Buster is a 26 year old American Quarter Horse. He’s a curious gelding who does very well with grooming and on lead. He does best with intermediate riders when he’s not on lead, because he likes to be spunky and have fun! Buster’s best friend is Blackberry and he enjoys turnout time as he has entered his semi-retirement phase of life.
Bo is a 14 year old Percheron x Standardbred. He is a gentle giant who is great for beginner- intermediate riders. He has some spunky left in him and loves to have attention. He is best friends with Teddy and is unhappy when he has to leave him some days.
Blackberry is 26 year old American Quarter Horse cross Morgan Horse. He is best suited for a more advanced rider who builds a trusting relationship with him if you want to work hard. However he is also a great guy for the beginner lead line kids and loves to play games! Blackberry is best friends with Buster and is enjoying his semi-retirement life too.

Our friends who have passed on
Happy and Bonnie were our tried and true leadline ponies. In 2022 their laminitis got the best of them and we humanely euthanized them to end their suffering.
Dakota was the star therapy horse of Healing Horse Stables. He’s was a 35 year old Morgan gelding, dark bay in winter and a lighter color when his coat gets lightened in the summer sun. With beginning riders, Dakota was so sensitive to the rider’s balance and needs that he’ll move to stay solid underneath them. He was calm and smart, knows his voice commands and radiates warmth to all–people and horses alike. In the winter, his coat is very thick and fuzzy, and he looks even more like what we always call him: a teddy horse. Dakota passed due to a severe colic episode and will be severely missed by many.
Gabriel was an amazing baby but due to a very resistant infection and immune difficulties we lost him at the young age of 3 years old. He was started undersaddle before his passing and was one of the best and easiest horses. Some of our clients were able to visit and ride him before his passing. He will dearly be missed as he was such a lovable boy.
Flash was a 28year old Impressive bred American Quarter Horse. Flash has been a tried and true lesson horse during his time here. Flash was diagnosed with an incurable squamous small cell carcinoma last year. He lived out his days being loved on and fed treats and continued to teach little ones how to ride. The cancer took over his body early January 2017 leaving the farm with the hard decision for quality of life. He will always be remembered as the sweet boy that he was.
Knight was a Friesian, a sweet gentleman who was slowly putting on much-needed weight. He was patient and careful on lead and with beginner riders. Sometimes on trail rides he decided he had gone far enough away from the barn and as soon as you would agree with him, he would head calmly and happily back to be with his horse friends.
