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.


Beamer "First & Goal"

Beamer is a 13 year old, 18-hand Hanoverian donated by the Bell/Krysiewicz family and has an extensive show record in both Hunters and Equitation.  Beamer has replaced Puff as the resident hottie and turns heads everywhere he goes!

bodie jumping


Bodie is an adorable 15.1 hand QH gelding purchased from Elise Stigum.  Bodie has been-there-done-that and is the steady-eddie of our school horse string.  As our shortest school horse, Bodie likes to say he's "small but mighty"!


Brady "BJ"

Brady is a 17 hand Irish Draft gelding who was a foxhunter until he came to Dartmouth!  Brady is a loved addition to both the Equestrian Team and the Dressage Club and has a heart of gold, to match his flowing tresses!



Bravado is a 17.2 hand Hanoverian/TB gelding who had a show record in both Hunters and Jumpers before coming to Dartmouth.  Bravado was recruited to Dartmouth to join the Heavyweight rowers but lost weight over the summer and has joined the cross-country team.



Dutch "Prince of Holland"

Dutch has a background in both Hunters and Dressage and is a 17-hand Dutch Warmblood. Dutch is leased to Dartmouth by Kendra Messer from West Meadow Stables.  At the 2016 NHHJA Finals Dutch was 3rd in both Open Special Hunters and Hunter Pleasure.  Dutch is still in touch with his friends at West Meadow and sends them snapchats daily. 


henry jumping

Henry "Hendrick"

Henry is a 17-hand Holsteiner/TB with a background in Hunters/Jumpers and Eventing.  Since he's part Thoroughbred, Henry has been overheard telling all the other horses that he's related to Triple Crown winners American Pharoah and Secretariat, but it makes him happy so we don't dispute his claims!




Le Prince is a 16.2 Hanoverian who was donated by the Champ Family and came to us from CA!  Team co-captain Olivia Champ and Prince were quite the pair through her Junior years, as the Pacific Coast Horse Show Association Equitation Finals Champion and the Del Mar National Open Equitation Championship Reserve Champion.  Prince loves his giant grass pasture but is a bit apprehensive about the rumors he's hearing about below zero winter temperatures!




Slick "Gracious Plenty"

Slick is a 17.1 Irish Sport Horse donated by Lisa Cook.  Slick has an extensive Eventing background and has recently been competing in NHHJA shows in the summers.  Slick is a solid boy and brags that he can bench press more than any Dartmouth Football linemen, but has yet to show up in the Varsity gym to prove it.


Tommy "Mardi Gras"

Tommy is a 16.1 Hanoverian and was donated by Kathi Bruce.  Tommy has an extensive Dressage background but also loves to jump!  Born and bred in Vermont, Tommy voted for Bernie Sanders in the last election and always chooses Ben & Jerry's.


zoey running


Zoey is a 9-hand Husky Shepherd mix who can jump over any and all obstacles and is the fastest animal seen on the farm.  She loves all her woodland friends(especially the skunks and porcupines) and will do tricks for food!
