Meet our school horses

All our school horses have at least one day off and are worked by a trainer at least once a week. This keeps them on the aids and helps maintain their skills. This will keep them working effortlessly learning the feel of dressage movements such as: a shoulder-in, half-pass, travers, renvers, leg yield and other advanced movements. Classical Dressage Training allows us to do this by creating and maintaining enough muscle on the horse so that teaching is easier for them. We train their mind by moving their body through a specific set of exercises. Dressage preserves and prolongs the soundness of the horse. Because everyone deserves to have the pleasure of riding a well trained, well balanced horse and every horse should have the privileged of being well taken care of.

  • Halflinger

Aviators Gold

I am a barn favorite with my gorgeous mane and tale. I am a registered Halflinger that was lucky enough to find their way to Texas from Amish country. I am also very talented, quick learner and can teach you how to ride dressage. I am now showing third level and am working on 4th level movements. I am very versatile as I can do flat work, cavaletti work as well as some (small) jumps. I am not very tall but I am very flexible and supple! I love to go on trail rides as long as I get to go first! When riding me, I like soft hands and someone that looks where they are going so I know where to go. Anyone with a treat is my immediate friend (though I will give everyone a nice nuzzle!). People say I am sweet and have a very good sense of humor. My nick name is golden tatter :) I am only available for advanced riders because when bored I find other things to do.

Rudy

My name is Rudy and I am half Percheron and half Andalusian gelding. I have been at White Fences for about two years now and have gone to a couple of rated shows. While I am a rock star, a good listener, great trailer loader, stand for farrier and vet, I need a more advanced rider to work with. I am sensitive (Andalusian part of me) and I do love to teach students how to do dressage but I need the right dancing partner. I love do do cavaletti work, trail rides and can jump. I am big and strong but don't let my size fool you. I have a heart of gold and my trot is so smooth!! I also know a few tricks. I can lay down and sit like a dog :) Also if you want to be best friends with me I love German Stud Muffins.

Voo

Distinguished gentleman, trained to third level Dressage, extensive show record and that extra flash to wow the judges. That's how I would best describe myself. I am a very patient, quiet teacher. Gentle and kind, no one can resist my large, soft brown eyes! When I am ridden, they love my personality and smooth walk, trot and canter. I have terrible allergies and have successfully finished my treatment. Now my mane and tail are growing back. I have heard some riders call me an elephant because my tail is so short right now, but don't be fooled! It will be back in it's full glory in no time.

I have it all! Sophisticated. Bay. Tall. I can jump. I can do dressage and hunt seat. A little slow in the warm up and I can be lazy over the tiny jumps but then my motor gets going and you are in for some fun! Kids and grownups love me. I think it is funny to walk in from the pasture really slowly, kind of to test you to see how much you really want to ride! Love bubble bathes and to be doted on. My favorite treat? Hmm, let’s keep trying them all!

I have been focusing on my mane and tail….Oh yeah! I am a pony with attitude! Wait to you see me in action! I have a huge white blaze, (some call it bald) and I have quite the head of hair! You should see my mane! Then walk around and check out my tail! Woohoo! Need an experienced, small rider that wants to have fun. I can jump and dressage!! I can do it all!!

Heartbreaker - Sold to a wonderful client!

Two words that describe me – Easy Keeper!! Master at leading trail rides and teaching beginner riders! I have been described as a chestnut TellyTubby because I am chestnut, short and stocky (muscled!). No matter what I am doing in the pasture, I will ALWAYS come to say hi and ask politely if you have a treat or want to give me a scratch! I look GREAT in a western and english saddle and I keep an eye out for any wildlife on the trail and the ring to keep you safe. I have done trail competitions, so nothing really bothers me. In the summer I really like getting hosed off after a ride.

Charlie Brown - Sold to a wonderful client!

Everyone knows I am one of the best at trail rides, teaching lessons and summer camp. You bet! My favorite thing is to find yummy grass to snatch while at work. I have to admit, I have been known to even eat bluebonnets (is that wrong?). I’m a bay with black mane and tail and look very dapper in my western and english gear. I am working on my dressage moves and I am coming along nicely. I look forward to being able to teach beginner dressage students!

Tucker

Tucker is a little guy with a big attitude. He is the boss horse in the pasture, can do first level dressage and take you out for a trail ride. Tucker is part halflinger so he has a beautiful flowing mane that is so big it sometimes prevents him from seeing! We have to make sure that he is always braided. Tucker is kind, gentle and patient!!

Copper

Guess what color I am?! Yep! Copper! My best friend is Charlie Brown and we always go on trail rides together. I don’t like to eat as much on the trail like my bud CB, but I like to take people out through the Texas woods. You will be glad to know that jaguars no longer roam these woods, I know that I am! My favorite thing on the trail? Besides CB? Getting to see the seasonal changes, the Texas flowers, prickly pears, dew berries (yeah, I have a sensitive side inside my manly exterior). I am also being trained to learn classical dressage and I'm a super fast learner. I can do shoulder-in and am comfortable on long lines, side reins and lunging!!

Fritz

I am a laid back kinda guy that takes all things in stride. I can teach an adult, a child, go on a trail ride, load a trailer and go to a show and nothing really impacts me. I do try my best with every lesson I teach and I have a smooth trot.
