Daystar's Nike Can Wait is a 21 year old bay connemara cross gelding standing 15 1/2 hh tall. He is Yvonne's first horse and her pride and joy. Nike is used primarily for intermediate to advanced riders but is patient enough to teach older beginner kids. He came to Yvonne as a two year old knowing nothing, he is her life long riding partner. Everyone on the show circuit knows Nike which makes Yvonne proud. Inevitable he steps off the trailer at a show and someone says "Oh Nike is here!" Nike has a freeze brand on his left hip of a four leaf clover and an "N" in the middle. Yvonne decided on this since connemaras are orginally from Ireland and he definitely has the connemara spirit. Nike loves to jump and has jumped as high as 3'6" competively. He won circuit champion for low jumpers at Moriah horse show in 2015. He is an amazing horse and everyone that has ever gotten a chance to ride him loves him. Nike's favorite treat is watermelon which he gets every year on his birthday, and no he doesn't share. This year he is teaching the next generation of riders to love competing at jumper shows
Lullabye Lyric is a 12 year old chestnut quarter horse/ welsh pony cross standing 13.2 hh tall. She came to us in February 2013 from Central Virginia Horse Rescue. She is one of the most loveable ponies you will ever meet. Lyric's favorite treat is popcorn! As of July 2019 Lyric is retired from the lesson program. She is loving life at our retirement facility in Linden
" Frankly, Miss Scarlett" aka "Scarlett" is a 14hh 17 year old chestnut quarter horse pony. She came to us in October of 2014 from a very loving family that could not take her on their move to a different state. We have always said that if we found another pony that is as loving as Lyric we would buy her in a heart beat. So needless to say when we got the opportunity to have her as apart of our horse family, we jumped! Scarlett can do it all, she will be patient with your little one as well as help your child excel over jumps. Scarlett won the circuit champion for puddle jumpers at Moriah horse show 2015 as well as 2017 Picturesque division end leadline with a 3 year old rider. She is the easiest pony to learn to trot on. We have found that Scarlett's favorite treat is Nacho Cheese Doritos. It is really funny to see her muzzle covered in Dorito crumbs.
"Tawny Tiger RBR" aka Ty is a 9 year old 14.1hh paint pony that is on lease to us. You will hear him referred around the barn as "Ty Baby". He may be the youngest but he is an old soul. Ty is very easy to ride and can teach the beginners as well as the more advanced students. A lot of our beginner adults love riding him. His favorite treats are Sweet Tarts!
