Rocky left EEA in November of 2018 to run pain-free in the eternal grasslands. He was a register Pinto Horse and the senior member of our herd. Rockin n Rollin was his registered name, but we liked to call him Rockstar! Because that was exactly what he was! Unfortunately, he was kicked in the knee as a youngster and he’d been dealing with the arthritis of that injury for almost 15 years. We miss him daily! His ashes are to be spread throughout the paddock he called home for the last five years!
Cinnabar is an off the track Thoroughbred that we adopted from the NM Horse Rescue at Walkin n Circles Ranch in 2013. She thinks she’s a lap pony! Cinnabar is the sweetest horse you will ever meet. Everyone who meet her, falls in love with her. She is the tallest horse in the EEA herd, she is 16.3 hands high. She can be a bit stubborn to ride, but she does well with kids as long as she has supervision. She does very well in the round pen, once you establish that you are the leader, she will follow you anywhere! We also do lots of ground driving and free jumping with Cinnabar.
Acheron was born here at EEA. His mom, Misty, was adopted along with Cinnabar from the NM Horse Rescue at Walkin n Circles Ranch. No one knew Misty was pregnant. But Acheron was born 3 months after Misty and Cin arrived here at EEA. He was born jet black with a white star on his face and black on black tiger stripes on his hind legs. We think his Dad was a mustang. We now know that Ash is genetically a Quarter Horse and Andalusian mix, which makes him an Azteca horse. Ash has been in training to be a therapeutic riding horse since day one of his life. He has been desensitized to everything possible. He has been started under saddle by a super patient horse trainer and is going to be an excellent riding horse soon! He has beautiful fluid movement and will be a pleasure to ride!
Pony Boy is your typical pony, stubborn to the bone, but cute as heck!! All the kids love Pony because of his size! He came to us with very little training but he’s come along pretty quickly in his education. He’s learned about plastic bags and all the weird sounds that kids make, plus he’s figuring out how to live in a herd. Pony has a very bouncy trot and a great canter. He’s fun to learn how to post while trotting! He’s also a pretty good jumper! Pony is just learning about trail rides and all the scary things that live along the beautiful south valley ditches. He’s met cows, ducks, muskrats, 4 wheeler’s and bicycles! He likes to hang out with Henri and Henri is a good influence for Mr. Pony Boy!
Henri Standing Bear is the newest addition to the EEA herd. He is an experienced ranch horse with years of riding experience. We can put even the smallest of beginners on his back and he will take care of them! Henri came to us with some trauma in his background. Although we don’t know exactly what happened to him, you can see visible scars on his shoulder, chest and hind leg of his experience. This has left him with some slight issues to work through, but his quiet, calm attitude make for a fantastic riding partner! Henri has a beautiful slow western jog, that helps anyone with anxiety learn how to trot without fear. We recently discovered that Henri is actually a very good jumper. So we are now working on jumping and ground poles with him to help strengthen his back and hind end. Henri loves to go out on trail rides with his buddies! Nothing bothers him, so he’s great to take out with Pony or Acheron to provide the boys with more trail experience.
