Lesson Horses

linda and billy

Billy – Casey’s Irish Splendor

Billy is a registered pony sized Morgan who is invaluable to our program. He teaches Special Olympians to canter, takes walk-trot and walk trot canter riders to shows and wins them ribbons. We can always count on Billy to help out whenever he is needed.


Mariah — Prindle’s Nite Life

We acquired Mariah, a registered Morgan, with the help of the Saddlebred Rescue of New Jersey. It has taken her a couple of years to settle in, but she is now an invaluable part of our Special Olympic program. She willing teachers her riders to ride independently at the walk and jog or trot. She goes with them to state competitions and wins them gold medals both in equitation and trail.


Floyd – Fortissimo

Floyd, a registered Morgan, is one of World Champion lesson horses. He has competed on a national level both western and hunt seat and has been very successful. He is now shown by our lesson students who are contemplating owning their own show horses at some point. Those who have shown him can tell you that victory passes can be very exciting.


KC — Kane Creek Kryptonite

K.C., a registered Morgan, is another of our World Champions. He is shown western most of the time. K.C. is as dependable as the day is long and will take five year olds into walk jog classes and win them blue ribbons. He will also take our junior exhibitors and adults to All-Morgan shows and win them championships. We are very lucky to be able to offer him as a mount to some of those who hope to own a Morgan some day. He has made Morgan lovers of our Japanese and Dutch clients as well as many Americans.

Finny — DTA Friendships Finnegan

Finny, a registered Morgan, came to us from the same lesson program as Tex. He is ridden primarily western by our adult intermediate and advance riders. They especially like taking him to shows.

Vigilmar Thomas

Thomas — Vigilmar Thomas

Thomas, a registered Morgan, is on loan to us until he is sold. He is ridden English and western by intermediate and advanced riders. He is one of our best teachers because he insists that his riders learn to engage their seat bones and ride with soft hands and bodies.


Slammer — Gradell’s Gran Slam

Slammer, a registered Morgan, is on loan to us from a family who showed him when the girls were in school. Slammer is an invaluable beginner mount both to our Special Olympians and our regular riding students. His patience, cooperation and beauty are a testament to just how great Morgan horses can be in any lesson program.


Slo Mo — RGM Chevalier

Mo is the third of our world champions. Primarily he is ridden and shown saddle seat. Mo loves to show off and always gives his rider the great feeling of riding saddle seat

Tex — Texas Tea Freedom

Tex, a registered paint, came to us from another lesson program. He is ridden English and western for advanced beginner to experienced riders. He also helps out in our Special Olympics program. We have taken him several local shows and hope to do more with him this summer.

Baby Doll – Elegant Baby Doll

Baby Doll is a registered Quarter Horse. She came to us from a former student. She gives beginner and intermediate lessons and helps our lesson students as they begin to show.

Salem – ROF Anna Livia

Salem is Maggie’s mare and she was born, raised and trained here. She is ridden primarily hunt seat and has taken riders to any ribbons. Several years ago, Maggie and Jillian Zick used her at New England Morgan Horse Show to compete in the Pro-Am Equitation class. Salem willing did everything that was asked and the ladies came out Reserve Champions.


Trucker – Keep on Truckin

Trucker is on loan from some friends. He is an older Morgan who willingly helps advance beginners and intermediate saddle seat riders. He is especially forgiving in teaching them to canter.

Trace – Springtown Jarious

Trace is our golden boy, our Palomino Morgan. He came to us from some friends who said he needed a job. Trace has worked his way into the hearts of many. He willingly teaches advanced beginners either English or Western. His favorite thing is to be groomed and he will stand as long as someone is willing to groom him.

Otis — FSF Ivan Z Great

Otis joined our lesson string this August. He is an absolutely delightful gelding whose slow and patient nature has won the hearts of both littles and adults. He will jog all day long and has the smoothest lope which even the tiniest rider can learn to ride. His endless patience allows the littles to give him a bath by themselves. We cannot say enough good things about this horse.

Boris — Kosta Boda

Boris joined our lesson string last year. He is a multi-talented gelding who can be ridden saddle seat, hunt seat or western. He is for intermediate and advanced riders as he always has a “bag of tricks” which he can pull on the unsuspecting rider. Boris has competed all the way to Grand National.


Zee — Seasons’ Sizzlin Fantasy

Zee came to us this summer from Leduc, Canada. She is well broke and we hope that she will make a good local show horse next year. Presently we ride her hunt seat, but we are transitioning her to do western as well.

Rio – Tracemark Tapestry

Rio joined our lesson program this year. She is a multi-titled Morgan show horse who is helping her riders learn to be patient and clear in giving a horse signals. Rio has been a very positive asset to our lesson string.
