Meet The HorsesThe Horses are the Stars of the Show
Our program horses are patient, kind and love their special jobs! All of our horses are owned by individuals in the community who lease them to Kids & Horses. Before officially joining the team, each horse must pass an intense 60-day trial. During the trial, they must demonstrate that they are comfortable with a variety of toys, wheelchairs, loud noises, having multiple people around them, different ways of mounting and more.
Barney completed in three-day eventing at Fresno State. His advanced skills make him a great horse for those learning to ride independently as well as our more advanced riders.
After several years of mountain trails, Dealer found a job with our program. He loves his job, and always tries his best.
Doc is a Kentucky Mountain Horse. Doc is known as Mr. Steady and Dependable. He is our go-to mount for brand new riders because nothing phases him.
Missy was a hard-working horse, but needed an easier retirement job. She has proved herself to be stable and patient.
Tank is one of the smallest of our program horses, but makes up for it with his big heart. He is very affectionate and works well with his riders.
Lacey is our social butterfly. Horses, humans, tractors,and anything that moves or makes noise is her best friend. She is sweet, sturdy, and patient.
Cookie is currently undergoing training to become a program horse. She has a very sweet and loving personality, and is sure to make us proud.
