Meet Skye - Skye is a wild Mustang born in April of 2005 that came here all the way from Nevada! She is a bay with no white markings at all. Skye was born in the west where she and her mom along with 40 of their herd-mates were all captured and rescued by an organization in South Georgia. Their herd was on a piece of land that did not have enough resources to support so many horses, and many of them were beginning to starve. I adopted Skye and her mother when Skye was only 6 months old! I wanted a mustang from the west and I wanted to name her Skye, so it was meant to be that she was already named that! Skye began her training as soon as she arrived at the farm and is now quite an accomplished lesson mount. She is a great challenge for my experienced riders with her excitable personality and high energy. She loves to jump, run, go on trail rides, and show. Despite her wild heritage, Skye is very well behaved and curious about all new comers. She would love to meet you!
Shadow - R.I.P. (October 30, 2007)
Meet Shadow - Miss Shadow was a black Shetland pony cross born way back in 1986. We were the same age! She was very short at only 11 hands high and was the perfect size and temperament for my little ones to ride. She was the very first lesson pony I ever had! I owe a lot to the hard work of Miss Shadow, who sadly passed away from Cushing’s disease on Halloween. Cushing’s disease is irreversible but completely preventable in most cases. I spent a lot of time wishing I had been able to know and care for her when she was younger because I believe it was her poor diet that led to the disease. I educate and urge all of my students and other horse enthusiasts alike to learn as much as they can about proper nutrition and equine care so they do not have to feel the heart ache of losing their best friend too soon. Miss Shadow loved her kids, loved to eat, and gave Shetlands a good name! We all miss her dearly and know we will never find a pony as awesome as her!
Meet Jessie - Jessie was born in October of 2000. She is a grade Quarter pony mare. Grade just means she isn’t registered with a breed association. Jessie is sweet, gentle, and slow. We lovingly call her the “lazy” pony because she would rather stand around napping all day than work. Jessie came from a bad situation where she was beat up by something or someone. Her hips were extremely crooked, she would drag her back left leg, and she had lashes all over her rump. She was nervous around other horses and did not like to be the leader when ridden. Her confidence was gone. Today you can hardly tell anything ever happened to her, and with consistent chiropractic care, her hips are evening out just fine! Standing at a thick 13.3hh, this pretty girl is just big enough for almost everyone to ride! She now loves to run, jump, race and show. Come see her today!
Meet Jack - Old Man Jack is a huge black and white horse of unknown breed. Because of his rather small, curved ears, we think he may be an Indian Marwari horse, and we think that is pretty cool! He is an older fellow who was probably born somewhere around 1986. He is missing some teeth and has a hard time keeping his weight up like older horses do, but that does not stop him from enjoying his work! Jack came to us completely crippled. His previous owners did their very best to keep him sound by putting expensive pads and shoes on his feet. All this did was mask the problems while adding additional strain to his joints. With the help of our barefoot trimmer, Jack made an awesome comeback and is now sound enough to run, jump small jumps, barrel race, show and trail ride! He is a much happier, healthier horse now who loves people, riding and treats. Come give this big guy some love today!
Meet James - James Dean is an older AQHA registered barrel racing horse who was given to me by my gracious barn owners Karen and Stanley Hood. He was born in Oklahoma and professionally trained out in South Carolina. James won many titles including State and often competed on a national level! This amazing horse has been in retirement for a while, but I am hoping to bring him back to the glory of winning barrel races! He stands at a giant 16 hands and was born in 1994. He is a pretty bay color and has an unusual white strip down his nose. James is highly allergic to carrots, but that doesn’t stop him from enjoying all sorts of other treats! Come by and see this big fellow soon!
Meet Wicked - Wickedly Fancy is a small grade welsh pony mare with stunning coloration. She is a tri colored bay with a black and white tail. She is quite unique indeed! Wicked is owned by one of my students and boards at my facility. She is very sweet and patient, but still young and learning. Wicked was born in October of 2006, and she is a very talented jumper. She shows, and loves to trot the trails around the farm. She is a great pony for my little riders and would love to meet you!
Thank you for meeting our horses! Keep checking back to find out if any new residences decide to move in! All of our horses are well trained around humans and do not kick or bite. They would all love to meet you out at the barn sometime soon!
