Meet The Horses

Hello, I'm Ben! I am an Arabian gelding. I have been there and done that. I was a race horse when I was young and retired due to a leg injury. Since my recovery, I have been in gymkhanas, have jumped a few low jumps, and have been on countless trail rides in the mountains. I know how to collect, do flying lead changes, rollbacks, and can be ridden without a bridle or saddle! I love children and I know the most important part of my job is to be dependable, and that's exactly what I am. I am a great confidence builder for timid children. Also, I'll do ANYTHING for a treat - including a few special tricks!
Hello, We're Biscuit and Gravy! We're are the two cutest miniature horses you'll ever meet! We help students learn about grooming, ground work, and ground driving. We also give pony rides to ages 3 and under! We love our job and can't wait to meet you!
Howdy, I'm Bandit! I'm a black paint gelding with one striking blue eye. I've been a trail ridin' horse most of my life, nothing bothers me! I'm laid back and ready for a ride anytime! I am very eager to please my rider. I don't like heavy hands though, I will toss my head to let you know that you are putting too much pressure on my mouth. Don't worry though, once the pressure is gone I'm perfectly happy to do what is asked of me. It takes a good push to get me to canter, but once you and I get our rhythem down I'll do anything you ask me to do! I've had riders of all ages and abilities ride me. Can I help improve your riding ability too?
Hi there, I'm Anira and I am a paint horse princess. Please come brush me and comb my mane and tail, I'll stand in the same spot all day long if it means that I get to look pretty afterward! I like riders that are kind and patient with light hands because it takes me a little while before I want to trot or canter. I'd prefer to walk or play follow the leader. Do you know your groundwork? It's kind of like homework, but MUCH more fun. You see, people use ground work to communicate to us horses before they get on our backs. I am good at teaching people how to use body language too. When you come visit, please oh please, don't forget to bring that brush! Apples and carrots are also a favorite of mine. Kate has to make a hard decision. She feels I would be happier with a single, consistant rider working with me. So she is planning to list me for sale, but only to a horse knowledgable home. She says I deserve the best care ever. She has spoiled me, but she sure does have a lot of different riders on me and my training hasn't been, what she calls "consistant" and I've gotten away with being lazy. (I don't think that's a bad thing!) To be honest, I think I'd rather not be a lesson horse anyway. Will you be my single favorite person and give me a loving home?!
Hello, My name is Sky! I am a Spotted Saddle Horse. I have a lovely gait but I require an intermediate or advanced rider because I am not very confident with someone on my back. However I am really good on a lead line! I'll follow the handler ANYWHERE. This means I am good for kids if I am being lead. Kate let me be a camp horse for the first time in the summer of 2014 and I absolutely LOVED it. I am also currently in training for tricks, equine agility, and other fun liberty acts. I help teach people about ground work and horse language (body language). By the way, I absolutely love being at the center of attention, especially if treats are involved! So please be sure to bring an extra carrot just for me, ok?
Hi y'all, the name is Buck. I'm a buckskin quarter horse. I am great for timid children, I sense that they need an extra calm horse for them to gain their confidence. I need a confident rider to do anything faster than a walk, I tend to have a fast trot and am sensetive to leg cues. I'll let you know that I have a big canter, it takes a strong, solid seat to keep me in rythem. Like Bandit, I don't like my mouth pulled on too hard. Light hands are the key. I'll try do to everything you ask me to do. I would love to help your riding ability improve as well as your ground work skills. I am very level headed and calm, but have the energy for those that seek a little more speed. C'mon out, I can't wait to meet y'all!
Hello Everyone. I'm Doctor Pepper aka "Doc" or "Pepper". I am a 29 year old sorrel quarter horse. I arrived at the ranch in February of 2012 because my former owner couldn't care for me any longer. I don't have many teeth left so I am fed a special diet of soaked beet pulp pellets and alfalfa pellets 3 times per day. I have a little arthritis in my joints these days, but on my good days I love to trot up to you and see if you have a special treat just for me! When you visit the ranch, ask to groom me or take me for a little walk, I really enjoy all the attention I can get.
Hi Everyone! I'm a gorgeous sorrel Paint gelding with 4 white stockings and a bald face. I have class and charm. The name is Joe, or Joe-Joe, as I'm often called. I also have another nickname nowadays, which is "Curious Joe", because I investigate everything and am very attentive to my surroundings. I am used to help intermediate and confident beginner's learn how to improve their horsemanship skills. I easily move forward so it takes a solid seat and kind hands to keep me in rythem. I've learned from my best friend, Buck, how to be calm at the walk for young riders. I love when kids come give me hugs, I'm very careful around them since I am a bit tall. Hey, if ya come out to the ranch, would ya bring a peppermint just for me?! They're my FAVORITE! I am so excited to meet you!
