Lilly is a fuzzy Mustang mare, full of personality and patience. She is a crowd favorite with her docile and quiet disposition, yet has a way of teaching even the smallest riders how to be strong leaders. Lilly is our resident "beginner pony" and takes care of her riders at home and in the show ring.
Zip found his permanent home with Kelly in 2015 after being a part of her lesson program for almost 5 years. Zip has helped bring much success to many riders in the show ring, and continues to be one of DoubleStar's best teachers. With his "Clint Eastwood" personality, Zip is a tough, macho quarter horse, yet lovable and eager to please.
Ally May is the oldest and feistiest of the group. As a retired semi-pro barrel racer, Ally now enjoys filling in for lesson on occasion with the peewees and lead liners, and making all the boy horses fall in love with her. Ally has been with Kelly for over ten years as her personal competition horse and has earned her retirement and all the treats that come with it!
Another Alumni of the MSU Stock Seat Equestrian Team, Curevo has now found his home at DSE teaching advanced beginners on up the finer points of Western Pleasure and Hunter Under Saddle. This #GoldenBoy lives up to his hashtag with a quiet demeanor and willing attitude. Cuervo will be available for Show Season Leases to approved DoubleStar riders.
We are thrilled to include this awesome horse into our teaching staff! Lucky is a retired high-level competitive reining horse that is ready for the "good life" of teaching the next generation. Lucky has been immensely loved and shown by his owner, Anna Munie, who graciously shares him with our lesson program and also the Michigan State University Stock Seat Equestrian Team.
Our newest recruit, Amba is a young kid with lots of potential! He was purchased by Kelly in the Spring of 2017 from Michigan State University, and will continue in her training program as her own personal competition horse. Kelly plans to compete with Amba on the Arabian circuit in Hunter Under Saddle and Dressage.
