Kim & Heavenly Magic
Heavenly Magic: 12-Year-Old Chestnut Saddlebred Mare
Sain Equine & Juliet
Juliet: 6-Year-Old Bay/White Quarter Horse Cross Mare
Roxanne & Polly/Freckles
POLLY: 15-Year-Old Bay Arabian Mare
FRECKLES: 8-year old bay/white Saddlebred Mare
Roxanne started riding when she was in her mother’s womb. After years of growing up trail riding, team penning and barrel racing, she eventually joined 4-H and High School Equestrian. She fell in love with being able to ride in any discipline the horse enjoyed rather than only one thing she personally enjoyed. After graduation, she continued to show and started training and exercising horses for other people. Her philosophy is about truly understanding and communicating with each individual horse and helping their owners do the same. To her, riding isn't about just getting on a horse, it's about being a teammate and sharing the journey together.
Briana and Taylor Thomas & Water Colors
WATER COLORS: 12-year old bay/white Saddlebred Mare
Taylor Thomas is 13 years old and has grown up in the barn. She began showing at the age of 4 in lead line classes at Pinto and Buckskin shows and started showing at breed shows on her own at 5 years. Taylor has also been helping her mom with ponies in training for years. She loves riding ponies even though her legs are starting to get too long. Taylor has shown in multiple disciplines at many different association and local shows over the years. From cart driving her mini Monte, to eventing on her pony Luke to getting her own thoroughbred project mare Phoenix, who has taught her to be very patient and how to think outside the box. Taylor believes that spending lots of time with her horses can really help them become quiet, confident, and loving partners.
Josh & Rebel
REBEL: 18-year Chestnut Saddlebred Mare
Josh grew up on a family farm that bred Arabians. He was always drawn more towards training and helping out troubled horses rather than breeding. So when he graduated high school he immediately moved to Montana to work with a trainer. The beginning of his career was focused mostly on training Arabian horses. He has since branched out and has worked with pretty much any breed and in every discipline. Josh blends a mix of training techniques, but his program is rooted in natural horsemanship. He currently runs his own training program, Shambaugh Equine, out of Triscoli Farms.
Mikenna & Scarlet
SCARLET: 6-year-old Chestnut Quarter Horse Cross Mare
Mikenna is a trainer at Three Beat Farms in Oregon City. She has a degree in Equine Science and Management and has been riding for 20 years. Previously, she was the assistant manager at the Lake Oswego Hunt Club and helped run the riding academy there. Her riding/training background covers multiple disciplines spanning from working stock horse to jumping. She currently trains, runs a lesson program, and works closely with youth organizations such as 4H, OHSET and IEA.
