Instructors – Our Horses


We adopted Dude from a program in Erie, Pennsylvania. Dude is in his mid 20’s. He spent most of his time as a pleasure riding horse at a Christian Camp in the Alleghany Mountains. Dude is kind of a been there, done that horse. Don’t let his laid-back style fool you, the Dude abides on his own terms.


Oreo was our first mare  to join the herd.  She came from Klymers, New York. She is our largest horse in terms of stature and is also in her mid to late 20’s. Oreo often needs time to warm up to strangers and requests. Her boyfriends protect her very well and she loves their attention.

Thunder (Chocolate Thunder)

Thunder is  just starting his 20’s. He’s the alpha male of the herd. He came to us via Beach City, Ohio. Thunder would be enjoying a successful career on the show circuit but unfortunately, he has a bone chip in his front knee. He is the ideal trail riding horse and has many great years ahead of him. He’s always thinking and you would be surprised the many locks, latches, and doors he can open on his own.


Bentley is the youngest member of our herd.  She is a teenage Palomino.  Her personality is as unique as her color.  She is always eager to please but just like regular teenagers, earning her trust can be a challenge.


Meet our newest addition to the herd! Cheerio is our sassy, red haired mare. She’s a retired show jumper that doesn’t mind showing you what she’s thinking.  Cheerio is smooth, athletic, and smart.

Sinpae (Little Fox)

To our sorrow, Sinpae passed away late last year. We serve his memory with our mission.

He was a part of our original group of three rescued and brought to our farm. His Uncle Buff (Buffalo Hunter) and father Buck (Buckaroo) were the others. Sinpae now joins Buff and Buck; they were my original teachers and they will forever be remembered.
