Gracie – I was adopted by Gabby in spring of 2016. I began my training for Hippotherapy in 2016 with my first session in May 2017. I love seeing the kids, getting loved on, being told I’m pretty and watching their progress every week. I also enjoy eating grass and annoying my siblings. My other hobbies include trail riding, chasing the barn cat and getting massages.
Gus – Hi guys, my name is Gus! I was adopted by Gabby in December of 2017 and have been a vital part of our hippotherapy sessions since March of 2018. Prior to living with Gabby, I was a lesson horse where I worked with numerous children to help them learn to ride. Although I am on the larger side, I have a big soft heart and tend to be picked on by my tiny brother Bo. I love all of my siblings but most of all I love kids, especially when I get hugs, and have been known to give soft kisses.
Trixie – Hey y’all, Trixie here!!! Or sometimes I go by “Big Mamma”. I am as sweet as a Georgia Peach and as round as one too. I was adopted by Gabby in October of 2018 and started with the program in January 2019. I love being in the program and helping out all the kids. My favorite hobby is EATING!!! If I had my way I would eat all day long, grass is my favorite, but I do enjoy a peppermint or two. Most people don’t realize that I have a sweet birthmark on my right eye. My mom has to take special care of me, but I don’t let it get in the way of living my best life.
Bo – Hi, my name is Bo. I might be the smallest out of all my siblings, but I have the biggest heart and think I am the tallest. Everyone tells me I have a puppy dog personality; I do like to snuggle and give lots of kisses. I am very sweet to all my people friends, but I do like to pick on my siblings and chase them around the pasture. I think it’s funny. 😄 When I am not working with kids, I like to jump and play in the water with my mom.
