Anyone who has spent time around horses knows they embody a quiet wisdom and natural curiosity. Along with the physical pleasure of learning to ride a horse comes the emotional connection to a nonjudgmental and loving friend.
Lulu and Daisy were some of the first horses to be a part of our program. Recently we have had Rockstar and Cinder join us. They are the four amigos now. We refer to them as “The Mini’s”. They play dress up with the kids during camps, get painted and taken on parade often and are part of our community outreach programs with the elderly when they come to visit. They really are Dreamhaven’s little angels in horse hair.
Nutter is a 17 year old Palomino Quarter horse. He is one of the favorites here at Dreamhaven. Handsome and good natured, this big palomino is our confidence builder for those nervous but eager riders. He has a heart of gold and can be trusted with any rider. We affectionately call him our Eore. We often say out loud “okay, if you say so”. Nutter is surely what we call our “million dollar horse”.
Jimmy is a 19 year old Multi Colored Paint. He is the all-around favorite at the ranch. He came to us a sore, exhausted horse with little or no personality but has blossomed into a multi-talented horse. His talents range from trail riding, hunter hack jumping to being a calm lesson horse for the kids. Jimmy can have a bit of a tude from time to time and with that comes his “look”, which says a lot about his unique personality.
Winston is an 11 year old Morgan Chocolate Palomino. Everyone loves this handsome boy! He has a big personality and loves to be in the middle of everything. This is the first season that the kids have ridden him. He is doing pretty well with an occasional “Winston Moment”. He is an amazing therapy horse as he is so funny & amusing but he is very sensitive and intuitive to the people around him.
Perla is a 9 year old Icelandic pony. Her mane is bigger than she is! We are excited for her to be joining our team and we have a feeling she will be one of the ranch favorites.
Smoke’m is a 13 year old Bay Overo Paint. He is one of the newer horses that have now found his place at the ranch. He is a very handsome boy with a big heart. He’s a pretty calm dude. He has won many ribbons showing with his previous owner, so you could say he is a winner who also loves to run!
Wylie is a 17 year old bay/roan Arabian. Because of his Arab breeding he is a high energy level/endurance horse. He’s that one horse that loves attention and has to be in the middle of everything!
Charlie is our newest addition. He is an adorable Hackney cross pony. He is smart, sweet and very willing to most things that we ask of him. We welcome Charlie to the Dreamhaven family and look forward to next session season because we are sure he will be a favorite!
Ransom is an 18 year old Missouri fox trotter. This means he is gated. He loves when he gets the chance to be groomed by all the kids here at the ranch. He certainly is a handsome guy.
Virgil is a 22 year old Arabian/quarter horse. This guy has lots of get up and go for his age. He is so sweet and thoughtful to everyone out here at the ranch. He is enjoying his new role out at Dreamhaven and has a special heart for the kids.
