This girl has the sweetest baby doll face you will see! Jojo a horse that the whole family can enjoy! JoJo is a Tri colored paint draft cross mare. She is 10 years old and approximately 15.2hh. JoJo has past experience working on a farm doing ranch work, and driving. She’s been driven single and double and just about anyone can hook her. She’s currently teaching kids and beginner adults how to ride. JoJo is more whoa than go making her the perfect horse to teach those new, unbalanced, and timid riders. If you’re an experienced rider JoJo has lots of potential and talent to excel in whatever direction you want to take her. She’s started over fences, learning the barrel pattern, and learning those fancy buttons like sidepassing/pivoting/collecting. JoJo rides both English and western. She’s extremely comfortable and her breaks are great! A simple whoa is all that’s needed for her to come to a complete stop. JoJo enjoys trail riding and hacking out in the fields. Ride alone or in a group with JoJo. She is not the spooky type and she isn’t one to say no. She’s more than willing to give anything a try. JoJo would make an excellent addition to any lesson program or a 4h/equestrian team show horse.

He stands tied single or in cross ties, patiently for grooming/tacking and is a gentleman for the vet and farrier. Bennie rides both English and Western in any bit or even with just a halter and lead rope. He’s SUPER COMFORTABLE!!!!!!! Bennie is more whoa than go and his breaks are hard to beat. Bennie is also a wonderful trail horse! This boy has spent a lot of time out in the woods. Take him out alone or in a group and he doesn’t mind being out in the lead, in the middle of the group, or bringing up the rear. Bennie doesn’t mind if horses ride up behind him or tightly beside him. He is not the spooky type. Any trees, rocks, logs, tall grass, hills, wildlife, etc. don’t phase Bennie. Bennie has been ridden and driven down busy roads. He is traffic safe! The big semis, lines of cars, load sirens, and horns honking do not bother Bennie one bit. This boy is safe for anybody of any and all levels of riders to hop on. Bennie has had plenty of beginners on him including children and adults. He can take a joke and keeps his rider safe at all times. If he feels his rider losing their balance Bennie halts or goes back to walk. We have recently started him over fences and we are currently using Bennie in our beginner lessons, jump lessons, and beginner barrel lessons. He’s an all-around horse! We have yet to find something that Bennie can’t or won’t do! He’s game for anything we throw at him! Bennie would make a great addition to any family or lesson program! He would also do very well as a 4h or equestrian team horse.

It’s not every day you find a horse like Oak Hills Nell. She is a Friesian (75%) Percheron (25%) mare. Registered with the Friesian Sport Horse Registry. She is sired by none other than Dominator CS who’s by Wander and out of Jania who is sired by wander and out of a percheron mare. She is one of the most stunning horses you will set your eyes on both inside and out. Nell is not only put together as pretty as a picture out of a book but she has the personality to match. She is kind respectful and sensible. Nell stands a solid 17hh at 8 years old. She carries herself with amazing self carriage, balance, grace, and cadence in all of her gaits. Nell has a quiet drop the reins kind of walk, a stunning but yet smooth trot and a canter you can sit all day long. She takes both leads from the walk and stops on a dime. She has the conformation and movement to excel in any show ring. Nell moves off of seat and leg pressure with ease. Pull the bridle off or drop the reins and you can navigate her just about anywhere you want to go just off of your leg. She aims to please in any situation you put her in. Nell LOVES the trails. We have taken her out alone and in groups and there’s no brush to thick, no water to deep, or hill to steep for her! This girl absolutely loves soaking in the Scenery. With that being said yes she hauls great. He has seen much of Michigan and Ohios state and metro parks and has been ridden thru some Michigans most beautiful hunt country. Nell is also broke to drive and he dose so with such elegance and class. She looks nothing short of royal while hitched and would make a stellar carriage horse or pleasure driving type. One of her best characteristics is her aptitude towards liberty work. This girl loves it. You can lead her with out so much as a rope climb up on a block and with a simple snap she will steep right in line for you to hop on. She will lay down with a gentle tap of your foot while on her back or while you stand beside her. This feature comes in very handy if you’re out and about and need a fast way to hop on! She will nod her head yes and no and will even sit down. Her personality is unparalleled. Nell has more appealing attributes than I can type up but I encourage you to enjoy the video as she will show you more than I can ever tell you!

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.

Bubby loves people and there’s nothing this boy won’t do for a cookie! He comes right up to you in the field, leads easily for the kids, and ties where ever you tie him. He stands to be groomed, bathed, for the farrier and the vet. He will hop on and off any trailer and the best part is when you arrive at the show you can hop on and he will ride around as though he’s lived at that facility forever. He has zero spook. If you can steer him to the jump he will get you to the other side. On the same note if you can steer him to the corner he will gladly swap his lead for you. He’s a point-and-shoot kind of guy.

He will happily lay down in any soft spot. Sit down for lunch or if he gets a choice he prefers you let him join you on the couch or a recliner. He knows how to say yes, no and he can even count! Once you get to know Blue you won’t need a lead rope or halter to get him to walk, jog and lope around as he follows you on the ground. He knows his name and will come when called. Blue will build you up every ride, in fact everyone who’s every ridden him can’t help but to smile as he’s so much fun! Blue can be ridden both English and Western or completely tackless.
