15.2 Thoroughbred Gelding, Born 2013

McGreggor excelled in his former life as a hunter/jumper pony and lesson mount but his jumping career was cut short and he needed work that was less taxing. His owner, Lucy Reich, thought of Saddle Up! and we are grateful for the donation of this super sweet boy who is loving his new job at Saddle Up! Mac has made a lot of new friends since coming to Saddle Up! and not only a good lesson partner but is also a good pasture mate.


11.3 Bay Welsh Pony Gelding, Born 2014

Mango has been a lesson pony for most of his career and he has wonderful patience with our riders. Mango is an easy-going little guy and perfectly suited to be a therapy horse due his size and good demeanor. Don’t be fooled when you see him around the farm – Sampson hasn’t lost that much weight! Mango is also a bay pony but has much longer legs, so his tummy is not as close to the ground!

16 hh Morgan Friesian Cross Gelding, Born 2017

Governor was generously purchased for the Saddle Up! program by funds from the Annual Governor’s Club Holiday Auction and he is a wonderful addition to our program. Governor has lovely walk/trot/canter gaits for our more advanced and independent riders and he is also learning how to be a vaulting horse, with much success. He is the biggest lovebug and adores people and attention! His stately presence, glossy black coat and beautiful conformation have earned him “Most Handsome” honors (but don’t tell the others!).

8.3 hh Miniature Horse Mare, Born 2009

Super sweet and very pretty, this petite paint mare brings a smile to everyone’s face. She loves people and her forever best buddy, Dan. Thumby is part of our Equestrian Learning Programs and her small size makes her super portable for those times that we take the power of equine assisted therapy to groups and outside events. Thumby was donated to Saddle Up! by Mary Beth Fortugno.

9 hh Miniature Mule Gelding, Born 2009

Another small but mighty member of the herd, Dan was generously donated to us by Mary Beth Fortugno and came to Saddle Up! with his very best friend Thumbelina. Dan is well known as a stubborn little fellow and a super messy eater but, despite his quirks, he is fun to be around and a great addition to our Equine Assisted Learning program.

14.2 Appaloosa Pony Gelding, Born 2014

This little Appaloosa pony is willing and super smart. Show him something once and he’s ‘got it’! If you are trying to tell Tonka and Oscar apart, just look at the face. Tonka’s face is full red roan, making his appearance very unique and his actual breed hard a little bit of a mystery.

14h Gypsy Cob Gelding, Born 2010

Buddy joins Harry in the Gypsy Cob band and we love having these sturdy and good minded geldings in lessons. Buddy was born and raised just over the hill near Spring Hill and his gentle nature shows how much he was handled by kids in his previous life.

14.3h Andalusian Cross Mare, Born 2005

Lovely Rita (Meter Maid) is a 17 years young Andalusian Cross and, like Harry, is on loan to us through the generosity of our Equine Director, Susannah Denney. Rita has been a lesson horse, therapy horse, and all-around great mare in her career. We love her gentle eyes and long bangs as well as her great attitude.

14h Gypsy Cob Gelding, Born 2010

Harry is a 12 year old gypsy cob, affectionately known around the barn as “Hairy Harry” because of his beautiful feathers, long whiskers and flowing mane and tail (the Harry comes from his mom’s favorite musician, Harry Styles!). You can tell Harry and Buddy apart because Harry has more white on his face and cute spots on his neck. Harry has therapy horse experience, having been part of the herd at Equest in Texas.

14h Chestnut Quarter Horse Mare, Born 1999

This beautiful Quarter Horse mare has a personality to match! She is on loan to Saddle Up! from our Barn Manager, Jordan, and they had a wonderful competition career together. Lexi is skilled in all types of Western disciplines and is a gentle and easy ride.
