Teddy is a newer addition to our program and he's loving his new life getting lots of brushing and loving from our riders. Teddy loves to teach our riders how to balance properly when riding and he especially loves to trot!
Short Stop (Shorty)
Shorty is an ex-rodeo horse who loves to be fussed over and brushed. He's retired from our therapeutic riding program but he's excelling in our therapeutic horsemanship program!
Colour:Black with white socks
Kairos is the newest horse to come into our program. Although he's a big boy, he's proving to be a gentle giant with anyone around him. Kai doesn't like to work too hard doing things like trotting or cantering unless there are carrots involved!
Texas Hold 'Em (Tex)
Texas is what we call an old soul. It's usually a competition between him and Noble as to who is calmest!Texas has been off this year due to an injury, but he's starting to feel better so we're hoping he'll be back in the program soon!
Winsome Dreamer (Winny)
Age: 17 years
Breed: Clydesdale cross
Winny is a therapeutic riding rockstar! With her calm and quiet nature, she is very eager to please her rider and form a bond with them.
Age: 27 years

Noble is an old pro at therapeutic riding and Equine Assisted Learning. He's been working with our head instructor, Amanda, for seven years now and shows no sign of stopping any time soon!
Funny story: Noble once decided that his part in an EAL session was finished by nudging open the human-sized door and walking through it into the adjoining field!
At The Equine Connection, our horses are team members and play a key role in our sessions. It's important to us that you get to meet the entire team!
