Meet the Horses and Staff


Sophie and Skip

Skip is a Paint gelding who has been a part of the therapy program since its beginning in 2009. Although he does not enjoy snuggling, he is a steady ride with a calm attitude.

Sassy is everyone’s favorite pony. She knows how to give every rider that “just-right” challenge. She loves to snuggle.

Ebony is the first horse donated specifically as a therapy horse. Her kisses and kind attitude bring a lot of joy to our visitors.

Rosebud is a shorter butterscotch coloured horse. More on her coming soon…
