Down in the Holler

16hh, 2014 OTTB Gelding


"Oscar" is our resident old soul who's worth his weight in gold.  He has a super sweet, affectionate personality and loves cuddles and cookies.  Most suited to a kid, teen or small adult to shower him in love and dabble in little bit of everything under saddle.  We've been using him here and there in our beginner lesson program, but recently he's been on the back burner. He packs around kids, beginner adults, even husbands and boyfriends. Like the true saint that he is, you could pull him out of the field after a month off and he's the same ride as when he's in work 5 days a week. He's got three nice gaits, jumps crossrails and 18" courses (with scope for more), hacks out alone or in a group, does well riding out in the open, etc. In the video below you'll see him in lessons with riders of various level (including those barn boyfriends). Contact for more info!


Emilee Engle
Emilee joined the team in November 2019, and is our indispensable groom extraordinaire.  During the week she is very dedicated to ensuring all of the horses are properly turned out for every ride and that barn cleanliness is up to standard.  On weekends she travels to events with us and keeps everyone looking their best and rides running like clockwork.  Emilee followed in her mother's footsteps and developed her love of horses at a very young age. After leasing a few horses and taking lessons at multiple barns, she got her own horse when she was eight years old, with whom she has been training and competing with for almost twelve years. While Emilee's main passion lies within the hunter/jumper discipline she has additionally competed in eventing and dressage and has rated up to a C2-HB within the United States Pony Club. Emilee is also a part-time college student and is working towards gaining a degree in Exercise Science and/or Kinesiology.
