When we put out a call on our social media pages for photos to fill galleries, we are usually overwhelmed by the response we get – and we can’t fit always them into the weekly galleries within the month they’ve been posted for. We’ve gone back though and compiled this gallery of photos we missed when they were first submitted!

I thought he deserved to be recognized here. This is Hortelano, a 29 year old CDE stallion owned and loved by Mary Anne Mcphail. One of the most special hordes I have had the privilege and honor to ride and care for 🤍 – Carmen F.
Xena Kismet – 23 yo Friesian mare. Broke her pelvis at 10 months of age, but together we still went all the way to PSG and won our silver medal together. She also gave me an awesome colt. After retirement she briefly became a lesson horse for aspiring dressage riders until her hip said no more. She is still the princess in the barn and rules the rest of the horses with a no nonsense attitude! – Ashley S.

Missed this, but here’s my Goldwyn, a 22 year old Westphalian gelding. He enjoys semi-retirement, doing lessons for the little kids since I’ve outgrown him, and the occasional show, where he marches right on up the trailer as he still is a horse show star and loves doing what he does! Here’s to many more years buddy 🥰 – Driftwood Stable, LLC
I love my AQHA boy! He has also transitioned to dressage from western pleasure. He is a joy to ride and just be around. – Lisa H.
