Reins in Motion Horses

The High Horse
by Patti Hall

A strongman told me ages ago about a horse and a child and a long way to go.

From a hospital bed and a wheelchair for wings to a four footed hero with a heart made of dreams.

It is said that this horse talks although not with words, if you listen more closely with your heart and no spurs heíll sing you his story with no ego or glory.

Ride with me, ride strongly, ride freely, ride boldly, trust my hooves and my heart, youíre never alone.

For its freedom heart beating, you walk proud on your own, you build strength on my back
thatís my one and only goal.

Now some people say this isnít the way but they donít know the answer, you heal when I canter.

For itís not just the riding, itís not just the flying, with four feet flowing and gliding they hold you up higher.

Together we get there, together we ride, together we can do it and youíll get there with pride.

For as much as you love the joy of the ride, a job such as this is the highest of high.

I am a high horse, I am a kind ride, on the reins you hold light, on my feet we can fly.

All day, thru the night come ride with me now, leave your wheelchair behind come fly with me now
and youíll get there with pride.

A strongman told me ages ago about a horse and a child and a long way to go.

 

Our Team of High Horses

Moonie


Moonie is our 16 yr old black and white paint mare.

She has an amazing way of calming students down who may be apprehensive around horses. She drops her head down, looks in their eyes, and instantly there is a connection between horse and rider.












Summer

Summer is our beautiful Palomino diva! She is half Arabian and half Quarter Horse.

Summer is very intuitive and smart. She knows as soon as a rider sits on her back exactly how she should behave, whether it is to walk very slowly or adjust her body back and forth to help balance the rider. She is amazing at reading the clients inner feelings and letting us instructors know what is going on from the inside out. One must be willing to listen to what she is saying. She needs her clothes fitting properly and is picky about her riding cues.


Mz T

Mz T is our 16yr old red and white quarter horse paint.

She is our most challenging horse to ride and will test our independent riders skills. She is determined to make one work very hard to get the correct response from her.













Chance

Chance is our ďsillyĒ boy. He is a very handsome Bay in color, half Morgan and half Quarter Horse.

Chance is very, very playful and funny. Given the opportunity he will knock over barrels, poles and cones just to make students laugh. One of our clientsí says that ďChance brings our her silly side and makes me laugh.Ē He is also fond of playing horse soccer. Chance is our driving horse and took to it like heíd always done it. He loves when the driving clothes go on his back on Fridayís. His Morgan personality and frame emerges and is so light and floaty as he pulls the cart all over the ranch.


Sir Harry

Harry is the newest addition to our team. He is our 10 yr old Halflinger.

Harry came to us a few months ago and settled in to our program very quickly. He is a natural for his new job. Students love grooming him and braiding his beautiful mane. We are looking forward to getting him trained to drive and pulling our cart for our driving program.













Freeway

Freeway is our token Mini. Just donít tell him that he is little!

He is determined to keep up with the big ones. He is full of life and gives the kids a run for their money. Besides being used for leading activities, Freeway is part of our driving program. When heís not used for the program Freeway can be seen with Mr. Walt and Miss Marilyn and Tango, the Morgan, driving all over the ranch and down along our grape trail.








Patty

Smiling Patty comes to visit Reins In Motion several times throughout the year. She is a Belgian and loves to pull the wagon at Camp Arroyo and other special events.
