Our Riding Lesson Horses

Meet The Lesson Horses

Our lesson horses offer a variety of experiences.
Our horses provide opportunities for beginner, intermediate and advanced riders.


Goddess

Martini

Indy

Goddess is a once in a lifetime horse. Back in her day she was a big show horse, winning National Championships in Canada and winning at the big Arabian horse show. She is such a versatile horse that she can adjust from beginners to advanced show riders. She takes care of her riders and is a gentle soul. Special thanks to the Havir family for letting us use this sweet girl.

Martini is an all around great horse, she teaches beginner riders how to trot and post but she also teaches advanced riders how to ride a top show horse. She is a constant winner on the Arabian circuit and February of this year she was reserve at the Scottsdale Arabian horse show. Martini loves what she does and is one of the sweetest horses around. Martini never fails to put a smile on people’s face.

Indy is the newest member of our awesome school horse team. She is a lovely bay Morgan who can help our riders learn to ride and drive! Indy is so gentle but also likes to go and is perfect for the youngest to the oldest riders.

Rambo

K.C.

Courage

Rambo is one cool dude and fun to ride. He goes by Rambo but his show name is Man About Town and he does a great job “representing” the Morgan breed. Rambo helps riders learn how to make a horse go forward while planning ahead for anything and everything!. Rambo will keep you on your toes!

This American Saddlebred is one of the sweetest horses you will every meet, and he’s perfect for intermediate and advanced riders. Count Fleet, aka K.C., will give you what you ask for, loves to please and even does driving lessons. And when he’s not giving lessons or being shown, he loves to trail ride with his owner. Many thanks to Joe Barnett for letting us use this special horse!

Absolute Courage is one of the newest additions to the Desert Palms lesson horse family. Also owned by Joe Barnett, this American Saddlebred can really set his head and provides intermediate and advanced riders a great opportunity to learn on a horse who only recently finished a successful show career. Thanks, Joe, for adding “Courage” to our lesson horse fleet!
