This little man is our smallest therapy horse, standing at a mighty 12hh with a heart of gold. He is so accepting of our riders and works hard to stay quiet between their squeals of delight and busy bodies. He stays quiet and calm although surrounded by volunteers helping young, excited children ride!
This 14hh pony has recently been introduced into the therapy program! Coco used to travel to the states to do pony games with her owner and our very own instructor, Sam. As well as the program, she goes to schooling shows with her young riders and does dressage and showjumping!
This 16.1hh thoroughbred is a barn favourite and has a nickname of, Ray! He raced for two years and then became a pony club mount for our founder’s daughter. Now in his early twenties, he is a willing partner for our riders with his lovely walk and easy trot. Thank you to Field of Dreams Farm for allowing us to use Raymond in our program!
This mare is a perfect 14.1hh size, with a gorgeous flowing mane and tail. Luna is extremely skilled as she does both riding and driving! We are working on both hers and our instructors driving skills to be able to introduce the driving program to THRIL. This will eventually give our participants the opportunity to enjoy the power of this pony from a cart!
This lovely gelding is a new addition to the therapy program but has been with the farm since he was a yearling. In his younger years he flew over to the UK with our founders daughter, who is also the barn owner, Carolyn! Where they successfully competed at the Prix Saint George level. He has also successfully taken a level 1 para-dressage rider to the international levels!
This gentle giant is one of the barn favourites as he loves to cuddle. Standing a tall 16.2hh, he’s the biggest horse in the therapy program. Before entering the program, Kip used to show the 1.0m and 1.10m divisions with his owner/barn owner, Kyle!
Bella- Retired Off Property
Bella is a wonderful 16 hand Warmblood/Percheron grey mare with exceptional talent. She becomes whatever the rider needs! Her training in dressage has taken a para rider to international competition and yet she intuitively responds to our riders’ needs and commands. Our thanks to her owner Pat Robertson Corner for making it possible for Bella to be in our program.
And of course we have our mini mascots who help with our community awareness – Gunner and Cody
We occasionally are looking for horses or ponies that would suit our program. A superb, accepting mind, physically sound with a good walk and a gentle trot are prerequisites for consideration. A free-lease with owner accepting veterinary costs is our ideal situation with the owner being responsible for the eventual retirement of the horse.
