HI POINT HORSEMANSHIP
SAQ Zans Okie Leo "LEO"
2010 Paint Horse Gelding
Zans Vanilla Frost SON!
Owned by Brianne and loved by all. Leo is the resident rockstar. With the most likeable personality, cute, big brown eyes, smooth gaits, easy to ride, too many good qualities to list! And he's a palomino!
Shamus O' Luck "LUCKY"
2000 Gaited Curly Appaloosa Hinny
You read that right. Gaited Curly Appaloosa Hinny. But what does that mean??? Hinny means: his dam was a donkey, his sire was a horse. (Mules have a horse dam and donkey sire) Lucky is hypo-allergenic for most people with a horse allergy. He is also gaited- he can flat walk, and saddle rack. It is incredibly smooth to ride, and quite impressive to watch. Lucky is pretty much a unicorn.
At Hi Point Horsemanship, we keep our lesson horses in the best shape possible, with the best care. Here's what their benefit package includes:
These are the real teachers. Honest, unbiased, and sincere.
Sierra Sunshine "SUNSHINE"
Elko Nevada x Rubicon Sunrise
2010 Gaited Curly Mare
They don't come much smarter then Sunshine. this little mare was born ready to ride. she has a strong work ethic, and makes sure you know if you aren't riding to her standard. She is gaited and has a pretty fun saddle rack and fox trot. She can also trot. Gives you an idea of how athletic she is being able to switch from lateral to diagonal gaits. She is also hypo-allergenic!
2003 Grade Mare
Dixie is a sweet mare who tries her hardest at everything she does. Owned by Carla, Dixie excels with new riders, but loves a challenge when learning new maneuvers. Dixie was recently Reserve Champ for Basic Level at the SMWSD June Jamboree Western Dressage Show 2016. But thats not all Dixie has an extensive resume:
1999 Quarter Horse Gelding
Texas has got a heart as big as the state he's named after. Owned by Brianne but a full time Hi Point resident since fall 2017, he loves teaching new riders everything he knows (and its a lot!) Starting his riding days as a barrel horse, his owners soon realized that was not Texas' passion. He spent most of his teen years semi retired and going on the occasional trail ride with a variaty of different owners. Brianne bought him in 2010 and has been enjoying him since. Tex loves to take naps in the sun with his buddies Harley and Cash as well as ride in semi private lessons with his patrner in crime, Peeka (she is responsible for 100% of said crime though)
1992 Welsh Pony gelding
Scooter is the pony that everyone wants. He does it all, and he does it well. A super athletic pony with a big heart, Scooter can always be depended on to help new riders, or be a blast for more experienced riders. He loves scratches, carrots and his herd of mares. If someone were to give me a pony for Christmas as a child I would have wanted Scooter.
Ace's Sugar Bear "SUGAR BEAR"
2012 APHA Mare
Sugar Bear is as sweet as her name implies. And pretty. And Athletic. Owned by Fern, Sugar Bear has been a dream to work with. She is in continued training, and is only used in a few select lessons. At her first ever show she was Reserve Champion for her level.
FF DASHIN LITTLEPEPPY "Peeka"
Dashin Duster x PC Cut Little Peppy
Peeka is a 2007 APHA mare
Peeka is a fan favourite around here; shes got a lot of personality and the cutest little black spots on her. Working previously at Camp Assiniboia and with Urban Stable as a therapy horse, Peeka has a huge heart and makes even the most nervous riders feel safe. Yet with names such as Two Eyed Jack and Peppy San Badger on her papers shes got some spunk for the more confident riders. Peeka is a super star of a lesson horse with a unique ability to read her rider and perform accordingly.
Her hobbies include:
1995 Welsh Pony Gelding
Jerry is an older pony with fuzzy old man eyebrows. He has been retired for most of his life, but seems to enjoy the attention, love, and treats that come with being a kids lesson pony. Do you want to learn how to ride? Jerry will teach you! Him and Scooter are the best of friends.
Happy, Healthy Horses. Naturally.
