Buddy is a 19-year-old registered miniature horse. Most people think he is a pony or baby horse. Buddy’s expertise is looking cute and pulling a cart. Buddy feels as if he is a Bakas mascot. He enjoys being petted by all of the kids and hearing how adorable he is. Buddy really likes it when visitors bring him mints for his awful breath.



Heineken is a 19 year old Arab/Tb cross. He is used for all disciplines of riding. He excels at Dressage. He has been a great addition to the center.



Jubilee is a 15 year old percheron/quarter cross. She was used for all disciplines at the center until last year. She had colic surgery and is still recovering. She is just starting back with classes and is currently being used for our small riders. We hope she will make a full recovery but, it's a slow process.



Kermit is a 22-year-old Quarter Horse gelding. He used to be a fancy show jumper and now he is a happy therapy horse.  Kermit still enjoys competing at the Challenge Show and in the Special Olympics. His riders usually get first place ribbons since he is such a good-looking horse. Kermit’s favorite color is royal blue and he loves all the treats that Bakas riders bring. 



Martini is a 16-year-old handsome Arabian gelding. He enjoys going to the horse shows and performing in showmanship and drill team events. His best friend at Bakas is Buddy. They can frequently be found running in the pastures together.

Our beautiful Diamond is an 18-year-old Quarter-type pony. Although she is relatively new to Bakas, Diamond has a long show record. Her past show history includes short stirrups and pony hunters. She has adjusted well to the Bakas classes. Diamond enjoys taking riders on trail rides and playing therapeutic games with them.


Picasso is a 16-year-old registered half Arabian paint gelding.

Shelby is a Quarter Horse mare. She is 20 years old and is a favorite of many Bakas riders. Shelby can be counted on to compete in all horse shows and rider events. She has also joined the Bakas drill team. Shelby is truly a gem and always steps up to the plate and does whatever is asked of her. Team players like Shelby are a rare find and are genuinely appreciated by the riders and staff.


Tag is a 17-year-old Holsteiner gelding. He is over 16 hands tall which is ideal for the taller Bakas riders. Tag joined Bakas in 2015 but acts as if he has been here all of his life! His pleasant disposition is wonderful to work with and he does not get bothered easily. He can be turned out by anyone and is a real joy to work with.
