The Horses at Keezlenutten Farm

Here are photos of all the horses living on our farm currently, plus a little info about them.


Ali - 1987 dark bay registered Paso Fino gelding

Ali belongs to Margaret. He was a stallion for a short time, when he was much younger, and sired two colts, one of which is still standing at stud.

Keezlenutten Farm Branson

Branson - 2009 15.1h Arbian/QH gelding

Show Name: Third Time's The Charm

Branson belongs to Sydney Ann. We're looking forward to seeing what this pair can accomplish together!

Buddy - 2003 16h roan Percheron/QH gelding

Buddy is a big boy! Not real tall, but really thick. He's a sweet boy that has a super comfy trot and canter. He's been out of regular work for the last few years so we're taking it slow to see if he'll be able to work in our lesson program.

Keezlenutten Farm Chili

Chili - 2006 15.1h liver chestnut ApHC mare

Registered Name: Zip 'Er Up

Chili is a very stout built horse that is being retrained for our lesson program. Her trot and canter are both pretty smooth and we're hoping she will work into the beginner lessons at some point!



Copper - 1996 chestnut APHA gelding

Copper loves trail riding and is often chosen for parades and off-the-farm trail rides because of his brave attitude.


Dancer - 2003 grey Appendix mare

Show Name: Dancin' In the Rain

Dancer is Abby's horse, but she is sometimes found in lessons with other riders. She's got a great mind and is a lot of fun to jump! Abby is looking forward to showing her again this year in the Lows and Childrens/Adult jumper divisions.


Dell - 1998 15.3h chestnut AQHA gelding

Dell is Shana's horse. He came from Hunter's Edge Horse Farm and is a great lesson horse here as well. He's got a big step and eats up the strides in between the jumps.


Dusty - 1988 chestnut 14.1h AQHA mare

Registered Name: Skippin In Saw Dust

Dusty has the smoothest trot, for a non-gaited horse. She's very sweet and is often found in beginner lessons or as a bareback mount for the older riders. She's "practically perfect in every way" :-) as long as you just want a walk/trot horse!

Keezlenutten Farm Elvis

Elvis - 1991 black TWH gelding

Elvis belongs to Angela and stays at our farm in the summertime. He is a great trail horse!


Finnigan - 2002 chestnut 14.3h QH cross gelding

Show Name: Mischief Managed

Finnigan was purchased by the farm from Lisa. He has very smooth gaits for a large pony/small horse. Aside from his less than perfect ground manners, he is a great lesson horse.

Megan on Flicka

Flicka - 1994 bay 15.1h snowflake App/? mare

Show Name: Primadonna

Join the debate in what Flicka is crossed with. We're pretty sure it's Arabian, but who knows?!? She came to us as a trail horse, but due to her "inability to play well with others" (aka doesn't like horses right behind her) she moved down to the lesson barn. We had no idea what to expect out of her, but she sure likes jumping! She's also excellent for kids to learn how to canter on because she's so smooth. Due to her older age and arthritis, she is primarily used for flat lessons these days.


Gandalf - 1988 grey 16.2h DWB/Selle Francais gelding

Gandalf has a rocking horse canter with some really nice lead changes. These days he is mostly a WTC horse, but before coming to Keezlenutten he showed on the "A" circuit in the working hunter division.

Keezlenutten Farm

Ginger - 2001 chestnut 14.1h QH/Welsh mare

Show Name: Ginger Snap

Ginger has VERY smooth gaits and seems to LOVE to jump. Her steering isn't always the best and she can sometimes get a little quick, but everyone seems to like riding her! Doesn't hurt that she's super comfy.

Keezlenutten Farm Gus

Gus - 2012 16h Draft/Paint/Saddlebred (?!?! who knows) gelding

Show Name: With Gusto

Gus has a GREAT personality and tries super hard to figure out what you want to do. He's very smooth both at the canter and over jumps. We're currently working on desensitizing him to water and fly spray.

Keezlenutten Farm Harley

Harley - 2010 chestnut 15.3h ApHA gelding

Harley belongs to Neah. He's a sweet boy that isn't in a rush to go anywhere. He will be a nice addition to the beginner and intermediate lesson program!


Holiday - 2002 bay 16.2h TB/Clydesdale mare

Show Name: Fighting Gravity

Holiday belongs to Joel and Danielle. She's a powerful jumper who seems to definitely enjoy it! Super smooth gaits and a great mind - what more could you ask for? She competes in the Modified division.

Holiday is currently on "vacation" healing from a suspensory injury.

Keezlenutten Farm Honor

Honor - 2012 dark bay 16h OTTB mare

Registered Name: Mitzi's Miniball

Honor is a new project horse for Danielle. We're hoping that after she spends some time in training she will become a horse for intermediate and advanced students to ride.



Hopie - 2000 chestnut 16.1h AQHA gelding

Registered Name: Hopie Arwen

Hopie is a homebred boy that is a big baby who would love to be your pet. His gaits are great but his size is amazing! Neither his mom or dad were anywhere close to his height! He has proven to be a great intermediate lesson horse.

Hopie is partially leased by Ginny.

Keezlenutten Farm Humphrey

Humphrey - 2009 dark bay 16.3h OTTB gelding

Registered Name: Rustaud

Humphrey is an easy going OTTB. He seems to love being a lesson horse, and has a gentle nature. He's a little "in your face" while you're tacking him, but not in a mean way. Just don't leave anything lying around - otherwise he will take it in his mouth and it will be covered in drool!


