Sara adopted Harley from Misfit Toys Rescue Division in the spring of 2019.
He has been DNA tested to confirm he is a Saddlebred and we know he worked for the Amish for a spell but that's all we know for sure.
We believe Harley to be around 24 years young! He certainly doesn't act his age and is great at getting into mischief.
He is a ham, sweet and loves people. He has all the buttons that lead us to believe he was a show horse in his younger days and probably a darn good one!
His name is Harley because he has a big motor and sounds like a Harley revving its engine at feeding time.
If you ask him to go he immediately moves forward with a purpose. If you ask him to stop, sit back because he has amazing brakes! He feels like riding a big show horse and he is as honest as the day is long.
Buzz is a sweet Quarter Horse Gelding. He was born in 1998 and has done just about everything at AQHA, Tennessee Ranch Horse, Southern Stock Horse shows plus more!
He has won Champion and Reserve titles in Rail Class, Trail, Obstacle, Reining, Cutting, Sorting, Halter, Barrels, and Pole Bending. He can be roped off of and is a confident Header and Heeler. He has jumped 4' and can do all of the above without a bridle!
He is a wonderful trail horse and is happy in the lead, middle, back or completely alone.
Buzz loves to be useful and will become sad and listless if he isn't working and helping out.
A few years back he took a bad kick to his hind end from another horse. His wonderful owner spent tons of time and money to help him recover. Due to scar tissue from the kick he has a lopsided gait now. Thousands of dollars in tests proved that he doesn't have any pain, he simply cannot move one leg as far forward as the other. For his physical and mental health multiple vets have stated that the best thing for him is to keep working. So he gives beginner lessons to kids and enjoys falling asleep while being groomed.
Zip is a 2001 model American Quarter Horse.
Evie took riding lessons on him and then leased him over the course of a couple years. Then On Christmas Eve 2017 he was given to her.
Zip has done many things in his life. He started off as a reining horse, he has been a trail horse, taught lessons and camps, worked cows, jumped and done dressage.
He is what we call a "good soldier" sweet, even tempered and up to do whatever you ask of him. Although he will make faces when you give him a bath! He is great for beginners to learn to steer and post on but he can give you some of that Quarter Horse get up and go if you want it.
Annabelle is around 9 years old and is a wonderful example of a miniature horse. She has a kind and patient temperament and is too smart for her own good. She has gorgeous confirmation and moves very well.
Our youngest riders can ride her and she is a pro at driving. In the future she will be used for driving lessons however right now she spends her time keeping Zip in line and being used for in-hand work.
She is a typical mini/pony in that she gets fat from just smelling treats so we ask that treats are approved before being fed to her so that we can watch her weight.
Truth is a 12 year old American Saddlebred. His show name is “The Truth About Love”.
He was rescued from a horse auction when he was only 4 years old. At the time he was rescued he had never been given a chance to learn. His rescuers worked with him for a few years, although he still wasn’t perfect he was a lot better than before.
After 5 years of owning Truth his rescuers decided they needed to find a new home for Truth, that’s when Kayla came along and decided to adopt him. Kayla has had Truth since 2017. She took him to her home farm and continued his training. After 2 long years of training Truth became a trustworthy teacher for ANY age or level rider.
Truths favorite hobbies are trail riding, eating grass, rolling in every mud puddle he can find, drinking gatorade, and eating treats.
Marvin is our newest lesson horse. Our vet guesses him to be around 12 years old. And he appears to be a sun-faded black quarter horse.
Marvin came through an auction a couple years ago and was purchased, fattened up and given to a great home. He is on loan for our lesson program and is quickly catching on to the program here.
He had a prior injury to his left eye and is blind in it. However, that does not stop him from being a sweet guy and bossing the herd around in the pasture.
He is super cute in western tack and we see a bright future for him as a Ranch horse and hunter.
