Show Name: Deceptions Child “Vesta”
About Vesta: Amy bought Vesta in fall of 2018 as a project horse for herself, thinking she would resell her in spring 2019. However, Vesta is so sweet and has so much to offer that she has stayed to be a part of the GWS lesson program.
About Jett: Jett is leased to GWS Lesson Program. Jett has a dressage background and is now teaching our beginner and intermediate riders the basics. Jett has a wonderful canter to learn on and is also fabulous out on the trails!
In memory of a very special pony
Name: Unpredictable “Shylo”
Breed: Pony of America (POA)
Age: 1991 – 2021
About Shylo: Shylo came into Amy’s life at 14 years old when he was an unpredictable project pony. After eventing with Amy for a few years, he became an incredible lesson pony who was deeply loved by so many students. He taught the ropes to countless young riders and helped many reach the milestone of their first show. There is a 14hh hole in the Gaitway Stables family, but we will always remember an incredible pony. If you have a memory or photo of Shylo that you would like to share, please send it to us using the contact form or on social media. We are compiling a tribute to Shylo.
