Our equine herd is made up of some of the most unique and well-loved members of the Midway family. Take a few minutes to get to know Cliff and learn how he helps our Equine Studies students develop their skills.
Cliff is one of the valued members of our western program. Cliff, or Clifford The Big Red Horse, is an extremely uncomplicated ride that takes care of even our most baby beginner riders. He’s also a fun horse to confuse color newbies! Especially during the summer, Cliff is a rich, dark, liver chestnut that is often mistaken for a bay. He is as sweet on the ground as he is under saddle and is a favorite for projects and general bad day snuggles. – Brett Alexa Currie, ’17
Cliff is a 14-year-old Quarter Horse gelding that was generously donated to the University last summer. Cliff is laid back and easy going. Before he came to the University he showed in hunters. Cliff is an easy keeper. He is great for teaching beginners on the ground as well. He is patient as students develop their bandaging skills, draw on him to learn muscle placement, and practice hoof packs. He is a well-loved and appreciated member of the herd. – Danielle Wells, Assistant Director of Equine Operations/Veterinarian Assistant
