Meet Our Horses

We all know that the horses are the backbone of any good program, and here at CEC we have some of the best! Scroll through to meet some of the permanent residents of our facility! 


We are currently expanding our lesson program so keep on the look out for new horses/ponies arriving here!



"Beetle" is an 18 year old pony gelding, who is a huge hit with kids (and small adults!) with his larger than life personality and big heart. Beetle is owned by Sophia Barton, but is used in the CEC lesson program. Beetle has an extensive show record across New England, and is a little spitfire in the show ring! 


Chuck is an 18 year old QH gelding who is the backbone of the lesson program here at CEC! He's a wonderful confidence booster for all ages, and with his puppy dog personality, we all enjoy working around him! Chuck helps our walk/trot and leadline students excel at local shows around Vermont! 

Do I Dare


"Gus" is a 19 year old Warmblood gelding who teaches our more advanced riders on the flat and over fences. He is a solid 2'6 Hunter horse and typically a hack winner too! Gus is a fun, laid back, guy who can still be a bit of a challenge! He knows his job better than our trainers do, and isn't shy about safely voicing his opinions on course.
