Personality:  Red is a retired police horse, and it shows in her daily life!  She isn't scared of anything and loves to go.  She has navicular syndrome  but after her first few months of rehab here, she began actively riding again and loves it.  Too much time off makes her sore, so we do our best to keep her in moderate work all of the time.  Behind her strong exterior is a sweet and loving mare.  She is very emotionally in tune with those around her.

Best Female Friend: Sadye

Favorite Part of Riding: Jumping and Fox Hunting, Barrels, Pole Bending
Job: Teaching beginning to advanced riders, fox hunting, and showing

Personality:  Cherokee is sweet and gentle, but has high expectations for his care.  He's super-sensitive to any and all things "wrong," ranging  from horsefly bites to his mane hitting his ears.  He's a bit pesky in the herd because his mom is around to protect him.  He will negotiate with people, but purely to test a person's relationship skills with horses.  Once you're in the saddle, he works to your riding level, but is also classified as a "go" horse.  He is known for his sliding stops to catch falling riders on his neck.

Personality:  Ace is an extremely lovable guy.  He's social with everyone, active in the pasture, and very willing.  He's an "efficiency expert;" does the minimum necessary to get the job done.  It makes him excellent for beginners, young children, and special needs riders. He likes to engage in play in the pasture, but often ends up with bumps, scratches, and bruises because he's at the bottom of the herd hierarchy.  It doesn't stop him from playing games with the other boys!
