Brownie

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

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. In the pasture Caspian finds support in his best friend China, and in the arenahe looks for support from his human partner. When Caspian finds that trustworthy relationship, he is confident and sweet.

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.

She insists you are serious about a task before she will participate; then she will complete the task merrily at her own steady speed. She is a fun and versatile pony who isn’t very demonstrative in her show of affection, but as you gain her trust and friendship, you can see her soften and you know she will do anything for her friends.
