It takes a very special horse to be selected to participate in our Therapeutic Riding Program.

The horses used in the Therapeutic Riding Program have each gone through specialized training in order to prepare them for the special tasks of the program.  We use horses that are part of the UNH Equine Program.

The horses used in our current program are shown below.
