      Riding School Horses:

We take great pride in our lesson horses. They are well trained, well cared for members of the family. They are sound, healthy and excellent teachers.  We currently have six horses available for lessons. Their names and descriptions are below. We ask that our horses are respected at all times. They should be groomed before riding and never left with a saddle mark. A proper horseman never rides a muddy horse or leaves him sweaty and uncared for. 

Dobbie: 13.3 Grey POA gelding. He is used for children's and small adults usually on lunge-line for beginners. Teaches student how to keep a horse straight and to not allow them to counter-bend. 

Magyar Daisy: 14.3 Bay hungarian/dutch warmblood cross 10 years old. Daisy is a lovely mare. She has 3 smooth gaits and teaches riders to ride light, with soft hands. 

Magyar Chilly-Belle 15.2 Hungarian mare. Chilly has been used extensively in therapeutic riding and teaching mentally challenged students. She is patient, kind and safe. She teaches student to trust and be confident. She also has three smooth gaits and will teach riders how to ride soft. 

Henry: 16.2 bay thoroughbred gelding. Henry is the ideal horse as he has extensive dressage training, consistent gaits, lovely over fences, and bold cross country. He teaches rhythm, balance,and consistency. He is a prelim event horse and the anchor of the HPS team.  

Riven: 17.1 Appendix gelding he has giant gaits and can easily unseat a weak rider. As such he is best at teaching riders to stay tall and lengthen reins. He has three big but steady gaits and a patient disposition.
