Scout

Donor: Holly robinson
birthday: 10/15/2004

Scout joined the PALS herd following a career as a lesson horse for a local community member. Always willing, Scout was a great mount for children and beginners who needed a steady partner to show them the way. Scout enjoys a challenge, carrying riders who need more support, but also enjoys trotting around the arena with more independent riders.

squeak

donor: ernest fritsch
birthday: 01/01/1997

Squeak is a palomino Halflinger/Arabian cross. With the calm demeanor of a draft horse and small stature of a pony (13 hand high), Squeak is ideal for the younger equestrians at PALS. He came here with his brother Bubbles after retiring from pulling carts and sleighs. His noticeable white “eyebrows” are the one feature that sets him apart from Bubbles. While Squeak may approach each new person cautiously, once he gets to know you he is very friendly.

Tank (formerly Tanaquah) is a red roan Quarter Horse gelding. He started his training as a cutting horse; however, he grew much bigger than the ideal size for cutters, so he moved on to a different discipline. He was trained in dressage next and also served as a horse for trail riding. Tank’s calm demeanor and sweet personality make him a good fit for our therapeutic programs!

STAR

owner: christa arthur
birthday: 03/17/2007

Standing at just 55 inches tall, Star is one of the shortest riding horses at PALS. Her big personality and loud neighing definitely make up for her smaller size. Star has experience in being shown in 4H and contesting. Her sassy but sweet attitude makes her a good fit for younger, more advanced beginners wanting to challenge their skills. Star loves food and will eat almost any treat you put in front of her. Fun fact: Star was breed tested and she has Arabian, Missouri Fox Trotter, and Turkoman roots!
