This is Cloud, a true unicorn among lesson horses. This gentle giant can teach a small child to trot in one lesson and then turn around and take an advanced rider over a jump course. He's truly one of a kind and we're lucky to have him at Horse & Hive Farm.

Tater Tot might be missing an eye and an ear but that's never stopped her from being an outstanding lesson pony. In addition to teaching students the art of riding and horsemanship, she also teaches students the importance of acceptance and resilience. We'd be lost without her at Horse & Hive Farm!

Our family has 3. Top is Blinky, he’s our former lease and will always hold a special place in our hearts, he got us through the pandemic and is the sweetest sole. Bottom left, is Misty, my first pony who taught me all the life lessons and kept me out of trouble growing up. Bottom right, my daughters current pony, Hershey whose a spitfire and teaches all the things whether you want to be taught them or not.

This is Meatball with my daughter, Ellie, after Ellie’s very first canter at Horse & Hive Farm. Meatball is a sweetheart pony with a great smile 😁

I may have missed the deadline, but I’d be remiss not to let the world know about Mater, our 13-year-old OTTB lesson horse at Horse & Hive Farm. Mater will glare at you in the field, act like a grump all through grooming and tacking up, but then tote the smallest, most inexperienced rider around the ring without a single argument. Don’t tell him we told you, but he can be easily won over with peppermint cookies, which may even earn you a kiss ♥️ Mater certainly has his quirks, but we wouldn’t change a thing about him. Pictured here with Lucie, age 8 — Mater is her is her favorite!

By Katherine O. Rizzo (first published in the May 2022 Equiery) Thoroughbred racing throughout the world is known as the “Sport of Kings,” with reference mainly to the amount of money it takes to produce a winning horse. Racing lovers acknowledge, however, that the horses themselves are truly the kings – and queens – of the sport. As of December 31, 2021, there are 28 Maryland-bred Thoroughbred racehorses that are true royalty because each of them have at least $1 million in career earnings....
