Horses

CTREE program horses are specially trained and provide a variety of gaits and sensory input to accommodate the needs of our riders.

We currently have four program horses, Mosely, Kirolak, Pumpkin and Rocket.

Meet Mosely!

Mosely is a 17 year old Haflinger.  Mosely is very friendly and loves children.

He provides our riders with a strong, broad back that offers security with each steady and smooth stride.

Meet Kirolak!

Kirolak is a 18 year old Argentine Paint.

He has huge, kind eyes, wonderful markings and is a great addition for our more independent riders.

Meet Pumpkin!

Pumpkin came to us from Montauk. He was rescued at auction by his owner. Pumpkin took to his work as a therapy pony like a duck to water and has quickly become a favorite at the barn.

He loves his riders and volunteers and wants to do his best for everyone!

 

Meet Rocket!

Rocket is a 20 year old Quarter Horse. Rocket has a very impressive show record with his owners – he even won ribbons at the Hampton Classic!

These days he is enjoying his new job at CTREE and lots of grass turnout and R & R.
