Abe is happily retired on a farm with a former lesson student’s family and former lesson horse, Freckles.  He is missed here at Valley Riding, but we are certain he is enjoying days spent grazing in green pastures in good company.

I was born in June of 1999 and I belong to the Haflinger breed. We Haflinger’s are known for our unique golden chestnut coloring with long flowing white manes and tails. We participate in many disciplines from driving to jumping to dressage. Our short , stocky build and people-loving personality make us an ideal school horse. I have been working for Valley Riding since February of 2004, originally I participated in english, pony, and therapeutic lessons at the Brecksville facility and now here at Rocky River. One of my most favorite demonstrations was when I was Merlin’s partner for the jumping Super Pony Pas de Deux at our last year’s horse festival. I showed everybody how fast I could really go.

    I rode Abe way back when he was at Brecksville. He taught me so much! A horse I will never forget. Took many tumbles off his back, but each one only made me a better rider. Forever one of my favorite horses and breeds.
