Hi - I'm Dionne. I live in SE Nebraska by Union. My main ride is my team of black Percheron horses. They are both turning 8 this year. I have a "mismatched" mare/gelding team - Abby and Cole. It's interesting to watch their dynamics and see the differences in each animal and how they work together (or don't...sometimes). I use them for lots of odd jobs and chores around home, living history demonstrations, hayrack rides, Christmas caroling and anything else we can try. We fill the entries at the Nebraska State Fair and do a few parades each year. Mostly, we just enjoy cruising down the road. Through the guidance of friends, I have found that we actually fit down many of the riding trails in our area - so I hope to frequent those more often.
My daughter has a Missouri Foxtrotter that she just received for her birthday/Christmas. I plan to steal many rides on that sweet little mare, too. May is also 8 and is slowly integrating in with the big horses. She has a lot of spunk and will be an excellent mount for Daphne.
Sometimes, I am lucky enough to ride with the Musils and borrow one of their mounts. Fast and smooth - doesn't get any better than that!
