Ace
Breed: Percheron
Age: 20

Horses

Percheron gelding born 1998. Prior to coming to the Tally-Ho family in 2016, Ace had been providing horse-drawn sleigh rides in Whistler, BC, for eleven years.  We call Ace our ‘Fabio’ horse, as his long flowing mane, beautiful conformation and sweet personality instantly endear him to everyone he meets.  He’s a busy boy and has […]

Apollo
Breed: Percheron
Age: 20

Horses

Percheron gelding born 1998. We welcomed Apollo home to the Tally-Ho family in 2016.  At work he doesn’t mess around and is as steady as they come.  At home, Apollo is the kingpin in his herd and is constantly reminding the younger horses of their manners.  He’s ‘not a morning horse‘, and has us figured […]

Bud
Breed: Belgian
Age: 19

Horses

Bud has earned the nickname of “bull dog” as he is extremely hard working and very enthusiastic about his job. If we had a gold star for the horse that has shown the most improvement under our Natural Horsemanship program, it would be Bud who is beginning to soften and gain responsiveness to lighter requests […]

Clay
Breed: Clydesdale
Age: 13

Horses

Clydesdale gelding born 2005; half-brother to Jerry.  Clay is a little shy and is picks his people.  Gaining his trust is a heartwarming experience as the partnership provides equal rewards to us and him.   One of Clay’s unique physical characteristics is his blue eyes, which are rare in Clydesdales.

Huey
Breed: Belgian
Age: 32

Horses

Belgian gelding born 1986. Huey is the kingpin of the herd: tough as nails and steady in his convictions. He’s been officially retired for a few years now, and we love having him at home each day where we get to pamper and dote on him.  He has us well trained!  As Huey still loves […]

Jerry
Breed: Clydesdale
Age: 13

Horses

Clydesdale gelding born 2005; half-brother to Clay.  Jerry knows his job well and is often paired with our newer drivers to help them boost their skills.  He has no idea of how big and strong he is: in 2014, at our local fair, we planned to show Jerry in log skid, but when we hooked […]

Kashe
Breed: Clydesdale
Age: 16

Horses

Clydesdale gelding born 2000. Kashe absolutely loves his job at Tally-Ho! He’s first to the gate each morning with hope that it’s a work day.  We love his quirky attitude that reminds us of an elephant and mouse – he has great courage in the middle of a parade, yet may find that manhole cover […]

King
Breed: Percheron
Age: 19

Horses

Percheron gelding born 1999. King is the largest horse in our herd, but you wouldn’t know it based on his incredibly sweet, kind, puppy-dog personality.  He loves people and is only too happy to follow us around, looking for a soft pat, or kind words.  King graduated our training program easily in 2016 and is […]

Sampson
Breed: Belgian
Age: 12

Horses

Belgian gelding born 2004; son of Delilah.  We’ve affectionately nicknamed Sampson “Baby Boy” as his eyes often read that he’s looking for reassurance in the world.  Over the last two years, Sampson’s primary driver, Christine, developed a close, trust based relationship with him that exemplifies what a great horse-human partnership looks like!  He’s become very […]

Sarge
Breed: Clydesdale
Age: 16

Horses

Clydesdale gelding born 2002. Sarge and Kashe were the first of our mini-herd of Clydesdale horses that our horse-trainer and friend Ed, in Chetwynd, BC, readied for work in Victoria.  We knew Sarge was special the day we met him.  He is very sweet natured, extremely intelligent, and a stunning example of the Clydesdale breed.  […]

Spot
Breed: Clydesdale
Age: 11

Horses

Clydesdale gelding born 2007. Spot is the second biggest horse in the herd (next to King), but his kind eyes and sweet demeanor make you forget how truly huge he is. Spot seeks love and attention from his humans, and we’re all-too-happy to provide it.  He was a show-winning halter horse as a baby, and […]

Thor
Breed: Clydesdale
Age: 18

Horses

Clydesdale gelding born 2000. Thor has a keen sense of loyalty and very much picks his people. If he picks you, he will trust you implicitly and you will be rewarded with a wonderful partner. Thor has a rare, progressive neuromuscular disorder known as Shivers, that, while there is no cure, is better controlled with a specialized […]

Titan
Breed: Percheron
Age: 8

Horses

Percheron gelding born 2010.  Titan is one of the youngest horses in our herd, which shines through in his playful personality!  He’s always looking for some sort of trouble to get into, or a way to entice his herd-mates into some fun antics.  He adores people and would happily follow us around all day like […]
