Meet the Horses!

Coco

Coco is a 24 year old Arabian mare who has been giving lessons for several years. Standing at 15 hands she is a small horse but she has plenty of go and is a master lesson horse. Come by and meet her!

Dakota

Dakota is an 12 year old Quarter Horse gelding and is a new member of the Walk On team. He is the largest horse in the program at 16 hands tall, but is the sweetest and most gentle horse there is.

Luke

Luke is a 14 year old Quarter horse gelding who came to the program from Twin Falls, Idaho. He has previously given lessons and has also done jumping, showing, barrels, poles and trial riding. He is the definition of an all around horse!

Cowboy

Cowboy is a 22 year old Quarter Horse gelding who is as laid back as horses come! He enjoys walking out on trails and works with clients who ride on lead.

In Loving Memory

Joe was a very special member of the Walk On team and spent many days teaching, loving and caring for the children he worked with. He departed to greener pastures on March 25th, 2020. We miss him dearly and will always cherish the memories we have with him.
