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 new to our herd of lesson horses. He 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.
Stormy is a timid 19 year old gelding who does well with teenagers and adults. He likes to get to know his riders and likes to welcome anyone who approaches him. He is on the lazy side so he just walks and trot but that makes him a great mount for those riders who tend to overuse their legs. Don't have to worry about him going to fast. Both him and Thunder have been together the last 6 years and are buds.
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.
Fiona is a 14 YO dun quarter horse mare. She is very pretty and she knows it. Is the alpha mare of the herd. She is for those who are more advanced riders as she likes to go. Fiona does great walk/trot with a big stride at a lope. Is great at listening to her rider and does a great job moving off of the riders leg.
He is one of our newest lesson horses. 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.
