Our horses are what make our program unique. They are the foundation of our work and why we exist for our participants. Horses, as you know, require considerate upkeep. Each horse has a monthly expense that includes food like grain and hay, bedding, farrier visits every 8 weeks, and routine veterinarian care.

 

Without our community's support we would not be financially able to sustain our herd at the capacity it is needed. Please consider donating to support our herd as we continue to supply these amazing benefits to our community.

She has the balance, core strength and confidence she never had before.

Banjo

5 yo - Silver Pony

This lovable gelding is every bit of a companion. He arrived the Spring of 2019 trained to drive a cart as well as ride. His playful nature can easily be seen when the herd is in pasture as he runs and hops around. While working, his mind is focused on exploring the arena and helping riders play games like "What Time is it, Mr. Fox?"

Dakota

7 yo - Gypsy Vanner

Dakota is very aptly named, unintentionally, after a photogenic state with gorgeous landscapes. Dakota's black and white coat coupled with his demeanor makes him the center of attention almost always. He is a steadfast member of our team with a calm and gentle presence.

Maddie

Miniature Horse

You'll learn from our minis just how big their hearts are; Maddie is no exception! Maddie is going to greet you at the fence when you approach their enclosure with Misty. As she is trained with Rosie and Misty for Minis on the Move, we see eager ladies ready to love their community!

Misty

Miniature Horse

Misty is a sweet mare who never ventures far without her pal Maddie. She joined us the summer of 2020 and is part of our merry band of Miniature Horses! You can bet Misty will be the first one greeting you at the gate to their enclosure and a fast friend.

Murphy

7 yo - Gypsy Vanner

This lovable and curious boy is excited to join our herd the winter of 2019. He came from the same facility as Shiloh, so they could have potentially known each other from there! We are continuing to see ways he is eager to learn, but already knows how to be a steadfast friend. We can't wait for you to meet him!

Remington

5 yo - Gypsy Vanner

As a natural outdoorsman, Remmy prefers to be away from his stall. He can work a door bolt like no other! His natural desire to learn makes him a great riding partner and playful herdmate. He never shies away from a soothing grooming session or game of Soccer. 

Rosie

12 yo - Miniature Horse

This mini LOVES to be pampered - grooming, flower clips, ribbons, you name it! She is patient, yet playful, and very kind to the smallest and even largest of people. She is fearless in the arena so even the youngest or inexperienced riders have a confident riding partner.

Shiloh

5 yo - Gypsy Vanner

"Shiloh" means peace, tranquility, or placid nature. This horse was definitely named well. Shiloh was donated to us the Fall of 2018 from LexLin Gypsy Ranch in Tennessee. When working with participants, he is ready to train and can take individuals to a peaceful place of one-on-one interaction. When in his stall, Shiloh is always where the people are.

Willow

12 yo - Morgan Cross

She is a gorgeous mare made to love others. At her previous home, Last Chance Rescue, a volunteer who loved Willow worked with her on giving hugs to people! If you visit, Willow could demonstrate. When she isn't giving hugs, she is working hard to be a stellar riding partner and friend. Her work at Rising Hope reflects her gentle strength like a willow tree.
