Our 1000 lb. Therapists
Each of Swiftsure Ranch’s therapy horses are selected, trained and cared for according to criteria developed in combination with industry standards and requirements specific to our program, activities and clientele. Hailing from all backgrounds, our horses are versatile and varied, allowing Swiftsure Ranch to accommodate our variety of participants. They are encouraged to express themselves honestly and appropriately, engaging their clients and offering an experience that transcends “horse and rider” to equal partners. They truly are the therapists in the riding sessions.

Taking care of our partners
A majority of our therapy horses came to us as a donation or were purchased with a specific contribution. Anyone interested in donating a horse please visit our Horse Donation page for specific information about what we are looking for in prospective therapy horses.
