Introducing the Tennuvian
A quick background on the origin of the breed
About Paula Bonser
Paula Bonser originally had a breeding ranch in Parker, Colorado, but moved to Florida and sold most of her horses. Her breeding program ended in 2000 when she moved to a smaller "ranch", but she keeps a Peruvian mare, a Tennessee Walker mare, and two Tennuvians - mare and gelding. She is interested in refining the breed and keeping an account of registered horses for location, to help buyers locate sale horses, and for owners to communicate with other owners/breeders. Paula recently retired so she can spend more time with keeping the registry alive and to enjoy her horses. Paula worked in the field of Occupational Therapy (which is where she learned and became interested in Hippotherapy) for close to 20 years, and has a Bachelors Degree and Masters Degree in Business which led to numerous positions in large corporations prior to going into the healthcare field. Paula has had horses since her 20's which included Arabians, Quarter Horses, Appaloosas, Tennessee Walkers. Fox Trotters, Peruvian Pasos, and of course, Tennuvians. One of her current horses, Cisco, was born in Colorado from Paula's own stallion (who was sold in 1999) and her Tennessee Walker mare. She has raised him from birth. Cisco looks like a Quarter Horse, but he is 100% Tennuvian!
