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 lesson horse! He is loving his job and his friends❤️
Sebastian came to Majoda in 2014, and was adopted by Vera in 2016. His father is a paint horse, his mother a Percheron, making Sebastian 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❤️
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!
Harry is bay colored, and stands a bit taller than his brother Reiver and their sister Pearl. Harry is a beloved and trusted lesson horse for riders of varying skills and ages!
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 and he is slightly shorter than our other two fell ponies. He’s a reliable lesson pony with a sweet personality and is oh so loving!
Diane kindly took Okie in several years ago with the hope that he would become a lesson horse. Okie is an ex-racehorse who at the time was being cared for and living in a field with little to no training schedule. He was a very sweet boy with a boatload of physical and emotional baggage. It has taken a lot of time, love, and healing work to help him become a functional member of our herd, but he has finally turned the corner. Unfortunately, Okie suffered a fungal infection in his eye that required the eye to be removed. Thankfully, Okie is perfectly happy with just one eye and has learned how to properly maneuver without it.
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 when he arrived! He shares his space now with our goats Mei Mei and Mulan although Skippy loves his playtime in the field with his best bud Sebastian!
