Meet Our Therapy Horses

Tony 2

Tony is as steady as they come. This tall, handsome gelding has crowd-pleasing style, and a great personality, making him a very popular addition to our herd.

Gloria summer 19

Gloria is our sweet, sassy miniature horse. Born in 2008, Gloria came to us in 2017 and serves as Horses of Hope’s unofficial mascot. She is a great introduction to equine assisted services for anyone wanting to first meet a pint-sized version of a horse, and she is also a great trail companion.


Mr. Murphy is a fun little pony with lots of personality! He loves to spend time with our younger clients. Murphy is an experienced teacher, and we are thrilled he has joined our herd!


Teddy is a Fjord Cross Pony that lives up to his name. He is as cuddly and fuzzy as they come! Trail rides and hanging out with friends are his favorite things to do.


Don’t let his age fool you, Hunter is well into his 20’s, but he is full of life. He loves to work with the younger clients at the barn and play with his friends. Hunter is also best friends with Eugene.

Prince in the Sun

Prince is our gentle and kind Belgian Draft horse. At a little over 17 hands tall, he carefully carries riders of all sizes and loves to have a good grooming session. This goofy gentleman also loves treats!

Dallie head

Avondale “Dallie” is our gentle giant! Born in 2007 and standing over 17 hands tall, this sweet Percheron draft horse is wonderful for clients of all shapes and sizes! She enjoys time spent with people best, and of course, horse treats.


As easy-going as she is easy to look at, this mellow mare has it all. Bandita enjoys getting bathed and groomed, as well as working with clients learning riding skills.


A friend to all, Matilda is a Belgian Draft cross and loves to be pampered. Her sweet personality makes her a wonderful addition. She also enjoys long walks and going through the obstacle course with her riders.


Mr. Eugene is the sweetest guy around. Recently retired, he no longer participates in client sessions, but loves to greet everyone that comes out to the barn!
