Our History

Purdue Stables was established through the inspiration of Purdue’s Rocky Dancer, an amazing stallion who has proven himself as the top family trail horse and show horse. He has been on countless trails and won countless blue ribbons, including the title of 1997 RMHA International Master Stallion Under Saddle. Rocky Dancer has produced generations of horses that carry on his spirit on the trail and in the show ring — horses that become part of your soul like no other.


Purdue Stables is located in Irvine, Kentucky, home of Sam Tuttle, and “Where the Bluegrass Kisses the Mountains.”  Purdue Stables strives to breed and train quality Rocky Mountain horses to preserve and promote the Rocky Mountain breed. The love of the horse and the breed is the foundation and motivating factor of Purdue Stables.

Life at Purdue Stables is Truly the Pot of Gold at the End of the Rainbow
