Meet Our Superhero Horses

Anyone who has been to Blue Heron Riding Academy knows how much we all love and appreciate our lesson horses. They are the backbone of our riding program and are some very special horses. They have given hundreds if not thousands of kids their first riding experience over the years. We have horses available for all levels of riders. We'd love to have you get to know them and their unique personalities!


Shaker is our guy for Little Britches Lessons, Birthday Parties, and Horse Experiences. Students love his laid back attitude.
Tater is our original Superhorse, he's been with our program for over 12 years. He is the horse that most beginners start out on and he is a barn favorite! Tater has retired this past winter. Stop by his stall to say hi!
Mister G is a mule. He is a great ride if you know how to be a good leader! Mister G helps with a lot of our lessons, Girl Scout Events, and Horse Experiences.
Ladoka is an Appaloosa...he has spots! He's our Unicorn. If you've attended a Unicorn Party or had your pictures taken with our Unicorn, you've met Ladoka!
Karat is pure 24 karat gold! Karat is the sweetest mare. She loves to be brushed and fussed over. And she does like carrots!
Gizmo is our newest member of the herd. He is a haflinger/appaloosa cross. We saved him from one of the largest kill pens in the US. He is settling into his new job incredibly well and we are excited to have him join our team.
