We searched far and wide for the perfect novice lesson horse.  We found Phoenix in Arizona at Cowgirl Cadillacs.  Pheonix is a Gypsy Vanner / Shire cross.  He is super safe, even for someone who has never been on a horse before.  He is a babysitter, a schoolmaster and will take care of you as you get a solid foundation.

Lessons on Phoenix are offered at $135.
