The DE Horses

Jax

Jax

2011 American Warmblood (Hanovarian/TB) Gelding

Jax is a cool dude.  He’s a HUGE horse with a bit of a bull headed personality (VERY Smart and confident), so ground manners can be an issue.   He is sweet at heart however and loves attention and grooming.  He’s clever, reasonable and fabulous under saddle.  I started riding him after almost a year of rehab, but he is getting stronger and his talent is shining through.  In our short time together, he’s gone from a dodgy canter transition to 2nd level (and winning high points)!

Toby

2004 AQHA Gelding

Toby’s history is a little bit of a mystery but we have gathered that he was an accomplished Hunter Horse, as well as a reining horse in his younger days! He is a stoic, bombproof, laid back, grandma and small children safe type of guy who is the horse equivalent of grumpy cat. He has been with Kristin on her ranch for a little over a year. Ellie the youngest review team member has been “exploring” with Hunter, Ranch Work, and most recently barrel racing – he takes it like a champ. He is worth his weight in gold.
Sam

Sam

1999 Thoroughbred x Morgan Gelding

Sam has been with Kristin for over 13 years.  Sam has been there and done it all from showing off at hunter/jumper shows to trecking mountain trails.  He is Kristin’s go-to guy for everything!

Champ

Champ

2005 Oldenburg x Morgan Gelding

Champ is a goofy, adorable love bug of a horse.  He’s young at heart (though not so young in age anymore).  After an injury cut his show career short, he’s enjoying being a trail horse/lesson horse at a kids barn and he’s loving it!

Spice

1996 Thoroughbred Gelding

Spice was a one of a kind schoolmaster with more spunk than most horses half his age.  Spice showed to PSG (and reached it twice with two different riders) and trained to I1.  Spice taught Rachel all she knows about dressage and helped her earn her USDF Bronze Medal (and got darn close to her Sliver).   He was the 2018 4th Level Dressage Jockey Club TIP Champion in his last year showing.  He passed in 2019.

Titan OTTB Road To Gold

Titan

1996 Thoroughbred Gelding

Titan was a noble, generous and truly kind OTTB.  He was Rachel’s main tester of products for several years.  Many reviews have been based on experiences with him even though he’s now been gone for years.  He was a racehorse, an eventer, a barrel racer, a trail horse, a lesson horse and a barn favorite.  He passed in 2014.