Isabella - 1995 chestnut 13.3h registered Paso Fino mare

Isabella is a very smooth gaited trail horse with lots of personality.

Keezlenutten Farm Kip

Kip - 2000 AQHA 16.1h bay Appendix gelding

Registered Name: Kick in the Pass

Kip is a nice large Appendix with super smooth gaits. His friendly demeanor and super cute face, plus his really smooth gaits, have made him a favorite at the barn, ESPECIALLY with my adult students! He has a pretty nice jump too. Just don't look at him below the knees LOL, those are some seriously turned out feet!


Kodi - 2002 ApHC (can't you tell?!??!) 15.1h gelding

Registered Name: Kodiak Cassanova

Kodi is a lazy boy that teaches riders to be assertive and how to use a driving seat aid (or he doesn't move...). But he is very capable once you get him going. He's great for teaching people to jump since he's so quiet and the more advanced riders can get him around a course of fences whether in the jumper or hunter ring!

Keezlenutten Farm Ladybug

Ladybug - 2007 APHA 15.1h chestnut mare

Registerd Name: WOR Sparkling Image

Ladybug is a very sweet mare that is wonderful for walk/trot/individual canter lessons. She is super smooth and pretty easy to steer.


Nemo - 2003 Arab/TB? 15h chestnut gelding

Show Name: Just Keep Swimming

Nemo is a cute mover and jumper that belongs to Jennifer Ellis! He lives up at the trail barn.

Keezlenutten Farm Nox

Nox - 2010 OTTB 16.2h bay gelding

Show Name: Nox Your Sox Off

Nox is Karly's horse. He shows a lot of promise for the jumpers because he has a ground covering stride and jump. He has quite a bit of personality too! He is used for lessons on a couple days a week.

Keezlenutten Farm Paisley

Paisley - 2013 Paint cross 14.2h mare

Show Name: Paint Me Paisley

Paisley belongs to Nicole. She is a very forward mare that seems to really love jumping and competing in the Jumpers. Nicole is enjoying working with her and she is also used in some more advanced lessons.

PJ - 1998 APHA 15.1h mare

Show Name: Missed A Spot

PJ is owned by Lizz & Laurie Phillips but is being leased by the farm for lessons. She's an excellent lesson horse for all levels of riders!

Keezlenutten Farm Polly

Polly - 2000 black QH cross (maybe some TB?) 14.1h mare

Show Name: Polly Wolly Doodle

We've had Polly at our farm off and on since she was about 4. Most recently she was living in Fredericksburg area with Anna while she was at college. But Anna has graduated and Polly came back with her. Polly has grown up a lot, but is still quite the little speed demon, jumping machine. She loves to jump and she loves to go fast.


Ranger - 1989 bay TWH cross gelding

Ranger is owned by Carlyle. He is an excellent trail mount.


Robin - 2007 chestnut tobiano 14.1h APHA mare

Robin is owned by Alex and being leased by Keezlenutten. She is a great intermediate lesson horse because she's very comfortable and seems to like jumping.

Robin is partially leased by Cailyn.


Sage - 1999 bay 14.3h Paso Fino gelding

Sage is Margaret's trail horse. He is very calm and easy going with a super smooth gait. After her very long search, she is happy to have found such a nice boy!

Keezlenutten Farm - Smidge

Smidge - 2011 bay 14.2h QH cross mare

Show Name: Just A Smidge

Smidge is a new project for the lesson barn. She has great ground manners and is super smooth under saddle. We are very unsure of what she has done in the past, but she seems to be a willing jumper.

Danielle on Street Car

Street Car - 1995 grey 15.2h SB/TB gelding

Street Car is owned by Danielle, but used in the lesson program and currently being leased by Hannah W. He is a fun horse that definitely loves to go. While his ground manners leave a lot to be desired, he makes up for it with the most honesty to the fences around. He will be shown in the Novice Rider and Lows division with students.

He is currently being partially leased by Hannah.


Timmy - 1996 chestnut 15h QH/TWH/App gelding

Show Name: Tiny Tim

Timmy is full of personality! Unfortunately, due to some vision changes, Timmy has been retired to live out his days at the trail barn.

Keezlenutten Farm Titus

Titus - 2009 dun 14.3h Paint gelding

Show Name: Titus

Titus belongs to Madi U. He is a great little guy with a pretty amazing jump! He's pretty popular since he's so cute, but also because he's such a good boy to ride (even for little kids!). You need to have sticky legs if he thinks the jump is scary though - his knees come up to his eyeballs!!


Tucker - 1998 bay 14h pony gelding

Show Name: All Tuckered Out

Tucker is Lisa's pony. He's VERY cute! He lives up at the trail barn.

Keezlenutten Farm Tye

Tye - 2004 chestnut 16.1h QHx gelding

Show Name: Bow Tye

Tye is Kailee's horse. He's a very sweet boy to ride (though he's a bit of a bully in the field, we won't talk about that) and is used a couple days a week in our lesson program.

Keezlenutten Farm Willow

Willow - 1999 black and white pinto 15.3h TB/Dutch Warmblood mare

Show Name: On Wings of Angels

Willow is an upper intermediate and advanced lesson horse. Every show we have brought her to she has stayed relaxed and not looked at the jumps! She's a fairly forward mare (not surprising since she's 3/4 TB) but shows a lot of talent. She seems to learn quickly and wants to please her rider.

Willow is partially leased by Katie.
