Katie is a therapeutic riding horse that dabbles in dressage.  She has a beautiful flowing mane and white feathers (long hairs around her ankles) to match.  Many say that the marking on her left shoulder looks like North America. 
 

Lyra
DOB: 2012
Color: Paint

Lyra is a young girl with lots of heart and patience.  Her mane is so long that when it isn’t braided, it hangs almost to her knees!  This girl is a true Gypsy Vanner with lots of hair.  Be warned that Lyra loves to lick and put things in her mouth, so you may come away from her covered in horse slobber- luckily, most people don’t mind!

Mac, short for Macaroni, is a gentle soul who is very curious and loves to be involved in all of the activity around him.  He has a smooth trot and loves to go on trails.   He is the most recent addition to the FFT herd and is loving all of the attention and activity.

Support Romeo in Retirement

Romeo - retired in 2015
DOB: 1998
Color: Chestnut
Breed: Quarter Horse
Romeo made us all laugh with his playfulness - he always wanted to play with the toys before the students.  He was a successful reining horse for many years with his previous owner and he is now enjoying his time in the field of Virginia.  He was great at teaching our more advanced students to post and ride independently.  His coat shimmers like copper when he stands in the sunshine.  He is very friendly and will often nicker when called.
