The Equine Instructors

Solo (School Master)

Solo is a 1997 chestnut Anglo-Arabian gelding standing about 15.2hh tall. He was born and raised under Miss Marka's care as he is Overly's one and only foal. Solo is gentle and obedient, and has the highest level of training and experience of all the horses currently at the stable. He has been used for beginner riders for several years and is an excellent riding mount to build confidence on. His favorite activities are trail riding, eating grass and getting lots of attention and delicious treats from his young riders. Solo is currently trained up to third-level in dressage and was competed very successfully in his youth receiving a 60% Achievement Award in the 2001 East Coast Regional Dressage Association as a mere 4-yr old!

Talula

Talula is the newest addition to Overly Stables. She is a 14.3hh grey Quarter Horse x Arabian cross foaled in 2010. She is privately owned by a boarding student who is kind and gracious enough to share her with the other students. Talula is quickly becoming a new favorite as her sweet disposition, willingness to please and ease of rideablility make her almost impossible to resist!

Carbon

Carbon is a 2008 black Andalusian x Arabian. He is currently trained to first level dressage and is jumping 2'9". Carbon is a mellow but sensitive horse and is the best choice for our more advanced riders looking to move up the levels in dressage and/or begin jumping.

Dafiina

Fina is a 2001 bay Straight Egyptian Arabian mare who, until 2017, was an unbroken broodmare. We started her under saddle in the Spring, and she progressed so easily and quickly, that after just 30 days, we felt comfortable taking her to her first show where she placed fourth out of eight! She is now a part of our lesson program for advanced beginners to intermediate level riders.

Artex

Artex is a stunning mountain welsh pony who seems to thrive on the constant attention he receives from his young adoring riders. Artex was selected to help teach our youngest and most timid riders due to his very small size of just 12 hands and his outstanding temperament. He is simply one of the sweetest (and prettiest) ponies you will ever meet! We like to call him "Artex the T-Rex" because he has such a ravenous appetite!

Freddy

Freddy is a breath-taking 2006, 16.2hh Shire stallion privately owned by an Overly Stables boarder who is happy to share him with the rest of us! While his size and eminence can be a bit intimidating, rest-assured, Freddy is a sweetheart and a laid-back kind of guy. He is gentle and good-natured which makes him a fun, oversized addition to our stable.
