Meet Our Horses

Our horses are the true magicians behind our program.

With their amazing energy, love, patience, and an unspoken understanding,

we have seen them work miracles with children and adults of all ages.

Each horse is unique and special in its own way.... and they all have a story to tell.

Like humans, they have their own personalities, strengths, 

and weaknesses which is why most people seem to bond with one certain horse.

Snow Angel

Sponsored by Chuck and Gwen Hill 

Snow is a 6-year old Gypsy Vanner and the baby of the barn, this little girl is both smart and always happy to meet new friends - both human and horse. Her calm disposition and accepting ways made it easy to teach her the important job she will have in the coming years.

Trixie

This petite paint pony is a confident girl who carries riders who need a shorter horse so their

sidewalkers can be of maximum assistance. And while she is a sweetheart to our riders

and leaders, her horse friends will tell you that small does not mean this girl is not very much in charge.  

Trader

Sponsored by Chuck and Gwen Hill 

This guy has been part of HORSEPOWER's herd since he was 3 years old. Steady and accepting, Trader has patiently taught many riders to be more skillful.  His tolerant and kind ways make it easy to love him.

Half-Trac

This girl whose blonde beauty catches everyone’s eye, but she isn’t just a pretty face. She is steady and calm, and she can be counted on to build riders’ confidence.

Star

Sponsored by Carolyn Gorga 

Star is a kind-hearted off the track Thoroughbred who came to us in August 2019. Gentle as she is beautiful, Star is already a barn favorite!

Dunbar

This beautiful chestnut quarter horse has two distinct characteristics...both an opinionated nature, so you always know where you stand, and a sense of when a rider is trying his or her best. This guy is how we know horses understand good intentions and act accordingly.  

Oscar

Sponsored by Barbara Slotnick 

 

This Suffolk Punch draft has a personality as big as he is! He greats each day with a positive attitude. He is currently spending some time at a different farm with a few friends. 

Cody 

Sponsored by Micky Truck Bodies, Inc. 

This guy is both kind and athletic. His comfortable gaits allow riders to advance their trotting skills, and his temperament shows that not every Thoroughbred is high-strung. In addition to carrying his riders in class, he is also an instructor favorite for exercise riding.

Lena

Sponsored by Jim and Lynn Burgio 

Lena comes from the famous Doc O'Lena lineage, a Quarter Horse stallion and champion cutting horse. She is a smart, handy mare who truly enjoys having a job to do and people to take care of. 

Sunshine 

Sponsored by James and Tracy Flori

Sunshine stands out with her caring instinct and gentle spirit. She is always the first to come to the front of her stall to get a little bit of extra attention from anyone visiting the barn.

Fauna

This sweet quarter horse girl is very gentle and willing to work. Sturdy, confident, with one of the smoothest trots in the barn, she is a student favorite! 

Cassie

Cassie is the newest remember of the HORSEPOWER team, this beautiful paint pony is always willing to meet new friends! 

Mojo

This gentle giant has quite the personality, don't let his size fool you he is a big teddy bear! The massive feet, beautiful forelock, and his big eyes will make anyone fall in love with this​ draft! 

Kentucky

Tuck for short! This small Kentucky Mountain Saddle horse is one of the smoothest rides in the barn! He is known as the "old man" in the barn and will willingly take some of our more difficult riders. When a rider is on his back he is cautious with every step and loves when they scratch his neck.

Justin

Justin is long-backed beauty! He loves to please his rider and the people working with him. He has a history with the therapeutic life style and has a great attitude for teaching new, young riders! Next time you see him feel free to say "hello" by dropping a carrot in his food bowl and he will love you forever! 

Willie

The newest member of our herd, Willie is one of the most patient, kind, and willing horses in the barn all you have to do is ask! He went from race horse, to barrel horse, and finally therapeutic horse. His mother will say he is the #1 horse in the barn! He will definitely be a barn favorite before too long!

Milo, Barn Cat

 

This cat loves attention! He pretends like he never gets any love and enjoys helping volunteers in the barn. He is even known to ride around on a volunteer's shoulder during stall cleaning time...
