Penny is a 17 year old grade Paint mare with two beautiful blue eyes. She is very gentle and versatile. She can go from a loping lesson to a lesson with a small child. With the smaller kids, she is careful to trot slowly for them and won't trot for them until she gets the okay from me! She is such a smart and sweet girl! She has been one of my lesson horses for 3 years. She has been used in 4H and out on the trail.
Lacy is a 16 year old Quarter Horse. She is a natural when it comes to dealing with beginners which probably comes from the fact that she came from a dude ranch. This mare is versatile but is great at teaching riders to sit deep in their seat when slowing down because she likes to stop quick!
Thunder is a 21 year old grade gelding. He has a heart of gold and always tries to please his rider. Anyone can ride him. He just has been there done that personality. He does perk up anytime he thinks he is getting a treat like when he sees the grain bucket or it's the end of the lesson.
Ole is our Norwegian Fjord and he is quite the character. He is mister personality and is always into everything. You have to keep an eye on him as he likes to untie himself. He is a great walk/trot horse as he is smooth to ride.
21 Year Old gelding with two blue eyes. He was supposedly a lesson horse a few years ago and is now just getting back to work in our program. He is a cute little gelding standing maybe 13.2 hands with a peppy go getter personality. He has a jarring trot but a nice smooth lope. He is a great horse but isn't one that likes snuggles or too much petting. He just wants to get his job done and go back to eating hay.
Mator is an older gaited gelding who is sweet and honest. He is probably in his mid 20s and is a hard keeper but he loves to get up and go. He hates standing tied. We just keep him in walk/trot lessons due to his age but he welcomes the attention and something to do.
He is a 21 year old grade gelding who is versatile by doing walk, trot, and lope lessons. He is another one that is bombproof, and easy to steer. He is a bit on the sensitive side so currently we have him with those more advanced riders. He hates standing still and can get pushy but does well when he has a job to do.
Homer is a pretty dun gelding who is sweet and laid back. He was used on a dude ranch so he has done and seen it all. He is great for those riders who are emerging walk/trot independent riders.
This mare is 1/4 draft horse and you can see it in her bigger face and feet. She is a very sweet and timid mare who always does what is asked of her.
This small gelding came to us after spending 6 years in a sale barn. They used him to move cows through the sale yard. He loves to be brush and all the attention. He prefers slower lessons and may need a little kick and encouragement to get him to go anywhere.
