Tink, our Minature is the sweetest little horse
and the ideal companion for very young children participating in our
broke to ride. In fact, she has been used to children riding her
for several years now. Youn members of our family started riding her when
they were just two-year olds. One little boy who rode tink
declared he was going to get Tink and ride around "to save the world".
Today, there is a growing trend to
train miniatures as assistance animals for people with
disabilities. Their life span on average is longer than larger
breeds of horses and certainly longer than dogs used in the
capacity of service animals. Miniatures also make good
Mostly because of their small size and temperament it makes sense
that miniatures would appeal to children, but it is surprising how
many youth and adults feel extremely comfortable with minatures.
Featuring Tink and Gorgeous George
Gorgeous George is a great horse, with exceptional disposition.
Quiet and willing he has
demonstrated on several diverse occasions how good he is with people
of all ages or level of difficulty. He is a Tennessee Walking
Horse which means he has a smooth rhythmic gait allowing the
rider a level of comfort not found in other breeds.
George is very careful with young inexperienced riders and has been
an integral part of our therapy programs as well as riding lessons.
We have yet to have George show us any bad habits and find he syncs
with every rider or companion in any environment.
When George was young we had thought to sell him, but he proved
himself so versatile, accommodating and gentle we decided to use him
exclusively in our programs.
