Krystal, at KFCEE, provides great training horses for lessons and therapy. For Example:
Taylor, “A Detail to Remember,” is a 8 year old Appendix gelding by a son of Last Detail. Was rescued as a 2 year old. He has shown in Quarter Horse, open and 4-H shows. He is the “tattle tale” for lessons as he does not do what is asked unless asked correctly. He is a large part of the EAP.
Sid, “Mr Breezy Jr,” is a 19 year old ranch horse and roping Quarter Horse gelding. Right now he just does some roping around the arena. He is great with a lot of babysitting, lessons, and therapy.
Amigo, 10 year old gelding. Mostly a rope horse, but also does therapy
Grace, 4 year old mare. Was rescued from an abusive situation. Still not trained to ride, but learning how to trust.
Dusty, 11 year old gelding. “On loan” from some terrific girls. He is a large part of lessons and therapy.
