volunteer and who is now a WW staff member. Nick is a former
show and pony club participant, Nick is our go-to team member.
He has a big horse persona in a pony size body. He takes no
bossing from the other horses. He is awesome on the lunge
line allowing many of our independent riders to
experience their very first comfortable and safe canter.

Sweet and handsome dude who shows heart and willingness
in his work. He has a beautiful flaxen mane and tail. He
thoroughly enjoys the attention of people especially from
the children. His good field buddy is Freddie, a close look-alike.
Her registered name is Never Skipped Over and this beloved therapy
mare is seldom left out of the variety of activities we over. She has a gentle,
quiet demeanor and is often chosen to introduce new clients to their first equine experience.
Becca came to us by way of Granby. She did some cutting, reining
and all around ranch cattle work. She is a pretty mare capable of
western rollbacks, and side-passes, to the delight our more independent riders. She excels with a three man team for therapeutic riding and can easily carry larger riders. Our camp kids enjoy her because of her comfortable gaits.
Peanut comes to us from Rifle. In his former life he was
used as a pack horse and was a kind and steady trail
horse for kids. He is a fuzzy black coated, solid horse
who often sports the letter W for WindWalkers
on his butt . . . after his body clipping sessions.
Cloudy is smart, capable, accomplished pony who competed
successfully at the Pony Finals back East. Contrary to his name
he has a happy sunny disposition who willingly connects with
our smallest of clients. He is a small package with a huge heart.
Freddie is a small quarter horse that came to us from Arizona as a former reiner. A bit of a clown who likes to untie himself and take off. He picks up almost anything in his mouth to carry around. He is a fun entertainer but once work starts he is all business. He and his horse buddy Cody who is similar in markings and color, enjoy hanging out together.
Staff member, Mary Jane rescued Blanket while he was
just a foal. He is a very inquisitive, playful and yet
gentle Appy who has found his niche in our Equine
Assisted Psychotherapy Program. He loves people and
is a very willing participates in the EAP exercises.
