Blast was born on the farm and has a big personality. We use him for intermediate students as he has more go than whoa and really enjoys jumping.

Domino has only been a part of the team since fall 2018. We use him for intermediate lessons. He likes trail rides the best.

"SKAMP" PASSING SHOWERS

2005 QH/MorganPercheron Mare

Skamp is one of our go-to lesson horses. She's great fun and safe for beginners, and she also likes to be used for for advanced students who want to let her stretch her legs. She's the daughter of Kampala and was born on the farm!

"HEART"      HEART SKIPPED A BEAT

1997 Arab/QH Gelding

Heart has been with the herd since he was 5yo.  He's FINALLY become a pretty steady school horse and we use him for intermediate lessons. I just love to look at him and find him to be so handsome.

GUY

2005 QH gelding

Guy is a 14h pony who rules the herd. He's agreeable to beginner lessons as well as intermediate riders. He loves to jump and moves right along on the trail. A fan favorite!

"BULLET"     SOCIALBULL

2003 Arabian Gelding

SocialBull was a flattrack race horse (https://www.arabianracing.org/), then become an endurance horse, and is now transitioning into low level eventing. We use him for intermediate and advanced lessons.

HONEY

2003 Mustang Mare

Honey is another one of our safe go-to lesson mares. She works hard in putting a good foundation on new riders.... she makes them work for it though! Honey made her debut in 2019 as a race pony in the Small Pony Races at the Genesee Valley Hunt Cup.

"THUNDER"        THUNDER AIN'T NO WIMP

2002 AQHA gelding

Thunder and I have a long history! He hasn't always lived with me, however, time has shown that it's his preference. He's done English and Western Riding, Dressage, Fox Hunting, A Stockhorse Race, Obstacle Challenges, and Trail Riding. He's a good horse to have around!

"SISTER"    MY FRIEND CHERYL

2001 OTTB mare

Sister arrived in May 2019. She's an experienced trail horse with some dressage training that we are hoping to tap into for some lessons and shows!

THE JOLLY ROGER

Jolly is our driving horse! He's a fun riding horse too and has done English and Western riding, Hunter Paces, a Heavy Horse Race at Genesee Valley Hunt Cup. He's a beginner friendly fella who has a big personality!

"CHICKY"   NEW HOPES BUENO CHICKLET

2014 Half AQHA mare

Chicklet is a lovely little mare who we use in beginner and intermediate lessons. She has a few devoted fans in the lesson program and is very capable of many things, if only they were her idea...

CINDER

2010 Mini (or Shetland pony?) gelding

Arriving Christmas 2019, Cinder has the least amount of history on the farm, however, he fits right in with a bold personality, healthy appetite, and offers lovable companionship to those doing chores and his mini friend, SpicySassySpazie who is visiting. Stay tuned as we figure out what Cinder can do!

 

HERD MEMBERS IN OUR HEARTS

Horses we have loved and cared for who have moved on to greener pastures, or to new homes.

EARLY SATURDAY

1976-2008 Tennessee Walking Horse Gelding

Early Saturday was our first horse. Mom received him as a teenager when we moved to Tioga County in the early 90s. He was gentle, hard to keep in the pasture, and beautiful!

INDIA

1987-2009 Warmblood Mare

We agreed to take India when she was in her final years. She was so safe and beautiful. She was only in our herd that we tried to make my father's riding horse... didn't work.
She was a high level dressage mare in her past and was a therapeutic riding horse for a number of years before coming to live with us and be a trail mare.

SECOND STAR

1987 grade pony mare

Star was a grade pony mare and I got her in 1994 for Christmas. She was sold (sadly outgrown) in 1999 and when I tried to track her down in the years to follow, I was unsuccessful.
What she did: Star was a trail boss and a pony racer. She was a show pony and a jumper as well as a member of our PonyClub's national games team the "Shooting Stars"
What she taught us: Oh where to start... so many things. One of the most unique things she brought to me as an opportunity to learn about Equine Massage Therapy.

"RUDY"     VERY TRULY

1991-2016 OTTB gelding

Rudy was Kerry's best friend. He taught me so many things about riding and good horsemanship. Heart and I still miss him very much.

LUNA RIO

1998 Welsh?/QH? pony mare- SOLD

For a brief period in time I bought and sold a few ponies. As I became more aware of how quickly animals could end up in bad places, I soon realized that I didn't have the stomach for that.
