Meet The Horses
Thank you for your interest in meeting all of our horses. We make sure to give all of our horses time off so not all horses are available for all rides. Because of this we cannot take requests for a specific horse for your ride.
Patient and loyal are two words that describe Freedom well. A bay quarter horse gelding, he is the perfect ride for anyone who is nervous. On the trail he is mild mannered and easy-going. It’s hard to believe that this mellow fellow is an award-winning barrel racing horse in his spare time!
A born leader. You will often find this impressive Percheron / Thoroughbred mix at the front of the trail ride. He is 16.3 hands, and solid muscle. Black with a white star beneath his forelock, Patriot stands out in the herd.
Tanners brother, the other half of “the twins” has an identical white blaze, and is a similar build to Tanner. Scout and Tanner may be shorter in stature, but they are big in heart. Scout is dependable to the core, and a joy to have on any trail ride.
One of our “Kentucky Girls”, Stella is a Rocky Mountain Horse “mix”, making her smooth gait and narrow build a very comfortable ride. Stella is happy to lead the trail ride, or to follow somewhere along the line.
Part two of the “Kentucky Girls” Scarlet has been with us since May 2010. A trail horse from Kentucky, she has been a favorite among our guests. A beautiful redhead, she is part Tennessee Walker and, like Stella, her smooth gait and narrow build make for a very comfortable ride.
Often referred to as one of “the twins” this handsome Palomino has a bold white blaze. As his winter coat comes in, you can see golden dappling along his flanks. He is content to follow behind the bigger horses, and enjoys his walks through the Gettysburg park.
