Tatty’s Story

Tatty is Mr. Personality - he is a character in the barn and is a charming, sweet gelding with a great work ethic under saddle.Tatty was raised on a Haflinger farm in Ohio by his breeder. He was trained in dressage and later sold to a lady in Texas. After having Tatty for a couple years, his owner just didn’t ‘click’ with Tatty and decided to find him a home where he could have a job. Tatty came to us in the Summer of 2012 and we just adore him. He has a beautiful face and charming personality. He is often teased for his droopy lower lip as he naps in the cross ties. Tatty is always looking to catch a quick nap before his lessons. He is a very fun horse to ride and enjoys teaching beginners. He is a very active horse in our lesson and leasing program, specializing in beginner and novice lessons. He loves to go out to the hunter paces and school cross country. He also excels in dressage and is a favorite mount for our dressage students. He also rides western for our beginner and novice students. Don't be fooled by his size, this guy is the total package!
