Meet The Horses

The 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 90-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.
