Our Horses

 

Envy

She Name: Evermore

16 year old 

Registered TB mare

Bay

Envy has found a forever home at Todd Hill Farm..  She came to Nova Scotia as a 5 year old from a hunter farm in Ontario, where she had come off the racetrack and been retrained for the hunter ring.  The young girl who bought her showed her at local hunter / jumper shows, but then went off to school so Envy didn't have a "job" and was out in the field for a few years.  Anyone who knows Envy knows that she loves people and loves to work!  When we found out about her, we made an offer and showed up with the trailer.  She came out of the field and walked right on.  We took a leap of faith because we didn't even ride her first!  Some things just feel right.

Envy took a few weeks to settle in but now she's as chill as a cucumber!  She loves her job here at Todd Hill and has excelled in the hunter ring and placed very well against some stiff competition! Envy is a sweetheart in the barn, in the ring and also on the trails.

ELLA - FOR SALE

Show name: Isabella de Lully

8 year old

Canadian Warmblood (Oldenburg)

She is a 16.3hh, 8 year old registered Canadian Warmblood. She has lovely big movement, is honest to her fences and very willing to learn.  Ella is still a big green over fences but is simple to ride and she has such a great attitude. 

Amira

Show name: Skyfall

20 year old

Sport Horse

15.3hh

Amira is a full-bodied Sport Horse mare that has truly "been there, done that!"  She has had a long and very successful show career in the hunter ring in multiple provinces.  Amira loves to please and can babysit a timid youngster or adult, or just as easily step into the hunter ring and win ribbons.  She never puts a foot out of place!

 

Amira is our newest addition to Todd Hill Farm!  Come say hello! 

Friday

Show name: Finally Friday

16 year old

Percheron/Paint

15hh

Friday is a great addition to our school. He loves to jump and is already making friends. Friday used to be at Todd Hill so some of our older riders might recognize him. Now that he is with us we have four sizes of grey horses! 

Molly

Show name: Molly's Game

9 year old Thoroughbred mare

Bay, 16hh

Molly was bred in New Jersey to be a race horse but was too slow for the track!  Thank goodness, because is is an awesome hunter/jumper horse.  She is steady to the fences and is as honest as the day is long.   Molly had an injury to her mouth several years ago, so she can be sensitive to contact.  She prefers a rider with light hands.  She loves attention and has impeccable manners.  

Show Name: Appleton

4 year old Canadian WB gelding

Red Bay, 17hh

Toby is Cory's brother and Finnegan's nephew!  He is by the well-known NS stallion One Night Stand (Russian WB cross).  He is a big goof!  He's lanky and sometimes unbalanced as he is currently experiencing a growth spurt!  We expect he will finish around 17.1hh.  Toby has been under saddle for 6 months.

This guy is  a delight to work with.  He is dead quiet with "thick skin" and a laid back attitude.  The perfect amateur mount!

He is destined for the hunter, jumper or dressage ring!

Sophie

Show Name: Blush Balou

4 year old Oldenburg mare 

Chestnut, 15.2hh

Sophie is by Bon Balou out of Love Letter.  She has classic conformation, stunning movement and a great attitude!  She has been under saddle just 2 months now but acts and rides like a much older horse.  She currently stands 15.2hh and should finish at 16hh.  

Sophie is very easy to work with and a super fast learner.  She is currently showing in the green hunter ring and is consistently in the high ribbons.  We are very proud of her!

Barney

Show Name: Anchor Man

19 year old registered solid Paint Horse gelding

Chestnut, 15.2hh  

Barney is a solid citizen that really does it all!  He was originally trained western and knows some pretty fancy reining moves!  But he also goes English and loves to jump! He is a gentleman on the trails and has a laid-back, easygoing nature.  He loved kids!

Capri

Show Name: Calendar Girl

18 year old Oldenburg mare

Chestnut, 16.3hh

Capri came to Todd Hill Farm as a weanling and was trained and shown by Karen and her students until the age of 7.  She was then sold to Ontario as a Junior Jumper.  She was re-sold twice more and when Karen noticed a for sale ad for her she jumped at the opportunity to buy her back!  10 years later!  

Capri is a lovely, floaty mover who loves to jump.  She and her ride Kathryn were 2018 Horses At Work Champions in 2'6" - 2'9" divisions! She is quiet enough for even our most timid riders.

..

Lhassa

Show Name: French Affair

19 year old Selle Francais mare

Chestnut, 16.1hh

Lhassa has had a very successful show carer in the dressage and jumper ring.  She knows her job, is relaxed and happy to do it and is quiet enough for our beginner students to learn on.  This lovely mare came to us from Quebec, as her owners were thrilled that she would have a forever home at Todd Hill Farm.  

