The Teachers

Laila

AGE: 16 year old

BREED: Quarter Horse

SEX: Mare

Laila came into Tracy’s life over 10 years ago and at that time they had big dreams of barrel racing. Laila sustained an injury to one of her front hooves that she was never able to fully recover from, cutting their barrel racing career short.  Laila has had 2 foals since and is the ‘Momma’ of the herd.  She greets everyone with her gentle and loving nicker.  Tracy can hear her from across the yard most days!  She has overcome her trauma and injury and her purpose has been redirected to teaching!

Spirit is Laila’s daughter and was born and raised on the Hansen place.  Spirit was diagnosed with arthritis in her right hock in August 2020.  This can be treated and managed, however a future in speed events is not likely.  Spirit’s gentle and kind personality make her great at teaching leadership and problem solving.

Trouble was purchased as a yearling and has been with the Hansen’s ever since.  She has had an exciting career as a very talented all-around performance horse.  She has competed in events such as reining, barrel racing, pole bending and working cowhorse.  She has been shown in local Heritage Circuit Shows competing in English and Western disciplines.  She also loves to be out in the wide open spaces working cattle.  She is a ‘part time’ teacher at Power Equine as she still loves to compete with Tori at High School Rodeos.  Trouble’s funny and quirky personality make her a great teacher and she brings a smile to everyone’s face.  As with all great teachers, Trouble helps to build confidence and leadership within.  She is a rockstar.

Blackie joined the Hansen Family 9 years ago.  He was Doral’s rope horse for many years participating in team roping practices, jackpots and rodeos.  Recently, Tori has been team roping and breakaway roping at High School Rodeos with Blackie.  He loves to rope and is the most dependable and honest horse in the herd.  He is moving into retirement and will be a full-time teacher with Power Equine.  He has quickly shown us that he will love his new role and will be great at building confidence within our clients.
