It is not just about the horses,

it is about life, love and learning.

Kyhlwood Training Lesson Horses and Ponies

Shut Up N Kiss Me

AKA Titan

2007 APHA 16 hand gelding

Titan has been with me since 2008, before the official start of Kyhlwood training. He is mostly used for advanced flat or jumping lessons but does the occasional beginner or intermediate lunge line lesson. His abilities span every discipline I offer- English, western, trails and jumping but much prefers to be jumping!

Titan has been out of commission for approximately a year and a half due to white line disease in his front left hoof. With the help of our fantastic farrier Brandon Kucera Titan is back in action! He will only be used for flat work at this time. 


2012 14 hand paint pony mare

Phoebe came to us in September of 2016. She had a rough start in life and after being rescued and rehabbed in Chicago she came to Kyhlwood Training to start her career. Phoebe has a very level head on her shoulders and a great work ethic. She is often annoyed if someone goes into the paddock and leaves without her. Phoebe excels at English and is starting over fences. She also loves to trail ride and do beginner lessons where she doesn't have to work quite so hard. This season she will be focusing hard on western and neck reining.

Phoebe was leased for the 2018 season and won Jr Reserve High Point at the Butler county fair with Julieann!

I'm Red Instead

AKA Fabio

2008 sorrel AQHA gelding

I have know Fabio for quite some time and this past fall was offered the opportunity to purchase him. 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. He is a wonderful addition to our lesson program and I am looking forward to our first show season with him!

No Paparazzi Please

AKA 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 an injury back in 2015 Mason is no longer allowed to jump but does everything else in the program.


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. He spent last summer going to a few different shows and building his confidence. He is currently used for intermediate lessons and above. He also loves to hit the trails although things out of the ordinary can still be scary sometimes.


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!

Scootin' Petals


1991 AQHA mare

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 continues to teach beginner through intermediate lessons. She is ridden both English and western but prefers western.


2002 Haflinger pony Mare

Piper came in as a consignment horse for me to sell and we all fell in love with her. I ended up purchasing her in the fall of 2017 and we had a fantastic first year with her last summer. She does primarily English and jumping. Piper does not neck rein but will happily ride western if it means she doesn't have to do quite so much work!

Write Me a Love Song

AKA- Lexi

2010 AQHA chestnut mare

Lexi is a sweet, smart mare that came in July of 2018 on consignment. I ended up purchasing her for my lesson program and she is a wonderful addition. Lexi has a phenomenal jog and a good lope. She neck reins well if you use your legs. She has been great at teaching the kids to how aids connect and work together. She rides both English and western. She has jumped a bit and seems to enjoy it. She also loves to hit the trails whenever the arena is too muddy.

Boston Wishes

AKA Boston

2013 dark bay QH mare

Boston is relatively new to Kyhlwood Training. She came in as an unhalter broke 6 year old. She is unregistered but her dam goes back to Scotch Bar Time and Boston Mac. She is a great mover and really wants to please you but isn't sure how yet. She will be used for my advanced students to get some hands on ground training experience. She will advance from there and we will see where this little mare takes us!


2018 red roan miniature mare

Nugget was purchased in March of 2019 to be a babysitter for a mare on stall rest. Although I have always said I have no use for a mini, Nugget is quickly growing on me. She came in barely halter broke, very skittish and timid of all people. She is now a curious and friendly little mare. She is still cautious about meeting new people but usually warms up to them pretty quickly.
