Lesson Horses


Hobbs - a handsome, aged mixed breed gelding,  Hobbs is a stout 14.2hh available for lessons for beginners and intermediates of all ages.  He's smooth gaited with a lovely, slow canter for advanced beginners yet knows enough to be enjoyable for more advanced riders to work on their equitation with.  

Fahne - Our 15.2hh homebred successful broodmare is pulling double duty in 2016 and has joined the lesson program.  Her excellent gaits and workmanlike attitude will suit intermediate and advanced riders.  

Ravenna - 16+hh Canadian Warmblood mare joined the lesson program in 2015.  Novice to advanced adults will enjoy her suspension filled gaits and easy going nature to learn basic dressage and hunter skills, or just to appreciate a quality ride.

Lucy - At 12.2hh this little sweetheart is perfect for the youngsters starting out on the leadline.  She loves jumping too so she is a perfect challenge for more advanced small riders.

Past:

Cayenne - a wonderful addition to our barn, Cayenne is a spunky 25 years +.  At 12.1hh she offers limited lessons to the younger riders.  She is super to get kids used to handling, grooming, and tacking up.  We do lead line and lunge lessons at walk and trot while more advanced small riders can partake in regular lessons with her.  Retired.  RIP 2015.

Wasabi - a 16.2hh Canadian Warmblood mare suitable for the intermediate and advanced riders.  She is well schooled in dressage and does some jumping as well. Sold.
