To know Buffy is to love him! Buffy is a dun Quarter Horse
cross who has lived at Rosewood since he was 10 years old.
Pat's youngest daughter Emily used money from her tobacco crop
to purchase this former western pleasure horse, and made him into a champion in the hunter ring before his retirement
a few years later. Now Buffy spends his days teaching lesson students how to canter, and has carried many riders safely
over their first jumps.
Buffy is 22 years old and 15 hands high.
Apache is a pinto Arabian cross. She has lived at Rosewood
for 5 years, ever since Pat's husband Harrell received her as partial payment for cutting down a tree. At 14.1 hands,
she is just the right size for younger students and is patient with beginners; as students advance, she is perfect for teaching
them how to jump with confidence. Apache is 12 years old.
Flirt (Photo Coming Soon)
Flirt is a pinto Arabian cross. Flirt came to Rosewood from
the North Carolina Equine Rescue League (www.ncerl.com), who saved her from an abusive situation. She has begun a new life as a hunt
seat and saddleseat lesson horse here.
Flirt is 7 years old and 14 hands high.
Misty is a 5 year old Paso Fino/QH cross.
Johara (In Training)
Johara is a chestnut Arabian mare. Like Flirt, she was rescued
by NCERL and has begun a new life here at Rosewood. She is currently being trained in hunt seat and saddleseat.
Johara has made great progress and is slowly learning to trust
others. She is getting used to the idea that grain comes every day now and hay and treats are
always available. Johara is 16 years old and 14.3 hands high.
