We have a great group of horses to meet everyone's needs. Our horses have to be Jack of all Trades and must be able to handle more than one job.
Little Big Man (2007)
Lucky is a brown and white pinto pony (skewball) who stands approximately 12.3 hands tall. Lucky came to us about 1 year ago with a huge mass on his penis. A mass which was going to cost him his life. This 10 year old pony who rides and drives was finding himself on the euthanasia list. Owners were not in a position to afford his surgery. They called the SPCA for help and OSPCA called us. I took in 3 stallions, one miniature gelding and Lucky on that day. I was fortunate to have a vet will to offer her services to geld the studs so that I might find them a new home. She generously covered all their expenses in gelding and shots. Found a home quickly for miniature and then there is Lucky. I have a student who has been with me since the begining of time who has recently graduated from vet school. She volunteered to try the surgery on lucky. She was his last chance.
This is Lucky with Matthew Heinzle at the Upper Scotch show series winning the championship.
FGS Vicotry Flight (2000)
16.2 hand homebred TB gelding. He school wtc and is kind and generous over fences. He has done all our hunter trial field jumps with easy. He has been a great field hunter. Can be master's horse, whip or even huntsman horse. He's a jack of all trades. Prefer on property lease
Elphin Xena (1997)
This wonderful large pony takes care of all my little ones and no so little ones. She's a Connemara cross and has been an amazing additon to the family. She even has become a fantastic field hunter.
Pippi Short Stockings
This 10 year old rescue has just joined us. She stands approximately 12 hands is snow white and got a little go. She was generously donated to our farm from Dream Catcher Farm in Kingston
aka "Tinker Bell"
7yr old 15.2 hand TB mare. She loves to work and is willing to do anything for everyone. We are happy to have her join our school.
Has been leased for the 2017 show season by Amanda Ashley Koggel
Valley Breeze (2007)
This 6 year old wonderful animal is a full TB from the track. He stands 16 hands chestnut gelding. He is an awesome animal with a disposition second to none. He has been hunting for us since he got here. He is quiet for those who need him to be and a ball of energy and bravery for those who don't. He has been my "Master" horse, my "Field horse", my "rental horse" and my "whip" horse. He has been introduced over fences and goes willingly. He will start his show career in eventing in 2015. He has done dressage at shows and always places top 5. He has a disposition and deperament which is unequaled.
Dargo is by far one of my favorites.
Ghost on Board (2007)
Spook is 9 year old large pony. Has evented at pre-training. Available on show by show lease or on property. He stands 14.1 and is safe as a house.
He stands 16.2 hands tall. He has a long history. We got him when his owner retired from riding at the age of 80. Gambit is an incredible field hunter and awesome all around horse. He events, dressages and even can do the hunter / jumpers. He takes care of all who ride him. He is an incredible addition to the farm.
BIG RED (2000)
This gentle giant is one of my favorites. He's by our TB stallion Torque Flight and out of Laura Ashley (TB/Westfallie/Percheron). This boy has been used as a whips horse, field horse and he's a kind and willing to work. We used him more often for men only because he stands 17.2 hands tall and most women find that a wee tad tall.
Just Chloe (1985)
This Trakhener mare stands 16.1 and was generously donated to the farm 2 years ago from our Hunt Master. He has a young horse and decided to let us use Chloe. This lady loves the school. I can trust her with anyone and everyone. If you want to learn how to do a course, Chloe is the one. Yet she still remains one of our most trusted field hunters also.

Timber Cruiser (1995)
This Tri has been with us since he was 2 and a stallion. We gelded him and he has never ever let me down. He is one of our best. Cruiser will carry all my beginners around without making a mistake and then when you can ride a little he gives you a little bit of a tough time making sure to keep you on your toes. He can jump the moon and he is the trusted friend to all who want to hunt for the first time or the 200 time. He has been to Toronto and Virginia so many times he probably could drive the truck. Cruiser is also on of the horse we choose for those people with special needs.
Is a cute 12'3 hand hackney cross pony. This young lady take great care of all my little ones. She has started all the kids, she still shows in the dressage shows and events and when hunting season comes around, you'll find Nutmeg in the crowd of field hunters.
Nutty has lost all her teeth and the use of one eye. She has been an asset to this family and she is getting a well deserved retirement.
I had a customer who came to me asking for a horse. More than willing to pay. This lady had retired many of my parents horses and we should all be lucky enough to get a retirement home like this. Graffiti is only 10 sound and sane, but he is one of those horses whose conformation, crooked head and neck and such that make it hard to sell and I refuse to let him go to anyone. So when this lady asked me for a horse, I loaded Graffiti on the trailer and said enjoy!!! He deserves to be treated like a king. He will now be teaching her young daughter the ropes. So he's retired from our farm, not retired from the show ring.! It is my way of thanking these animals for all they do for me!!!
This wonderful grey Trakheiner / TB cross. He's a wonderful example of what not to buy. He's crooked and malformed, has a semi paralized face because he was kicked as a baby. This wonderful animal is amazing. He will jump anything put in front of him. This year has been a huge year for Graffiti - he was Whip horse extraordinaire
