Meet Our Horses at Lupine Farm in Vassalboro, ME

We love all of our lesson horses and ponies and they really are the heart of our program at Lupine Farm. Any heights listed are approximate since we haven’t measured most of them in years — ages, too, since most of them are timeless! Many of these horses and ponies are available for onsite half lease for riders in our lesson program. Most of them have some degree of show experience. Ask about our end of year lease specials to reserve your favorite horse for lessons and show season 2022 or just for the winter lesson series! *(priorities are given to 6 and 12-month leases over month to month leases)

Luck of the Draw- "Remmie"

Remmie is a 16.1h, early twenties rock star of a gelding. He makes learning fun and easy and helps his rider shine. He has had great success over the years from w/t poles through to 2'6 on the MeHJA circuit, has an auto swap, and is utterly unflappable. He will just be doing 18" and lower now that he has entered his 20's, but he is still incredible and was champion of the Long Stirrup division at Medal Finals this year with Hannah aboard. Look for Remmie in an episode of Maine Cabin Masters coming out in May 2020! Remmie is currently half-leased by Kristin.
