Retired Lesson Horses

Casi (Don Casi Mio)

Casi Mio horse hannah -02 1000

Casi was one of our very first and very best lesson and show horses. He’s a 14.1 hand Peruvian Paso Fino x Welsh pony. We all love him so. We got him in 1996 and he taught countless girls and boys before retiring in late 2016 to a wonderful home in Alabama where he can relax for the rest of his days.

Traveler (He’s So Fine)

Traveler is an Arabian gelding and had been on and off our farm since 2000 after he was donated to the lesson program by the Kopacz family. He retired permanently in late 2016 to Louisiana. He was a wonderful teacher for many girls and boys and is dearly missed.

 

Charlie (Good Luck Charlie)

Charlie was a 16.2 h Percheron/QH gelding. He was purchased by the farm in November 2011. He’d been a 3d level dressage horse, a lesson horse, and a trail horse prior to coming to the farm, where he was loved by many as a great intermediate lesson horse with a big heart and lots of “go.” Unfortunately, he has since moved on due to health complications.

Superman (Fly Like Superman)

SupermanSuperman is an 18 year old, 16.3 hands, QH gelding with a sweet, easy personality that everyone loves. He was a very successful 3’6″ horse and was semi-retired to 2′ due to a past tendon injury. Unfortunately, his tendon injury flared up again after he came to us and he was only sound at the walk, so we retired him to a farm where he can get some well deserved R&R.

Dusty (Dusk ‘Til Dawn)

Dusty hannah retina slider_018 Dusty is a 23 year old, 16 hand, Appendix Quarter horse gelding. He came to us the fall of 2010. He’d been a western trail horse. He became a hunter and a fantastic lesson horse for both our walk-trot and advanced jumping riders. He retired in early 2017 and lives a happy, pasture-filled life.

Amber (Touch of Amber)

20150815-WWF Aug Barn Show-0147Amber is a 14.1 hand, 21 year old, registered Morgan mare. She had been a lesson horse since 2000, and was used for beginner through intermediate lessons. She is now retired after an injury compromised her soundness, but Ms. Hannah still sees her almost every day at Zandai Arabians.
