Hip Shaken Mama (Spark Plug) ADOPTED!

2011 Standardbred Bay Mare 14.1hh

Hip Shaken' Mama is a petite mare nicknamed 'Spark Plug'. The perfect size for a smaller rider! She enjoys trail rides and would go out all day, walking on a loose rein. She has a spring to her trot and a nice forward walk that will cover great distance. She has had lots of desensitizing and isn't very spooky with a sweet laid back disposition, but don't let her fool you, she's no dead head, just a pleasure to ride. She is sound and ready for her new home! Suitable for an intermediate rider.

2008 Hackney Pony Bay Gelding 12hh

Puck is an adorable Hackney pony that was rescued and is looking for new home! He is small and stout with the sweetest personality you could ever find. He  has had some bad history but is learning to trust people and feel safe with them. We have been doing extensive desensitizing with Puck and he rides under saddle but is suited for a more confident rider. We were told that he drives. Check out videos on our facebook page! Puck is pictured on the left.

Raven is one of the sweetest mares you will meet, with lots of personality and play in her but boy does she enjoy working too! She rides and isn't real spooky but it still rather green.
