The Club's School Horses
Affectionately known as Govy, this 27-year-old bay Morgan gelding is worth his weight in gold! He is the best lesson horse imaginable and is everyone’s favorite. Govy has happily taught hundreds of kids to ride at the Village Club. He is great for beginners and anyone a bit apprehensive about riding. Govy is trustworthy and is the backbone of our lesson program at the Village Club.
A red roan Quarter horse gelding, Newt is the sweetest horse you could ever meet; he treats everyone as if each is his new best friend. Newt can be ridden both English and Western and is an excellent horse for beginners! Newt has a very kind eye and a very slow and steady canter; he is our go-to lesson horse to teach beginners how to canter once they are ready.
Domino is a black Welsh Cob pony. As the only actual pony in the program, Domino is very special, and he knows it! Domino is a great pony for kids transitioning from beginners to advanced beginners and is a fun ride for riders of any level. Domino has very comfortable gaits and though sometimes a bit on the lazy side he is a great pony for kids to safely learn more advanced riding techniques.
A chestnut gelding and extremely well broke Western horse, Cowboy is suitable for more advanced beginners who possess quiet hands and a quiet seat. Cowboy is a fancy mover and has smooth comfortable gaits, though he prefers the Western disciplines he can be ridden both Western and English. Cowboy is sensitive but sensible and responds wonderfully to subtle riding aides.
A liver chestnut Draft/Quarter horse cross mare, Ginger is a super sweet and quiet mare with very comfortable gaits. Ginger is a younger horse who, though still learning, is an extraordinarily sensible, calm, and forgiving ride. Ginger is suitable for more advanced beginners and is starting to learn how to jump and perform basic dressage movements. Ginger has a special affinity for teenage girls and is particularly fond of the extended grooming time and loving attention that her teenage fan club provides.
