Our Horses

Bella

Bella Horse

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.

Freya

Freya horse

Freya is a newer addition to our program and has quickly become a favourite. She is a 15 hand Norwegian Fjord/Percheron cross and brings the best of both breeds to her job. Her fabulous walk and gentle trot, combined with her accepting attitude are ideal for a therapy horse. Our thanks to her owner Heather Morrison for making it possible for her to be part of program.

Jetson

Jetson horse

Jetson is a 15.2 hand finer built chestnut Quarter Horse, that has proved himself to be a horse that really inspires our riders. He instills confidence in his riders with his calm attitude and yet he can find another gear when asked! Our thanks to Miranda Effler for making it possible for Jetson to be part of our program.

Amigo

Amigo horse

Amigo is our littlest pony, grullo grey, standing at a mighty 12 hands with a heart of gold.  He is so accepting of our riders and really works hard to distinguish between their squeals of delight and often busy bodies to stay quiet and calm although surrounded by volunteers helping young children ride.

Ruby

Ruby horse

Ruby is our 13 hand redhead (chestnut) pony and newest addition. Her sweet nature and sturdy stature allow us to assist children and adults to ride.  She has a willing walk and lovely trot with the ability to be both a lead line pony and an independent rider pony.

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.  Please contact Kelly Russell at info@thril.ca.
