16 year old POA. 13.2hh. 170lb rider/tack combined weight limit. Rides dressage and hunter/jumper, trail rides, known to jump to 2' in competition historically, but is doing 18" currently. Was rehabbed from a broken tail by HHIA in summer 2017 with little to no residual scar tissue. She is actively in use in HHIA's lesson program.
Ideal for an intermediate rider because she is a "go" pony and likes to play when she does something exciting like a higher jump.
Excellent ground manners, very affectionate, emotionally steady and has not spooked since acquisition for rehab in June 2017. I am using her with beginner to advanced riders, but watch her closely with the beginners because she is so playful and head strong.
Easy Keeper: Currently lives on pasture, but has also lived in stall/turnout.
17 year old Saddlebred/Quarter cross. 15.3hh. 230lb rider/tack combined weight limit. Rides dressage and hunter/jumper, trail rides. Moves with excellent momentum and has jumped to 3' with flying lead changes at HHIA, but has much more potential. He is actively in use in HHIA's lesson program.
Ideal for an intermediate to advanced rider simply because of his skill set.
Ground manners are good except for during mounting, where he can become pushy. We are working through his mounting issues. He is a confident horse who enjoys his time under saddle.
Easy Keeper: Currently lives on pasture. Does best in pasture environment because he has minor COPD, which is well managed with supplement. His COPD has not interfered with his work in either hot/humid or cold/dry weather. We have not seen his COPD flare up since his arrival at HHIA in August 2018.
22 year old Quarter Horse. 15.3hh. 180lb rider/tack combined weight limit. As a "been there, done that" horse, Junior knows English and Western. He works well in the arena or on trails and is comfortable both with direct reining and neck reining. He is currently walk/trot due to arthritis in his right front knee, but improves in his abilities the longer he stays at HHIA where he is receiving rehab for it. He is actively in use in HHIA's lesson program and consistently makes students laugh about how much he likes ground poles.
Ideal for beginner riders. Moves easily, but not quickly.
Excellent ground manners, very affectionate, and emotionally steady.
Average Keeper: Currently lives on pasture, which movement and is ideal for his arthritis.
Scarlett is an untrained 10 year old from a local rescue organization currently in recovery from her previous home and starting training at HHIA. She wears a halter, leads and ties. She is very emotionally sensitive, defensive, forward and extremely intelligent. She is currently working through understanding that people aren't her predators when they are working with her.
She will likely be trained well enough to be adopted out in 2019.
