"Yippee Ima Zippy" aka "Zippy" is a 1998 Registered APHA Gelding. HE stands approx. 15.2 Hands, and is an amazing horse. We have had him for over 7 years now, and cant imagine one day at the barn without him. He loves to be silly and play. Zippy has done everything from climbing the mountains, to being a top Show Horse. He has won many highpoints and first places. Zippy rides both English and Western, and does best with advance beginner riders. We have also used Zippy for birthday parties and Lead Liners.
"Sonny" is approx. 23 years old. He is a Grade Quarter Horse Gelding. He is as good as they get. Sonny will do anything for his rider. Sonny is a beautiful bucksin color and stands approx. 15.3 Hands tall. Sonny rides both English & Western, he has also done jumping, cross country, dressage, and gaming. Although he doesn't do all of that now because of his age, there isn't anything Sonny can't do. Sonny is great for any age, and level of rider. From complete beginner riders, to the most advanced rider. Sonny loves to go on trails rides, and will be on the trail all day long. Sonny does also show, but they tend to make him a little nervous, so he is for intermediate, to advance rider for showing.
"Buddy" is approx. 20 year old Arab/Appaloosa/Pinto Cross gelding. Buddy cam from the Sunnyside Kill Pen, August 2017. Although we haven't had him long, he has become a barn favorite to many. He has a puppy dog like personality, and will follow you anywhere you lead him. He stands approx. 14.3-15 Hands tall. And despite his age, he has lots of life and spunk left in him. Buddy is for advance beginners to intermediate rider. Buddy likes a quite rider, we don't think he has had a lot of experience in an indoor arena. Everyday that goes by he gets more comfortable in his surroundings, and will soon be a great lesson horse for any age/level of rider. He was already used in summer camp this august and did amazing. Buddy loves kids!!!! He sure has won everyone hearts here at PHS, and we feel very lucky to have him with us.
"Wonderland's Marigold" Aka "MariGold" is a 2005 Registered Palomino Welsh Pony Mare. She stands approx. 12 hands tall and is a wonderful babysitter for younger kids looking to ride and gain confidence on horse-back. She is amazing with the kids, very patience and has way more Whoa then Go. She will stand tied for hours for the kids to groom her and love on her. We have only had MariGold little over a year now, but she surely has become a large asset to our riding program here at PHS.
"A Sudden Celebrity" Aka "Diva" is a Registered APHA/Ptha Mare. She stands approx. 14.3 Hands. Diva is My Personal horse that I also show myself, but has been so gentle and easy going that I have began to use her for my lessons. She is good for any level of rider, from beginner to advanced. She builds confidence on anyone who rides her, as she is very willing, and only wants to please her rider. She has been shown from Open shows all the way up to Breed Level in APHA and Ptha Shows. Even though diva is only 7 years old, she has become a great asset to our program here, as well as been an amazing show horse for myself. She has also started going on trail rides, and is beginning to really enjoy life outside the arena, as well as life inside the arena.
