Our School Horses

Here at Woodwind Farm, we are so very grateful to not only have a large number of school horses of different breeds to love on, take lessons with, and show locally and nationally, but we also have the best and safest school horses around to do all of that! Read about them below!

In our school horse’s information below you can read about their accomplishments, favorite treats, birthdays and their “Show Names” used at off-farm shows are next to their barn names!

If you ever come visit your favorite school horses for lessons, birthday parties, camp or scouting events, they are in our barn with YELLOW name tags. With instructor permission, feel free to bring some of their favorite treats with you to give!



Jack is an American Saddlebred and has competed very successfully in Pleasure Equitation working with his riders to receive Pleasure Equitation Olympic medals and Top 10 rankings. He also showed in Western Country Pleasure to receive many state and national titles for his success in that division!

You can see Jack and Alex being silly dressed up as a cop and car for the 2017 Costume Class with the Woodwind Farm Showstoppers!

Roany is our only Welsh Pony that we have on the farm. Not only is this pony sweet enough for our littlest riders but she can be challenging enough for our intermediate riders as well. Take him for a spin and let us know what you think!

Tootsie (“The Prairie Star”)

Tootsie is one of our more advanced school horses not because of her demeanor, but because she will always be a show horse. She is great for advanced students looking for that next step who need to feel what it’s like to “go big”. Tootsie not only always feels like a show horse but she has taken and qualified a number of Woodwind Farm equitation riders to and for the Pleasure Equitation Olympics.

Gator (“Oak Grove’s Izod”)

Gator is a half brother to our other school horse, Motza, and you can definitely see the relationship. Gator is sweet, caring, and safe for all of his riders. As your riding progresses, he is quick to realize this and is ready to teach any rider to ride with the legs rather than their hands.

Being our only Percheron horse on the properly, this girl definitely stands out from the crowd. Freya is our gentle giant who is able to take our newest or most timid riders around for their first time to showing with our Walk/Trot riders at off-farm horse shows. When she’s not teaching her favorite place to be is our pastures outside with our young horses (she’s Auntie Freya when the little ones come home).
