Mac and Cheese

Mac previously went by the name "Smoke" before we purchased him. He was a barrel racing prospect whose prior owners were selling due to the need to downsize. Mac was a little tough to start under saddle in the beginning, but took to cross country like a fish to water, and competed through the beginner novice level before selling as a youth all-around mount.

Hershey, formerly known as "Star," was a backyard pet when we purchased her. Her amiable nature made her a breeze to start under saddle, where she discovered a love of trail riding and played around in the hunters. She moved on from us earlier than most, as her new owners were looking for something they could continue to train themselves.

Napoleon is the project that started it all. Purchased in 2016 by Christina, he had been a "surprise" baby at his previous home and was unbroke and unmannered. Allie backed him and got him going as a jumping and all-around mount before selling him to a 4-H home and deciding to start shopping for projects intentionally.

Our project program involves intentionally procuring or shopping for horses or ponies within a certain budget, age range, and with specific conformational and personality characteristics.  Most of the projects come from loving homes but are unsuited for their current jobs or for their current owners due to behavioral issues. 

 

After obtaining a new project horse or pony, we spend time figuring out its strengths and weaknesses before mapping out a plan and schedule for their retraining and future sale.  Most projects are in training for about 9-12 months before being sold.  During that time period, they're exposed to as many things as possible, including trail riding, jumping, showing, riding in groups, performing in lessons, lunging, and learning proper groundwork.  If necessary, they're also brought up-to-date on all of their veterinary, dental, chiro, and farrier work.  We usually aim to have 2-3 projects in our program at any given time. 

Projects are both ridden and shown by the students in our lesson and training program, giving unique opportunities to students outside of their own personal horses. In addition, we aim to provide our projects with the skills and experience that will help guarantee a good home for life.

 

Opportunities for investment and ownership are also available to bring on additional projects for interested parties!
