Moose came to Goldspirit Farm with his owner Jenna Alwin in November 2015.  Susan started his training in eventing; Jenna rode him at the Galway Fundraiser and then Susan showed him at Galway and Copper meadows.  In the summer of 2016 many life changes brought a change to moose's owner. In July 2016, Jenna sold Moose to trainer Susan Friend.  Susan showed Moose novice in 2016 and moved him up to training in 2017.

"Cally" is a 1996 Thoroughbred, but a chestnut mare.  Goldspirit Farm has owned her since November of 2006.   Before that, she was in training with Susan.  Susan started showing her in 2010.  She completed one novice and two training level events.  She has schooled preliminary but due to soundness issues has become a lesson horse. Cally is everyone's favorite lesson horse.  She is super fun to jump; quiet enough for those just starting out, and skilled enough for the advanced riders.  She is also available for a half lease!



Patrick was Susan Friend LeTourneur's competition horse at preliminary!  He is an imported Irish Sport horse that has competed in preliminary and completed several CCI* with his previous owner. He was a great lesson horse for all levels!  He was leased by several riders until one rider just had to have him!  Linda Diaz purchased Patrick in 2016 and they are living happily ever after at Goldspirit Farm!  


 Training at Copper   dressage at Woodside Gallop on!

"Nathan" is a 1997 Thoroughbred gelding.  This is the horse on which Susan Friend LeTourneur earned her USDF broze medal.  You could say; they both earned the medal!  Goldspirit Farm has owned him since November of 2006. Before that, he was in training with Susan.  Prior to becoming a dressage king, Susan showed him in training level horse trials, and schooled Preliminary level.  He still jumps and is currently schooling fourth level dressage.    Nathan is very sweet, super quiet on the ground and always a gentleman.  He is used for riders on all levels. Come practice your jumping skills or acquire new dressage skills.  Nathan is available for a half lease!



Billy is the love of the barn! He is a gray 2003 Thoroughbred gelding with the heart of gold. Purchased by Susan Friend LeTournuer in January 2014; susan trained him to be her next event star.  The day after she bought him, she took him to Galway to see what he thought of cross country.  She competed him in several novice and training level events as well as jumper shows.  He is now a barn favorite for lessons, but wait your turn....Jessica is leasing him now!



Savannah is our newest member of  team Goldspirit Farm; purchased in March of 2014. She is a 1994 OTTB; she doesn't have a clue she is 21!  She has won the hearts of pony club and adult riders!  She loves her now home at Goldspirit Farm where she is treated like a chestnut princess should be!  Savannah is a wonderful lesson horse: patient with beginners; advanced enough to jump three foot courses! Her previous owner still comes to Goldspirit Farm to ride Savannah!  She is one lucky horse!


23 years old and still as spry as a ten year old!  Goldspirit Farm purchased Pearl in 2018 as a 22 year old mare that had been in pasture for two years!  We knew she was a big time jumper in her hey day; but what could she do now?  Appantly, everything!  Now that she is fit and in shape, she is most awesome in dressage, jumping, cross country.  She is a barn favorite!



Christy Enderson has a new best friend!  This is Graesan.  She is a stunning 2002 Hannovarian mare.  She is super fun to ride, with lovely gaits and a great temperament. It is great to see Christy riding and smiling and having fun!  Grasean is schooling second level.  She is currently being half leased by Katharina Ropers.



Atlas and Megan Arp moved to Los Angeles in September 2011 from Seattle.  They pair are loving southern California weather!  Atlas is a true American Mustang, rounded up by the BLM and purchased by Megan two years ago.  Atlas is five years old and very smart for his age!  The pair are working on basic dressage and jumping.  Now that Atlas sees that jumping is better from engagement than speed; you should see his knees when he jumps!  



Welcome Taylor Miller to Goldspirit Farm!  in February 2015, Taylor shipped her super talented horse from the east coast so she can play in California!   Grover is a 17 hand thoroughbred gelding that has competed in eventing.  We are looking forward to showing on the west coast!


Nothing nicer than a girl with her pony....err, I mean a woman and her horse!  meet Buck!  Joanne Belonsky was lucky enough to snatch this most awesome thoroughbred in may 2018.  He has evented through training and done some schooling shows at Preliminary.  At 15, he still has lots of go. I am very excited for Joanne and can't wait to see her on XC. 


