Our Four-Legged Staff

HorsePower horses are a special bunch selected for their calm demeanors, unique gaits, and cooperative attitudes. We use a range of breeds from American Bashkir Curly horses, to Arabians. Our horses are trained to handle the unpredicatability of life in a therapuetic environment, and are treated to care that befits their most special jobs! All horses in our program are given yearly teeth floats, sheeth cleaning, vaccinations and check ups. These lucky critters also regularly recieve chiropractics, Pulse Electro Magnetic Field Therapy (Thank you Midwest PEMF!) , and a few too many apples!




Captain America

Captain America is an 12 year old Gypsy Vanner Horse that was purchased from Kentucky with the generous Sanford’s Legends for Kids grant. He is used in both Therapeutic Riding and Hippotherapy and his sturdy 13 hand build makes him extremely adaptable to many different sized riders.

Arrow has quickly become a crowd favorite as one of the newest members of the HorsePower Herd. He is an American Bashkir Curl!  A couple of fun facts about this breed--he is hypo-allergenic, and he has no mane or tail!  His young spirit and curiosity make him a very loveable guy.  We are excited to have him on board!

HUGE Thank you to Novak Sanitary for sponsoring Arrow!





Dunny is a ten year old mare who was generously donated to us after retiring from a career in cutting.  Her calm nature and sturdy build make her a wonderful fit for both the Hippotherapy and Therapeutic Riding programs.  She even helps out with Independent Riding!  Dunny is a sweetheart and loves being doted on by anyone who will give her a little extra TLC. 

Dunny is proudly sponsored by dedicated supporter and volunteer, Susie Lammers.  Thank you, Susie!

Buttercup is a five year old American Bashkir Curly horse.  B enjoys being bathed, groomed, and scratched behind the ears. Although she comes in at a mere 14.3 hands she is a powerful mover whose gigantic trot is fun to watch out in the pasture!

Buttercup is generously sponsored by long time HorsePower supporter Joette Everist!
