Our Team

...otherwise known as "The Unicorns"




We purchased Walter off the track where he raced as a pacer.  He has some amazing relatives in his blood lines and has won more than a few races.  He came to us as his groom thought it was time for him to "be a horse".  He is happy in his new & undemanding career as our resident happy guy. His favorite thing is having his forehead tickled.



This guy has never had a hard day in his life.  He was purchased as a 3 year old as Dave's personal riding horse.  He has won many ribbons competing in endurance style races. His favorite things are pears, apples and carrots



Quarter Horse x Morgan

Dakota was used primarily as trail riding horse. He is very calm and experienced under saddle. He arrived extremely overweight and in need of a fitness program. He loves food.  All food.  His passion is food. 




Quarter Horse

Sherry purchased Roy from a situation where he was roughly handled and fearful of people. With a bit of time and plenty of TLC he has become a people lover.  So much so, that his nickname is Cuddles.  He loves carrots and kids...not necessarily in that order. 

*****5 star ultimate beginner horse!





Reno was purchased as a non-rescue.  We were seeking a horse that was ready for anybody to ride that would fit in with the rest of the crew.  He is a lovely boy with a lot more "whoa than go".  He loves people and meal times. 



Quarter Horse

Jack was an owner-surrender to The Humanity for Horses Rescue.  He needed some good nutrition and hoof care to become the lovely boy he has become.  He loves people and going for walks....sounds more like dog than a horse.  lol




Mick was purchased at an auction, saved from slaughter. He needed rehabilitative work done to his neglected hooves and some convincing that people can be kind.  Can you believe he didn't know what a carrot was for?!?!  He is now doing very well, enjoying his work and eating carrots!



Quarter Pony 

Cooper came from a home where he was underutilized and just started training.  His size and inexperience were making it hard for him to find a home. We were happy to put him to work, but not as happy as he is.  Cooper loves people, carrots, but especially, people and carrots. 



Morgan X Quarter Horse 

Gunner was having trouble finding his "place".  His companion passed away and his family found themselves unable to keep him.  After a failed stint as a lesson horse, it was recognized that Gunner is happiest out on the trails.  And, so he has come to join our herd and, indeed, the trail is his happy place.



Mexican Special

Rescued from the streets of Puerto Vallarta in 2012, Pink has readily filled the role as Sun Hills' greeter and live entertainment provider.  This little dog is larger than life itself.  


The Other Boss

Another very experienced horse-person, also with a kooky sense of humor



Irish Setter

This little guy has had it easy right from the beginning.  Ain't that the way it always is for the beautiful ones.  He's a bit enthusiastic upon first meeting him, but we think he'll grow out of that and become Mr. Calm, Cool, and Collected in the next 10 years or so.


The Boss

Very experienced horseman with a kooky sense of humor.
