Adopt Me!

Feather

I'm the newest member of the herd. I'm petite and have a sweet spot if you scratch my neck near my poll i'll duck down and be so delighted. My roan coloring changes some with the seasons. My birthday is May 9, 2011 so I'm a Taurus which are known for being steadfast and wise but I do look for support from my human companions. 

Miss America

Greetings, I'm Miss America and I am a retired show pony. I'm petite and gray and like being a diva. When I'm on my tip-toes I can see out my back window. Pony parties are one of my favorite activities because I am very sensitive to riders needs. My talents are versatile too because I help with hippotherapy and therapeutic riding. Another fun fact is that I'm the oldest in the barn. 

Patches

Howdy, I'm a registered paint horse that loves to whinny and neigh. I'm a chatter-box and am always talking and making my riders laugh. I grew up doing western horse shows but now I work with our therapeutic riders. A fun fact about me is that my eyes are two different colors!

Pumpkin

Hi, my name is Pumpkin and I'm guessing I was named that cause I do kinda look like a Pumpkin -- chestnut and very round. While I might look rotund and I walk a little funny from an old injury, I used to be quite the polo pony and can still keep up with the others just fine. I'm sweet as can be, and my favorite thing on earth is cuddling up to humans. I'm super excited to start my new career as a therapy horse and can't wait to meet all of you! 

Zorro

My name's Zorro, I'm a welsh morgan cross that works in the therapeutic program. While I'm a little on the round side, I've heard that sitting on my back is like sitting on a couch. While I used to teach kids in the school program, now that I'm getting on in years my smooth gaits make me a favorite for hippotherapy clients.

Flash

My birthday is 5/1/2002 but I'm wise beyond my years. I've been told I'm one of the chillest, sweetest horses in the stable. I guess that's true, nothing bothers me. Calm as I am when I'm on the job, I still like to think that I've got a big personality. Everyone always laughs at the funny faces I like to make when I'm out and about, and I love seeing what other people are doing. I'm technically a paint but you can barely see my one spot on my barrel. I also have a bald face and flaxen mane and tail. . 

Matisse

I'm a little chestnut gelding that's been at CHP for almost a decade. As a naturally energetic horse, the heat doesn't really affect me. That makes me really popular with the instructors during the summer. I'm also able to teach a wide variety of students, from therapeutic riders to some of our most advanced teenagers. 

Willow

Hi, my name's Willow and I do a lot of jobs around here. I'm only ten years old but I've got the mind of an older horse. I'm patient, thoughtful, and quiet so I'm perfect for everyone to learn on -- both in our lessons program and therapeutic program.

Libby

My name's Lady Liberty, but you can call me Libby. I'm a Morgan, one of the first American horse breeds, and we're known for being smart and strong (if a bit on the short side). I'm great at teaching because I always make sure my riders are paying attention. 

Dakota

I'm a welsh pony cross mare that embodies the saying "great things come in small packages." My big personality is a good match for more energetic riders. I do several jobs around CHP and can help teach many different types of riders. 

Tonka

I'm a 15-year-old palomino gelding with wisdom beyond my years. I can always tell what level of rider I have on my back, and I make sure to treat them accordingly. While I've been involved with both the therapeutic program and the lesson program over the years, I've decided to focus on lesson program recently. 

Snap

I'm a 15 hand paint mare and probably the most affectionate horse, at least in my opinion. I like working with older children and adults who always talk with me. My favorite part of lessons are the games we play with different toys.

Nigel

Good Day-I'm a world calibur AQHA horse and came to CHP to retire from the show ring and have a new purpose. I have 100's of points, multiple AQHA all around winner titles and show all over the USA and Canafa. My show name is Jacie Ole, and while I don't show anymore I'm still quite the pleasure to get to know and go by "Nigel". Not only do I have nice smooth gaits under saddle, I also love people -- especially kids -- and am always happy to see our riders and volunteers. ​

Rebel

Like most of my friends here, I'm also a registered quarter horse gelding. Despite my name, I'm a pretty laid back guy, and not at all rebellious. That's because I have the best job in the barn. I get to wear a comfortable western saddle and go on regular sensory trail rides. 

You can help make a difference in people's lives as they heal through horses.

Each year, our Therapeutic Programs provide more than 5,200  life-changing sessions to our riders.  Accomplishing this requires the support of volunteers to fill the 225 volunteer-hour slots each WEEK.

Serving ages 2 to 80, our programs are dedicated to empowering and healing our riders physically, mentally and emotionally.
