Rowdie is an 18 year old, 15.1h, quarter horse. Rowdie was bred by my family, we have owned him his whole life and I was even there the day he was born. He was started as a western horse, he is a fabulous talented trail horse and pack horse. He also was my very first English horse. Rowdie went to many years of 4-h horse camp with me and other riders. He is a very calm sweet show horse as well. I learned a lot on him! He is a very cute horse with a funny personality, he definitely has a one-of-a-kind mind! He is a cute boy that has done about everything! He has done hunter/jumper, eventing, dressage, western, sidesaddle, polo, bareback, reining, trails, and even chased a couple of cows off of him! We have a joke around here, "when in doubt, try it on Rowdie first." :-) He is a total doll that just LOVES kids. He gets a little offended when we use one of the other horses in a lesson!
Shadow is a handsome 14 year old black QH. We LOVE this boy and are SO grateful to our friend Ann for letting us use this handsome boy here and there over the past couple years! We fell in love with this sweet boy, and he will be staying here with us for a long, long time! We are planning on him being a permanent addition here! We are so excited that we could add another steady, sweet, solid QH to our program! Shadow was used for trail rides and "Grandkids" with Ann, but he also has roping and reining training! We are hoping we can get him started in english and jumping this summer! He already LOVES the kids!
Mini Lesson Horses!!!
Bonnie is a 5 year old miniature horse that is just completely a princess! She is gorgeous and she KNOWS it! She is a total sweetheart that loves cookies, loves attention (especially from kids!) and loves EVERYONE! She has been a very sweet girl with the kids. She never had any problem with the saddle and has taken to riding very quickly. She is one smart whip. We are working on her driving training and she is progressing so quickly. We even hooked her to a cart last spring. She just put her head down and gave me a look like "I got this, lets go!" She has a lot of driving blood in her and she LOVES to work! She has been so incredibly easy to train with everything we have done with her. She was my very first mare too and has shown me that I can love the girls too! We have high hopes for this very, very sweet little cutie! We can't WAIT to get her into the show ring. She is flashy and LOVES to strut her stuff! We are hoping to get her into the ring soon, in either halter, jumping or driving. She is also going to be a great pony for my students to get their feet wet showing with!
Clyde is a spunky little 4 year old miniature horse. He is also Bonnie's full brother! He is a total sweetheart and loves getting spoiled! He has done a great job with the students and has picked up riding very easily. He is starting to get to join the lesson program along side his sister! He will be trained to pull a cart as well!We are hoping to get him started driving this year as well! In a couple years our goal is to drive bonnie and clyde together as a team! We are very excited about this adorable little boy! He has been a real sweet addition to our program. He is very sweet and gentle with the kids. He is a wonderful pony for the kids to get used to horses and learn to lead, groom, all those fun skills!
Debut: Debut is one of our newest additions! We are in love with this gorgeous boy! Debut has a great start in life and had a very successful showing career and we are thrilled with this new addition to our lesson program! He is going to be a wonderful pony for our young kids to get a great start on! We are also going to be training Debut to drive. With all his experience, he will be a great pony for our students to get their feet wet in showing as well! We love this sweet, adorable boy! He is over the top friendly, loves attention and is a total sweetheart!
Dakota Dakota is a spunky, feisty little buckskin gelding! I have been in love with this little guy sense I met him the first time I met Jennifer at JD Diamond Acres. I ended up coming home with Bonnie and Clyde that time, but have always loved Mr. Dakota! I was finally able to bring this little guy home and we are thrilled! He is a fun little guy and LOVES attention! He is a bit of a cookie hog, and boss of the field (he beats Geordi up!) We can't be more excited about getting to have this boy here! We are going to be training him to drive this summer and we think he is going to a beautiful, flashy driving horse! He also LOVES kids and is great for teaching the little ones how sweet horses are! He has some good experience in the show ring and we would be willing to let our students show him as well!
Riding Horses: Our personal riding horses
Tecozy, or Cozy for short, is a big tall TB with a little Irish hunter in her. She is a sweetheart and we are working on getting her going nice and quietly! She has a lot of jumper blood in her and beautiful movements! She is going to be my dressage girl and hopefully a beautiful hunter! She loves chasing those boys around the pasture, and they are all just in love with her! She is definitely a spoiled princess and Queen of pasture! She is a sweetheart and I can't wait to get her going well! She has really come a long way sense we got her! I'm thrilled with her progress. We've been working out some issues caused from her past, and she is coming around beautifully. She has taught me so much! I love working with this pretty girl!

Our Other Wonderful Critters that we love!
These 6 cuties are some of our favorite little critters! They are Nigerian Dwarf Goats! They were bred and raised by my good friend Brianna down in Utah. We just ADORE these three little goof balls! They love to run, jump, play and follow you around. Their favorite activity is to follow all our cute students around and eat LOTS of treats! Itchy, Blitz, and Hammy are from her first batch, and Caramel, Oreo, and Cookie are from her 2nd batch! We love them!
