Good manners, an easy-going attitude, and patience are some of the qualities that we look for in our therapy horses. We take great care in selecting just the right horses for our program. Each horse goes through a stringent trial and training period before they are accepted. Currently more than 35 highly trained therapy horses call Fieldstone Farm home. Their breeds include Quarter horses, Haflingers, Appaloosas, Norwegian Fjord, Welsh ponies, miniatures, Holsteiners, Drafts, Paints and Thoroughbreds, among many others.

“Our horses are so amazing. I have seen them sense a student’s anxiety and gently put their nose on the rider’s shoulder to build an initial trust with that person. These horses not only know that they are helping our riders, they want to.”
