Color: Bay
Bio: I was donated to Horses Help in 2015 by someone near and dear to the Horses Help family –
Cindy Ramsey, the founder of Horses Help! I have a beautiful dark coat that is often mistaken for black, but I am actually bay in color. I love to be groomed and am very friendly. I am so laid back that I often have birds perched on my rump while I stand napping in my stall.

Year of Birth: 1997
Breed: Haflinger
Color: Chestnut
Bio: I was donated to Horses Help by the Larsen Family in 2011. My short, wide build and smooth gaits make me a great match for riders who require a little extra stability. I am very flexible and have been known to execute yoga poses while trying to reach grass beyond the fence line of my stall. I am curious, outgoing, and also pretty stylish! You may see me with a mohawk…or maybe with no mane at all!

Bio: I was donated to Horses Help by the Mansfield family in 2013. My flashy good looks draw attention wherever I go. I may look fancy but don’t let my feathered legs fool you.

Bio: I joined Horses Help in the fall of 2017 on lease from Shelby Hoffman.  Before my transition to therapeutic riding, I had quite a successful and winning career on the local hunter/jumper circuit.  At Horses Help, volunteers and clients enjoy my friendly nature.  I definitely live up to my official moniker, Social Butterfly.  My favorite daily pastime is engaging in some mutual grooming with my friend and neighbor, Buddy.
