Mufasa

Mufasa is a beginner level horse.  He is sometimes affectionately called, “Fatso” by the kids who come to the farm because he is always eating and is very reluctant to exercise.  Yet, once he does pick up his pace, he has one of the smoothest cantors of all the horses on our farm.

Angel is a beginner/intermediate level horse.  She is a favorite for our riding camps, and there are many children who specifically request to have her for their lessons.  Angel is very picky about her choice of friends, and she likes her space.  So, we usually put her at the front or the back of our trail rides with other horses whom she likes.

Russo (Kuro Kishi)

8 Years Old | Black – Gypsy Vanner

Russo is the youngest horse on our farm.  His nickname is “Kuro Kishi” which means “Black Knight” in Japanese.  We have only been riding him for a few months, and he has become quite responsive to our commands.  He is now considered an intermediate horse, but he has to get more used to everything before we let customers regularly ride him.  He loves attention from people and will follow whomever comes to visit him all over his pasture.  If you walk, he will follow you at a walk, and if you run he will also pick up his pace to match yours!

Tucker
Tucker

19 Years Old | Bay – Polish Arabian

Tucker is a beginner level horse for trail rides, but at an intermediate level horse for lessons.  He likes a loose reign.  If you are gentle with him, he will be gentle and docile towards you.  If you pull on him a lot, he will pull back.  He seems to think of it like a game of “Tug O War”!  Since he does this, some people say that his name should be “tugger” instead of Tucker.
Tshakhana
Tshakhana

31 Years Old | Bay – Polish Arabian

Tshakhana (shack-on-a) is the one horse on our farm whose name almost no-one can spell correctly.  As a result of this, many people look for her bridal under the letter “S” instead of “T”.  It is believed that her name has a Russian background, and hence the confusion.  She is one of our most highly requested horses for lessons as she is very responsive but does not move too quickly.
