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 ridden by Kara. Also purchased off the race track in 2004. Successfully competed training and has schooled preliminary and second level dressage. He was 9th in the nation at Training in 2011. 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.
Tucker is our lesson horse in training. He's a 2006 15.2 hand TB. Former race horse, he's related to Secretariat. Stay tuned for his progress!
Cresent is our newest member of the Crew joining us just a few days before Christmas 2012. He is a well known, incredible lesson pony from Winning Ways stable. He has already stolen the hearts of the students who have ridden him :-)
Kara's original TB! Born in 1983, Jae raced, evented to preliminary, showjumped and pony clubbed to A. He is currently teaching lessons and has the best canter in the barn!
"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
A very beloved lesson horse, Folly is a 14.2 hand QH. He's beginner friendly and wonderful with hippotherapy students but will take the more intermediate rider to the beach or over jumps!
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!
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.
Our newest lesson pony who we bought in Sept. of 2012 after the loss of our dear pony Frodo. Nemo has had some big shoes to fill but he's settling in nicely. He is 12.2 red roan welsh cross who spent some time in the hunter world before becoming a lesson 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.
Jaz is a NSH/Arab cross who is suitable for intermediate to advanced students. Jaz is quite soft and senstive and loves to jump.
