Horses

Sabre
Donated by Pat Creswell
Sponsored by Cloud Peak Energy & 3C Total Feed Dealer

Sabre is the kindest horse I have ever met. There is nothing he won't do for you and will do it with grace, patience and dignity. Sabre is broke to the lift, attends all events including the Sheridan WYO Rodeo, Special Olympics and Tractor Supply Co. demonstrations.  



Bear 
Donated by Homer Jr and Janet Scott Family Foundation

Bear is a small horse with the biggest personality. This smart and playful pony has come a long way in his three years with us and we will continue to expect great things from him. Bear is not sponsored, but would love to have one to call his own.

Dennis
Donated by Trinity Glasscock
Sponsored by Dan & Jeanne Scott Foundation

Dennis is a veteran of the program having been with us the longest. He has the equine version of diabetes and normally looks like he is pregnant. This year, we think we found the trick to controlling his weight which means he is healthier and enjoying life much more than before. 

 

 

Tilli
Leased from Brett & Ashley Johnson

Sponsored by Cordilleran Environmental Consulting, Inc.

Tilli is our biggest horse weighing in about 1600 lbs. He is a giant teddy bear and loves attention. Tilli prefers to work with at-risk youth, but also enjoys veterans on a one-on-one basis. Group work is too much for this sensitive guy.  

Woody 
Donated by Dr. Jeffrey Wray, D.D.S.

Woody is a playful guy with a funny little tongue quirk. He likes to hold his tongue in his teeth. Woody has a smooth step and narrow body making him ideal for clients with limited flexibility. He is kind, but lacks confidence in himself. Woody prefers lessons in which he has a leader so he can borrow confidence from the leader. This winter, Woody will go to school with Stephanie from Diamond J Natural Horsemanship to learn some confidence and a few more skills. Woody is not sponsored at this time.

 

Cody
Donated by US Forest Service
Sponsored by Spring Creek Mine

Cody is on his second career, having been a US Forest Service mount in the Big Horn Mountains. He is a solid horse with plenty of go, but his steady attitude and laid back demeanor make him a great horse to work with. Cody has advanced arthritis in his knees, but thanks to his sponsor, he is more comfortable on the specialized joint medication.



Ped
Donated by Kelly Schriebies Memorial Foundation.
Sponsored by Wayne & Sherry Buck

Ped is our all-around guy. He rides, drives and LOVES the veteran sessions. He is a sweet boy with a big heart and even bigger appetite. Ped enjoys his job and does all of it well.

 

 

Lynx
Donated by Lohse Family 

Lynx is a fun horse who knows when to go and when to be slow. He suffers from COPD (asthma). Last summer was especially hard on Lynx with all the smoke from the wildfires, but now he has improved considerably. Lynx is not sponsored, but would very much like to be!

Sampson 
Donated by Kathi Barker
Sponsored by Tom & Trink Morss

Sampson continues to work with veterans teaching them to ride well. He is particularly fond of trail rides and looks forward to going out. Sampson has advanced arthritis which sometimes slows him down, but mostly he is comfortable now, thanks to specialized arthritis medication.

    

Sureen
Leased from Bruce & Teresa Davidson

This little mare has been a great addition to the team. She rides and drives, but prefers to be driven. She loves to go and has been such a great teacher for everyone who works with her. Though she lacks patience, she makes up for it with grace and agility.


Feather 
Leased from Diana Christensen
 

Feather is a little girl with a BIG attitude.  She thinks she is a big horse and is alpha horse in the herd.  She enjoys attention and will be visiting the Veteran's Home of WY and Mountain View Living Center this winter and early spring.  


 



Chachi
Leased from Jonalee Watkins

Chachi is a "horse in a pony's body," according to his mom. He is very laid back, easy to handle and seems to enjoy our company. Chachi will be visiting the Veteran's Home of Wyoming and the Mountain View Living Center residents this winter and early spring.
