2009: Fiona was retired from the program.
Date of Birth: Unknown…1997?
Breed: Cross (Quarterhorse/Draft?)
Height: 15 Hands High
Markings: Two white

the front of her face.
Owner: Julie &
Brad Straka (Lease); Julie & Brad have a beautiful farm in
Mequon, WI, www.whitehorsefarmwi.com

School Horse Specialty:
Fiona’s size and temperament make her an ideal match with our
adult riders who will need a calm and sturdy mount. She has a
“take it all in stride” attitude that we absolutely love.
Previous Life: Julie
and Brad acquired Fiona through a PMU horse rescue group.
Did you know?: We didn’t
have a saddle wide enough for Fiona. Special thanks to Sue
and Dirk Racine for purchasing Fiona’s saddle for her. Thanks also to Julie Kaye
from County Saddlery for adjusting the saddle (actually Julie
adjusts all of our saddles!) to ensure that the saddle is
comfortable for Fiona!
