Our Horses

Image-empty-state.png

Belle

Height:

Belle is my sister-in-law's personal horse and recently moved back to the farm when she and her family moved back home from Alabama. Belle was actually born on this farm and my sister-in-law raised her from a foal. Belle is our only mare, so she is definitely queen of the herd! Both Zee and Dexter follow her around everywhere. Belle will not be used for RCHA rides, but she's still part of the RCHA family!

Splash

15.2 hh
Height:

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.

Walker #2

14.3 hh
Height:

Yes, we now have two horses named Walker! This Walker is a black beauty and another 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.

Boogie

15.0 hh
Height:

Boogie is also my sister-in-law's horse and he came all the way up to northern Michigan from Alabama. 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 experienced a "real" winter...I'm not sure if he likes the snow but he sure does grow a thick winter coat!

Teddy

Height:

Teddy is Molly's horse and is a beautiful stout gelding. He is visiting RCHA for the season. He is great for intermediate - advanced riders both for lessons and on the trail. Molly has exposed him to a lot this summer - from our Kids Camp to River Rides to different sights and sounds on the trail. He is a great all-around horse to have with us for the season!

Zee

15.0 hh
Height:

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. Watch out though - he does love to snack while on the trail!

Dexter

14.1 hh
Height:

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 very sensitive personality and loves attention from people. He is great both in lessons and on the trails.

Walker

15.3 hh
Height:

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 Amanda's personal horse and is rarely ridden by guests, but he still loves to get scratches so feel free to say hi!
