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.

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 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. Tili will begin driving this fall in the driving program.

Winston is new to us this session and is still trying to find his place.  He is smart, loves attention and has such a smooth gait that he is wonderful to ride. He is sweet and calm, even when unsure, making him a perfect therapy horse.  Winston came to us with arthritis and a history of laminitis, so if you are interested in sponsoring him, we would be grateful.  He will be started on specialized joint medication and provided a special diet.

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.

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.

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.

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 is a little girl with a BIG attitude.  She thinks she is a big horse and is alpha horse in the herd.  Feather has a big job at CHAPS: she is ridden by our youngest clients, spends time in the veteran mental health sessions and travels to nursing homes and the Child Development Center serving clients unable to come to CHAPS.

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, the Child Development Center and the Mountain View Living Center residents this winter and early spring.


We always appreciate the generous donations that come from our community! The CHAPS program couldn't continue with out you and our Horses. If you would like to help sponsor the care, feeding and veterinarian fees for 'one of the guys,' click below or contact us directly!
