Jazz is a 13 year old pony who loves her job. She will be in a program with her owner, Maggie, who is at the Short Stirrup Level this year. The on-farm lease opportunity is best suited for a child learning and interested in competing in the walk/trot divisions. Showing opportunities at local hunter/jumper shows, AQHA Small Fry and All Breed Classes, Combined Test w/t shows, w/t Western Dressage, etc.
Jazz loves kids and is super at horse shows. Lease riders take one lesson per week and have an additional day to practice ride with supervision. Jazz is also excellent in the barn for riders to learn how to groom, clip, wrap legs, etc. She is truly a sweet girl.
Lease riders included in our Central Virginia Student Rider Club activities as well as Youth Development through AQHA.

She will be in a program with her owner, KC, who is working with a trainer to continue Rosie's training for all RCH disciplines as well as advanced flatwork for english disciplines such as dressage, Western dressage, and Equitation on the Flat. The on-farm lease opportunity is best suited for an Intermediate rider ready to learn training techniques and interested in competing in local shows, western dressage, and Virginia Quarter Horse Association shows.
Rosie loves people and is level headed. She learns fast and loves to figure out exercises and patterns. Rosie is brave outside the ring. She loves to be groomed and will learn all about being a show horse this year.

Limerick would be a great opportunity for a college rider to use for the summer/off season to practice for their school team. He is excellent to learn on, embraces repetition needed for practicing, and is wonderful on the lunge line for advanced lunge lessons. He is truly a diamond in the rough. He is friendly, sweet, and really loves attention. He is great to learn hands on skills like clipping, wrapping legs, etc.
Limerick is a teenager who has had a lot of time off because his owner (KC) has been otherwise occupied! He's very talented on the flat and over fences. He will be back in work in 2023. He is very tall at 18hands. He would be best suited for an Intermediate rider looking to improve their position and education in hunt seat riding, equitation, dressage, and over fences. Limerick can travel with us to local hunter/jumper shows, clinics, and combined test days.
Nike is a 16.1h TB gelding in his early 20s. He is best suited for an Intermediate rider as he still is very motivated to work and answer your cues. He has been ridden in all disciplines and is very educated. He has recently been started by a college student on R+ training and is so smart! This could be a great opportunity to learn this training technique.
Nike is a great partner and has an amazing work ethic. While he is still sound to jump and is quite athletic, he would need a commitment from his lease rider to develop physically back to jumping program. He can travel to shows, participate virtually in Shawna Karrash's R+ training course, trail ride, and be a college practice horse as well. He is very gently, loves people, and is a true gentleman.
