Our horses are the stars players of Manes For Change. They quickly put clients at ease in the pasture with their calming presence. They are good at their job, but sometimes horses need a break for their mental health as well. Here is a list of horses you may meet at Manes For Change, but not all of them may be in the client pasture at the same time. If you don't see a favorite at your sessions, it is because we are giving them a break in the big pasture to reset and come back to continue helping our clients.
This tiny lady is definitely a favorite in the pasture. She is a miniature horse, not a pony. She is about 15 years old and only 30 inches tall, but she is big on personality! She loves to be loved and brushed.
This older gal is a 20 year old pony. She loves to follow horses and people around in the pasture. She is also Jamie's daughter's 4H pony and she goes to the fair every year.
This lovely lady is a 15 year old dun mare. She came to us after a poor living situation and has quickly become a client favorite. She is a super sweet, gentle soul and a real calming presence in the pasture.
She came to us pretty underweight and scarred. She has regained a healthy weight after being here, but she still carries quite a few scars that you will see.
This guy is a 20 year old grade, gray gelding. He is very gentle, but maybe takes a session or two to trust someone new. We are excited to get to know this gentle guy and to see what he can help our clients learn.
This tiny gentleman is such a cutie! He is a miniature paint gelding with the biggest personality. He is currently enjoying a pen with our other mini... our pen of cuteness! He will quickly come up to greet everyone who stops by and will hang around all day for a few well placed scratches on the shoulder or neck.
Our newest mare is a jet black large pony. She is loving all the attention she is receiving here!
This young gelding is 3 years old. He is a real lover and soaks up all of the attention. He is currently living in the Pen of Cuteness with the other big and small horses.
Last up for our horses is this handsome Morgan gelding. He is 18 years old. He is learning to trust and to be more confident approaching people.
