A fairly mild and VERY fulfilling January thunders towards its end. Please forgive the mess on this site: this was a month of new partnerships and new projects. This new, expanding version 2.0 of our AHHS website reflects the apparent chaos that growth and change may bring!
Ginny and Nick found instant partnerships with new horses Maggie and George. Lady and Squirt found new homes and new job descriptions that suit them to a “T”. Jessie sent Volly here for “boarding school” while she returned to her beloved New Zealand for 6 months. And Mark and I found new identity as a married couple. Congratulations all!
Over the next few weeks look for website additions and lengthening days. Any ideas how we can make our website better serve YOU? We can’t do anything about the weather but we can improve our online equestrian experience!
Deva’s Delight: 16.1 1/2 grey TB mare, 12 years old. Dev is a total sweetheart, with a willing disposition and cloudlike gaits. Like many grey horses, she has benign melanoma under her tail and behind her jaw, which do not interfere with her happiness or ride ability. She is an easy broodmare and a wonderful mother (the photo on our homepage is Dev and her filly, Sky, born on Mother’s Day!) Dev is a delightful ride for a soft, knowledgeable rider.
Congratulations to the Wenner family of Harpers Ferry, WV.
May she bless your family as much as she’s blessed us!

Tommy Talooka is a 2001 registered Appendix Quarter Horse gelding. With his bright chestnut coat and his undeniable charisma, he stands out in any crowd.
Tommy is extremely smart and rises to the challenge of learning new skills. He has loads of natural horsemanship training, particularly in the Parelli system. He is working second level dressage. He is being started over fences, and with flying lead changes. Tommy has the mind and the athleticism to excel in any discipline.
