Each of Equi-Ed's horses are specially selected and tested extensively before entering the program. Take a look below to learn more about our super-star horses and learn about their breeds.
Tooey, a mustang, is a gentle giant and joker all rolled into one. His personality warms hearts and brings a smile to all who meet him.
The Mustang is a free-roaming feral horse of the North American west that first descended from horses brought to the Americas by the Spanish. In 1971, the United States Congress recognized Mustangs as "living symbols of the historic and pioneer spirit of the West, which continue to contribute to the diversity of life forms within the Nation and enrich the lives of the American people."
Charlotte is a Welsh/Shetland pony and the newest member of Equi-Ed's herd. She's small in size and big in heart.
Welsh ponies originated in Wales are known for their good temperament, hardiness, and free-moving gaits. Shetland ponies are hardy and strong, in part because the breed developed in the harsh conditions of the Shetland Isles. In appearance, Shetlands have small heads, a short, muscular neck, a compact, stocky body and short, strong legs.
Karma is a gentle chestnut grade mare. She is very social, both with people, and her horse pals. She is the newest addition to the program.
Mike is a happy and handsome Haflinger. A horse of many talents, Mike rides and drives, and has been in parades, shows, and even an endurance event.
Haflinger horses are relatively small, are always chestnut in color, have distinctive gaits described as energetic but smooth, and are well-muscled yet elegant. The breed traces its ancestry to the Middle Ages, and there are several theories for the breed's origin. Haflingers were developed for use in mountainous terrain, and are known for their hardiness.
