Our Horses

Our horses are the most important part of any therapeutic horseback riding or horsemanship lesson. All of our horses are carefully selected and trained to be calm, patient teachers that are safe for students of all ages and experience levels to ride or interact with.


Arwenna is a 2004 Bay Welsh Cob- Section D Mare. Arwenna is full of personality. She is ridden by more of the intermediate riders but her guilty pleasure is eating peppermint treats. She is owned by Janice Edelman.
