Sophia is a tri-colored paint in her early 20s that came to us as a rescue horse in need of a permanent home. She was very skinny and needed corrective shoeing but was otherwise healthy. She is a graceful mover with a lot of energy, and has a sweet disposition. We believe she is a Quarab, or part Arabian and part American Painted Pony. While she is not yet a part of the program, we hope to add her in the future for some of our more advanced riders.
Bixby is a 14 year old miniature horse who was donated to our program by a generous veteran. He loves being groomed and getting pampered. You will often find him snuffling in pockets for treats! He is perfect for those who are timid around horses.
Ellie is a 17 year old mare who came to our program via donation with her buddy Bixby. She is an American Painted Pony who has a lovely disposition. She loves being around people (especially when you have an apple for her!) and is one of our sweetest girls.
Sky is our handsome 25 year old Saddlebred. He is a retired harness race horse who joined us in fall 2020. He is a total gentleman. We love to pair him with our new riders due to his patient disposition and willing attitude.
Lily is a our 9 year old Belgian Draft horse who was rescued from slaughter. She is young and loves to play but when it's time to work she mellows down and loves to do her job. She is our biggest horse, standing at 16.3 hh.
This little pony is the newest addition to our program. She is 9 years old and Amish raised. She is as quiet and polite as they come when working, but has a sassy side in her field. She pulls a cart and can give lessons to little ones.
Danny is the newest addition to the herd. He is a 24 year old Quarter Horse with a lot of personality- he nudges anyone near him for attention! Danny is a great teacher, who likes to get moving. He is co-owned by Pam Worobey and a wonderful student.
Juniper is our first foal at the farm, born to Ginger on May 20th 2022. Juniper (or Junie for short) is an American Painted Pony crossed with a Gypsy Vanner. Orphaned at 7 weeks old, she's a smart cookie with a fighting spirit. While she won't be able to be ridden for a few years, our students are enjoying the opportunity to learn about foals, training from scratch, and learning about Junie's extroverted personality.
Our founding horse Ginger, a beautiful painted pony and a farm favorite, passed away July of 2022. As a spunky and opinionated little mare, she pushed Julie to learn about training and communication with horses so much that Julie is now able to teach others these skills. She passed on her legacy and spunky attitude to her baby Juniper. While Ginger is no longer with us, we have her to thank for laying the foundation for the horsemanship we teach today.
Oscar is a 22 year old gentle natured Cremello pony who is leased to our program. With a calm demeanor and balanced canter, he is a great confidence booster for our students. He can be seen hanging out with his pal Barculo (a privately boarded horse) anytime he isn’t in the barn for programming.
Hank the Tank is owned by a student who is generous enough to share him with us. As an early 20s stocky Morgan/Quarter horse cross, he can carry any size rider. Hank prefers to go slow and steady which makes him great in our therapy program, or for those who need to build their confidence in the saddle.
Woody is a 26 year old chestnut Quarter horse who is leased to us long term. As a former Double H camp horse, Woody enjoys working with young kids and can be a great confidence booster in the arena learning to trot and canter, on a first trail ride, or in lead line lessons for our special needs programming.
