June 2017 - Holly has returned to GSH as she wasn't the right fit for her adoptive home.

Additionally, her adopter's work schedule has increased and he just wasn't home often[...]

Height: 14.2 hh

Noelle is pretty easy to catch and halter, but is showing some stubborness with leading, but is working on it. Noelle now leads, ties, accepts a saddle, has been ponied on trail rides and has had a rider on her back. She's beautiful in person - the pictures do not do her justice. Just like the other girls from this group, the more she's worked[...]

Height: 15ish hh
Training Level:
Halter Broke
Suitability:
Unrestricted Riding

William is a 10-12-year-old beautiful gelding that came from a broker program in Minnesota with limited background information.

We had[...]

Height: 16+ hh
Training Level:
Green Broke
Suitability:
Unrestricted Riding

Mason is our lovely huge QH! As we've worked with him, he definitely knows a lot. He is broke to ride, but definitely green. We are comfortable putting adult re-riders/beginners on him in the round pen at the walk and even trot, and intermediate to advanced riders have no problems with him. He's happier right now with a more confident rider. We[...]
