Colby Dylan

For those who did not forget him, and those who did not have a chance to meet him.
Colby Dylan was a great Spirit pony, serving community with our Team for several years. His vision problems took him away from us, and he is back at his "mom's" care...enjoying life.
So nice to see him happy and good looking old boy :)

Volunteers needed

We need volunteers, at AM hours to help at the field and PM to help at lesson time, too. 
Share this to help us reach more people willing to spend some time around horses, kids and at the Frying Pan Farm Park :)
Lot of great Spirit people left to college - Spirit is ready for new generation committed horseman people.
Possible some riding time and training for those who want to come more often and stay longer, too.
Register and contact us via

This weekend

Friday and Saturday clinic time went well...some new experience with horses.
Setting up a round pen into the Spirit field, gave us opportunity to work in different setting with Huck, Cece and Holiday today.
What a fun and powerful training for people and horses as well 
Beside it, we all did a great work getting Spirit ready for Fall season which seems to coming soon...early dark will make us do lessons indoor, so now, each horse has own tack ready for it
