Cherry


Cherry Lane is a Gypsy Vanner cross, and was purchased from Washington State in 2015. She loves to look at herself in the mirror in the indoor arena... probably because she knows she is so beautiful! Gypsy Vanners are known for their long, flowing manes, tails and feathering on the lower legs. Cherry is a grey, but has faded piebalding (black spots), which is another characteristic of a Gypsy Vanner. She was born in 2007 and is 15.2 hands high.

Cisco


Cisco is another one of our Norwegian Fjords. Most Fjords are supposed to be pony sized (14.2 hands or smaller) but for some reason he just kept growing and is 15 hands high! He was born in 2002 and has been with VTRA since 2013. Cisco is goofy and playful, but slow and steady. He makes a great therapeutic horse and loves people and attention!

Joey


Joey is very sweet and sensitive mare.  She is 15 hands high and a Morgan/Arabian cross. Joey was born in 1999 and spent many years as a Western competitive trail horse, before joining VTRA in 2011. Morgan horses are used as coach horses and for harness racing and were known for their versatility. Being crossed with Arabian horses was used to improve their speed, refinement, endurance and bone strength. Arabian horses also have the ability to form a cooperative relationship with humans and are good-natured, quick to learn, and willing to please.
