This summer, Elvenstar was very lucky to have Jerry, Gemini, and Reggie. Jerry, Gemini, and Reggie are all lovely horses from Thacher, a boarding school about an hour North in Ojai. Because Thacher is a boarding school, most of their horses are sent to summer homes when the students leave for break. At the beginning of June, we got three of their horses to use for the summer months. They were all stars and had four leases by the end of the first month.

Gemini is a dark bay, and the tallest of the three, at 17 hands. When Gemini came, a few people recognized him, and we found out he used to be a star jumper horse. Now Gemini is older and retired from the jumper ring, but he is perfect for our school program, he was even used in a few dressage lessons. He seems to be a lesson favorite, and will be missed very much.

Reggie is a 16 hand dark bay that is blind in his left eye. He is the most advanced of the horses that stayed with us for the summer. He was used in field lessons, usually jumping 2’3”, and was even shown at Tri-Valley horse shows, at Elvenstar and other facilities.

Jerry stands at 15.3 hands,and is also dark bay that is blind in his left eye. That doesn’t seem to affect him though, as he is the perfect camp horse. Jerry was great for teaching new kids how trot, or teaching people with a little more experience how to canter.

This week, we have to say goodbye to the horses. But we are very grateful that we got to spend a few months with them, and we hope to see them (and maybe more Thacher horses!) back next summer!!
