You can also call her "Miss B." She's an
Icelandic horse who is on lease to us for the
spring and summer. She stepped right in to
the job, and for our young riders it's love at
Elvis is "the King" of the Equus program.
He's the most versatile of our horses
and takes care of everyone from our
beginners to our most advanced riders.
Fizzbomb (aka Fizz or Fizzy)
He's here! This Appaloosa gelding
is proving to be a sturdy, steady guy
a walk, and is catching on to his new
job quickly. He enjoys attention, and
is just the right size for little kids,
big kids, and grown-ups too.
Thank you to Dianna and Tracie, Equus
volunteers whose generous donations
allowed us to purchase Fizz.
Honcho is the newest addition to the
Equus herd, on lease to us from his
owner, who works at Wedgewood.
He's a gentle giant who is sweet-
natured and easygoing on the leadline.
Our great pony Magic officially retired on June 30, 2014. He is now a companion to one other horse, owned by a longtime friend of Equus. He is living at a little private farm, where he gets to hang out in a grassy paddock and just take it easy.
We have started a scholarship fund in Magic's honor. Anyone who contributes a minimum of $50 to the fund will receive a 20-page hardbound book, written for children and filled with photos of Magic. To contribute to the fund, contact us by clicking here.
Also, thank you to the Berkshire Carousel, which has honored Magic by making a horse in his likeness!
We are currently looking for another horse to add to the program. We can accept a donation, or we can take a horse on a full or partial free lease. If you know of a sound, well-mannered horse, ideally between the ages of 8 and 15 (but older horses in good health also considered), please email us by clicking here.
