Izzy is a red snowflake Appaloosa and she's over 30 years old. She is mainly used for trail riding; but Izzy will help with riding lessons only when we are teaching something specific that she can demonstrate very well. Izzy is very robust and one of the largest horses we have.
Tonto is a sorrel and white tobiano paint who has been trained and used as an all around cow and ranch horse. He is a handy fella with lots of wits about him. Tonto is used for birthday parties because he is so easy-going& he has flashy color for great pictures. He works with all riding levels.
E. Z. Mr. Breezy aka "Breeze"
Big Breeze is our tallest lessons horse. Retired from Hunter/jumper competition and lessons, and formerly trained as a western pleasure horse, Breeze has the smoothest demeanor. He is also 100% hearing impared which brings a proven element of body language as a means of communication.
Good Ol' Tux
Tux is a sorrel 17 year old quarter horse mix gelding and is definitely the class clown. Tux brings a smile to our faces because he never really tries to be a clown, he is just naturally goofy and we love him for it. Tux does a little bit of everything and is safe enough to babysit as well. Tux is a go-to horse during our horse shows. His favorite event is 'buddy pick-up',
video of Tux coming soon so stay tuned...
And then there is this guy: "BILLY BLUE BUTT"
Billy is our resident pain in the derriere goat that lives in the barn. He does not doing riding lessons. But if we can figure out a way to get a saddle on him maybe he can start to earn his keep. So far all he is good for is making the kids giggle and driving us all crazy!
Smyth N Wesson aka "Smitty"
Smitty is by far the reining favorite among the little students. He adores kids and attention and it shows in how much he tries to please the students. Smitty is used for most every beginner student to learn the basics on. He never argues with the program and seems to know how important and loved he is.
video of Cricket coming soon....stay tuned
Meet the Horses
Dakota Man aka "Kota"
Kota is a black quarter horse gelding who has been a 'babysitter' his whole life. Kota will do a little bit of everything that we work on with students. He has proven himself to be a horse that the students can manage on their own during a show/event without much adult supervision. He is good for giving them a feeling of independence. He also enjoys eating cake and being a unicorn for parties.
video of Dakota coming soon...stay tuned
Dudes Wicket Cricket
Cricket is a 6 year old caramel line back dun/appaloosa mix mare. She is Trey's little sister and Izzy's daughter. She LOVES to go on trail rides and being around kids. Her motto is "What's the rush?" That makes her a great beginner rider's horse.
Peppys Cinnamon Bar aka "Charlotte"
Charlotte is our one true blue barrel racing mare who teaches intermediate students the process of racing. She is sweet and lovable and gentle while teaching this skill but will turn on her speed when asked.
PSSSST....there is a strong possibility our Charlotte is going to be a MAMA in March....stay tuned!!! THINK BLUE EVERYONE!!! We want a Colt!
Trey is an Appaloosa/ Quarter Horse mix that has been trained in roping, cutting and team penning. Trey was the last horse that Bobbi's father ever sat upon and last one he owned. He is a dream to ride and so smooth! Trey works with all riding levels.
