MEET YOUR EQUINE COACHES
Doc’s Roan Cat, mostly known as “Harley” is a 14 year-old American Quarter Horse who came into my life several years ago. Her previous owner was a barrel racer, but Harley’s heart just was not into competition. She was given the barn name “Harley” because her owner had to sell his Harley Davidson motorcycle to buy her. Since my father sold Harley Davidson bikes a long time ago I fell in love with the name and with her. When she came to live with me Harley was very anxious. She would flinch if you reached up to touch her. After a few years of being able to live as a horse she became very comfortable and content around people. In 2016 she contracted a disease which left her blind in one eye. After a short adjustment period and with help from her pasture mate, Luke, she regained her confidence. It seems her diminished sight has heightened her other senses and has increased her coaching abilities. She reads human emotion like a book and she’s waiting to read your story.
"My horse's feet are as swift as rolling thunder He carries me away from all my fears And when the world threatens to fall asunder His mane is there to wipe away my tears."
Spirit is a 16 year old American Paint horse. He was bred locally and was purchased by a very close friend of mine shortly after he was weaned. An amazing older horse woman named Ann worked with my friend to train the young horse. Spirit & his owner competed in Western pleasure horse shows, but their true love was spending countless hours together exploring the beauty of Shawnee National Forest and many other trails. Spirit proved to be a fearless trail horse as he crossed water, navigated unfamiliar territory and faced every turn with alert curiosity. This athletic, strong horse also spent a few seasons as an outrider at the local horse racetrack.
Come out to the farm with curiosity and let Spirit help you to navigate your future.
"Look back at our struggle for freedom, Trace our present day's strength to its source;
And you'll find that man's pathway to glory is strewn with the bones of the horse."
