Equine Partners


DJ is our "old reliable". He is a Belgian-Thoroughbred mis born in 2000. He has been our partner for more than a decade!


Montana is a quarterhorse, born in 1992. He began participating in the program in 2019. He now partners with "lighter" riders on a limited basis, but is well loved and enjoys the attention. Thanks to "dad" Terry for allowing him to participate, and to the McCartys for partial scholarship.


Victor is our newest equine partner, working with us since 2022. He is an Appendix Quarterhorse, born in 1998. Many thanks to his "mom" Margo for allowing him to participate!
