Lady Fyn --
Fyn is a 2006 yr old dapple bay 7/8 TB mare that stands 15.2hh. Fyn came to me with absolutely zero confidence & she only listened to commands out of fear. She just needed somebody to trust and show her people weren't as bad as she thought. She has come so far that she is now teaching a few people to ride horses, and I started them with just a halter and lead rope. She is an amazing horse who I trust with my life now. I have jumped her 3'6" bareback, have done barrel racing, key hole, poles, and lots of trails with her. She is absolutely amazing! Her best friend is Tulsa and she does everything I ask of her and always runs up to me in the field, and even plays tag with me in the arena.
Grade quarter horse gelding born April 14, 2010. He is now 14hh. I raised him and trained him. He is a total sweetheart and a real puppy dog. I call him a "bunskin" He is a very very light bay, or a dark buckskin with some characteristics of a dun. He has a matching heart on his left side, like I do on the left side of my neck. I swear, we were a match made in Heaven. He's my baby and I don't know what I would do without him. Boarders have always asked if I would be interested in selling him to them and always compliment him on how beautiful he is and how sweet and calm he is. On his 3rd ride he was riding down the road that was busy with big trucks and tractors, and didn't even care! His 4th ride, we rode bridleless, without a neck rope.

16.3-17 hh 2003 cremello paint mare. Came to me very pushy and nervous, not handled in over 2 years, terrible feet, didn't catch, stand or tie, and terribly head shy. Now I teach people to ride on her and she is a total sweetheart, she's a total gentle giant. When you're petting her and you all the sudden stop, she looks at you like "Umm, excuse me? I never gave you permission to stop!" She loves attention and apple slices covered in molasses and bran! She is a true trail horse, she follows any horse and will stay behind if asked. She even rests her forehead on the horses butt in front of her sometimes too! She bows, rears, dances, kisses, hugs, and jumps on command now too!

14.2hh black 2004 AQHA & 97% FQHA mare with impeccable breeding. A rescue that would buck, bolt, rear, lunge at people with her ears back/teeth bared, didn't catch, tie, lead or halter, she had to be cross tied/double blindfolded/feet tied down to trim her feet, head shy, pulled back so hard she snapped a tow rope, spooked at everything (even her own foal), and I was told to have her shot because she was so dangerous and beyond help. It took me a few months, but I got her to a point where I could hop on her bare back and stand on her back and swing a rope or cover her in tarps. Mirage became quiet and so trusting that even 4 year old kids rode her and I rode her with just a rope around her neck. She is now in Devon, AB area trail riding with a lady and her daughter.

Sport was rescued from a lady who claimed to have a "breeding" operation by Evansburg. What it really was, was a bunch of unhandled horses running together and breeding. She had no idea how many horses she had and even had 2 wild herds that nobody could get near because the stallions were so aggressive. She even found dead foals that she didn't know were even born. Many horses were malnourished and very wormy, he was one of them. And he was never halter broke, never had his feet done or even brushed. In less than a month, he went from being unhandled, to halter broke, tied, loaded, picked up his feet, parking out and loved being pet. He is now a lucky boy, getting to breed to some lovely TWHBEA mares by Niton Junction.
