Zipped Fleet

Dexter is a 16 year old, 16 hand, American Paint horse gelding. He was donated to us March 2005 by the Howe family. He’s a wonderfully quiet horse with lots of talent. He’s very steady and has become a nice show horse that many children and adults love.

After completing the intensive “can you be a lesson horse” protocol, she joined the beginner lesson program and now loves beginners and jumping riders alike.

Penny

Penny For A Thought

She is a 16.1 hand, 16 year old, Percheron/Paint cross that has returned to active lesson use after a 3 year sabbatical in TN with some friends.  We used her as a show mare before she moved to TN, and she has come back into work nicely.  Her nickname is “Sopha” as she’s so comfortable to ride.

He has been to 4-H state numerous times, and holds many championships at the 3’6 level. He is now retired to crossrails and 2 foot. We love having this spunky gelding at our farm.

 

Prescott

Prescott is a lovely 12 year old gelding that was donated to us by the Salter family after his owner went off to college. He did not want to be a children’s hunter, but is talented on the flat and over fences and is a very willing horse with our advanced lesson girls in the irons. He is a beautiful horse, and as lovely to work with as he is to look at.

Titan, appropriately named as he stands at over 18 h, is a new addition to our farm and is the second horse donated to the lesson program by the Howe family. He originally belonged to a former student who purchased him as a 4′ horse, but couldn’t handle the pressure at such a young age. Now, at 11, he is on the road to being much more confident and is a very fun ride for our advanced riders. We are so happy to have this fun and energetic gelding at our farm and excited to watch him come into himself.
