Creek Equine Center specializes in Missouri Foxtrotters. Our farm has a
history of over 50 years of selective breeding to produce fine Missouri
Foxtrotters. They are bred and trained to be trail horses and are known
for their disposition, versatility, and people-friendly attitudes. We

the last few years than any other equine breeder.
are a recognized force in the NATRC world by serious competitors already
claiming national and regional championships,
as well as numerous ride wins and placings. Forty horses
with Indian Creek breeding have close to 60,000 competition miles, and
20 horses have attained 43 national championships. I (Bill Hinkebein) accumulated
5,050 miles ridden on Hickory's
Country Gold, who was retired to stud in 1997. Since that time, I
have logged 11,000 additional miles of competitive trail riding, most
of it on offspring of my favorite stallion. In May, 2003, I retired as
head of the agriculture department at North Central Missouri College in
Trenton, Missouri. My wife, Jeanne, retired May, 2005, as principal and
8th grade teacher at Bishop
Hogan Memorial School in Chillicothe, Missouri.
We also have horses
for sale. Check out our fine stallions!
This allows you to breed super dispositions, smooth gaits, and excellent
confirmation into your own horses and color into your offspring.

conditioned classroom and restroom and a 60'x105' indoor riding arena.
