"Pearl" is proudly owned by Bailey Mapes. Bailey has done almost all of the work on finishing Pearl and patterning her on the barrels. They have won several awards and lots of $$ in their first season competing together!
Handsome is one of our lesson horses and he takes care of the beginner riders. He can go from extra careful and slow moving for the smallest of riders to loping the barrels for our adult riders. He is that horse that everyone looks for to build their confidence on. He is extremely quiet and can be trusted with riders that have no prior experience with horses at all. He is very important to our program and is one of the special ones!
Peanut is 20 years young and has one of the most important jobs in the barn. His owner, Cate, is 6 years old and is learning to barrel race. Peanut takes great care of her and is playing a huge role in Cate learning to ride and also having a pony to love!
Luna is 15 years old and, as we like to call her, she is a bucket list horse. She is owned and loved by Katy Maynard, who at 60 years old decided she would own a horse again and ride after a 40 year hiatus from riding. She then wanted to learn to barrel race and Luna has been the perfect horse for her to learn and compete on. They also enjoy as much trail riding as they can do!
"Blue" is a coming 5yr old AQHA gelding. He is proudly owned by Ann Muelheims. They will be competing in WP and HMS in 2017. Blue will also be shown in HUS and Trail!
"Markie" is owned and loved by her main rider Julia and the rest of the Patton family. She has been a racehorse and then had a couple of years of dressage training and now she is teaching Julia how to ride and show in English Pleasure and English Equitation. They have moved up to the 13 & under division and won their first equitation class at that level! They have also competed in a couple of Dressage shows and won the junior rider division at training level! MARKIE IS FOR SALE!!
"Ellie" is owned and loved by the Packard family. She is shows in Open Trail and Pleasure with Jennifer and since Samantha is in college, her mom Amy is taking the reins in Amateur SMS, Pleasure and HMS!
"Dreamer" is now owned by Supercharge Performance and is a fantastic lesson horse. She teach many kids and adults to take their riding to the next level. We are very fortunate to have her!
