We have had several new equines join our Green Gate Equine Services family over the last few months! Finally getting around to officially welcoming them all!
First we had Chester join us back in July from Richmond, Va. Chester Is owned by trainer, Paetra Ritter, and is used as an advanced lesson horse and he is half leased to Emma Cassat. Chester stands just 14.3 hands, just barely squeaking over the pony status. He's 9 years old and is an Arabian gelding! This guy LOVES to jump and is on his way to becoming a nice little jumper or 3-day horse one day!
Next we had Domingo arrive with his owner Jay Kennedy! Jay rescued Domingo almost a full year ago now from the track after Domingo had a fracture injury from the track and a terrible case of ulcers! Jay had footed the bill for Domingo to get put on some high end ulcer medication that the rescue organization couldn't afford, after working with Domingo and spending time with him while he recovered Jay fell in love with him and adopted him! Domingo and Jay moved to Mountainview Horse Farm together back in the beginning of September and since the move Domingo has calmed down so much more! When Domingo first arrived he was a severe stall weaver, he was pushy and would walk all over people. After a month of a consistent routine and ground work he has settled in and is such a nice horse to work around now! After an all clear x-ray recheck on his fracture from the vet, Domingo was put back under saddle for the first time in almost a year just last week! Now in a re-training program here at GGES, we look forward to seeing Domingo and Jay learn together!
Tootsie arrived just a couple weeks ago from New Jersey! She is the newest member of the lesson program here at Green Gate Equine Services. Tootsie is an 18 year old Arabian mare who has joined our team as a beginner/intermediate lesson horse! She's SUCH a sweetie and is quickly becoming a favorite for some of the students! We look forward to keeping her a part of the family as GGES is to be her forever home!
Memphis moved in from eastern Pennsylvania just a couple weeks ago! His owner, Laura McTear attends Shippensburg University and we are so excited to have this pair join us! Memphis is a Thoroughbred who Laura has been piloting around the jumpers for a couple years now! After an injury back in July Memphis spent the last few months recovering and now he's ready to slowly start back to work and get back into the jumper ring with his mom! We look forward to watching this pair get back into it!
Spencer is the most recent addition to the farm! Kristin Miller is his owner and she decided to bring him back to Mountainview after he had been away on lease for the last year and a half in Maryland. Spencer is a medium Cleveland Bay pony, such a sweet guy and so talented at just 4 years old! This guy is just adorable and we are thrilled that Kristin decided to bring him to us! He is available for half lease! Please check out the sales/lease page soon for more information on him!
