Friday

Friday is 16 hands of  fabulous hair, with a flamboyant personality to match! 

Friday may be a Canadian/Percheron cross gelding, but he is 100% sassy attitude!

Friday joined CVTRS in Spring of 2018.

Friday enjoys going on the trails with his riders, and being the big boss in the fields.

Because of Friday’s height and broad, strong build, he is ideal for our adult riders, but he also enjoys getting to play with some of our smallest clients as well.

Of our 2 fjords, Summer is the wild child! 

Summer enjoys lots of lively energy from her riders, and her favourite activity is trotting merrily around the arena, teaching her rider how to post!

Summer joined the herd in 2018, coming all the way from Cranbrook, BC.

Layton

At only 13hh, Layton is a big personality in a tiny package! This little horse loves his job, and can’t wait to get to work in the mornings.

Layton challenges his riders to stay present in the moment, and focused on their riding. If they don’t, Layton will start wiggling like an excited puppy!

Layton is definitely the clown of the barn, and he is always ready to play with anyone.  He always brings a smile to his riders, volunteers and staff alike.

Layton joined the CVTRS team in 2013, and is owned by CVTRS.

Bella joined CVTRS in 2011. Her gentle, patient personality perfectly suited our smaller, more physically challenged riders. Bella quickly began to show us her versatility, and started participating in the Stable Program classes as well. She is truly an all around pony!

When Bella isn’t in classes, she can be found in her field, regally ruling over the other horses.
