Kyhlwood Training Lesson Horses and Ponies


I'm Red Instead

AKA Fabio

2008 sorrel AQHA gelding

I have known Fabio for quite some time and was offered the opportunity to purchase him in October 2018. He is a phenomenal hunter under saddle horse and excels in pattern work. He has also been shown in equitation, showmanship, western horsemanship and trail. Fabio loves lesson life and is our only horse that teaches advanced bridleless lessons. He is easily one of the barn favorites. Fabio prefers English and prefers to stay in the arena. He thinks there are too many boogie men on the trails. Fabio has severe arthritis and has been retired to only doing leadline lessons. We have been managing his arthritis for the past few years but due to scar tissue we are unable to continue injecting his hock joints. 



2018 Quarter Pony Mare

Fiona was purchased in early summer 2020. She was every bit of a spicy chestnut mare at the beginning. She had her moments but is quickly becoming a part of the Kyhlwood Team. She is sweet and comes when called. Fiona will excel in western events but easily has the ability to be a very nice little all around pony. She loves trails and especially loves playing in water. She has started doing walk-trot and beginner lessons and loves any attention she can get.



2016 Solid paint mare

Paisley was born here at Kyhlwood Training in April of 2016. She was started under saddle mid to late summer in 2018. Paisley is getting better every day. She is sometimes a little too smart for her own good! She is a sweet and honest little mare who will excel in western events. Paisley will not be a speed horse as she takes after her sire and has zero interest in going anywhere quickly! Paisley only does western and does not jump. She LOVES to trail ride especially if her best buddy Hadley gets to go too. 



2010 Quarter horse gelding

Mason came to Kyhlwood Training with his dam when he was only 3 weeks old. He has the biggest heart of any horse I've ever met. Mason much prefers western but will do pretty much anything he is asked. He is a fantastic pattern horse. He loves to go on trail rides but often has to be reminded that it is not a buffet. Due to a soundness issue Mason will only be doing trails from now on. Mason is an absolute love and everyone that meets him adores him!



2013 AQHA gelding

Hadley was born here at Kyhlwood Training in April of 2013. He was a slow grower and wasn't started under saddle until fall of 2016. The girls all refer to Hadley as the wall because he tolerates all sorts of shenanigans from training horses he has to help with. He is my go to horse for trails and for ponying students on other horses.  You know I trust him when I give up my reins and my saddle to a 5 year old! Hadley is my personal horse and does not do lessons and is ridden only by me. 

Little Vegas

2011 pony gelding

Vegas was born here in July 2011. He spent a couple years basically being an extra puppy and then was finally started under saddle. After having Vegas as a lesson pony for a while he went on to a clients family. Through a series of events Vegas ended up back as Kyhlwood and is getting back in the swing of driving. He will do lessons this summer and possibly trail rides but he has always been happier in the arena. 


2004 APHA mare

Snugs was purchased this summer and has quickly found a place in our program. She was previously a 4-H and trail horse but has had the last few years off. The intermediate and advanced kids are absolutely in love with her already. She is fabulous on trails and we have already taken her on one trip to Brushy Creek. She is only for the more experienced riders because she has soft sides. She enjoys all the attention and likes watching everything that happens around here!

Rest In Peace

Scootin' Petals


1991 AQHA mare

Pet was sadly euthanized in 2019. Her passing has left a big hole in my lesson program and in many hearts. 

Pet's story with me actually begins back when I was about 12. After training and showing with Pet for almost 2 years I decided to step up to another horse. I sold her in 1999 and through a series of fortunate events she can back into my life in 2012. Pet is, without a doubt, the absolute favorite lesson horse. She has taught many kids to ride and to love horses. In 2015 she retired from jumping but still taught beginner through intermediate lessons until the summer before her passing.
