Hydrive Cat
Simply a MASTERPIECE: Genetic - Performance - Conformation - Heart - Mind.

Not only is he the best PERFORMING stallion of his generation, but is also the best Bred one.

“From the very beginning I knew Hydrive Cat was special. I have been around a lot of great horses, but none have proven to me to be as consistent, athletic, cow smart, or more talented. He is equally as awesome to look at without a saddle on as he is in the show pen with one on. He is of the utmost quality in every imaginable way!”
~ Hall of Fame Trainer Clint Allen
