This unique cross made the most beautifully put together and colored mare we call Cleo! She's a black roan with just enough white and incredible conformation. She's very well-muscled and has great bone structure and solid black hooves. Cleo walks, trots, and canters with ease. She can collect and extend all of her gaits. She's got a fantastic stop as well. Cleo works off seat and leg cues. She knows lateral movements such as side passing, pivoting, and leg yielding and she’s even got flying changes. Cleo is fantastic in the arena, as she’s very balanced. She has been started over fences and jumps in great form while holding a steady pace. She has also been trail-ridden all over. Woods, water, open fields, big groups, out alone, down the busy road, or around wildlife she has no cares. Cleo has also been working cows, rounding up, and sorting, and has even participated in a few breakaway roping events. If you want to get into cows she’s totally game, if you want to enjoy trails she loves it, if you want to have a great hunter-jumper type she’s also a good candidate.

She is a pure bread section A welsh pony out of imported stock. She will mature at 12.2hh. Ember is 4 years old. She is a pretty chestnut with a white blaze. Ember is a joy to ride and currently working in our lesson program. The kiddos love riding her and is a favorite for many of our students. Ember has a nice quiet walk, a floaty flat kneed trot,  and the most delightful canter. She knows both her leads and has been very lightly started over fences. She rides a snaffle bit and is soft in the mouth and has great breaks! Ember has great ground manners and you can catch her anywhere in the field. We think Ember would make an excellent small hunter pony. In fact, many of her siblings have had very successful careers as hunters on the MHJA and USEF circuits. She would also make a great addition to any lesson program or family pony!

He will ride 100% off of your seat and leg cues so well that you don’t need a bridle. He will take care of any rider in any situation. We have had him out on the trails in groups of 40+ horses and he will lead or follow with the most nervous of riders, he is also great to ride out alone. He has delightful gaits this boy makes you feel like a professional every ride. He has had kids as young as 4 years old ride him independently. He is soft in the bit and responsive to all aids. Jimmy has all the natural horsemanship training you would ever expect and he soaks it all up like a sponge. He rides English, western, bareback, and even drives.

Here she is the kind of horse everyone dreams of owning her name is Tessa. She stands 15hh at 5 years old. She is sired by Rocky a gypsy vanner. Her mom is a paint mare. This horse is a stunning brown and white with an absolutely gorgeous thick mane and tail and beautiful feathering on all 4 legs. Not only is this girl as beautiful as a picture in a magazine she’s got the personality to match. Tessa will stand like a statue tied or not for as long as you want to groom and handle her. She is extremely careful as the little ones work around her legs and feet. She loves the attention and loves to be doted on. She leads, loads, clips, and baths all with no issues. She can live inside or out with no vices and gets along with the others. This girl really speaks volumes for herself as you watch her video. She will walk, trot, canter, jog, lope, and is so soft in your hand, and listens so well to your seat and leg ques. You do not even need tack to ride her around and I’m not just talking about a walk, I’m talking about walk, trot, canter, jumps, trails, parades, or even just a ride around an arena… she will do It all tack-less. Tessa has all the buttons one may want but is easy enough to teach the kiddos. She’s worked at a zoo showing off her tricks and you better believe she’s a crowd favorite. She’s seen all types of exotic animals and could not care less about them. She’s also one of the best trail horses I’ve sat on. She will navigate any terrine on a long rein with any level of rider. Trailblazing thick brush, wildlife, and water all no problem. She will take the lead or follow behind, even venture out alone, she will pony horses twice her size as well. This horse has the best mind on the planet we have yet to find anything to spook her and that includes our blow-up Dino costume. Dino can groom, tack, lead, as well as ride her and she couldn’t care less. She has carried the flag, been roped off of and used to work cattle. If this is not quite enough her liberty work will have you asking is this a pony or a dog!! She sits, lays and bows on command!! What fun the kids have had with her! She also has experience driving. I can keep going but I’ll stop here.

This guy will go anywhere with any rider onboard. He goes English, Western, and even bare back. He knows how to drive and loves it. Cinnamon has all the bells and whistles when it comes to his trick training. He will sit, lay down, and bow with a simple tap on his chest or ankle.
