Our Horses

Success in the affairs of life often serves to hide one’s abilities, whereas adversity frequently gives one an opportunity to discover them.Horace

The Herd – All our horses seem to understand the importance of their jobs. Not all horses have the mindset for this difficult work and because of that, all prospective mounts undergo an extensive evaluation process to determine who has the temperament and skills that meet our strict criteria. In addition of assessing the horse’s overall soundness, our volunteers act as riders and put horses thru the paces of gaits as well as performance in areas such as quick unexpected dismounts, sensitivity to sound, motion and touch. In addition to the standard walk/trot horses, flat-shod Tennessee Walking Horses are also used because of their special gait. Like any other working horse, we give them needed diversions and R&R time to keep them happy and challenged.

Here are some of our faithful mounts:
