River is a 20yo chestnut pony mare. She was a lesson horse for many years and recently had some lameness after jumping and was no longer able to do her job there. Her owner wanted to keep her busy and she is sound at the walk and trot, so thought our program would be a good fit for her as we can keep her active but not too much on those joints. River is a sweet, kind, tolerant horse and is still finding her place at the farm. You know these girls are picky about who they are friends with, and River wants to be everyone’s friend. She definitely has quickly become a favorite of our team with her bomb proof personality and sweet demeanor. We hope to have her around for a long time!

We LOVE Helping Horse. It is an AMAZING program for children with disabilities…it shows them a different way of life; just because they are disabled doesn’t mean they can’t enjoy that way of life. You guys have been a gift from God! We love you!
Riding has helped Kate respond faster and talk loud enough for the horses to hear commands like "walk on!" Each week she meets her horse, Del, at the gate and is ready to ride. Helping Horse really is an awe-inspiring program.
We love Helping Horse! Being able to see Cassie's joy and love for the horses, the therapeutic riding activities, and the people brings us immeasurable feelings of belonging to a group of people who connects with ALL of our family... Let's just say that being included altogether is never taken for granted and creates the very best memories!
