Meet our horses.
It’s the horse’s love that makes a dramatic step in the healing journey. We believe that horses give us an legitimacy as therapists because maybe people can begin to trust us as therapists more as we take good care of the horses. What we see is a beautiful chorus of love that occurs of trust and safety for clients to heal and it’s also a win-win situation for the horses as they get love and attention all day long.
Maggie is 34 and has provided so much love and care to so many people during her life. Maggie started off as Dr Swim’s daugher’s pet horse. Maggie was a show jumper and was known for her speed. She is an integral part of the team. People love walking Maggie around the ranch and she is known for her gentleness and her shaggy hair.
Maggie probably gives the best hugs of all the horses there and one person described Maggie as “a wise, gentle horse who is always in the moment with me.”
Maggie loves being petted on her neck and loves carrots.
Jack is a big, friendly and gentle horse who will wait patiently for everyone. He will look into your eyes with love and provide a sense of calmness and reassurance to everyone he meets. Jack and Maggie have a special connection and are best friends. They cannot be separated or they get upset. They look out for each other and ensure they are both ok just like best friends do.
Our baby horse Oliver he is our mischief maker and an escape artist. He has been known to untie gates and run free alongside us. He has so much love to give with lots of joy in his eyes. He has the biggest smile and loves his mama Theresa so very much.
Theresa is sometimes confused for a pony as she is small. She is 20 and she was saved by Dr Swim when she was pregnant with Oliver. Theresa is a caring mother of Oliver (2). Theresa and Oliver often cuddle into each other and they have more love to offer to everyone that comes to the ranch. Theresa enjoys eating apples and gets so excited when she sees or smells an apple.
