Piper came to Sonshine Acres in the summer of 2009 as a four year old.  She was originally at the ranch for training only, but her owner decided to let her live here permanently.  As a grade appendix quarter horse, Piper draws attention wherever she goes because of her thoroughbred looks.  She was a dream to start, with little resistance.  Although slightly lazy at the beginning of her training, this sorrel beauty is a very left brained extroverted horse that is a delight to ride.  Her slow jog is smooth, and cantering her across the field feels like flying!  Currently, Piper is being started over fences and is working more on contact and impulsion.  Because of her desire to run, Piper is used for our more advanced students.
