#HorsesForOurForces Our WarHorses are truly a special breed. Like our Heroes, they go above and beyond the call of duty to serve those who have served. Their docile nature and therapeutic abilities earn them a place in the hearts of our staff and veterans.
Rocky is a miniature horse with a large personality! He’s been known to pull a carriage, but has mostly acted as the Oak View Stables, and recently as a WarHorses barn mascot.
Casey is a teenage Appaloosa that has spent countless hours teaching small children how to ride. He has a small frame but a huge personality. His slow, smooth stride makes him a star with the veterans.
Jeb is a 10 year old Tennessee walking horse who arrived at WarHorses for Heroes and Oak View Stables after acting as a trail riding horse and backyard companion for an elderly gentlemen. His calm and stable nature is perfect for providing beginner riders new confidence.
Barney is a middle-aged draft horse and our local "gentle giant". At over 17 hands, he is the largest of the bunch. Don't be fooled by his size because Barney is a big teddy bear on the inside. He is happy whether he's pulling a carriage, riding side saddle, or hanging with the veterans.
Standing taller than Barney himself, Naomi is the largest therapy horse in the program. She is a purebred, registered Friesian - one of the few in the United States. Naomi pulls larges carriages and is currently learning how to ride under saddle. We are beyond excited to add her to the program!
