Leo can always be seen at Ranchlands with Maggie by his side, he is absolutely in love with her and doesn’t go anywhere without her. He is very reactive to his rider and can be wonderful with complete beginners, but on the other hand, will go flat-out back to the other horses with capable riders. Very challenging

Brown Mare with Blaze

Moose is an off the track Thoroughbred, as she was too big and heavy to race. You can find Moose by the side of Lizzie, as she learns the ropes to become Alpha Mare. If you observe long enough, you can see her bossing the herd but still respects Lizzie. Moose is very popular with riders as she has a beautiful, smooth stride, but don’t let her size intimidate you, we have had some of our smaller riders show her how it’s done in the arena.
