Horses are truly magical animals. They have patience, understanding, trusting and unconditional acceptance of who we are. That being said, our horses in the equine assisted activities and therapy program are extra special!!! These trusty equines demonstrate those special traits during every encounter and lesson. They make the humans feel special!
Sonny is a 30 year old retired OTTB. He had 104 starts in 10 years of racing followed with 10 years as a trail horse. He joins our team and loves giving young riders a great experience.
Sonny was featured in Thoroughbred Daily News. Click here for the story.
Frankie is a 19 year old Standardbred who realized racing wasn't for him. He has over twelve years of driving experience and is happy to be the lead horse for the Alfred Z Solomon Veterans Program.
Please Consider Adoption if You Want to Get a Horse
Did you know that Sonny was originally being fostered at Nipper Knolls Equine Center before it was determined he would be a great team member for our program? Prior to Sonny, we fostered other horses who were adopted to great forever families. All of these horses were from Easy Street Rescue. Nipper Knolls is a foster and training partner with Easy Street Rescue.
