Our Horses

 

Homer / Show Name: Dreams Come True

14 year old Paint cross gelding

14.3hh

Roxy / Show Name: Roxanne

11 year old Dutch WB cross mare

16hh

Roxy is one of the quietest horses we have at Todd Hill Farm. She is a real confidence builder for timid riders. She can be on the lazy side, but that's part of her appeal! Roxy has shown low level dressage and can also jump up to 2'. She loves to go on trail rides and is completely bomb-proof.

Dezi / Show Name: Desibeau

13 year old Paint gelding

15.1hh

Dezi was started Western and has recently switched to English.  He is still learning how to be an “English” horse, so requires a patient rider with a sense of humour!  Dezi has lots of experience in and out of the ring and loves the trails.  He is learning to jump and so far seems to be very willing and quite athletic.  Dezi is safe enough for beginners but talented enough to challenge our more advanced riders too.  Don’t let his height fool you!  He has a big barrel and will fit all sizes of riders.

Parker / Show Name: Lincoln Park

​13 year old Hanoverian gelding

Bay, 16hh

Parker is Karen Gillighan's personal mount.  He had a great career as a hunter/jumper in Ontario and is now starting a new career as a dressage horse!  His floaty trot, lovely conformation and natural rhythm make him a head-turner wherever he goes. Parker is not currently being used in lessons.

Envy / Show Name: Evermore

17 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.

16 year old

Percheron/Paint

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 three sizes of grey horses! 

Molly / Show Name: Molly's Game

11 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 she 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.

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!

Capri is a lovely, floaty mover who loves to jump.  She is quiet enough for even our most timid riders.

Chloe / Shiow Name: Kiss & Tell

21 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 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 into our routines quickly and is now one 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

16 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.

21 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 to 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!
