RAINY

Rainy is a veteran at our program. This will be her third year with us. She is favorite. She has all the cuteness of a pony and a great brain to boot. At 13 years old, we have many more years to look forward to with Rainy. 

A big thank you to Mary Ann Witkopp who owns Rainy (if anyone can really own a pony) and generously shares her with us during the summer months. During the off season this year, Rainy has been the school bus driver for an Amish school!

TOPAZ

Topaz is a 24 year old Morgan mare. She was donated to us from Kohler.  She is quiet, wise and reliable. All that we would want for a therapy horse wrapped up in a beautiful package.

A big thank you to Mary Ann Witkopp who generously not only trained her to participate in our program but cares for her during the off season.

DOLLY

Zippo Dee Do Doll (Dolly) is an 8 year old APHA (solid) Chestnut mare owned by REINS Sr. Equine Specialist Jodi Engelhardt.  She is taking a break from the rigors of being a Show Horse where she has earned some pretty big prizes & is enjoying the more relaxed, meaningful life of a Therapy Horse. This is Dolly's 1st year with REINS.

BARBIE

Fashionable Hot Rod (Barbie) is a 14 year old AQHA Bay Mare owned by REINS Sr. Equine Specialist Jodi Engelhardt. She is retired from a career as a Team Penning  Horse which is where 3 horses & riders work together to get 3 specific calves cut out of an entire herd, chased down to the other end of the arena & corralled into a small pen. It is a timed event so they run REALLY fast but Barbie loves her "new job" of going slow & taking care of our riders much, much better! This is Barbies 2nd year with REINS.

HOWIE

Howie is new to REINS this year. At 24, he is still young. He has retired from the show ring but loves being a therapy horse. 

Thank you to Scott Neitzel who decided to share him with us. Howie comes from Scott's farm in Minnesota and is quickly becoming a Packer's Fan.

MOONEY

Mooney is new this year and came at just the right time. We needed a quiet, large based, broad backed horse and boy is he all those things. And in a handsome package to boot!

At 9 years old and 1,700 pounds, we hope to have a long relationship with Mooney and our riders. Thank you Amy Schmidt for allowing us to work with this special horse. He has a special place in your heart and our riders and staff as well.

Dallas - SPONSORED

 

Dallas comes to us through a friend of Jacleen our instructor. He is a special member of the Pierce family and we can't thank Ben and his family enough for sharing him with us this summer.

Dallas is a 13 year old American Quarter Horse. We hope he is able to return and continue to do this special work.

Thank you to a generous supporter who anonymously sponsored Dallas for the season.

Carin

Carin came to us a few weeks into the season to meet a special set of needs. She fits right in and our riders are falling in love. She is a Norwegian Fjord, 18 years young with lots of experience.  

Her owner and friend, Julie Cramer generously responded to our need. We can't thank her enough.

Scout

Scout is easy to spot in our program. He our only paint and his brown and white markings make him look as special as he is. He is the perfect mount for our riders who need a narrow based horse. We couldn't serve some of our needs without him. 

Scout is new this year. His owner Stephanie Steinert connected with us during the off season. She was looking for just the right job for him. We certainly think he has found it with our riders and REINS.
