Horses For Lease
Here’s your chance to lease one of SNF’s homebred super stars! Bacardi is a 2006 KWPN gelding who was born here at Second Nature Farm. He was sold as a young horse and had incredibly successful careers in both the eventing and dressage worlds, competing through Preliminary in eventing (3’7”) and second level in dressage. He recently rejoined the SNF family and has been nothing but delightful. Bacardi can easily shine in any sport you choose, whether it’s dressage, jumpers, or eventing. He has scored in the 70’s at second level and has all the pieces to continue moving up the levels. He is a bold, powerful jumper and excels in the jumper ring, as well. Bacardi is best suited for at least an intermediate rider as he is quite fancy and well schooled. Don’t miss out on this rock star—snatch him up now since he will definitely go quickly!
Bella is one of the newest (and best!) additions to Second Nature Farm. She is a top of the line small Welsh cross pony with white stockings up to her knees and hocks and the flashy movement to match. She is a versatile pony who is happy to teach kids their first riding lessons or jump around a course. Bella has a very sweet personality and is absolutely adorable to look at—it’s hard not to love this pony! She’s happy doing anything you ask of her—ring work, jumping, trail riding, horse showing, or just grooming and doting upon her!
Dragonsmeade Impulse (Rory)
Dragonsmeade Impulse, better known around the barn as Rory, is a 9-year-old Morgan gelding who has never had a bad day in his life. This little horse is always overjoyed to see all his friends, human and horse alike. He has the best work ethic and always tries his very hardest. Rory loves to horse show; the more exciting the venue, the better! He jumps around a 2’3” – 2’6” course with ease and is a very competitive training level dressage horse who is schooling first and second levels at home. In addition to his athletic prowess, Rory is super kind and patient with less experienced riders. He is a fearless trail horse and loves to jump cross-country. This versatile little horse has the funniest personality and is sure to be a super fun partner for any rider.
Daiquiri Dancer (Dee Dee)
Daiquiri Dancer is a 9-year-old premium Oldenburg mare who is 15.2 hands tall. Dee Dee was born and raised right here at Second Nature Farm. In fact, she is a half-sister to Captain Morgan! Dee Dee spent a few years shining in the hunter ring, competing everywhere from Harrisburg to the Devon show grounds. Her natural athleticism, tidy jumping style, and floaty movement got her noticed and found her lots of success. Lately, she’s debuted in the dressage world and has made quite a splash there, as well: in 2018, Dee Dee was the reserve champion in the training level musical freestyle division at BLMs! Dee Dee prefers a confident, patient rider. Once she trusts you, she’ll do just about anything for you. She thrives in a program and loves to have a person. This is a special, fancy little mare with a bright future.
Goldie is a 13-year-old palomino pony who is about 13.1 hands tall. Before coming to SNF, Goldie successfully evented and fox hunted with her young rider, showing him the ropes of riding. Here at SNF, she’s taught countless kids to ride, from their first lessons to jumping around courses. Goldie is blind in her right eye, but you’d never know it; she is just as steady and brave as any other pony. She is the perfect pony for the timid walk trot rider or the young rider wanting to begin showing, whether it’s in the dressage or hunter ring. A fun fact about Goldie is that her show name is Medium Fry!
Oops a Daisy (Daisy)
Oops a Daisy is a 9-year-old solid black Paint/Percheron mare. She was born right here at SNF as Rosie’s unexpected baby (hence the name!) and has been here ever since. Daisy shares her mother’s unflappable personality—nothing scares this big girl. Daisy is happy to put in a solid training level dressage test, but her true passion lies in jumping. She has an even, rhythmical canter and is super brave to the jumps. Although she’s still fairly young, Daisy has already been there and done that, from hacking out at Fair Hill, to riding on the beach and in the ocean, to jumping cross country, to showing at local hunter and dressage shows. She is a fun, dependable partner for a rider of any age looking to do a little bit of everything!
Only At Macy’s (Macy)
Only at Macy’s, better known as just Macy, is a barn favorite around SNF. This 18-year old Quarter Horse/Paint cross was originally Melanie’s dressage partner. She has a USDF show record a mile long, with wins up and down the east coast at training and first levels. After her dressage career, Macy dabbled on the local hunter circuit with her next kid. Now, she’s teaching lessons at SNF and is ready for her next person. This quiet, patient mare loves kids and is the very best teacher. She is one of our most dependable flat horses for riders of all ages and skill levels. Macy could easily step back into the dressage world and doesn’t mind jumping around over X-rails. She is a real confidence building horse who loves to teach riders everything from the basics to the finer points of riding.
Rosie is arguably the most perfect horse in the entire world. She is a big-bodied, 16-year-old paint mare and the sweetest, most solid horse in the barn. Her special talent is showing less confident riders just how much fun riding can be. We think Rosie’s only flaw is that her trot is SO comfortable that she’ll spoil you for any other horse! Rosie is completely bombproof and the perfect teacher for a total beginner of any age and size. She has quite the horse show record, as well: from Morven Park to HITS Saugerties to the Devon show grounds to Harrisburg. Rosie is just as sweet and wonderful as they come and is ready to safely teach her next person the ropes of riding.
KC Kat is a 14-year-old chestnut Thoroughbred gelding and one of the most beloved horses in the barn. As a young horse, KC was a racehorse, but you would never guess it now—he prefers to go as slowly as possible! We have yet to find anything that spooks this gentleman; he just takes everything in stride and always tries his very hardest to please. He has been to plenty of local and overnight dressage and hunter horse shows, where he is a competitive training level dressage horse or X-rails to 2’ local hunter. KC’s real forte, though, is boosting the confidence of timid riders, from total beginners to anyone who may be more fearful. You can always count on KC Kat, no matter what the job is.
Rebekka, the queen diva of Second Nature Farm, is a 20-year-old imported KWPN mare. This big, fancy mare showed through third level dressage but made it clear to us that she wanted to jump! With her rhythmical, balanced canter and bold attitude, she is the ideal local hunter. Rebekka makes it easy to find the jumps and never says no to a distance. She does have a lead change, though it is slightly sticky. Rebekka has shown at all the big local venues, including Ludwig’s Corner, Harrisburg, and the Devon show grounds, without batting an eye. We love teaching lower level jump lessons on her, too; she takes a joke all day long to the jumps and will find the distance for you. Rebekka is a confident, brave, well-schooled mare who is a lot of fun to ride and has lots to teach her rider.
Noble Impression (Noble)
Noble Impression is a petite 21-year-old chestnut Thoroughbred gelding and one of SNF’s reliable dressage schoolmasters. In his prime, Noble competed successfully through second level and knows all the third level movements (though his flying changes are quite exuberant!) He is a true teacher: he is as patient as they come, but until you ask him correctly, it’s not going to happen! Noble is a regular competitor at the BLM Championships and even won the first level musical freestyle championship there a few years ago. He is a kind, gentle horse who is the ideal choice for any rider wanting to fine-tune their dressage skills.
