At 13.2 hands, Dixie is the perfect pony. A flashy, gray pinto mare, she is balanced and quiet with lots of personality. She is a fantastic hippotherapy pony and perfect for our smaller riders. A veteran of the horse show circuit, Dixie knows her job and does it with grace.
A redhead with a big personality, Reba is QH mare. At a sturdy, 15.1 hands she is a great size for large or small riders, can be ridden independently and does great on the lead. Such a reliable girl!
Every equine assisted services program needs a Stella. She does everything well and is unflappable. Independent riders can canter her, and new riders can safely be left to figure out steering with Stella.
Posie (Mariposa) is a 2008 Arab/Andalusian cross. She has an energetic walk – great movement for our hippotherapy participants – and a lovely, smooth trot that makes learning sitting trot a dream for our adaptive riders.
A draft cross, Jimmy is 16.1 hands tall and loves to be groomed. He is an ex-Amish horse who mostly pulled farm equipment before coming to Simple Changes. Jimmy was trained to work in blinders – which help to cut out visual distractions – so he continues to wear them at Simple Changes. Keeps his head in the game and he looks so dashing!
Handsome is as handsome does. Stetson is quite the handsome Golden
Palomino and a wonderful lesson horse. He is a thoroughbred/Welsh
Cob cross and a retired dressage horse. We are delighted to have him
in our herd.
Thanks to our friend Dr. Maria Lukowski, Dori is the newest member of our herd. She was born as a PMU foal and raised by Dr. Maria. A Jill of all trades, Dori can go Western pleasure, hunter, dressage and is a boss mare on the trail. Everyone loves Dori.
Bluebells, aka Bells, is the heart and soul of our Equines and Elders program. The participants have been helping to train her to stand still for petting and grooming. Bells loves to walk along wheelchairs and visit with all friends that visit the farm.
