Cherry Lane Equine
Meet our Lesson Horses
Bear Claw
is hands down our best beginner pony.  She is an Appaloosa Arab cross mare, born around 1996, standing 13.2 hands.  Her gentle disposition and easy to ride gaits make her everyone's favorite, in the ring or on the trail.  And don't forget to ask us how she got her name!
Teddy Bear
is our 13.2 h Welsh Quarter pony (born 2001).  He does some of our beginner lessons, but really shines over the fences, with a great "point and shoot" attitude.   His "hug me" face and great ground manners also make him easy to handle both in the ring and on the trail.
Logan
is a 15.3hh 2010 palomino quarter horse that came from an Alberta auction in 2020.   He loves people, but has had some physical and mental trauma that he is slowly working through.  We are hoping he will be ready to start school string in the near future.  
Mick
Mick takes on our beginner riders, but can dial it up for the more advanced riders as well.  Born in 1998, this 14h Quarter horse gelding has been there, done it all, with most of his training in reining and penning.  Mick loves to show off his tempi changes, go showing and get out on the trails with his friends.
April
is also one of our beginner / intermediater horses.  Born in 2002, she is a 14h paint mare who excels at babysitting those just starting out, or can get the job done over fences and loves the gymkhana games.  Super on the trail or in the ring.

Forreste
is Janine's personal horse.  She is a 15 year old 15.2h Hungarian Furioso X New Forest Pony mare.  She has a beautifully soft eye and a lovely, willing personality.  She is a part time lesson horse, shines best in dressage, but also enjoys jumping, going on trail rides, horse agility and liberty work.  
Ben
is our barn favorite love bug.  He is the friendliest, gentlest 16hh Percheron x Morgan you'll ever meet.  Ben was born in 2006.  He loves to jump, trail rides, has gone "trekking", x-country, and handles it all with that laid back beach boy attitude.
Mia
is a 2015 wildie filly and came with her mom from 2016 cull on the Oliver First Nations Reserve.  She is full of personality, curiosity and sass and is currently learning to be a saddle horse, mind her manners and play nice with humans! 
Zoe
is our first baby born at Cherry Lane on June 15, 2011.  She is a quarter horse x Dutch Warmblood.   She is excep-tionally friendly, braver than she should be, and her curiousity gets her in trouble some times.  Good thing she's so cute!
Rosie and Joseph
are a set of matching minis. They were adopted by Doug from Pip Squeak Paddocks. Both have a very friendly personality and are being trained to drive cart as well as handle public relations.

June and Jennie
are our miniature Sicilian donkeys.  They are 20 year old half sisters whose job it is to escort people on trail walks and bray to let us know when they are hungry.
Piper
is our most recent feral baby, coming from the 2018 cull on the Oliver band lands.  She is a big girl, learns very quickly, and is incredibly calm in the ring or on the trail whether she's in hand or under saddle.
Black Jack
is a 15hh black quarter horse that barrel raced in a previous life.  He is currently enjoying the less stressful life of a beginner lesson horse, complete with lots of grooming and kid cuddles. 
Flame
is a 15.2hh 2012 chestnut morgan quarter horse cross gelding that came from an Alberta auction in 2020.   He is still learning to trust people on the ground, but is one of our steadiest trail hands, and is learning that ring work isn't so bad after all.
