Anyone who has spent time around horses knows they embody a quiet wisdom and natural curiosity. Along with the physical pleasure of learning to ride a horse comes the emotional connection to a nonjudgmental and loving friend.
Miniature horses – Daisy and Lulu were some of the first horses to be a part of our program.
Our third miniature horse addition, Sonny came to us last summer! Sonny is very good with the children, and thoroughly enjoys his job of pulling a cart!
Recently we’ve added two miniature Mediterranean donkeys named Snickers and Candy – they have the best personalities and bring much laughter to our lives!
All of our mini’s play dress up with the kids during camps, get painted and taken on parade often! They are also part of our community outreach programs with the elderly when they come to visit. This crew really is Dreamhaven’s little angels in horse hair.
Jimmy is a 22 year old Multi Colored Paint. He is the all-around favorite at the ranch. He came to us a sore, exhausted horse with little or no personality but has blossomed into a multi-talented horse. His talents range from trail riding, hunter hack jumping to being a calm lesson horse for the kids. Jimmy can have a bit of a tude from time to time and with that comes his “look”, which says a lot about his unique personality.
Winston is an 11 year old Morgan Chocolate Palomino. Everyone loves this handsome boy! He has a big personality and loves to be in the middle of everything. This is the first season that the kids have ridden him. He is doing pretty well with an occasional “Winston Moment”. He is an amazing therapy horse as he is so funny & amusing but he is very sensitive and intuitive to the people around him.
Smoke’m is a 13 year old Bay Overo Paint. He is one of the newer horses that have now found his place at the ranch. He is a very handsome boy with a big heart. He’s a pretty calm dude. He has won many ribbons showing with his previous owner, so you could say he is a winner who also loves to run!
Ransom is an 18 year old Missouri fox trotter. This means he is gaited. He loves when he gets the chance to be groomed by all the kids here at the ranch. He certainly is a handsome guy with a beautiful heart.
Virgil is a 22 year old Arabian/quarter horse. This guy has lots of get up and go for his age. He is so sweet and thoughtful to everyone out here at the ranch. He is enjoying his new role out at Dreamhaven and has a special heart for the kids.
Gotcha has been a fabulous addition to our program! He is a purebred Paso Fino, and he is world champion in multiple disciplines. Gotcha takes his new job at Dreamhaven very seriously, and takes great care of his riders.
