Our Horses

The historic bond between humans and horses has developed and evolved over the past 3,500 years. Today, our specially trained therapy horses partner with our clients in physical, social and emotional programs. They are trusted and trusting, specifically chosen for their forgiving attitude, and are well-schooled for their task. The bond developed between our clients and the horses is one of the lifetime benefits of participation in the Strongwater program.  Horses have a natural way of entering in to one’s life or soul when a person works with these magnificent animals.

King & Twinkle

These two Gentle Giants are leased out to our program for the next 5 years from a wonderful home that taught excellent manners under-saddle and on the ground.

At first glance they will take your breath away with their size and sweet, gentle personalities.

Both of these horses are super connected to one another and love to give back scratches. If you catch them outside in the late morning they both take naps enjoying the sun together.

The Dynamic Duo love their new home here at Strongwater and we are excited to have them with us!
