Our Herd

Here at Winslow, our four-legged healers are indispensable. Without them our programs would fall apart. All of our horses have special stories and have been donated to us or are on free lease. These gentle giants love attention, have great ground manners and are very tolerant of their surroundings and our riders.

We are always looking for new herd members to join our program. For more information or to donate a horse, please click HERE.
