Introducing The Handi-Riders Horses

     Horses used in Therapeutic Riding Programs are very special. Our horses at Handi-Riders are the true heroes of the program. They are the foundation of our "Therapeutic  Horseback Riding Program." These special horses are the very reason we are able to offer a safe and educational program. Handi-Riders maintains a herd of 8 to 10 horses. Our horses are mature mounts who bring their worldly experience to the programs. They are calm and willing to accept the teaching aids needed for challenged riders.

     Listed below are two of our current horses. Click on the picture to open a new browser window with a larger view. We have provided a head view and where possible, a full body view of our horses.


Jenna

Jenna

Jenna came to Handi-Riders in 2005 after weaning her first foal. She is a stunning buckskin half-draft /quarter horse and stands 15.2 hands high. She is a calm and patient gentle giant, and takes her bigger riders willingly. Jenna is well liked among the more advanced riders also and really loves her grooming time. Thanks to Becky Gill we have this wonderful, kind mare.

 


Peanut

Peanut

Peanut is a light buckskin mustang generously donated by Becky Gill. Peanut is a cool, calm, collected gelding standing 14.2 hh high. He is always ready and willing to take on any rider, novice or independent. Being a surefooted mount, Peanut is an excellent trail horse and eager to show his student a safe ride.
