Lark’s Home Run, aka Homer, is a 2005 son of the legendary AQHA stallion, Rugged Lark and Sail Home Again. Homer’s sire was a two-time AQHA World Champion Farnam Superhorse, a three-time AQHA World Champion and an AQHA Hall of Fame inductee.
Homer has proven himself trainable in a variety of disciplines and his latest list of talents include dressage under USDF Gold Medalist Ruth Hogan-Poulsen’s training. Homer and Ruth’s assistant trainer, Julie McKean, have been going down centerline at Second Level and they showcased a baseball-themed freestyle in 2018, earning a 67.667 percent.
“Homer is one of the most open minded and loyal horses I have ever met. No matter the task – new or old -he wants to participate and learn. Once he has mastered a task, he is also willing to help teach it to his wonderful mom, Beth.”~ Ruth Hogan-Poulsen
Although Homer was gelded, he still retains frozen semen and is available for select breedings.
While he is a busy guy, Homer finds time to post to social media on his own Facebook page, @LarksHomeRun.
He is also a supporter of the Challenge of the Americas, a fundraiser for the Breast Cancer Research Foundation through its partner, Play for P.I.N.K. In 2018, Homer was a Partner for P.I.N.K. and in 2019, he raised the bar to become a Pink Patron for the event.
