We have a variety of breeds in our herd, including the American Bashkir Curly breed. The ages of horses varies substantially, and they are quite amazing and gentle creatures.
Our horses are included in many aspects and programs we offer at Mystic Mountain. We have a Horse Lover's Weekend program for adults as well as children. We provide riding lessons for beginners, intermediate or advanced riders, and a portion of our day camp programs, Great Adventure Day Camp, also incorporates a diversified equestrian program.
Mystic's Rolling Thunder was born here in 2002. His mother is Rose and his sire is Miracle and that makes him 3/4 Curly and 1/4 Belgium. However, Thunder is 16.1 hands and weighs about 1700 lbs. As a two year old he was sold and then as a five year old he was purchased and donated back to Mystic Mountain to be a rising star in our adult riding program. Thunder is definately a gentle giant.
Katrina was a Hunter/Jumper in her previos life. She is a high powered horse that really likes to step out. She is a sorrel, 15.2 hands, and is for experienced riders only.

Mystic's Fancy was born here in 2005. Her mother is Flica and her sire was a Curly stallion named Star. Star was out of Mariah and a stallion from New Jersey. Although M&M and Fancy share the same mother, they look nothing alike. Fancy has a gorgeous, long flowing, two tone flaxen and black mane and a cream colored body. She is 14.2 hands tall and is hypoalergenic even though she has a straight coat like Flica.
Flica of Mystic Mountain was born in 1989. She was purchased as a 4-H horse. Flica and Zac Olczak soon swept the awards in Barrel Racing and Pole Bending.
