Breezy’s Story

In 2000, after Regina’s first horse was ready for retirement, she purchased Breezy as her next show horse. Prior to Regina purchasing her, Breezy had started her training, but was primarily used for trail riding and parades. After a season of training, Breezy started her local showing career with Regina in the county 4H program. In their first year showing together, they received Grand Champion High Point in their division at the county fair and went on to the Ohio State Fair, where they finished in the Top 5 in Hunter Hack. Over their next two years showing together, they competed primarily in dressage and hunters, but also dabbled in many other events, including competitive trail riding, showmanship, cross country jumping, and gymkhana events.

In the spring of 2002, Breezy foaled a lovely palomino filly, Jewel, who years later, now joins Breezy as a member of our program at Haile Equestrian. From 2002 to 2004, Breezy had an easy couple years of being a pasture potato while Regina moved to Colorado for college. Upon Regina’s graduation, she relocated to Gainesville, Florida for graduate school, this time with Breezy and her daughter Jewel in tow. The first year in Florida Breezy enjoyed trail riding and occasional cross country schooling, and with Regina busy with school, Breezy began sharing her time with partial lessees. When Regina opened her own farm in Gainesville, Breezy was the foundation horse in the leasing program. Over her years in Gainesville, Breezy has taught countless riders (young and old) the basics of riding, yet still provides an athletic, confident mount to jump around a course of jumps. She has shown dressage with great scores, up to second level. She loves to school cross country and jump around the arena. She's great out on the trails and loves to travel - you've never seen her walk faster than when she's pointed at an open horse trailer door. She is one of the most versatile horses on the farm, safe enough for a first time rider, yet fun and exciting for more advanced students to learn something new on every week.
