Penny is a 18 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 6 years. She has been used in 4H and out on the trail.
Lacy is a 18 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 22 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.
22 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 always checking pockets for snacks and loves to get into the toys in the arena just like Ole!
Theo is a sweet gelding who is 18 years old. We use him with the younger riders to work on steering and beginning trot. He has a quiet demeanor but will start nibbling when bored. We bought him and Marley together and they are best buds.
He is a 22 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 perfect for any level rider but got to be careful as he constantly tries to rub his head on his handler.
Cricket is the old gal of the herd but don't let her age fool you! She can be energetic and test your boundaries. She is a great gal that teaches her riders to be persistent and to not give up. Depending on her mood, she loves to speed around the ring.
Homer is a 23 year old gelding we got from the Beartooth Christian Ranch. He is a sweet, patient, and prefers to go slow. He is a perfect match for those beginner riders learning the ropes.
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 is easy to steer, has a pep in his step, and loves to trot. He is a great horse for those riders needing a little more speed but need to spend more time working on their trot.
This large girl is unique- she is half Halfinger, quarter quarter horse, and quarter Percheron. She has just recently started lessons and is currently with our more advanced riders. She is sweet and energetic.
Samson is our big gentle giant. He is the tallest of the lesson horses at 16.2 hands. He is in his 20s and does great as a confidence builder. He has a great steady eddy personality and floaty trot. He enjoys attention and belly scratches.
Lucy is the youngest of the herd at 16 years old but that isn't the only thing that makes her unique - she is also a Tennessee Walker. She can be a little pushy on the ground but loves to move out and do her running walk. Plus she is as sweet as can be. Her favorite thing is cuddles from the little ones.
Leo is a big boy at 17 hands. He is a 21 year old quarter horse that we just bought from a local horse auction. They were piling kids on him in the ring! He is sweet and timid. He is currently undergoing his evaluation period so hopefully he will join our lesson herd soon.
