Program horses are the heroes who make lifetime differences in children and adults who are mentally, physically, and/or emotionally disabled. They are the “heart and soul” of the program. Many of our horses had previous careers as eventers, show hunters, endurance competitors, and reiners. They are good-natured and can accommodate a range of rider sizes and skill levels. Once a horse becomes part of the program, the horse is part of the program for life. If a horse is no longer able to support a rider due to illness, injury or age, he will join the ranks of “retired” FC4HTRP horses and will be cared for by the program for the rest of his life.
