Sponsor Betsy Mae today!



Betsy Mae is a Quarter Horse mare, owned by Ducy Horse Training. She is trained as an All Around horse, which means that she shows Western Pleasure, English Classes, Showmanship, Gymkhana and Speed Events- just to name a few. Ducy has owned Betsy for almost 2 years now, since she came to Colorado after competing with the University of Findlay’s Equestrian Team in Ohio. Betsy may not live in our therapy barn but has been in training with us for months now, preparing for our riders to “Take the Lead” here at PPTRC. Wendy Ducy believes that the best part of Betsy’s new job as a therapy horse is the partnership that has been fostered between PPTRC and Ducy Horse Training and we have to agree- it’s a great opportunity to nurture our local community.

Sponsor Fancy today!


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.

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.

Vicky came from a long time owner in Parker, with whom she had a great relationship. At first she wasn't too sure about this big, new family. However, her natural talent for connecting with people found an outlet in our EFP program. She is reflective and sensitive to each person who works with her. Her willingness to meet us where we are has won many hearts.
