"Sea Me Smile" Pippin
Kara's main competition horse. Purchased as a 3 yr old from the track in 2004. Pippin is quite a character and smiles for treats! He has successfully competed at Preliminary in eventing, the 1.20 meter jumpers, and is currently schooling third level dressage. His true love though is out hacking with mom + running on the beach!
Owned by Pete King and Kara. He was purchased off the race track in 2004 with Pippin. Successfully competed training level eventing and has schooled preliminary and second level dressage. He was 9th in the nation at Training in 2011. In 2011, he won both Prelim-Training divisions at UNH. He retired from main competition in 2012 with a 4th place finish at his favorite event, GMHA. Manta has begun his teaching career in 2012 and is quickly becoming a favorite among the more advanced students.
Rappy is owned by Ellen Whitman but SSS riders have the opportunity to ride and learn from this wonderful mare.
"Better Believe It" Baloo
Baloo is a 2008 Clyde/TB cross. He is Kara's current project and is turning into quite the successful show-man! He loves to work and is the most friendly guy in the paddock! See the results section for his current show record
Domino is our 13.2 hand lesson pony who can start riders or work with older kids learning to canter and jump. He has been out competing in pre-elementary events in 2012 with Sarah Suidit and doing very well.
2004 14.3 hand Paint Gelding who joined SSS in March of 2014. He's fitting in very well and already won ribbons in dressage and schooling xc. Looking forward to a long and happy partnership with this lovely guy!
Optimus is Baloo's full brother and came to SSS in Nov. of 2013. 2009 Clyde/TB cross. Standing at 17.3 at 4 1/2 he is a very prominent new addition to the SSS crew. We'll see what his future holds! He is Ryan's pony!
Bing is a well loved 14 hand cross. He's solid w/t/c and apparently has a successful history in the pony jumpers! Bing helps with hippotherapy as well as with beginner to intermediate riders. He's awesome on the lunge line and he's the definition of a point-and-shoot pony!
One of the favorite lesson horses. Fieval competed with Kara for many years up to novice and first level dressage. He teaches his riders that riding correctly will give you a wonderful feeling of throughness.
