Sponsor Dusty today!

Dusty joined the PPTRC herd along with his brother, Teddy. Dusty, being the older and wiser of the two played a unique role in the herd as mediator. While Teddy had ambitions for being the leader, Dusty enjoyed keeping the peace. Dusty is often seen breaking up fights and being a wonderfully level headed herd mate. Before joining PPTRC, Dusty was used as a trail horse by a local Falcon family who loved and cared for him for a good number of years.

He has seen many riders succeed with his movement. Prior to working at PPTRC, Echo worked cattle and participated in Western Speed Events.

Fancy is a registered Appaloosa with a liver chestnut coat with a snowflake pattern. Fancy was born to a Thoroughbred racing barn. She was raised and trained to be a pony horse on the tracks, but due to family medical bills her prior family had to sell her. Our Equine Manager, Maggie purchased her in 2005 in Illinois and started showing her in youth classes at Appaloosa breed shows. Wherever Maggie went, Fancy followed whether it was shows, trail rides, or college. Now at the age of 16, Fancy finds herself among a fun diverse herd with an important job of helping clients work through their disabilities.

Sponsor Gracie today!


Gracie came to PPTRC after training and competing in lower level Dressage work. She has adjusted to our strange and unique manner of work very well and is creating life long memories with her clients. Gracie's sensitive nature is a wonderful tool for our instructors to implement with their clients to further the clients progression. Gracie has a personality of a diva on some days which everyone in the barn adores. She loves being pampered and loved on by her clients. Her biggest request however is to not walk her through the mud after her hooves have been conditioned. She is a true lady in that sense!

Harley is a very sweet and curious pony. He was used as a children’s riding horse prior to coming to us. He is very popular here at PPTRC, especially with people timid about working with such large animals. His small stature, bright eyes and silly antics surely make everyone smile.

Sponsor Teddy today!

Teddy joined PPTRC's herd along with his brother, Dusty. Teddy's sweet and personable attitude toward everyone makes him a favorite in the barn. He likes to stay in charge when out in pasture, but in the arena he tries to do everything he can to make his clients happy. Many people have commented on how he truly is a Teddy Bear. Teddy is also the bloodhound of the herd. He can sniff out any sort of treat within a 20 foot radius. So be careful what you put in your pockets! It might not be yours for long.
