Apple came to us when we least expected it! In 2004 Diane went to see another pony named Spice, at a barn in Pennsylvania, and couldn’t leave without Apple😊 thank goodness she made that decision because after a few years of experiencing the love at Majoda, Apple has overcome her fear of humans and is fully trusted in lessons with 3 year old riders❤️ we love this girl!
Poppers is an ex-racehorse who came to Majoda after Diane took him in the day before he was sent to auction. Vera quickly fell in love with Poppers and took him under her wing. After years of training and love, Poppers is now a wonderful HIPster horse! He is loving his job and his friends❤️
Sebastian came to Majoda in 2014, and was adopted by Vera in 2016. His dad was a paint horse, his mom a Percheron - Sebastian is the tallest horse at the barn! This big guy is an amazing lesson horse for adults and is a part of our therapeutic riding program❤️
Santa came to us from a rescue located in North Jersey. He was rescued at an auction by the owner of the rescue on Christmas Eve hence his name, Santa. This buy guy is an awesome HIPster lesson horse, and has recently taken on therapeutic riding lessons as well. He loves being out in the field and loves cookies! We are so fortunate to have him with us❤️
Our three Fell Ponies were born in England and came over to the United States when they were two years old. They lived with a family in the area but were donated to Majoda when the family relocated. Do these ponies look familiar? They are the Queen of England’s favorite breed of horse, she rides her Fell Pony daily❤️ We totally understand her love for them!!
Harry is bay colored, and stands a bit taller than his brother Reiver and their sister Pearl. Harry is a beloved therapeutic lesson horse and has been a HIPster horse for years.
Rosalie created Harry his own hashtag that you can follow along with on Instagram #dayswithharryman
Reiver is all black with a white star on his forehead. He’s a reliable lesson pony, and he’s also involved with our HIPster program! Reiver has a huge personality, and is oh so loving!
Doc came to us from a local riding center near Majoda. He used to be a show horse so he’d travel a lot to competitions. Doc is unfortunately severely allergic to fly bites so, he needs a lot of love and TLC during the spring and summer months. We keep him as pampered as possible during those times with some specialized care! Doc is an amazing lesson horse in our therapeutic program, and was also involved in our last Majoda open house performance. This talented red pony makes any task look easy!
We got Skippy from South Jersey Horse Rescue but he wasn’t an abuse case. We traded a pick up truck full of hay for him! The Majoda horses were terrified of him at first, especially Apple! Everyone galloped around the field in excitement! He shares his space now with two goats Godiva and Billy although Skippy loves his playtime in the field with his best bud Sebastian!
Godiva is truly one of the sweetest creatures, ever! She came to us after we gave another goat to our large animal veterinarian, Dr Matt! Godiva lived on a dairy farm at the time, however she wasn’t quite fitting in with the baby goats residing at the farm. However, Godiva settled in perfectly with us at Majoda. Her favorite activities include exploring stalls for left over food, and soaking in all the attention (and peanuts!) she can get.❤️
Billy came to us through a friend who had Billy and his brother. Sadly, Billy’s brother passed away leaving Billy very lonely. He’s such a curious and social guy, who loves to climb. Billy is definitely keeping everyone on their toes (or hooves!) We are so happy he’s found a home with us💙
