show and pony club participant, Nick is our go-to team member.
He has a big horse persona in a pony size body. He takes no

line allowing many of our independent riders to

Freddie is a small quarter horse that came to us from Arizona as a former reiner.  A bit of a clown who likes to  untie himself and take off. He picks up almost anything in his mouth to carry around. He is a fun entertainer but once work starts he is all business. He and his horse buddy Cody who is similar in markings and color, enjoy hanging out together.
