Meet Our Horses

HTR horses are our 1,000 pound, four-legged therapists. They are very special horses chosen for their temperament, movement and size. Our horses provide our riders with freedom, confidence and friendship.

They don’t have an easy job as they provide over 2,500 rides a year. They receive lots of big hugs and treats from grateful riders, but it takes more than love and treats to keep horses healthy and happy. It takes money! Consider sponsoring a horse to help with the cost of their care.
