13 year old – 17’2” hand – Gelding

Off The Track Thoroughbred (OTTB)

Specialities: English – Dressage / Flatwork / Hunter/Jumper / Shows / Trail riding

Three Karat’s Kat, otherwise known as Rocky, was rescued 6 years ago after he was being listed as a “free” horse on Craigslist. My friend showed me the ad and we contacted the former owner and asked if they would at least list him for a nominal fee so that no “kill” buyers would find the add and take him over the border. My Friend convinced me to go and see him because she would put him in the pasture with her horses and I decided to just go “look” at him because why not, I could only turn around and leave if I didn’t want to take him home. One look at him in his stall, all alone, and 400 lbs underweight and I decided he was coming home with me come hell or high water. He was mine a week later. Bought for $1.00. In the first year I had him, while getting him to weight, he grew a full hand. In that year, I learned he had raced, was dressage trained and loved peppermints.

Dreamer

black and white horse

16 year old – 15’ hand – Mare

Gypsy Varner

Specialities: Western pleasure / Bareback / Trail riding

Dreamer has been a part of Dupont Derby for the last year. She was found in a Kill Pen by her previous owner and they had half starved her, cut her feathers off of her feet and chopped her mane and tail in half. She spent the last year with her previous owner gaining weight and learning to trust again. Now we have had her and we have found that she loves children. She absolutely adores them and wants to do the best with them. She steps short and quick, like some draft types are want to do, but she loves to please and moves like a dream once she gets moving. She’s a little slow at first, but she really does enjoy getting out to play. She’s been all over the show circuit as a pleasure horse and can walk trails like the best of them.

Bellagio “Bella”

7 year old – 12’ hand – Gelding

Shetland Pony

Specialties: Western / Bareback / English / Trail riding / Shows / Barrels

Bellagio, or Bella, as he is called in the barn, is the best little man in the world. He can do it all! We love that he’s a part of our program and look forward to sharing him with our students. He came to us from a pony ride company. He has yet to let us down. He will walk, trot and canter. He will ride pony’d alongside another horse, walk on a lounge line or ride solo depending on the level of the child who is riding him. He is not scared of anything and will go through and over every obstacle that you put him in or through. He is the best teacher a child could have. He will force the child to control him or he will take over, which for some things is good. He teaches confidence and how to sit properly while riding alone or with help.

Lucy Goosey

4 year old – 14’ hand – Mare

Racking Horse

Specialities: Western riding / Trail riding / Pleasure riding

Lucy Goosey “Lucy”, has a fun and interesting story. She was found in our neighborhood and no one claimed her. We notified all the authorities and after 60 days, we decided she was staying with us. While she has only been with us a short time, we have learned that she is an awesome little horse. She’s fabulous with beginner riders and fun enough for the advanced. She goes through everything she is pointed at and is not scared of anything. We have primarily used her for fun riding, nothing serious yet. But what we have learned is that she rides well under saddle, that kids love her and she is sweet as sweet as can be. She is timid when you walk up to her in the pasture, but once you have a halter on her, she is a complete angel. She also might be pregnant, so who knows, a little spotted gaited horse might be coming! Keep a lookout on our page to know for sure!

Agaml Safal

Arabian

Agaml Safal, is an Arabian Gelding who is very brave indeed. The first time he had ever been out of his pasture or on a horse trailer was when we picked him up from the breeding farm he had been born at! From that day forward, he has had quite the interesting life. He has gone on trail rides being pony’d behind another horse. He has been on horse trailers several times going to fun events to watch and learn and he is even now learning how to pull a cart! This little man is going to be so big for his britches soon we are not sure what is going to stop him! Our ultimate goals with Safal is going to be Endurance riding and Pleasure cart driving. We look forward to all the videos and photos coming up showing how much fun we are having with him!
