Sam I Am-
"Sam" is the original HDA lesson horse. Sam spent 2 years being "retired" to the Little River Community School in Canton, and now he's back on the farm. Sam can often be found mowing the lawn.

Tall Dark and Handsome-
"TDH" is a 15.1 hand dark bay Welsh/Mustang cross gelding. He isn't all that tall for a horse, but grew to be much taller than both of his parents!

Winter Storm-
"Stormy" is a very smart Appaloosa gelding. He is very quiet and we have a few students who just love him.

Tanquita- "Tank" is a pinto PMU baby. She is very large, but has nice, smooth gaits and likes to jump!

Ivy League- "Ivy" is a thoroughbred mare. She has never raced, and her quiet attitude has made her a great addition to our lesson program. Ivy is mother to Dream Academy (Chumlee).


Memorial Star- "Baby" is HDA's heaviest draft horse, weighing over 1800 pounds! She is a Percheron/Belgian cross. Although Baby was not born on our farm, we have had her since she was 11 months old. Tania has trained her to drive, ride english, western, and sidesaddle. She has even competed at the NY State Fair! Many students enjoy taking her to the x-country jumping field and riding her in their first Event at HDA. Baby Star is mother to Almeron (ABBA).

Rock Of Ages- "Rocky" is a Belgian/Paint cross (half-draft). Originally found in a farmer's field, he soon became Tania's competition horse. She has competed him in Eventing and Jumpers extensively throughout NY, Canada, VT, and Pennsylvania. Although Rocky can jump 4', he is a gentle giant and is very good for the beginners. He is often seen taking beginning eventers around the cross country course.


Kodiak- "Kodi" is HDA's tallest horse. He is a 17.3 hand dark bay Belgian/Thoroughbred cross gelding. He is Tania's event and dressage horse, but does the occasional lesson. Kodiak and Tania went to the Pony Club National Championships at the Kentucky Horse Park in 2014 for Novice level eventing as Horsemasters.

Radcliffe- Radcliffe is a chestnut Thoroughbred gelding trained in Dressage. In 2014, Radcliffe went to Pony Club National Championships with Becca Woods for 1st Level Dressage.

Bounce - Bounce is an off-track Thoroughbred and is Tania's project horse. Bounce had moved up to competing at Novice level eventing, and placed 8th at Hitching Post Schooling Horse Trials in August, 2013. Bounce had the summer of 2014 off for Lyme Disease treatment, but is now gearing up for a great 2015 season.

Henny Penny-
"Penny" is a small chestnut Quarter Horse who likes to jump. She is a great "next step" pony.

Queen Mahogany- "Peanut" is a great little thoroughbred mare! Despite the fact that she is quite petite, she thinks she's the biggest (and best!) horse in the ring!

Honey Bear is a 9 year old draft cross mare. She's very sweet.

Keep It Simple- "Kip" is a cute off track Thoroughbred.

Dream Academy
- "Chumlee" was named after everybody's favorite goofball from the TV show "Pawn Stars". It is a very fitting name as he is very laid back. Chumlee turns 2 on April 13th, 2015.

My Red Solo Cup- "Solo" was Sail's 2nd baby. He will be 2 in July, and is full of spunk.

Pumpernickel- "Pumps" is a cute little Morgan/QH mare that HDA acquired in Dec 2014.

All Tuckered Out
- "Tucker is going into his 2nd show season with us. He was on the back up list for our 2014 Pony Club Nationals Dressage team. He has lots of dressage and event experience.
