Meet Our Horses


DOB: 1/10/10 I joined the herd on 12/31/15.  I am a Morgan Cross Sorrel Mare.  Mama Gwen thinks I spook easy but, Mr. Tony is going to help me with that when he puts me in his training program.


DOB: 6/01/06 I joined the herd in 2012 after being donated to Horses for Hope. I’m sure glad my previous owner donated me because they couldn’t care for me and I was in bad health, but mama Gwen Gwen got me healthy again.


DOB: 7/01/13 I joined the herd in 2013 when I was about 6 months old.  I am a black and white Welsh Pony/Paint Cross Gelding with a very sweet nature.  After my training, I hope to make a good lesson pony.


DOB: 1/01/10 I think I joined the herd in 2014.  My previous owner donated me to Horses for Hope so I could help people. I am a blue roan miniature gelding.


DOB: 1/18/13 I joined the herd in 2013. I am a registered PtHA Halflinger/Paint gelding.  Mr. Tony has me in his training program right now and I’m learning a lot of cool stuff.  I think he’s planning on riding me soon.


DOB: 5/01/99 I joined the herd in 2004 and was one of the first miniature horses here.  I’m so glad there are more like me now so I can have someone to play with.  I am a miniature sorrel gelding.  About ten years ago I helped this little girl learn to read and to not […]


Cooper was a rescue in reverse!  This miniature horse was extremely obese when he came to us in the summer of 2016.  He was also a crypt-orchid stallion which is a condition that takes over $1,000 to correct when castrating and NCSU Vet Hospital took him on as a teaching project for the kids in […]


DOB: 5/01/92 I was born at Horses for Hope in 1992.  I am a Quarter pony and Sox is my dad.  I was the second therapy horse here and I’m still being used for therapeutic riding and able bodied lessons.  I like it when I get a beginner rider on my back in lessons because […]


DOB: 1/01/19 Joined the herd in 2016.  I am a large miniature appaloosa gelding.  They named me Domino because the black dots on my white coat make me look like a domino.


DOB: 1-1-2002  Ellie joined the HfH herd in December 2017.  She was bought at auction and came from Alabama.  She was a ranch horse much like Toby.  She is a beautiful bay with 4 white socks.  We hope she will be a great addition to our programs.  


DOB: 5/02/14 I was born at Horses for Hope. I am an APHA registered Sorrel Tobiano Gelding and I am Stormy & Titan’s big brother.  Mama Gwen Gwen has me in training right now.  I can’t wait to be as good as Titan is.


DOB: 1/01/04 I joined the herd in 2008.  I am a Quarter pony, light palomino gelding.  Mama Gwen Gwen says I’m her best lesson pony.  I’m really proud of that, if anybody thinks they are going to be a better lesson pony than me they better get ready to work hard.


DOB: 1/01/02 I joined the herd in 2014. Mama Gwen Gwen bought me at the auction.  I used to be a trail horse and I am a paint draft mix tri-colored mare.  They named me Liberty because I’m big like the Statue of Liberty and I help people by being a therapy horse.


A Little Too Much aka “Lilbit” is an APHA registered tobiano bay Paint.  He joined the herd on 11/11/18.  He is a big boned horse that has been a trail horse as well as a lesson horse.  We think he will also be a terrific therapeutic riding horse too.


DOB: 1/01/10 I joined the herd in 2013 as a donation.  I am a miniature sorrel blanket appaloosa gelding.  One of my favorite things to do here at Horses for Hope is summer camps.  It’s really fun working with the kids and teaching them about horses.


Pete joined the HfH herd in December 2017.  He is an unregistered paint horse and was 7 years old when purchased at an auction house.  We are retraining him to become a therapy and lesson horse.


DOB: 1/01/10 I joined the herd in 2014 as a donation.  I am a miniature appaloosa gelding – see my spots?  Sometimes I get to out for public appearances.  I really like meeting all the people.


DOB: 5/11/10 I joined the herd in 2014 after being donated and I’m am miniature buckskin paint gelding.  I am teaching these two girls that are sisters how to train horses.  There names are Lindsey and Olivia.  I bet they didn’t realize that I know their names.


DOB: 1/01/13 I joined the herd in December 2016 and I’m a Appaloosa / Mustang mix gelding.   I didn’t have much training when I came to Horses for Hope and didn’t have much respect for people.  I escaped on Christmas day and probably covered 4 – 5 miles before they caught me.  Man let […]


DOB: 3/13/13 I was born at Horses for Hope and I love it here. I am a PtHA registered Halflinger/Paint gelding.  When I was about six months old I got into some Fire-ants and they really stung my front legs bad.  Mr. Tony tried to catch me so he could wash my legs with cool […]

DOB: 5/30/98 I joined the herd in 2004 after being donated by a miniature horse breeder.  I had a severe front leg injury and was only able to use 3 legs so my prior owner was going to euthanize me but Gwen felt she could rehab me so one day I could walk on 4 […]


DOB: 1/01/07 I joined the herd in 2015.  I am a grey paint cross mare.  One of the coolest things I’ve done here at Horses for Hope was to work with this guy who is a recovering drug addict.  I really enjoyed helping him in his recovery.  He’s moved on now and I really miss […]


DOB: 4/11/99 I joined the herd in 2000.  I am an AQHA registered sorrel mare.  Mama Gwen Gwen won me in an internet horse giveaway.  I’m glad my previous owner donated me to the giveaway because I love it here at Horses for Hope.  Did you know I am the third therapy horse to be used […]


DOB: 4/11/06 I joined the herd in 2011 after being donated. I was almost dead from starvation when I came to Horses for Hope.  I’m soooo glad to be here and to have plenty to eat, thank you mama Gwen Gwen for nursing me back to health.  I do have one question though, why did […]

DOB: 2/01/86 I am an AQHA bay gelding and was the first therapy horse here in 2004.  Before I became a gelding I had a son named Diablo, he lives here at Horses for Hope with me.  Mama Gwen Gwen bought me when I was five years old and taught me how to barrel race. […]


Spirit joined the HfH herd in the summer of 2017.  He is a cute bay strawberry roan medium/large Welsh pony.

DOB: 5/24/14 I was born at Horses for Hope. I am an APHA registered sorrel tobiano gelding.  When I was being born I got stuck and my mom couldn’t get me all of the way out so Mr. Tony grabbed my front leg and pulled me the rest of the way out.  Boy was I glad […]
