Meet the Horses New

At Camp Red Cedar, our horses are an essential part of our team and do some of the most important work at our 57-acre facility.

I can’t believe it’s been twelve years that I have been working here at camp. They say if you love your job you’ll never work a day in your life. I don’t know who they is, but that’s mostly true. I’ve had a few tough times, but the good outweighs the bad. I know I am loved and that is the most important thing. <3

I want my riders to know that I appreciate how hard they work and I know they do their best to make my job as easy as possible. I get a lot of riders that have a hard time sitting balanced and are sometimes in wheelchairs. They should know that I realize the effort they put in and thank them for it. Good job friends!

Hi everybody! I’m pretty excited about my new career here at Camp Red Cedar. I hear it’s a very fun and fulfilling job. So far, so good. I’ve met lots of new people who brush me and give me treats. Not a bad gig if you ask me. I’m the tallest and biggest horse here, but I’m really just a big teddy bear. Come and meet me!

Yep. Butch and I are the patriarchs of this place. We’ve got twelve plus years in here at camp. I’m still the boss even at 31 years of age. These whipper-snappers know to respect their seniors. Well, sometimes they do.

My favorite thing is trail riding with my buddy Sonny, but I am learning to work in the arena also. I was a show horse for awhile, you know. But it’s so fun going places. They say I sometimes get distracted during my lessons but I don’t know…what was I saying? Oh yeah, Red Cedar rocks! Haha!

It’s not true what they say about red-heads. I’m as sweet and docile as they come. Right? Say yes. Haha! And don’t let those boys fool you. If I was in their pasture, I would beat them all to the barn. I am way more swift and coordinated. It’s all part of the game. My food might disappear if I didn’t get there in a timely manner. That’s my story… 😉

I have a big job keeping all the other horses in line. Mostly Teddy, but I play a part in the rest of the logistics too. I do fence checks and let the humans know when the hay feeder is empty. You know, the important things. I also do it all with perfect hair and hooves. It’s a skill.

I was trail guy most of my life but I am having a great time learning new skills as a therapy/lesson horse. I like my riders a lot! They are all so nice and love getting to feel my different gaits. All those Quarter Horses can’t move like me. The incentive program (treats) isn’t bad either.

I’m coming up on ten years here at camp. I wonder if there is some kind of gift for that anniversary? Gold, silver, alfalfa? I’ll have to check that out. Oh, and I’m picking up the gauntlet JimBob. I know I can beat you to my stall in the morning. Now I’m focused. I can do it!

There are advantages to being the oldest horse in the barn. They let me get away with a lot of stuff because they love me, like using them as a scratching post, not getting upset when I roll in the mud, slipping me that extra treat. Yeah, I noticed. I don’t push my boundaries too far though. I have to keep those perks coming my way.

I’m my mom, Sandy’s, right hand man. The enforcer, if you will. If she gives an order I make sure it is followed through. I can give “the look” with the best of them. I really love attention so it would be nice if people would come visit me as often as possible. If you just happen to have a treat in your pocket, I will take it. It’s that or your shoe, you decide.
