Zone 1

Well A Way Farm_Classy_PC WAWF.jpgClassy Act aka Classy

Adored by RRA Well-A Way-Farm of Simsbury, CT

20+ year old Warmblood, 10+ years giving lessons

Favorite Treat: Apples and carrots

If she were a famous person, she would be: Jennifer Aniston - they both look great for their age!

Classy is the kindest and most special teacher. She has the best rocking horse canter for students just learning to canter but still makes her riders work! Classy is the BEST first horse show horse, too. She loves to show and shows her riders how it's done in the walk/trot and walk/trot/canter classes. A barn favorite, all of the kids ask for her! We are so lucky to have Classy as part of our Well-A-Way Farm family! PC: WAWF

Zone 3

Adored by RRA Full Moon Farm of Finksburg, MD

28 year old Irish Sport Horse, a lifetime of years giving lessons

Favorite Treat: He doesn't turn down a treat, but probably apples!

If he were a famous person, he would be: Professor Dumbledore

Sully is special because he is in tune with everything around him, even if he's stoic about it. He will do whatever it takes to get the job done and take care of his rider. Sully teaches students how to be a more technical and effective rider, and he is the very best at teaching riders how to properly sit the trot! Sully has been referred to as the "King of Kings" by the students and they're not wrong! PC: Amy Flemming Waters
