Fred is a large pony measuring at just under 14 hands tall. He came to Jellystone Park from a local riding barn in May of 2016 after retiring from his job as an intermediate school pony. He spent many years in the hunter show ring helping kids transition to bigger horses and higher jumps. He is athletic with a fun and playful personality. He was born in 1995 and is a welsh cross.
Ashe is a spotted saddle horse who came to Jellystone Park™ in summer of 2016. She is very kind, easy going, and loves kids. Her owner enjoys trail riding with her and allows us to use her for pony rides as well. Ashe is very safe to ride and enjoys all the attention our little campers give her. This sweet girl measures in at 16 hands and her birth year is guessed to be 2004.
Java is a Tennessee walking horse born in 1999 and has been at Jellystone Park since summer of 2017. He is an all-around gentleman who is very safe to ride and handle. His owner enjoys trail riding with him as he has a very smooth and comfortable gait. Java measures in at 15 hands and comes to pony rides to help him stay in good physical shape.
Sadie stands at 15 hands and is an Arabian cross. She was born in 2009. Sadie is a smart and willing girl but was traumatized when she was young by people who did not understand how to properly break a horse to ride. Although she has a lot of potential, her past has made her unusable as a school horse, so she has come to Jellystone Park for a calm life of pony rides. She joined us in Fall of 2018.
