The Herd

Odette “Swan Princess”

Odette is the horse that started it all. She may not have sparked my love for horses but she sure is a huge part of why I do what I do. I adopted her from the Bonita Animal Shelter in Southern California for a whopping $200. From the moment I saw her photo on their website I knew she would become a part of my family. Horses are a huge financial commitment so after three heart wrenching visits, the last being the hardest, I couldn’t stand the thought of her being anyone else’s horse. So since 2016, I have had the pleasure of learning and growing with my best friend.

Journey “The Little Red Devil”

This little red mare joined the RDR family in 2018 and quickly became a favourite at the barn. So much so that she earned herself a permanent place here at our facility. Though her time giving lessons has been cut down, she is still a great teacher. She does however prefer to be in the show ring which she will hopefully get to do more of soon!

Millie “Million Dollar Baby”

Millie was an auction horse that looked like a sad, scraggly, donkey. After a short amount of time at RDR, she flourished. She is now an insanely lazy young mare beginning to start a more rigorous work routine here at RDR.



The Husband & Falcon

We met because of horses but I don’t think he realised how deep horses ran through my veins. None-the-less, he has given me his support and helped me reach some of my equestrian goals. Falcon Horse came with my husband! We may not be a perfect match but we don’t need to be. He is a sweet boy with a good heart. Jarred loves him and as long as Falcon takes care of his rider, I am happy to have him in our herd.
