Alyssa is on the road to becoming a PATH Intl. certified Therapeutic Riding Instructor.

"Just a Splash"


JD, a paint quarter horse, is the perfect horse for our teenage and adult riders. 

"Sweet Surprise"


Folie, a paint pony, is equally reliable for independent riders in the ring as she is for movement lessons on the trail. 

"Dippin' Dots"


Dottie, a paint pony, has been helping Happy Tails riders since the very beginning. She is the perfect small pony for our small riders, beginner to advanced.
