Ginger joined our herd as her previous owner wanted her to have a productive life and have someone that could appreciate her natural talent.  Ginger loves people and is very confident in sessions. Ginger is a 14.2 hands, 8 year old, chestnut/ palomino Hafflinger/Quarterhorse cross. Horsenality: RBE

“I love moving my feet, doing tricks, sneaking treats and trying to open gates to the grass. I am way smarter than most of my humans and love “training’ them.  All I have to do is bat my eyelashes and they are in love with my blond mane and good looks.”

Rocket was donated by a family who did not have time to work with her. She had experienced running barrels and came with some emotional baggage.  Her great ground manners make her great for our program. Rocket is a 15 hand, 15 year old quarter horse mare. Horsenality: RBI

Asia came to us through another rescue group.  She and her dam were discovered abandoned.  The mare was foundered so terribly that she could not stand up to get water for several days.   Asia had no hoof care and her hooves had also foundered and curled.  Through proper hoof care and nutrition, she is now serviceably sound.  She came without much arena experience but has learned a lot since being at the Ranch. Asia is our little girl- only 13.2 hands, 15 years old and Paso Fino-Arab mix. Horsenality: RBI

“I love dressing up for birthday parties and pony rides. Being groomed is my favorite. I am small in size and have a fairy tale mane.  I bring smiles to many children.”

Cookie was donated by a family that recognized that she needed work to remain healthy and happy.  She comes with a lot of Parelli and Hunter experience. Cookie is a 15 hand, 18 year old black quarter horse mare. Horsenality: LBI

“What’s in it for me? I am unmotivated and some people think I’m lazy. Although I has great manners, I get bored very easily. Grass and treats make me very happy. I carry kids and adults around for sessions.  They could not do it without me!”

Doc was brought to the Ranch as a rescue horse.  He and a pasture mate had been abandoned in a field.  They were starved and in poor condition. Sadly, his pasture mate did not survive.  When Doc came to the Ranch, you could count every vertebra and rib through his matted winter coat. He acted terrified in the arena and had scars from an ill-fitting saddle and spurs. After medical care and a special diet, he revealed a glowing bay body. His physical body healed quicker than his mind. Hours of retraining taught him how to relax and accept a rider. Now he is a favorite with clients. He still gets emotional at mealtimes by playing and rattling his food tub. Doc is a 15.2 hands, 18 year old, bay QH gelding. Horsenality: LBE

Max was donated to our program from a donor who understood that large horses can be intimidating. Max was not handled much and had to get used to all the touching and handling.  Now he proudly shows off his tricks, especially his jumps. Max is a mighty 38 inches tall, 8 year old black miniature horse. Horsenality: RBI

“I am shy around humans, but I can get friendly once I know they will not push me around. I still like people to show me respect even though I am small. I still move, act and think just like a regular size horse, except people don’t ride me… thank goodness! Josie Conner also wrote her first book about me, “A New Home for Max”

Hope was a surprise! Her mother, Snow, came to us when Max came. She was a retired show horse that needed the rest of her years to be peaceful and quiet. As her stomach grew larger, we suspected something was going on. Hope was born at the end of February on a beautiful sunny morning. Snow died shortly after Hope was born and Max became her new best friend. It has been a great experience watching a young horse grow up on the Ranch. Hope is our baby- only two years old and 32 inches tall. She’s a precious chestnut paint mini. Horsenality: LBE
“People are so boring, they expect me to stand still and keep my heels on the ground. Sometimes I can comply, but other times I have to jump and spin. Josie Conner wrote her second book about me, “A New Friend For Max”.

Luna is a 13 year old hafflinger/paint mare who is blind in one eye.  Luna specializes in counseling and some therapeutic riding.
