Written by Dot Morgan (Executive Director) Standardbreds are quieter and more tolerant of mistakes than Thoroughbreds. These horses are accustomed to standing patiently in cross ties for hours and are satisfied to leave the premises alone. They have been bathed, shipped, and shod extensively and usually have exceptional ground manners

We are pleased to introduce “Brother Terry” a 6 year old, 16.1 1/2hh Thoroughbred gelding now available for adoption at our Marysville, Ohio facility! Terry is more awesome in person then his pictures could ever depict. Big, flashy, and well proportioned with a great personality. What more could anyone ask for! This horse definitely gets everyone’s attention. He is a very sweet, gentle soul who is really looking for someone to be his leader and protector because he is timid by nature despite his size. Under saddle he is much braver with a good work ethic and always willing to try his hardest. He seems to enjoy working both inside and outside of the arena.

I’ve been privy to enough new product launches, tried and tried again new-to-market fashions and understand the great importance of not only riding top but looking top in the process (this means if you have a brown saddle you better be darn sure you’re sporting a brown girth and bridle!) thus I feel compelled to share a happening new range from the folks at SmartPak dubbed Alexus complete with the hip byline aesthetic, athletic, alexus! Schweet! The Alexus Hybrid Jacket is a nice tailored fit without being too tight and the contrasting black sides are slimming too.

By Jan Westmark-Allan I love a good inspirational story or a person who inspires me to be a “better me.” That’s exactly what happens when I watch the Para-Equestrians. It makes problems I have seem insignificant – to watch these amazing riders and what they have accomplished, despite their limitations.
