Does YOUR horse love their bit?


Target was purchased as a yearling at Crowley’s auction in Agawam, MA, in 2001. He was full of himself from the very beginning! Target has a larger than life personality, and is very, very smart. He is lucky he is so handsome, and has such smooth gaits, because he was a difficult start. Target was Stephanie’s horse after she outgrew Rosie, and she went on to do great things with him.  She was multiple Grand Champion at the VT State 4-H Show, she won everything locally and at the Fair with him, she went to the Big E, won Fitting and Showmanship, Equitation and Equitation Over Fences. She took him cattle sorting multliple times, and won money. She qualified to go to Kentucky with him in Showjumping, and if we could have afforded it, she would have gone and won! Stephanie made Target one of our finest schoolmasters, and he is a dependable member of our schoolhorse team. Target has an allergy to dust, and cannot be with the big group on large round bales for that reason. He is therefor pastured separately in his own run-in.

Target has a reputation as a horse with “attitude”. He knows what you know, and he knows what you don’t know, and he knows it’s his job to teach you the difference. Target has a sense of humor that is not always shared by his riders until they are experienced enough to love this about him.

Target sustained an injury to his knee in September 2018, and has been very limited in ability since. We are hoping he will make a full recovery...

R.U. Sirius

Sirius is Stephanies horse, acquired in 2011, as a 4 year old. He was originally a premarin foal, made his way to Rutgers University as a project horse in their veterinary program, and then was sold at auction to a wonderful, generous man who taught him to drive and then found him a person who could take him to his potential- and that was Stephanie! We are very fortunate to have him available in our lesson program. He has become a schoolmaster.

Sirius is a warhorse- huge, beautiful, regal and proud. He has been schooled to perfection in the dressage arena and over jumps. However he is also kind and generous, and can be ridden in class if you ask.
