Pumpkin is a beautiful red dun quarter horse who was donated to our program due to navicular disease. He is small and stocky making him a great Hippotherapy horse! He has always been one of our "go to" horses for new and young clients because it is impossible not to trust him. He now just carries young kids and very light riders. It seems that he prefers this since he is a kid’s horse through and through and engages much more with them than with adults.
Pumpkin is a sweet horse who is very curious and enjoys his Mental Health Therapy sessions with young people. He loves to play with toys and obstacles that the clients bring into the arena. Pumpkin is a permanent resident here and will continue helping clients with his infectious confidence and love.
