Aries

Aries is a 9 year old 15.1 hand Polish/ Spanish Arab. He was purchased as an endurance and mountain trail horse 6 years ago. He came with a very quirky personality and is one of the most intelligent horses at the ranch. He will open gates, cans, feed bins and anything else that is challenging even carabineer's! He has done well in mountain trail and is our resident go to for the beginner/ novice rider who needs a confidence builder. He is a pro at all of the obstacles and makes it look easy. He started jumping this last year with our junior riders and is doing well over 2.6 ft jumps. He also came in top 10 for the first time at and endurance ride. So, if you need a boost of confidence in your riding request Aries.

Thor

Thor is a 7 year old 16.3 hand 1700 lb. American Cream Draft. This breed only has 400 of them in the U.S. They were the only American bred draft horses that were developed for riding and driving.  They also have a high percentage of the champagne gene. This gene gives them their palomino coloring as well as their gorgeous amber eyes. Thor is very comfortable on the trail course and we use him for our taller students who want a big ride. He is also gaited and has a huge ground covering stride that makes him very unique. He does not think he is a draft and will keep up with our Arabs on trail rides. He also jumps and does dressage. Request him if you want a big ride.
