BREEZY

Gender: Mare

Color: Chestnut

Breed: Appaloosa Sport Horse

In 2000, Breezy was purchased as our owners show horse. Prior to this Breezy was primarily used for trail riding and parades. After a season of training, Breezy started her local showing career. In their first year showing together, they received Grand Champion High Point in their division at the county fair and went on to the Ohio State Fair, where they finished in the Top 5 in Hunter Hack. Over their next two years showing together, they competed in dressage, hunters, competitive trail riding, showmanship, cross country jumping, and gymkhana events.

Breezy is now an experienced lesson horse, and has taught countless riders (of all ages). She loves to school cross country and jump around the arena. She's great out on the trails and loves to travel - you've never seen her walk faster than when she's pointed at an open horse trailer door. She is one of the most versatile horses on the farm, safe enough for a first time rider, yet fun and exciting for more advanced students to learn something new on every week.

Jewel moved to Florida with Regina as she was reaching riding age. In 2005, Jewel began her training under saddle and as many would say, was “born broke”. She was very easy to train and her gentle demeanor made her very easy to bring along. After a few months, Jewel became a part of our leasing program. While she can be a bit lazy, she is a relaxing and easy horse to ride. She is one of the most personable horses at Haile Equestrian and is always looking for a good scratching. Jewel loves to go out to hunter paces and school cross country. Has shown dressage and schools second level. Much like her mother, Breezy, she is one of the most versatile horses on the farm, safe enough for a first time rider, yet fun and exciting for more advanced students to learn something new on every week. She also happily jogs and lopes around a western lesson. She is an all around amazing mare!

After competing for several years, she was purchased by our sister farm, Eclipse Sporthorses LLC, as a broodmare to add her prestigious bloodlines to our breeding program. Mira had a lovely filly in 2011 who is being raised on our other farm just outside of Gainesville. Due to her late foaling date in 2011, we decided to skip a year breeding her and have her join our riding program at Haile Equestrian in the meantime. Mira had a foal named “Ichabod” in 2013 and is due to have another foal in the spring of 2014.

PEDRO

Gender: Gelding

Color: Bay Roan

Breed: Quarter Horse

Pedro is a Quarter Horse, but was born into a life of racehorses. He never raced himself, but was a "pony horse" on the track for the first 9 years of his life, meaning that he was one of the horses that led the racehorses along the track to the starting gate. He has traveled all over the country as a pony horse on the race track. When his former owner no longer needed him on the track, we purchased him. While he was very well-trained, he had never seen a jump before and needed a more formal education. He quickly learned his new job and is a happy guy. This guy is an absolute favorite on the farm. He's big, gorgeous, and the sweetest guy! He is a rockstar to school cross county and loves the hunter paces. He is a saint at the horse shows and will help you win your first blue ribbon. He has been shown dressage and hunters with great success.

Tatty

Tatty is Mr. Personality - he is a character in the barn and is a charming, sweet gelding with a great work ethic under saddle.Tatty was raised on a Haflinger farm in Ohio by his breeder. He was trained in dressage and later sold to a lady in Texas. After having Tatty for a couple years, his owner just didn’t ‘click’ with Tatty and decided to find him a home where he could have a job. Tatty came to us in the Summer of 2012 and we just adore him. He has a beautiful face and charming personality. He is often teased for his droopy lower lip as he naps in the cross ties. Tatty is always looking to catch a quick nap before his lessons. He is a very fun horse to ride and enjoys teaching beginners. He is a very active horse in our lesson and leasing program, specializing in beginner and novice lessons. He loves to go out to the hunter paces and school cross country. He also excels in dressage and is a favorite mount for our dressage students. He also rides western for our beginner and novice students. Don't be fooled by his size, this guy is the total package!
