Meet Our Horses

Without our Horses we could not achieve the results we are aiming for. They are a a key element in our therapy sessions. At this point we do not own horses, but have generous horse owners donate their horse's time to our program. A good Therapy Horse is not easy to find. They have to display a calm and friendly demeanour and need to be obedient and responsive, they have to be steady and unphased by loud noises, fast movements and other scary things. A small to medium size horse makes it easier for the sidewalkers and builds confidence in the participants. We try to evaluate every potential therapy horse thouroughly, and only use horses that have the necessary traits - this way we ensure the safety and progress for all our participants and volunteers. If you want to donate your horse's time to our program, please contact us.
