Jim Wild


Growing up amidst the colorful fields of peonies, irises and daylilies that constituted his family’s three- generation flower business, Jim Wild is responsible for creating the Flying W after first falling head over heels for a boldly colored stallion back in 1956. Combining his enthusiasm for color with a keen eye for conformation and his self-taught knowledge of pedigrees, Jim Wild is the cornerstone to the Flying W’s success in producing numerous National and World Champions.

A strong advocate of the Appaloosa breed, Wild’s work, both on and off the Flying W, focuses on the integrity of good horses and good people. Whether promoting a national champion or attributes of the breed, Jim Wild and the Flying W have proven that loving what you do, smart choices and a lot of sweat equity can transform into an industry-leading program.

Welcome to the Flying W, where the beauty of an Appaloosa is a sight to behold in the eyes of owner Jim Wild and anyone else who has the opportunity to contract the “wildly” contagious attitude of the Flying W program.
