Bill has turned into a phenomenal camp horse. He is our only quarter horse in the program and campers love his smooth jog. Bill requires a soft yet firm rider and usually when campers excel with Bill it tells us of their horse ability. Bill is very playful and can usually be seen nipping and playing with his pasture mates.
A flashy, good looking Arabian. Bud is very smart, extremely sensitive and becomes your best friend very quickly as you show your leadership skills, hence his name, Bud. We hope in the years to come he will be everyone’s Buddy.
The first thing to say about Bullet is that he has his own fan club. When he developed colic last year that required surgery there was no thought that we had to do everything we could to save his life. He has dozens of pet names by campers and is always the horse that gets the most hugs by the end of the week.
A camper favorite as well. Cinnamon loves playing with the kids at groundwork and usually wows them as she does the circle game, jumping the pole as she circles the camper. Her second passion is driving and looks adorable as she is hooked up to the pony cart and drives people around.
Our camp thoroughbred and tallest horse, Diamond is very friendly, loving kids and highly relational coming up the fence and wanting to be rubbed.
A handsome paint, Dreamer is quite the gentleman. He loves to play with the other horses, the nip and run game. He is a favorite b/c of his size and color but then once our students start playing with him, he becomes a favorite b/c of his sweet nature and wanting to please.
“Mom to Rosebud” is probably how Ginger is best known, however she is extremely sensitive and loves to do groundwork. She loves the friendly game with the campers and is trying her heart out to help the campers learn.
Named by our campers, Hazel is a Percheron/Thoroughbred cross. She is a gentle giant. She has many nicknames all referring to her size. She loves people and has many admirers.
Our funny playful pony. You can’t stay in a bad mood around Larry; he’ll either make you smile or laugh with his clever antics or his kisses. Larry is currently only being used in our groundwork segment where again he makes everyone fall in love with him. He is a quick learner; he will be showing off soon with all of his new “tricks”.
Although she is the smallest, Rosebud may be considered the camp mascot. Rosebud draws everyone in, whether they are a horse lover or not. You can’t make it into the doorway of the barn without wanting to pet and rub on Rosebud. Come out to camp and get to know her, you’ll fall in love as well!!
A natural beauty, Diamond’s half sister Sky is a thoroughbred as well. She is very even tempered and she tends to hide in the shadows of the herd. Being new to the ministry she is gradually making her way into the full time ranks of a Camp Jabez horse.
Zak is extremely sensitive and loves to play with the campers during groundwork time. However he also loves to show off during riding time by turning for the campers with just a glance in a direction. Zak will always be the first to greet anyone in the pasture or arena.
