Horses

No equestrian team is complete without the horses. Here is a list of our team horses along with their bios.

Name: Cora
Breed:
Quarter horse
Height: 16 hh
Age: 3
Owner: Isabella Hrupek

Name: Delilah
Sex: Mare
Height: 15.2 hh
Breed: Andalusian X
Age: 13
Owner: Fieldstone Farm

Delilah is one of the best over fences horses in our program, jumping confidently up to 2’6”. She is brave and honest to jumps, but remains challenging to all levels of riders. A typical mare, she is smart and opinionated, but can be easily bought off with plenty of treats before a ride.

Name: DeMarco
Breed: Draft X
Height: 15.2 hh
Age: 18
Owner: Fieldstone Farm

DeMarco is an easygoing guy whose favorite lesson group is walk-trot. Although he will step up his game for more advanced riders, DeMarco is a great teacher for our more novice ride groups because he is steady and honest.

Name: Emma
Sex: Mare
Height: 17.0 hh
Breed: Holsteiner
Age: 19
Owner: Fieldstone Farm

Emma is a retired show hunter and 3rd level dressage horse currently on loan to the Fieldstone Farm lesson program. She is full of personality in the barn, and one of the easiest rides in the ring. Emma is a pro at teaching riders flying changes.

Name: Peanut (Liviette)
Sex: Mare
Height: 15 hh
Breed: Swedish Warmblood
Age: 30
Owner: Fieldstone Farm

Peanut is amazing under saddle, allowing riders to focus solely on their equitation while she takes care of the hard stuff. Although she can be sassy in the barn, she is solid and steady in the ring, and is the go-to horse for riders learning to canter.

Name: Pierre
Sex: Gelding
Height: 14.1 hh
Breed: Welsh Cob
Age: 30
Owner: Fieldstone Farm

Pierre, also known as P.P. (for practically perfect!) is an energetic little guy who doesn’t know his age. P.P.’s sweet personality and gentle, forgiving nature make him the perfect mount for beginner riders. And who can resist his floppy ears? Coach Sam’s preschooler is happy to share “her horse Peepers” with the team.

Name:Rolo
Breed:
Welsh Cob
Height: 14 hh
Age: 5
Owned by: Fieldstone Farm

Rolo is the youngest horse currently used in team practices. He offers a safe, easy trot for our most beginner riders, and challenges our more advanced team members with a little sass in his canter. He has also been started over fences in our jump practices. Rolo is always happy to be part of practice because he loves all the attention and treats he gets from the team!

Name: Zilver – “Heza Zilverlining”
Breed: Arabian
Height: 14.2 hh
Age: 15
Owner: Fieldstone Farm

Zilver is a very important part of our team. He goes in all lesson levels both on the flat and over fences and is very patient with rider errors. Zilver has competed through first level dressage and over fences up to 2’6”. His favorite things are scratches on his chest, and playing with his best buddy, Hobbes.
