This is Merlin. We found him amongst a herd of goats. Boy did he smell bad. At first we couldn't brush him or put a halter on him. A child with ADHD immediately fell in love and immediately learned to be calm and quiet so as to get near Merlin to brush him.
This is Pokey. We acquired him when animal control informed of horses needing a home. He was small and cute and Avalon needed someone else to share the workload for the smaller riders. Turns out you need to be brave to ride him cause he "bounces". He also likes to lick.
Here is Pal. Controversy at the track brought her to us and her owner was sick. She is the great grand daughter of Secretariot himself. She is now teaching riders how their emotions affect the horse
This is Storm. He is a big thoroughbred. He used to give rides to the bigger people but can no longer do it. He is 23 but it hasn't slowed him down much. He is for more experienced riders.
Meet Montana. He has a lot of fans. He is a blast to ride. He will do whatever you want him to do. Easy going. He does have Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome but as long as you don't pressure him he 's the best. He is a jumper and some of our riders have just begun to jump 2 feet with him.
This is Avalon and Gallahad. Avalon gives our smaller riders their start. She is fairly easy to ride. Our resident Halflinger. Gallahad found his way here after a bowed tendon ended his racing career. He was a Harness racer. He adapted well to riding but still needs work with his canter. He is a solid trail horse. He has a fairly big trot thought his is learning to slow it down.
This is smokey. Smokey Smokey Smokey. He likes to consider himself the barn clown but the same jokes everyday. Come on. Anyway his previous owner said he was too slow to race. So here he is. He is also for the more experienced but improving daily.
Nibbles and Prince are quite the pair.
This is Mercedes and Meaghan. Found them on the side of the road thought I would take them in. Just Kidding. Mercedes was leased to us and when the owner knew she was in a good home she gave her to us. Mercedes shows no mercy. She makes sure to teach you well and is very demanding that your skills be accurate. She has turned out many a fine rider.
