Our Horses

Pony Power Therapies began nearly 15 years ago with little more than a dream and MAT. Sadly, Mat passed away in November of 2011 and is truly missed.

…or “Butter,” is a thirteen-year-old Welsh Pony that just recently came to Pony Power from Sheer Chance Stables in Honey Brook, PA. Soon after meeting her, our instructors knew she’d make a wonderful addition to our team. Not only does Butter’s short and narrow build easily accommodate some of our smallest riders but her calm and gentle demeanor make her a perfect therapeutic riding pony. Plus, Butter loves to “talk” to everyone on the farm and often greets her riders and their families with a friendly whinny.

 

Big Rascal

is a large, breathtaking registered Buckskin Quarter Horse. He came to us with a trail riding background, making his calm disposition a great fit for horse-assisted activities. Big Rascal has been a big hit within our veterans and therapeutic riding programs. As one who suffers from allergies all summer long, Big Rascal loves nothing more than to be groomed daily to help satisfy his itch.

Bugsy

Bugsy Headshotis a black, English Riding Pony who came to therapeutic riding after many years as a children’s eventing pony.  His movement is lively and animated, which gives his riders a lot of sensory input. Bugsy is a very sweet and affectionate pony. He usually responds with a nicker when his name is called.  He loves apples, carrots, peppermints and – most importantly – children. With his thick black coat, white star and sweet disposition, he is often compared to Black Beauty.

CC

is very special. He was purchased by a local family and donated to Pony Power for the sole purpose of being a therapy horse. It was months after CC had been a member of the Pony Power team before we realized his amazing talent. CC can sense if his rider will have a seizure before there is any sign of it. A usually forward horse, he plants his hooves and refuses to move a muscle. He has also been known to turn his head and neck to the rider to help secure their stability. When he indicates these changes, our team can prepare for the inevitable seizure. CC is a staple in our program and loved by all who have the pleasure of working with him.

Cheyanne

is a special paint pony, who has been a huge hit in our horse-assisted learning program, or Stable Insights. Her curious nature and unusual looks never fail to bring out an interest in participants. She is also well known for her comfortable trot and smooth stride.

 Miss Cactus Cody

Miss Cactus Cody

is our latest edition to the farm. A bay Paint horse, Cody originally hails from Texas, and can accommodate riders of varying sizes due to her short and stout physique. When our instructors met her it was love at first sight as they quickly realized how well Cody can engage riders with her easy temperament and playful nature. Cody was generously purchased and donated to Pony Power in honor of one of our board members. We are so excited to have this beautiful horse on the farm!

Evie

Evieis an incredible addition to the Pony Power team of horses. She came to the farm in December of 2012. Evie was not for sale, but her previous owners (Blue Heron Farm) were so moved by the work that Vinny was doing that they decided she would fit into our program beautifully. Evie has exceeded our expectations. She is a wonderful therapy horse with a sweet and loving personality. We are so grateful tot have her as part of our team!

Little Bit

is one of our most treasured ponies. His resume includes small pony hunter champion of New Jersey, our red light/green light champion, and the “Mayor” of the farm. Little Bit may only be waist high for some, but he still believes he is the biggest and fastest horse on the property. At the age of 24, he exudes a sense of pride and self-confidence that is undeniable when you see him prance from his stall to the ring to greet his riders.

Merle

is owned by Pony Power Instructor Julia Klopacz, but she has generously leased him to us for use in therapy lessons. We are lucky to have him! Merle is a skewbald Paint horse. Despite his beautiful and outstanding markings, Merle is a low key and relaxed guy. He has a very steady trot and calm demeanor. It seems as though he’s been doing this job forever!
