It is not just about the horses,

it is about life, love and learning.

Kyhlwood Training Lesson Horses and Ponies


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 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. He is a wonderful addition to our lesson program!


2006 Solid paint pony mare

Sierra came to Kyhlwood Training in August of 2019. She was started under saddle and has been coming along well. Sierra will eventually be an all around pony but for right now we are focusing on the basics. She will be used for intermediate and advanced lessons. 


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 has been coming along very well in 2020 and is going to start lessons with intermediate and above students this season.


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. Hadley is my personal horse and is not used for lessons.


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.

Nugget was sold in fall of 2019 and came back to us in April! We are happy to have her back and we will be training her to drive this summer. 

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