Annie is owned by one of
our board members, who is
generously loaning her to Equus
to fill in as needed. We are
lucky to have this great
You can also call her "Miss B." She's an
Icelandic horse who is on lease to us
until September 21, when she'll be a
Special Olympics superstar. She's
going home then, but we hope to
have her back next summer for
our young riders.
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)
This Appaloosa gelding entered
the program in June 2014. He is
proving to be a sturdy, steady guy
who loves his new job. Fizz 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.
The super-sweet Honcho

the summer program riders.
Unfortunately, he has to take
a rest due to a medical
condition. His owner, Kayla,
is making sure he gets the best of care.
Please send good

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.
