Kyhlwood Training

It is not just about the horses,

it is about life, love and learning.

Kyhlwood Training Lesson Horses and Ponies

I'm Red Instead

AKA Fabio

2008 sorrel AQHA gelding

I have know 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. 

Baby

2017 Pinto Pony Mare

Baby came to Kyhlwood as a two year old for training. I always loves her attitude and mind. When her owners brought her to me to sell this summer I made them an offer instead. Her favorite thing is going on trail rides but she is happy to give lessons in the arena as well. She is a super sweet and loving little mare. She is still in training and we are looking forward to starting her over fences once she is old enough!

Fiona

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 is still only for the advanced kids as she occasionally has a pony moment!

Paisley

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. 

Mason

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!

Hadley

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!

Luccio

2016 Haflinger gelding

Luccio came to Kyhlwood in the summer of 2020. Last winter Rachel found him and his buddies loose a gravel road. When she returned them to their home she left a note for the owners that we would be interested if they ever decided to sell him. We got a call last summer and Luccio has been with us ever since. He is slowly becoming a well trusted lesson horse. He is doing very well on trails and has been working on poles in the arena. We have also trained him to ground drive and he will be going to be hitched soon. This spring he will also be started over fences. 

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. 

Rest In Peace

Scootin' Petals

AKA Pet

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.
