A Blog for All Reasons-Welcome



Welcome to the blog of The Duchess of Lightning, a very special Chincoteague pony. “Pie” as she is known to her friends, is a 2008 Chincoteague pony.

Her dam is Denim and Diamonds


I bought Pie from her breeder, Lisa Christian, in November of 2009, which made a lifelong dream of owning a chincoteague pony come true for me.

Since that time, she has been an important part of our ranch. We raise American Quarter Horse and American Paint Horse Reining and Working Cowhorses here at Coyote Creek Ranch, so it was only natural that Pie should set out on the same path.


I created this blog to share with others Pie’s road to becoming a reining/working cowhorse. There are only a handful of chincoteagues competing in western event, an extremly small number have competed in reining and none have competed in working cowhorse. I hope Pie will be a pioneer in showing that the traditionly English Chincoteague can be successful in western events as well.

Check back for updates as Pie’s training progresses and for special events Pie will be attending~
