Madison Nirenstein Purchases NSBA World Champion KM Time Machine

GoHorseShow would like to congratulate Madison Nirenstein on the purchase of NSBA World Champion KM Time Machine, also known as “Peanut”. The four-year-old, bay gelding is by Machine Made and out of Suddenly Its Time. Ashley Dunbar-Clock showed him in the trail last year at NSBA World and won the Green Junior Trail when he was only three years old. 

“I’ve had my eye out for a great all-around prospect for years and told Charlie [Cole] and Jason [Martin] that if a special one came around, I wanted to know about it,” Madison told GoHorseShow. “They’re pretty hard to come by nowadays. I’ve been patiently waiting for the right horse to come around. Jason told me Peanut reminded him of (AQHA World and Congress Champion) Heza Radical Zip.”

Madison purchased Peanut from Linn Wyatt, so he was already in the barn at Highpoint Performance Horses. “I wasn’t really actively searching, and he wasn’t really actively for sale, but I talked to Ashley, Charlie, and Jason, and we all felt like it would be the perfect fit, so we made it happen.”

 “He is just so cool,” Nirenstein said. “The best way to describe him is sturdy. He knows where his feet are and is unbelievably careful. He’s a phenomenal mover and big enough to do the equitation, eventually. He has an extraordinary lead change, and he’s fancy in the horsemanship already. He’s also just a total sweetheart. For just turning four, I really couldn’t ask for more.” 

Ashley will continue to show Peanut in the junior trail events, Charlie in the green junior western riding, and Madison will show him in the horsemanship. 

“I haven’t been in the horsemanship pen for quite some time, so I’m looking forward to getting back in there. I have my two other horses, Hubbout A Dance (aka Henry) and No Doubt Im Trouble (Danica), and will continue showing them in the other all-around events so that Charlie and Ashley can get him even more solid. We don’t want to push him too hard, too fast. I cannot wait to see what the future of his all-around career holds and couldn’t be more grateful to Linn and all of Highpoint for making this happen.”

Ashley adds, “I’m incredibly excited that Madison has bought Peanut. He is a special horse, and you don’t come across too many of those in this business. I love that he’s just so easy and so kind and wants to be good. I’m looking forward to his future, staying with us here at Highpoint and for Madison’s future on him as he learns all the events.”

Best of luck to Madison and everyone at Highpoint Performance horses with this exciting new team.
