Bella is a 2008 Quarter Horse who was bred, raised, and trained by Matt and Brooke Lucas. Bella demonstrates a heightened level of sensitivity and intuition with children. She pays close attention to the kids around her and adjusts herself to accommodate them. Bella teaches awareness and trust with her calm, gentle, and sweet disposition. She can be ridden both English or Western, and is great with trail obstacles. Her beautiful, three-dimensional movement, makes her suitable for hippotherapy. Bella is extremely sensitive so she is used by our more advanced riders.
Taffy is a 2013 Welsh Pony. She participated in jumping and games before she came to GREAAT!. She has an amazing disposition for therapeutic riding and her size is perfect for the average 5-10-year-old rider. Taffy spent six months training with Louise Blankenship, and learned how to pull a cart. She has taken to it beautifully and now works with individuals who cannot mount or ride a horse.

Cowboy joined the program in 2018. He is the cutest and sweetest little guy. He is perfect for those who are intimidated of horses. Cowboy pulls a cart and can be ridden by our littlest of riders.

However, he is always available for hugs and love.
