Meet Our Horses
Tara is a 1994 Warmblood mare who is the heart of our lesson program. She had a successful career in hunter over fences and hunter under saddle before retiring to the lesson program where she has taught many young riders the ropes. Tara retired from the lesson program in 2018 and now enjoys ruling her domain from the field and watching the other horses do all the work!
Sadly, we lost Tara in 2020 at the age of 26. She will forever be a part of our hearts and our farms legacy.
A Quinarius Rugged "Dude"
Dude is a 2004 Registered Quarter Horse Gelding who has had a successful show career in Hunters but also enjoyed Hunter paces, and dressage. Currently, Dude is being shown by Shanna's daughter Savannah and is enjoying Pony Club.
Foothills River Queen
Queen was added to our program in 2018, She is a 28 Year old Connemara.
She is skilled in dressage and over fences and enjoys teaching beginners through advanced riders. Queen is also used for Pony Club and stills enjoys the thrill of cross country!
Summer Storm "Boomer"
Boomer is a 2009 Quarter Horse Cross that we rescued in April of 2016. Boomer was extremely underweight with a dirty, matted coat that was so full of rain rot his hair came out in clumps. Boomer began his training after he gained weight and health in Summer 2016. He was trained by Shanna Rose and has earned many ribbons for our kids over the years! Boomer has become an excellent addition to our program with his calm unflappable nature, he works with our beginner students as well as seasoned riders and is a true Cinderella story.
Miss Classy Cutie
Anna is a 1996 AQHA mare who joined our barn family in 2015. Anna is a seasoned kid's pony with tons of experience. She is a barn favorite, and is a great teacher for our beginner students. Anna enjoys going on community event trips and local schools. Anna retired from the lesson program in 2017 and now is owned by one of our lesson students but can still be visited at our farm hanging out with Queen.
