At American Dream Farm we recognize the importance of learning how to ride on well socialized confidence building finished lesson horses, and that will be your experience as a student in our Lesson Program.
All of our Lesson Horses are cross trained in both the English and Western disciplines, are trained on obstacles, and at halter. They are all excellent proven pattern horses and can ride in their natural gaits, extended and collected.

Zip-APHA Zippidy Day
Zip is a 14-3 HH, 20 year old, Black and White Tobiano APHA gelding. Zip’s registered name is Zippidy Day. Zip is a foundation bred American Paint Horse sired by Tobi Haliday out of Bama’s Connie. Zip’s great grand sire is the famous Stallion Genuine Doc stood by Carol Rose, sired by the legendary Doc Bar. Needless to say, Zip is built like a bulldog! We purchased Zip as a 2-year-old stallion from Mr. Paul Baggett of Twisted Pines Paints in Cairo, Georgia. Zip came to us with 90 days on him. Zip is just a great all around horse! We have trained Zip in Western and English, Obstacles, Cross-Country, and Team Roping. Zip’s versatility has gained him many awards with the APHA PAC Program. Zip also makes a fantastic trail horse. He is a big, healthy boy with big, healthy feet, and a big, healthy appetite! Zip is also trained to bow. He is a bit of a ham. A lot of people who witness Zip stretch say they have never seen anything quite like it! Zip can stretch like a dog with his gorgeous foundation hind quarters up in the air, and his front legs laid out on the ground in front of him! What a Show Off!
