Our horses are the most important part of our lesson program! Every horse we ride teaches us something, and all of ours are great assistant trainers and are worth their weight in gold! Take a moment to learn about each of them.

Butternut – 2002 14.2h Haflinger mare

 

Butternut is a fun little project mare we got from Long Meadow Equine Rescue. We assume she was previously used to pull a cart, as she came from an Amish auction. After A LOT of schooling, she has turned into a really nice Advanced Beginner/Intermediate lesson pony. While she’s not super comfy to flat, her jump is quite smooth. She does require a firm hand for steering though! Unfortunately, due to her foundering in the past, she will never be allowed regular turnout on grass.

Calvin is from Colby’s Crew Rescue (better known as Ohkaytacos). He’s got a great mind, is a nice size (about 16h) and is pretty comfy. He needs a lot of work on steering and cantering, but trotting and going over little crossrails is going well.
