Horses

IMG_9758As trusted and lovable companions, horses are blessed with the ability to not only challenge us physically but also move us emotionally. With their kind eyes and gentle temperament, horses speak to us in ways that can either empower or humble our confidence. As a result, our program horses are so special because they patiently teach us to become the best version of ourselves.

 Therapy Horses

Horses who serve individuals through therapeutic riding and equine-assisted activities are commonly known for being both inspiring and forgiving. Because they are typically older, our program horses are experienced instructors who still have so much more to give, even in retirement. Once upon a time, these horses had other careers of their own, and because of their diverse backgrounds and disciplines, Heaven’s Gait Ranch requires a 90 day trial period to determine whether or not our programs are a good fit for their future.

Have you ever wondered how much weight a horse can carry?
They say up to 20% of their own body weight, including tack.
The average English saddle weighs 17 lbs.
Western saddles can weigh up to 60 lbs!
You add the weight of the saddle
and a 200 pound adult, who may be unbalanced,
and that’s a lot of weight on a horse’s back —
as well as their shoulders, hips, and feet!
1 chiropractic adjustment = $50 per horse
10 program horses = $500 per season

1 hour of TTouch conditioning = $60
