Dino was donated to Stable Life by Paulette Phillips in March of 2012. He has been a long time friend of ours as Paulette is our neighbor! Prior to coming to our farm he and Paulette joined us on many trail rides and he was very familiar with us and our horses.
Dino instantly became a favorite in our program with many riders. His small size makes him perfect for younger children who are intimidated by our larger horses. Dino is super willing and loves to please his people.
He is awesomely patient with everything we put him through. He lets kids throw basketballs from his back, put hair clips all over him, ride with bells, ring bells, blow bubbles, play with hula hoops and so much more. Dino is an absolute trooper!
His favorite thing after every ride is to have his face scratched all over. If you forget his scratches - don't worry! He will remind you!
Sadly, our old friend passed away on January 31, 2019. We experienced a polar vortex cold snap and he didn't make it through. Rest in peace, dear friend. You will be missed!
