Meet Our Horses

Our horses are the true magic behind our program.  Like humans, they each have their own strengths and weaknesses so it's no wonder certain people bond with certain horses.  A horse is a true reflection of who you really are.   Would you like to get involved in our "ADOPT A HORSE" Program?  Click here for details!  

Snow Angel

Gypsy Vanner

Age: 5​

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 make it so easy to teach her the

important job she will have in the coming years.

Trixie

Paint Pony

Age: 19

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.  

Luther

Mule

Age: 24

Not short on long eared

charm, our mule is a very

good teacher of persistence

and will accept nothing less

than clear, consistent

requests.  

Trader

Appaloosa

Age: 20

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

Hafflinger

Age: 18

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.

Dunbar

Quarter Horse

Age: 24

This beautiful

chestnut 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.  

Bling

Mustang 

Age: 19

Bling is a 19 year old mustang that joined the herd Summer 2018. She eased right into her new role as a therapeutic horse with her patience and steadfast spirit.

Sunshine 

Quarter horse

Age: 12

Sunshine joined

Horsepower just a

couple of months

ago, and has quickly

become a favorite

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.

Bailey 

Hanoverian  

Age: 23

Don’t let his size

fool you!

This gentle giant

would just love to

snuggle up on the

couch with you and

watch a good movie.

His loving and gentle nature have made him a quick instructor

favorite, his bouncy trot and sweet personality is what riders love about him. We are so glad he has joined the herd.

Fauna

Quarter Horse  

Age: 21

This sweet girl is very

gentle and willing to work.

She is our newest addition

to the heard and already

has a best friend. 

Ghetti

Pony

Age: 23

Another example of not

judging a book by its cover.

Ghetti's adorable look and

smaller size bellies his big

gaits and history of blue

ribbons in the show ring.  

This pony has had a great

education, and gives more

advanced riders

opportunities they would

not have otherwise.  His height is also valued for our smaller riders who need more support.

Brandy

Solid Paint

Age: 29

No one can ask for a

better horse than this

mare.  She is so

special in so many

ways, but what stands

out is her rock-steady

temperament and

infinite patience.  A

superstar therapeutic

horse and equally

good at teaching

able-bodied riders

the importance of

balance and tact.

Cody 

Thoroughbred 

Age: 17

This guy is both kind

and athletic. His 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 an instructor

favorite for exercise

riding.

Feline

 

This cat loves attention! He pretends like he never gets any love and enjoys helping volunteers in the barn!
