I’m not good with introductions but this will be a scrapbook/photo album of life at Phoenix Hill!
I'll introduce you to some of the horses first.
From left to right we have PHE Kick And Go "Kodie" and SHS Titanium.
Background info on Kodie:
- Kodie was bought as a 21st birthday present for Effie Phoenix by her boyfriend Mekhi Woodward. He didn't have the best start in life but he is thriving in the hands of Effie. At first he was head-shy and nervous, he has gotten so much better with the right training. It helps that he has a good relationship with Effie as he trusts her now, he is still head-shy at times but much better than he used to be. Kodie was two when Effy first got him and he is now twelve years old, he is a Perechon x Thoroughbred.
Background info on Titanium:
- Ti was bought from Summer Hill Stables. He is a Swedish Warmblood x Dutch Warmblood stallion and is nine years old. He doesn't act like the "typical" stallion at all, in fact he is the complete opposite! He is happy to live in a field opposite other geldings, he is laid-back and a happy-go-lucky type of horse. He is mainly a dressage horse but he does well jumping too.
Titanium when he first arrived:
Next we have the lovely PHE Zander, he is a beautiful jet black thoroughbred.
- Zander raced as a two year old though was never successful, Evan re-trained him himself and he now uses him as a show-jumper as he is very brave and careful. He also enjoys his trail rides. He is a flighty, difficult horse with some behavioral issues but Evan manages him really well. Zander isn't for the faint hearted, he can be quite the handful.
This is Zander and Dante in the field. Zander is an extremely herd bound horse but he is much calmer when he is with Dante. Danta is also an OTT thoroughbred.
Dante is a gorgeous bay, he is a great, level-headed, sensible horse and is anyone's ride. The twins have ridden him in the past, he is literally a dope on a rope. Everyone loves Dante though we don't have many photos of him. Here is a photo of a special moment between Mehki and Dante.
