Lesson Horses

Meet our experienced team of lesson horses, who love to help people learn how to ride safely. Ranging in sizes and profession, they are an important part of the stables.  Whether it’s a small child, beginning adult, or novice teenage rider taking a lesson, these horses can cover everything from bareback riding, to trail rides, to hunter/jumper and even 3-day-eventing!


Thomas is an 11 year old miniature horse that loves small children.  He is the perfect pony to introduce young riders to the sport because of his kind disposition.

Measuring 10 hands high you never feel too far from the ground.  His favorite treat is apple peppermint cookies.



Shady is a Thoroughbred mare. Shady has done Three Day Eventing for many years and still loves to jump! Shady is excellent with both children and adults. She also likes trail riding, with or without a friend. Her preferred snack is a peppermint, but she also likes carrots, cookies, or apples. Shady is also available for an in barn lease for somebody interested in having her pilot you around the 2’3″



“Sly” is a 2002 13.2hh grey welsh cross pony, who is an excellent teacher for everything from walk/trot to medium pony hunters, equitation and under saddles. He has had a wonderfully successful career showing in GSDHJA and in shows all the way to the A circuit, and continues to show locally with students. Sly isn’t picky about treats, and loves potato chips.


This is the perfect horse to pilot you around. He is a wonderful safe teacher for anybody with a special personality. An absolute barn favorite with numerous championships in the jumpers and equitation.
