Hannah Montana Loved Him; Now You Can, Too! Meet Her Movie Horse at QuarterFest.

American Quarter Horse Blue Steel Man might just have the best of both worlds, much like his co-star in “Hannah Montana: The Movie,” which is in theaters now.

In the movie, teen sensation Miley Cyrus plays Miley Stewart, a normal teen whose alter-ego is the wildly popular pop star Hannah Montana.

For “Blue,” he’s a normal team-roping horse and family pet who morphed into a popular movie star named “Blue Jeans” when scouts spotted him at a United States Team Roping Championships event not far from Nashville, where the Hannah Montana movie was mostly filmed.

Horse wrangler Rusty Hendrickson said he was looking for a small, pretty gray horse. The 11-year-old 14.3-hand Blue Steel Man fit the bill.

“He’s a nice horse,” Rusty says. And Miley “was very affectionate to him and gave him a lot of petting and rubbing. … A young girl and horses are a pretty good combination.”

After you bring your horse-crazy young kid to QuarterFest to meet Blue Jeans from “Hannah Montana: The Movie,” give him or her a chance to learn about the ins and outs of horsemanship. A fun, hands-on book, Junior Master Horseman, provides children with useful ways and ideas to safely interact with their horse, or the horse they dream of someday owning!

But Blue Jeans, er, Blue, has had plenty of experience with affection from young girls.

His owner, Bobby Brooks of Franklin, Tennessee, has two daughters, Libby Claire, who’s 4, and Elle Margaret, who’s 6. Both of them like to ride, and not surprisingly, both of them are huge Hannah Montana fans.

Bobby says Blue is “very broke and very safe. I’ve got two daughters who like to ride. I can’t have anything that’s not safe for my kids to be around.” He expects it to be a proud moment when he sees his daughters riding Blue in junior rodeos in a few years.

Already, he’s pretty proud of what his home-raised and -trained horse has done.

“Nobody else has ever done anything with him but me. I’m proud of him. … He’s very pretty to look at, a correct-made Quarter Horse. He’s just got a real big hindquarters, and he’s very well-proportioned. He’s pretty.”

Miley echoed those thoughts when she rode up to Bobby aboard Blue. “She just told me she loved him and thought he was beautiful,” he says.

Unfortunately, Bobby’s girls didn’t get a chance to meet their idol, but they saw Miley at the Nashville premiere of “Hannah Montana: The Movie.” And, there on the big screen, the Brooks family, which includes Bobby’s wife, Lori, also saw Blue as his movie role called for him to carry luggage, get chased across a field and remain remarkably calm as a helicopter flew over his head.

“He did great in every way during the movie,” Bobby says. And seeing him on that screen “was real neat. It was a pretty proud moment. It was kind of like one of my kids being up there. He was outstanding.”

Now, AQHA is inviting you to share in that pride. Meet Blue Steel Man, aka the famous Blue Jeans, at QuarterFest, our inaugural equine expo May 1-3 in Murfreesboro, Tennessee.

    Blue Jeans looks like a great horse and it also sure seems like he loves you riding and patting him… so here is a little message saying you shouldn’t give him away, as you two have a great relationship and it’s hard to find another horse like blue or any horse that has a great temper… Don’t give him away please =]
