Our Horses


Brownie, Miss. B, or Brownie-kins as she is affectionately called by the students, is a 2010 Percheron Thoroughbred Quarter horse cross mare who stands around a magnificent 16 hands. Brownie teaches us that things are not always as they seem from the outside. One might assume that with her big body and presence Brownie would have the confidence to go with it, but she does best with someone to take the leader role with confidence and assertive energy.She is also very sensitive even though she is large, and that assertive energy only needs to be a clear thought and a breath, and maybe a touch of the reins to guide her. 


Caspian, AKA Prince Caspian-His Royal Highness, is a 2007 Percheron Cross Gelding. Caspian is a crowd favourite and very photogenic with his long, thick mane and tail. He is all about relationships and needs to trust his partner since he can get anxious about tasks that feel daunting to complete without the support of a good friend. When in the arena, Caspian looks for support from his human partner. When Caspian finds that trustworthy relationship, he is confident and sweet. 


Dexter is a 2012 Quarter Horse gelding. He may be new to Urban Stable, but he is not new to helping youth unbridle their potential! Dexter has many years experience on trail rides, being a lesson horse, and helping youth build confidence at various programs. Dexter likes to party, as you can see from his decorated coat that was painted by his previous owners. He is fun loving, playful, cheeky and likes searching for treats!


May is a 2012 Tennessee Walker Cross mare. May is super sweet, calm and likes to take things easy. Though she likes a relaxed pace she has a turbo-boost in her back pocket. May can pull out a big, ground eating walk and trot thanks to her Tennessee Walker genes, leaving everyone else in the dust, and a smile on her rider’s face. She’s so smooth though you’ll barely even notice her turbo-boost has been engaged.   


Nickel, AKA “Nick”, is a 2011 Quarter Horse gelding. He is brothers with Peso. Nick is new to Urban Stable and has been busy learning many new skills. Nick's favourite thing is to hang out with his student and be groomed. Nick is kind, quiet, loves relaxing and making new friends.


Peso is a 2012 Quarter Horse gelding. You will often find him hanging out in the pasture with his brother Nic. Peso is new to Urban Stable and has been learning many new skills, finding confidence to step outside his comfort zone, trying something new, and getting ready to help our students do these very same things. This young boy is very sweet, playful, easy going, and loves his treats!


River is a 2012 Quarter Horse mare. She has many skills and experience as a western pleasure horse under her belt. River loves to get some exercise and then relax with her two and four legged friends. She also loves playing games in the arena that involve using cones. She really likes checking out each cone, sniffing it, and sometimes picking it up in her mouth! River is great at being true to herself while making new friends and can help her human friends learn to do the same.
