She is by the outstanding stallion Junior Command who has 54 Performance Points and is a Superior Cutting horse. This horse is bred to go any direction!

Due to Mander's age, we regretfully are no longer breeding outside mares. We are sure you will find something in our Sale Barn, though! Make us an offer we can't refuse...you won't regret it!

We showed Mander in the local open, reining and ABRA shows in 1999 and 2000. We were always in the trophies and ribbons. Most people didn't even know he was a stallion! This horse is all heart and gives 110% no matter what direction you point him. You can pull him out of the pasture once every six months, hop on, he drops his head and down the road you go! If you are a youth or adult that has always dreamed of training your own horse - you won't be disappointed with the willingness and great mind he passes on to his foals.

We are overwhelmed with the numerous emails and phone calls we have received from horse lovers who have bought Mander babies. They love their great minds, gentle and willing to please attitude. One of our first foals is in North Dakota roping. The owners say they have never had a quieter horse in the box. Trainers and instructors are even putting green riders on 2 and 3 year olds. If Mander could earn a point for every positive comment we've had on him and his foals, he'd be a World Champion...which he is in our eyes.

Mander has a gorgeous head, good bone, feet, and straight legs. He is very fast, yet smooth, and has a natural laid back Western Pleasure way of moving. He has a "creme" gene and is dominant to the black mane and tail gene. Mander is full of dun factor and has never produced a sorrel or chestnut. He is siring approximately 90% color. If you are looking for a "do anything" horse, don't pass up the chance to have a part of Sterling Command on your team - he will definitely put you in the winner's circle!
