Cody's 75 day update:
Paint Gelding with one blue eye.
Curious, calm but forward, likes to learn.
Cody halters, leads, lunges, bridles, saddles, has been ridden, trailered, picks up feet, hard ties, ridden in saddle at a walk, trot, canter, backs, side steps, had feet trimmed, teeth done, blanketed, wormed, bathed, Vet checked
Cody is an 15-16 year old gelding came to DCSO in 2014 when his owner was no longer able to care for him and pastire mate Lullaby. At the time of his arrival, Cody was a stallion and wasn’t handle too much. Since coming to DCSO, he was gelded and has been warming up to being handled.
This good looking blue-eyed paint has a great personality and is in excellent health. We believe that he has had some past training and may have been ridden on the past. He recently had all four of his hooves trimmed; while he was a little tentative at first, he settled right down and the farrier work was completed with no issues. We are excited to see him flourish with the proper training.

Alissa Jensen was born and raised in Prineville, Oregon, being a bit of a misfit riding english when everyone else was riding western.
Alissa started formally riding English at the age of 12 and has only progressed her skills since. She has shown and trained horses in Western Equitation, English Equitation, Dressage, Hunter/Jumper and Endurance. Alissa started Twin Pines Equestrian in 2016 in order to share her skills and knowledge with other riders at all levels.
Her “no pressure, no force” approach is non-traditional for Dressage trainers, but she firmly believes a happy horse will respond to requests, more than a forced horse. She likes to start horses out by working at liberty, with no leads or halters. Trust is the foundation of all good working relationships, and Alissa believe working at liberty is a great way to establish trust. She has started multiple Mustangs under saddle completely at liberty, such as her ORC horse from 2017 named Journey.
When Alissa isn’t training horses or teaching lessons for Twin Pines Equestrian, she is showing and training horses in Oregon Dressage Society Competitions. In 2016 she earned her Bronze Medal riding a BLM Kiger Mustang and is training for Prix St. George this year on her up and coming horse.
