Morning Dove’s horses are pretty special — carefully selected based on their gentle temperament, size, movement, health and overall fit with our riders’ needs. Each horse that comes to Morning Dove goes through an extended trial period to assess their fit for this special type of work. It is a very special horse that becomes part of the Morning Dove team!
Our horses are well cared for with extensive pastures to graze, comfortable stalls and lots of love and attention from our staff and volunteers! Therapy horses receive special attention to keep them healthy and happy as therapy horses, including exercise, appropriate nutrition/supplements, farrier work, vacations, and the best veterinary care.
Our horses are the heroes of our program – friend, partner and therapist to us all!
