AUGUST 2017
WILLIE

The month of August brings in warm sunshine, corn on the cob, and magnificent red sunsets -- perfect month to feature our beautiful red toned Irish!

While he has only been at Three Gaits for two years, he's kind, patient, and talkative -- easily a favorite of many riders and staff.

Irish is a 19-year-old liver chestnut quarter horse who is generously leased to the Three Gait's lesson program by Shawn Carlin and continues to be sponsored and supported by Cindy Frank. This sweet boy is an average size of 15.2 hands tall, but stands out from the crowd with his rich coloring, three white socks, and thin stripe down his nose.

Irish came to Three Gaits following a career as a Western trail horse. His past adventures contribute to his long and low movement and love for being outdoors.

Never one to miss a meal, you may have seen Irish galloping into the barn from the paddock during turn in! He is friends with his whole herd and one of the first to greet visitors to Three Gaits with a kind eye and expectant appetite for treats.

Irish is loved by riders of all levels, teaching beginning riders confidence with his height but steady pace, and more advanced riders how to perform a posting trot on his natural bounce.

Want to Get Irish Gift?

If you would like to help us celebrate Irish and his value to the program, he would appreciate a pair of extra long reins (short child arms + long neck = tricky to steer) and donations toward a new saddle fitting.
