Let me introduce you to Red Confetti.  She is a beautiful 12 year old Arabian mare, unregistered.    Confetti came to us a year and a half ago from a man who was going to take her to the auction.  We all know what happens to those horses.  Not all, but most end up being abused, [...]

Confetti came to us last year as a high strung Arabian mare that loved to be groomed and grazed but hated to be saddled and rode.  She tried every trick in the book to keep from having to work.  Some of her favorite tricks were to step aside quickly as you lifted the saddle on [...]

Confetti

Poor little Confetti came to us a year ago. She’s not but 14.1 hands, but what a firecracker she was at the time.   Her previous owners had thrown her out in the pasture and just completely ignored her.   A TWH trainer was going to take her to the sale,  so we bought her.  What a beauty [...]
