Cool is our oldest lesson horse at 28 years young, but don't let his age fool you - he is still full of spunk! Before Cool taught riding lessons he was a show horse, and has won over 100 blue ribbons! Cool is mostly retired from teaching these days, but he still enjoys the occasional bareback ride (with his tongue out, of course)! Coo