Jane Creighton bought a horse!   I am so excited for her and super excited to help her on her new adventure!  Axiom is a nine year old holsteiner-Trekehner gelding.  He has competed through training leve eventing.  He is a kind soul and we are all very happy to see Jane with her new horse!



Anya Olsen has a horse!  It is so exciting to help someone live their dream and help them purchase a horse!  Baloo is a 10 year old thoroughbred gelding that is a Cee Tizzy baby. He is Billy's half brother!  It is as if they know; they were instant best friends!  Baloo is a kind, gentle horse; a perfect first horse.  He has competed through novice level eventing.  Anya has already gone to her first show with him.  She took second place at the TNT jumper show in September. I am so proud of her and so happy for her!

Ms Moose

Christina Grade finished her undergrad at Fresno and is back home for the interim.  We are happy to have her at the barn.  Christine and her horse, Ms Moose, are eventers and excited to improve their training.




Monty is 26 years old. Monty is now a school horse for Goldspirit Farm.  Debbie brought him back to Goldspirit Farm with her other horse, Alex. He lived at Goldspirit Farm with previous owners for many years! In fact,  he came here from the track!  We love Monty!  He remembered Goldspirit Farm and I think he is happy to be back.  We have been using him in lessons.  He still has it!  He is available for lease!


 Preliminary Corner at Galway   dressage at Copper Gallop on!

"Felix" is a 1995 Thoroughbred gelding. He came to barn as a gawky 5 year old off the track, owned by Perlie.  Susan loved him so much, perlie sold her Felix after only owning him a short time.  Susan trained and competed him from Novice to Preliminary.  He was a barn favorite!  So many students did their first trail ride, jump, show, or horse trials on Felix.  While quite a character on the ground; he was all business under saddle.  Felix loved his jobs as both a competitor and a lesson horse.  Felix was quiet enough to start a new rider on the lunge line and schooled to give experienced riders a great lesson in the dressage or jumping ring.  

In April of 2017, he unfortunately became ill.  We thought at first it was ulcers and then colic.  We believe he had intestinal problems that could not be healed.  He was humanely put down on April 7th with several of his students by his side.  On his last day, he roamed the farm saying goodbye to every horse.  



Peter was a 2002 appendix Thoroughbred owned by Lawrence Friend and Susan Friend LeTourneur. They purchased him as a five year old. In his first year he competed beginner novice, novice and training.  He showed great promise!  The next year he fell over on the lunge line and broke his wither.  After a year off, peter came back and proved himself over and over again as a great horse for companionship, lessons, and showing!  Unfortunately, a freak accident in may of 2017 ended his life early.  RIP my friend. 


 robby1   robby2 

"Robby" was amazing; 30 years old and we still could not trust him not to buck or bolt!  He was a great dressage lesson horse in his last years!  Robby was a 1983 Running Quarter horse gelding owned by Emily Malseed.  Emily purchased him when he was three years old!   He was quite the star in the Hunter ring in his younger days.  Now, he is a star in the dressage ring!  We lost our beloved Robby in October 2013.  May you play in the fields with Wolf and Reggie!



True Colours is 17.2 hand, 2000 gelding owned by Gordon Armstrong.  It is so fun to watch these two jump, as both are fearless, athletic, and talented!  The pair school up to 3'6" at home.  Gordon gets the award for most use of our cross country course as he often plays with True Colours jumping everything in sight; and looking great doing it!  It is with sadness that we report that True lost his valiant fight to cancer in September 2013.




"Reggie" was one of our first boarders at Goldspirit Farm in 1999.  Christy Enderson has owned Reggie since 1996.  He is a 1988 Morgan gelding.  Reggie is a super jumper with the cutest form over fences.  He enjoys his jump lessons and zooms around the gallop track.  As a 2002 colic surgery survivor, Reggie and Christy are enjoying their time together to the fullest!  It is with great sadness that we have to share that Reggie died on September 3, 2011.  He is greatly missed at Goldspirit Farm, and we hope he is running free with Wolfcreek on the other side of the rainbow.
