter and sport horse industry. They have rarely competed in Appaloosa only competition. Their show records and impressive accomplishments have been typically earned competing against the predominantly Thoroughbred and Warmblood horses in open rated competition. These types of show records were not recognized or recorded by his breed association until very recent years. Many of the outside mares bred to him have been non-Appaloosa mares; the resulting foals destined for AHSA and USDF competition. These mare owners often have no need, or do not qualify to register the resulting foals with the ApHC. If you were to search within the data banks of the ApHC, you would find very little recorded relating to our unique horses. In spite of this relative "invisibility" with his breed, Wap`s Spot 2 fame as a sire of champions, competing and winning at national levels against top flight horses of all breeds, has continued to spread the world over…
