Currently 10 strong, the Dayspring herd is characterized by the diversity of its horses. Each horse lends their own special talents to our program and must undergo a rigorous training, temperament and tolerance. Our horses serve participants ages four to over ninety in a broad variety of therapeutic activities requires horses with many unique qualities.
Many of the horses in our programs have been donated to Dayspring. Working in an equine assisted therapy program is a mentally and physically challenging job for our equine friends. A great therapy horse is sound at the walk, trot and lope, with three rhythmic and balanced gaits.