Jewel

Show Name: Hidden Gem

16 year old Welsh mare

Grey, 13hh

 

Jewel is exactly that - a real gem.  She is the perfect size for our beginner riders, and she is quiet and kind too!  Jewel has quite a show history!  She competed on the "A" circuit in the Small Pony Hunter ring and was actually bred and born in the US.  She is a registered Welsh pony.  Her coat is much lighter now than in this picture - she is almost white - and very hard to keep clean!

Jewel is available for lease

Fletcher

Show Name: Far Fetched

19 year old Newfoundland/Quarter Horse gelding

Black, 14.1hh

Fletcher came to us from Newfoundland - by boat!  He is one of a kind!  He has shown in all Pony Club events including eventing and dressage.  He is the perfect "babysitter" but is stocky enough to carry larger riders to.  This guys knows his job and loves to please.  

Fletcher is available for lease

Finn

Show Name: Finnegan

21 year old Hannoverian cross gelding 

Bay, 16hh

Finnegan is the perfect gentleman!  He showed for years in Adult Amateur, Equitation and Children's Hunter divisions.  He took Robyn Gillighan to the prestigious Royal Winter Fair in Ontario in 2012.  We have owned Finn since he was 2 years old and are very proud of him! He has become one of our beginner favourites as he has such a kind heart and really looks after his rider.

Chloe

Show Name: Kiss & Tell

20 year old Sport Horse (Morgan/TB) mare

Chestnut, 15.2hh

Chloe has shown in Hunter, Jumper and Eventing. She loves to jump but is also beginner-safe.  Chloe loves to go on on the trails and is also completely traffic-proof.  She has the distinct honour of being Todd Hill's very first lesson horse!  When she arrived, she was hot and forward, but she settled in to our routines quickly and is now on of the easiest, most uncomplicated horses here.  Chloe loves people but does not feel the same about other horses so for this reason, we don't walk horses close behind her or beside her under saddle or when leading. 

Carter

Show Name: Sunnyside Up

15 year old Welsh/Belgian pony gelding

Palomino, 14hh

Carter's breed combination says it all!  He is 1/2 Welsh pony and 1/2 Belgian draft horse - short, stocky and strong with lots of personality! He often tries to get his way on the ground but under saddle he knows his job and does it well.  Carter was started as a dressage pony and then moved into the hunter world.  He has lots of show experience and beautiful form over fences.   

Cutter

Show Name: Cool Blue Cutter

11 year old Quarter Horse gelding

Bay, 15.2hh

Cutter is the new barn favourite!  He has lots of show experience in the hunter ring and has lots to teach our riders young and old.  Cutter is laid back and loves to please.  He has great barn manners, is very well trained and is a real confidence builder.  Everyone who meets Cutter falls in love :-)

Cheeko

Show Name: Leap of Faith

19 year old Appaloosa/Arab gelding

Grey, 15.3hh

Cheeko has been there, done that and has a few t-shirts to prove it!  He is Parelli-trained and loves attention.  He is beginner-safe but also has the training and knows his job with more advanced riders.  He has done Pony Club, hunter and jumper horse, clinics, trail riding and even beach rides at his old home in PEI!  He is known for his super-bouncy trot. It's hard to sit to but certainly teaches our riders balance!

Leo

Show Name: Todd Hill's Lionheart

9 year old American Sport Pony (Connemara/Arab) gelding

Chestnut, 14.1hh

Leo was born here on the Farm.  When we bought his mother - a registered Connemara from Alberta - we didn't know she was in foal!  He was a surprise baby!  Leo is a very talented pony and could go all the way in the hunter ring. He has been to several shows and the judges love his look.  At home, he can be on the lazy side so is a good beginner mount too.

 

Leo is a lovely hunter-type pony and has been showing in the 2'6" ring.  

Leo is available for lease

Jessie

Show Name: Queen of Spades

19 year old Clyde/TB Mare

Bay, 16.2hh

Jessie is a kind, sweetheart of a horse. She is suitable for beginners, timid adults and also keen riders who want to show and jump. Jessie was purchased from a dressage stable so she has great flat-work.  She also used to event and now at Todd Hill has proven top be very reliable in the hunter ring.  She is fun to ride with very smooth gaits.  In fact it has been said that you can hold a class of water while sitting her trot and it won't spill!

12 year old Appaloosa/Welsh mare

Red roan/appaloosa 14.2hh

Ollie is Robyn Gillighan's horse so he is not currently used in lessons.  She is schooling him in dressage and over fences.  He has shown at Gold Shows in the 3'; Hunter Ring but has sinus surgery at UPEI last year so has had some time off.  It is a joy to watch Robyn and Ollie together as they have a real partnership!  

Luke

Show Name: Skywalker

15 year old Quarter Horse gelding

Chestnut, 16hh

Luke started his career as a western horse and switched to english a few years ago.  He has taken to it like a duck to water!  Luke showed for a few years in the hunter ring in Ontario before coming to Todd Hill Farm.  He is a joy to have around the barn and loves to please under saddle.  He always pins well in flat classes with his daiy-cutter trot.
