Though most of the horses at Blitzen Morgans know some basic tricks, the horses listed here frequent our clinics and performances as demonstration horses and have quite the repertoire! Please note that if you are interested in purchasing a foal or horses from us, we are happy to train both you and your new partner a variety of tricks!
Riley - AKA Smiley Riley
Riley has quite the personality and he sure isn't afraid to show it off. He is our most trained trick horse and still enjoys showing off his skill set, but due to his age he only makes appearances at clinics held on our farm now. The first trick he learned, and his favourite trick to date is defiantly the smile and he sure has a big one!!!

Lila is the newest addition to our Trick Horse line up. She is Caylyn's primary dressage horse as well, but Lila has been keen to perform and learn tricks as well. She's taking the place of Smoke who was one of our main demo horses for several years, but found a fabulous forever home in the spring of 2021!

Raine is our youngest performer, she start learning tricks at just 5 months old and did her first performance at 6 months of age. Raine was born on our farm here and now she is filling the big shoes of Riley as being our primary trick horse performer and soon hopefully a dressage mount for Caylyn as well. Raine has already been out to several performances and demonstrations already and is coming 4 this year. She has mastered many difficult tricks, we can't wait to see how she continues to develop!
