Rusty

Rusty our sweet ol' sorrel, comes to us as a rescue from Eldorado County Animal Control. We don't know much about his history, but he is an older gentleman that is perfect for beginners and small children. Although we do not use him for riding anymore, he loves the attention during ground skills…… and finger painting!

Nadie,is our little mini mare that came to us as a rescue. She is a doll and, yes, Toby’s mommy too! She is not ridden, but is an important part of our ground skills team. She loves "dress-up" with the little girls who braid her mane and tail.
