Rosie played a vital role in the early years of Eagle Wings Ranch. Her quiet, gentle, predictable and patient demeanor helped to build our lesson program. Unfortunately, she developed EPM, a neurological condition, that has greatly affected her eyesight. and she has retired from being a lesson horse. She now enjoys her lead position in the herd and will always have a special place in our hearts.
Nora was one of the first horses we rescued. She has been in the lesson program almost from the beginning and has carried many a rider at the Ranch. Her quiet, smart spirit serves our intermediate to advanced riders well.
Meet Dozer! Dozer served his community as part of the Dallas Mounted Police Force and was retired in 2015. He continued to serve his community as a therapeutic horse before he found his forever home at Eagle Wings Ranch. He is a Percheron-Thoroughbred cross of a gentle giant at 17 hands. He is a quick thinker and eager to please his rider. He is a favorite among many of the students at EWR.
We intercepted Cinnamon at auction. She was very defensive when she arrived. We learned that she has a scar that goes 90% of the way through her tongue---most likely from someone using a sharpened bit or razor wire in an attempt to create a headset. With time and patience she learned to carry a bit again and is now a reliable and consistent lesson horse. She especially loves children. We believe she is a Pony of America.
Cheyenne has a history as a trail riding horse and came to Eagle Wings when she was around 15 years old. She has a "rocking-horse" canter and is a favorite with beginner to advanced riders.
Sunny came to us malnourished (a body scale of 1) with a newborn colt at her side. She was so sick that she looked old beyond her years when she was really only three years old. She is an exceptionally quiet and gentle horse.
Misty is the only miniature horse at the Ranch. She is in her early twenties and is sometimes used for ground-handling and grooming lessons.
Buster is the son of Rosie and he inherited her quiet, gentle spirit. He is smart horse and is being implemented into the lesson program.
Cloud is Shanin's personal horse and is not used in the lesson program. You will likely see her with her pasture mate Cheyenne when you first arrive at the Ranch.
