Boogie came all the way up to northern Michigan from Alabama from my sister- and brother-in-laws'. They used him for trail riding and he was also the little kids' favorite to groom and ride. His color is a beautiful cremello and he’s a gaited Tennessee Walking Horse. He has the prettiest caramel eyes! He hangs out with Walker in the pasture - they love to run and play together! Since moving to Michigan, Boogie has learned to like riding and swimming in the rivers and lakes...I'm not sure if he likes the snow but he sure does grow a thick winter coat!
Splash is a senior gelding who is a transplant from Tennessee! He was primarily used for English riding and jumping in his younger years when he was living in TN. Now he is enjoying retirement at RCHA by safely taking kids and lighter guests on rides through our trails. He’s so sweet and gentle, so my younger cousins love to brush and love on him.
Zee is an energetic gelding who I bought from my farrier. His family used him for everything - trails, barrels, roping, you name it! Now we get to enjoy him on the trail - he's always up for any adventure.
Chance is a sweet senior gelding who came from our 2021 RCHA Riding Instructor Molly's farm. He is a trail horse deluxe - he's travelled all over Michigan to trail rides and horse shows, so he's always up for a ride and he's not startled by anything. Prior to Molly owning him, he was actually on Mackinac Island as a guest horse! He's now enjoying retirement at RCHA and taking both kids and adults alike on the trail.
Walker keeps all of us on our toes! He’s the youngest horse in the herd and he came from an Amish farm downstate, so when I first got him I had to get him comfortable with being ridden next to running cars, tractors, or semis. Walker has an inquisitive personality and is always wanting to learn new tricks. He loves attention and always wants to play. He is mainly my guide horse and is rarely ridden by guests, but he still loves to get scratches so feel free to say hi!
Dexter joined our herd in the fall of 2021 and is another transplant from Alabama! He is the shortest horse in the herd. He has a sensitive personality and loves attention from people. This winter is his first Michigan winter and he's doing so well!
Yes, we now have two horses named Walker! This Walker is a black beauty and another sweet senior gelding who has fit right into our herd. With his previous owners, he rode many miles of trails, so there's not much he hasn't seen. He is a Tennessee Walking Horse just like Boogie! He is fun to ride for both beginner and advanced riders alike.
