About us. My name is Ruth Shipley. I have been doing Civil War reenactments since 2009. My husband Garrett Shipley started reenacting in 2010. Over the years we went through a few horses to find the right horses that would do what we love. We realized we were not the only ones who struggled with this. We have found their are certian traits needed in a horse to do Reenacting. Not all horses gun break. We select from the best quality of gaited horses to train so you do not have to spend yrs trying to find that perfect horse. We understand it is no fun when your horse refuses to go into a sword fight sometimes Rearing. We know what its like to dance in front of cannons or your horse takes off at the firing of your pistol. We been there and this is why We started Go For Broke Gaited Horses. Please contact us for your needs. We have new horses in each month.
