Meet Our Herd

Great horses are indispensable to Winslow. Without them our program would fall apart. These gentle giants love attention, have great ground manners and are very tolerant of their surrounding and their rider.

Apollo

Winslow Therapeutic Apollo

Apollo comes to Winslow after years of being a show horse. He competed in the Hunter/Jumper and Hunter Pacing categories under his show name Apollo Chariot. This statuesque bay Thoroughbred is 16.1 hands tall and was sired in 1998.   Apollo has excellent ground manners and enjoys a good scratch on his neck with a curry comb.

Betty Boop

Winslow Therapeutic Betty Boop

Because of Betty’s modest height of 14 hands, her mild temperament and her movement, she is a gem for our littlest riders at Winslow and she is often used in hippotherepy lessons.  However, her quick stride makes her suitable for many different types of riders.  Betty Boop is a dark bay Standardbred pony sired in 1996 and is double registered with the International Trotting and Pacing Association as well as the New York Trottingbred Registry under her formal name of Paceway’s Black Gem!

Billy

Winslow Therapeutic Billy

Just the other day a young rider asked, “Who’s the horse in the camouflage?” That’s Billy our dark bay Appaloosa/Thoroughbred mix. He stands 16.2 hands tall and was sired in 1994. Billy has a laid back easy going personality and he takes direction really well. He loves being around people but he has 2 close horse friends as well, Taz and Apollo. Billy was donated to us by Beth Sylvestri.

Bob

Winslow Therapeutic Bob

As Winslow’s “class clown,” you can always count on Bob for a good laugh. However, he is always ready to get serious and give a great lesson of all types, including lead line, independent and trail riding. He is a dark bay Welsh Cob/Thoroughbred mix standing 15.1 hands high. He was sired in 1994 and given the show name Bucknell Gentlemen. Bob’s favorite past time is horsing around with his best friends Duke and Neil.

Cosmo

Winslow Therapeutic Cosmo

Cosmo was sired in 1989. He is a dark bay Paso Fino/Quarter Horse with one of the smoothest gates here at Winslow. His movement and his height, 15 hands, makes him the perfect therapeutic horse for some of our littlest riders. Our many school groups that come through our barn keep Cosmo busy almost every morning. Cosmo has 2 brands on him, one on his left hip and one of his left cheek.

Daisy

Winslow Therapeutic Daisy

Daisy joined our herd in early 2015 and settled into her new job as a therapeutic riding horse very quickly.  She is a versatile horse who can switch from Western to English style easily. Because of her 14.3 hands height she is perfect for our smaller riders and she loves working with our kids at Winslow. Daisy is a liver chestnut Quarter Horse sired in 1999. When she’s not in programming you can find her hanging out with her BFF Lila.

Grace

At 17.1 hands, Gracie, our chestnut Hanoverian, is our tallest horse here at Winslow.  Arriving here in the winter of 2015, Gracie settled into our programming right away.  Gracie was sired in 1998 and is missing her left eye but she has adjusted perfectly because of her easy going temperament.   We use Gracie in all kinds of lessons. We are so happy to have her. In her down time she loves hanging with her buddy Toni, who is our smallest horse!   Gracie is on free lease to us by Sommerfield Stables.

Duke

Duke came to Winslow in 2003 and has been an integral part of our therapy program ever since. Sired in 1984 he is one of our seniors and now gets plenty of rest time when he’s not teaching a beginner rider.   He is a dun Quarter Horse and stands 15.1 hands.  Duke is donated to Winslow by Dominic Capone.

Lila

Winslow Therapeutic Lila

When you meet Lila the first thing you may notice is her beautiful curly coat and mane, especially in the winter months.  This is typical of her breed, a Bashkir curly.  She is perfect to teach our school groups and individual riders how to groom because she is hypo-allergenic tested.    She is a paint beauty standing 14.2 hands sired in 2008.  Lila was donated to us by Deirdre Hamling.

Taz

Winslow Therapeutic Taz

Our 16.1 bay and white Paint Cross horse named Taz is an outdoorsy kind of guy.  He loves to be out on the trails.  Still, he is able to excel at any type of lesson we throw at him.  Taz, sired in 1988, belongs to one of instructors Joyce DeGhetto.  When he is not working, he loves to eat and spend time with his pals Billy and Apollo.

Slip n Slide

Winslow Therapeutic Slip n Slide

Slip and Slide is a 16 hand bay Standardbred.  Around here we just call him “Slippy”.     Slippy came to us in June of 2015 on free lease from Denelle Stratton.   He made a quick transition into our program because of his work ethic and strong desire to please.   Slippy was born in 2000 in Australia and his favorite treat is oatmeal crème pies!!   Slippy is on free lease to Winslow from Denelle Stratton.

Zorro

Winslow Therapeutic Zorro

If you hear something rattling it’s probably our inquisitive Zoro playing with lead ropes, bridles, jackets or anything that hangs by his stall.   He was born blind in his left eye but that doesn’t slow him down one bit.  As a matter of fact this 16 hand grey Thoroughbred used to be a race horse in Canada.  Sired in 2002, we look forward to many years ahead with this smart and expressive guy.   Zorro is on free lease to Winslow by Nancy Stillman.

Dante

Dante came to us as a free leased by the Malocsay Family in the Fall of 2015.   He knows the ropes and is happy to walk and trot our riders as much as we ask him to.   He is a grey Thoroughbred/Quarter Horse standing 16.1 hands, sired in 1994.   He loves having company in the field and can often be seen playing with Slippy outside.
