Meet The Horses

The Horses are the Stars of the Show

The Horses

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

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.

Dealer

After several years of mountain trails, Dealer found a job with our program. He loves his job, and always tries his best.

Doc

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.

Tank

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

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. 

Risa

Risa is a very well-trained Dutch Warmblood with a background in jumping. She carries several of our independent riders and makes a great teammate.

Remington

Remington is our sweet Appaloosa. Not only is he good looking, but he has a fun personality too. He’s one of the newest program horses with a promising future with us.

Liam

Liam is one of the most loving and personable horses we have. He’s a retired dressage horse with a heart of gold to match his handsome face.
