Meet Our horses

Hudson is a 16 year old Thoroughbred horse gelding. He stands at 16.1 hands with a very sweet and bright personality. He is used for our advance riders due to his physical abilities to walk, trot, canter and jump. He is the newest addition to our family but definitely a great addition to our humble home. 
Xerox is a 22 year old grey Percheron gelding with a big girth. Despite his size he is a gentle giant. Xerox provides beginner lessons to any kind of therapy that was needed of him. His movement is a great tool for us to help strengthen muscles in the human body. Xerox is the proud owner of the title “Best Therapeutic Horse” for the years 2002 and 2003,awarded by the Handicapped Rider’s Event (HRE) the handicapped division of Devon.
