Meet Our Special Therapy Horses
Caesar is a white Appaloosa/Quarter Horse pony. For more than 20 years, he introduced dozens of young children to therapeutic horseback riding. Caesar now is enjoying his well-deserved retirement at HHTLC.
Boone is a registered Quarter Horse gelding. His registered name is Hawk's Winning Colors, but his stable name, Boone, comes from a town in NC near where he lived until he was brought to PA by HHTLC. Boone is a "Steady Eddie" in lessons, and he has even won ribbons at a few local horse shows with one of HHTLC's volunteers.
Frosty is a Haflinger/Quarter Horse cross gelding who was named for the frosted effect of his strawberry roan color. Frosty has been in the lesson program for several years, and he is stout enough to carry some of HHTLC's larger riders.
Cocoa is an adorable chocolate colored pony. Formerly used as a children's show pony, he is a good fit for HHTLC'S smaller riders.
Peppy is a registered Quarter Horse gelding (San Top Peppy). Like his herd mate, Boone, he was "imported" from NC to become a therapy horse. Peppy is the youngest member of the lesson herd, and he has a very calm disposition.
Happy is of unknown breeding, perhaps Quarter Horse/Morgan. His beautiful, shiny brown coat is a color that is called liver chestnut. He is calm and dependable both in lessons and on the trail.
