Yearling
Celeste is a 22-year-old Hanoverian mare that one of my instructors bought about a year and a half ago. She hadn't been ridden in over 10 years and needed retraining. She is about 15.3 or 16hh and such a sweetie. While she can sometimes be a bit of a handful on the ground, she has improved a lot. Even though she is 22 years old, she still has lots of energy! Once she had a little bucking fit when I was on her, but she has gotten over that :). She loves to learn and has huge, beautiful, floating gaits.





Raspberry is a very old (not sure how old) Pony of the Americas. Everyone at the barn learns to ride on him. He's a silly little boy with tons of character. He loves apples and when I rode him I would always bring him a couple slices. His mane is very long and very fluffy- it is usually a couple inches thick and at least a foot and a half long!

(^^^from 6 years ago^^^)

(^^^Raspberry and Cashalle^^^)

I have been riding Ruby for about 2 years now. She is a 15.3hh Quarter Horse mare. She can be a little moody sometimes, but has been trained in 2nd Level movements in dressage and is a great schoolteacher.


Thumper is my very favorite horse. He is an 11-year-old (I believe) Thoroughbred/Mini cross and is about 15.3hh. When he was younger his ear was bitten off by another horse so one ear is flat on the tip. Thumper is such a friendly horse- just last Monday I rode a different horse and was untacking him, and Thumper would just stick his nose over his stall and look around and whinny until I came over to say hi. He loves to go fast and was trained and competed in jumping until he was donated to Hoofers. He can be gentle though. One of the instructors teaches a man with a mental illness and Thumper is perfect for him. When he gets a little fast, Michael will turn him into a corner and then when he's ready they'll just continue on. Thumper's registered name is Footloose. He used to have a red headband with devil ears on it in his grooming bucket, and my friend and I would take it and stick it on his head. He couldn't have cared less! He is such a troublemaker, too! I took off my helmet next to his stall one day and he was very interested. I let him sniff it and all of a sudden he grabbed it with his teeth and shook it around in the air! Thumper is my senior rider horse- I love him so much.

Yes, she is. She still gets ridden, though not as often as before. I always feel guilty when I saddle her up for a ride. Lol

Here she is that same day. She just shed out the rest of her wooly coat a few weeks ago.

Unfortunately he is so sweet he would probably follow you home happily. He's like a little puppy.

Here's my 15.3hh, 10 year old TB, Victor. I use him for hunt seat, trails, and jumping.



And my 17hh American Cream, Norman. :) We trail ride and just putz around on him, mostly. I'm waiting another year to start jumping with him, since he's only five. Plus he needs a lot more flat work first.

Sorry if I seem harsh. These horses look pretty ribby. How long has it been since they were wormed?
