Breezie

Likes: Horse Cookies and attention from her NARHA friends
Birthday: 03/16
Training: Riding & driving
Favorite Moment: Breezie has a special bond with one of our participants. One day she saw her friend walk up the mounting ramp while she was waiting for her turn. Much to everyone’s amazement, Breezie decided to untie herself and “set-up” over at the ramp and wait for her friend to get on!
 
Saphire

Gender: Mare
Likes: Apple flavored “lick-it” horse candies & going driving on trails

Daisy    
Breed: Falabella Miniature

 Easy

Gender: Mare
Likes: To make her “Honey-Bunny” face to ask for her favorite thing (apples)
Birthday: 03/17

 Jaz  
Breed: Appalossa
Gender: Mare
Likes: Her best friend Max & attention
Birthday: 03/04

Favorite Moment: Jaz was always a lonely horse until she met Max. Jaz has also become protective of Max when it comes to the other horses and makes sure she is close by.
 
 
 Gray
Breed: American Quarter Horse
Gender: Gelding
Likes: His busy toy next to his stall and performing tricks for peppermint candies
Birthday: 02/14
Training: Riding
Favorite Moment: If there was ever a horse with a sense of humor it would be Gray. He likes to solve “puzzles” like how to unlock the gate so he can get out or how to turn the water faucet on/off next to his stall. His smooth gates and bravery have allowed us many years of showing and trail riding in addition to NARHA.
 
 
 Thor
Breed: Paint
Gender: Gelding
Likes: To be brushed and to play the Parelli 7 Games
Birthday: 06/24
Training: Riding
Favorite Moment: Thor was born here on the farm and is Max’s son. Many participants have been able to watch him grow and learn. His willingness and good nature make us sure that he will be a great horse for the program in the near future.
 
 
 Max  
Breed: Paint
Gender: Mare
Likes: Her best friend Jaz & bossing her room mate Cocoa around
Birthday: 05/08
Training: Riding & Driving
Favorite Moment: Max has been a good friend to Jaz and has given us Thor. She is now a wonderful driving horse and has become one of our star NARHA horses with her steady way of going and her smooth gates. She is hard to miss with her red and white overo coat pattern.
 
 
Cocoa

 Turbo

Favorite Moment: Turbo is the sweetest pony we have ever had the pleasure of working with. He has been an excellent student as we get him ready to be a full time carriage pony. He currently is pulling the custom designed Red Hawk marathon carriage. His big heart and disposition make him an ideal partner for our NARHA participants.

A Little About Our Horses
We are very fortunate to have ten wonderful equines as part of our program. In addition to serving as therapeutic riding and driving mounts, they also are part of the Animal Science program for MapleStone School. MapleStone Farm LLC and MapleStone, the school , help to support the therapy program. Unfortunately,this support alone is not enough to cover all the expenses directly associated with operating and maintaining the NAHRA program. In- kind donations to the MapleStone School (a Not-for-Profit 501 c 3) in the way of feed and bedding are greatly appreciated and help the MapleStone School work with MapleStone Farm to offer free and reduced cost therapeutic riding and driving to individuals outside of the MapleStone School. Horses are provided to the school for the cost of maintenance. To find more information on donating, please see our Donations page.
 
We offer a “Sponsor a Horse Program” where an individual, organization or Corporation can sponsor one of the NARHA program horses by making a $2500.00 donation, the maintenance cost. The donation will be used solely to help support the health and well-being of your equine partner. Your donation grants access to our monthly news letter and annual reports on the horse you sponsor. We encourage sponsors to take advantage of our complimentary offer by posting information about themselves, their business or organization on the Supporters page.
 
Please find a brief profile below on each of our equine friends here at MapleStone Farm.
