“Horses change lives. They give our young people confidence and self-esteem. They provide peace and tranquility to troubled souls. They give us hope!” ~Toni Robinson
Things to Consider When Donating a Horse
Being a therapeutic riding and equine assisted activity horse is a physically, emotionally, and mentally challenging job! These horses need to be sound at the walk, trot, and lope. The best Cadence horses have good manners, and are easy to work with on the ground and in the saddle. They do not mind being handled and approached by different people, they will not be bothered by sudden shifts in movement or unusual noises, and they enjoy learning something new. Cadence horses need to be comfortable being led with a rider in the saddle and accept one or two sidewalkers (one person on each side of the horse assisting the rider) while walking and trotting during lessons.
Some of our best horses have come from good people who have allowed us to adopt their beloved family members so they can be loved and adored by our clients and help those of us in need. To begin the process of donating a horse to Cadence, please contact Ron Tyner at firstname.lastname@example.org or at 970-749-0607.
