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.
