“Flash” is cautiously back up for adoption.  He has trust issues but he is FANCY and SMART. If you’re experienced and patient with horses, you might want to take a look. He could do a number of things in and out of the ring. Read more…

Ned was recently returned to us, through no fault of his own, and he’s quickly becoming a barn favorite to ride. He’s definitely got the bounce for dressage but could do other things as well. He’s just a nice animal with little to complain about. Read more…

Ringo was in an adoptive home for several years and when the rider went off to college, Ringo was returned to us. He is a nice mover with plenty of miles and experience under his belt. However, he is for the advanced rider only. Read more…

Glory is all that; sound, sane and fun to ride. But (there’s always a but) he’s not a gentleman around mares and should really live in a frat house to be useful. Read more…

This amazing little horse was coming along so well but we just can’t keep him sound for any kind of miles under saddle and we’ve tried. He’s got the best manners and personality and would be great with kids, so if you need a babysitter or companion horse, look no further. Read more…

Tuck has been there and done that, all while having a great attitude. He’s had a lot of miles and professional training, but is very sensitive and may not be suitable for trails except for a very experienced and confident rider. He is sound for flatwork and trails. Read more…

Teddy is a true teddy bear. He is sweet, and kind, and forgiving and totally laid back. He hacks all over the farm but his stifles won’t allow for much more. He would be a good trail horse and maybe more with maintenance. Read more…
