Horses - Schoolies

Dartmouth has the good fortune to have a number of wonderful school horses. Most of them are donations. If you think you have a horse that would make an appropriate school horse, please contact Sally Batton.

Wondering what ever happened to that old favorite lesson horse? Check out the retirees.

Sam is a 19-year-old, 17 hand, Irish Draft donated by the same family that donated Tops!  Sam was a foxhunter in NH/VT and VA and is a super-sweet boy!




Shadow is an 18-year-old Morgan gelding owned by Katy Coombs and leased to Dartmouth.  Shadow has "been-there-done-that" and is the smoothest ride in the barn!
