Our Featured Horse of the Month is Scooby


Last year when Punkin was ready to retire we never thought we would be able to fill her shoes. That was until Scooby came along as the perfect addition to our program in Punkin’s place. Scooby is a 10-year- old quarter horse gelding who has plenty of previous horse show experience but where he truly excels is making inexperienced riders feel safe. He is a gentleman in the barn and when we take him anywhere, he is always on his best behaviour. We consider ourselves very fortunate to have him join us. This spring Scooby also joined our therapeutic riding program and is amazing in it. He goes out in our youngest riders, including camp, and he also helps our smaller adult beginners while still stepping up to the plate anytime we take him to a show where he has shown up to 2’6” hunters. He even went to his first Prince Philip Games competition this spring. So far the only thing he hasn’t taking a liking to at Lancers is our Musical Ride. While we wish he could be a part of the ride, this is a small price to pay for all the other wonderful roles he plays and does so well for us at Lancers. We look forward to having him as long-standing Lancer for years to come.
