Fill out our HORSE DONATION FORM.
Owner / donor must agree to a 90-day TRIAL PERIOD. The horse will be boarded at our facility while its suitability for our programs is evaluated. During this trial period, the horse will be exposed to therapy equipment, mounting blocks, walkers, wheelchairs, toys, balls, sidewalkers, leaders, loud noises, sudden movements, unbalanced riding weight, and applied pressure on all parts of the body. The horse's body language and reactions will be noted and graded.

Sunshine would love nothing more than to babysit all the little humans. Her other favorite thing is scratching her belly in the warm summer grass while she grazes laying down. She is a big mover which provides a lot of input to clients. She is also the boss of the entire Strides herd. Sunshine had one baby when she was younger named Oreo.
