Hey, my name is Mitch. My registered name with The Haflinger Association is Michel’s Checkmark DRH. I was born in 1997 and am a 14-hand chestnut gelding. I have been in the driving program since 2002, and I have the distinction of being the horse that has been here the longest.

Before my arrival I competed in driving shows. I did pretty well as a young fellow. I also work in riding lessons but, like many driving horses, I really like to drive the best. I am easy to lead, but quite curious about everything. You might notice that I like to stop at each stall I walk past and visit with my friends. I also like to chew on everything, so watch your sleeves and make sure you put my halter on the lower part of my halter hook or I will pull that into my stall and play with it.

I sure do love all the activities in the ring. It keeps me entertained. I may have extra energy in the winter, so please be patient with me. The more attention and work that I get, the happier I am. I am super for grooming and bathing. You will probably see me out in the cross ties a lot because I am so good.

Also, in 2022, I was awarded the PATH International Equine of the Year for Region 4. Not bad, huh? Hope to see you around soon.
