Meet Our Stars!


Pepper is a registered Quarter Horse mare and is a seasoned school horse. She is patient, comfortable and has taught many children and adults how to ride.

Bella the horse


Bella is an Andalusian cross mare who was purchased two years ago as a school horse.  She is Pepper’s best younger girlfriend, and has a wonderful personality!

Snickers the horse, a side view


Snickers is a 16 hand Quarter Horse gelding.  He helps Pepper (who fell in love with him almost from the start) with the lower level riders.


Sunny is a half-Arabian, half Quarter Horse mare.  She is smart, eager to learn, and is working out fantastically in our lesson program!
