Here at Riding High Farm, we are extremely proud of our horses! RHF makes every effort to acquire our equine staff from rescues, and most of our horses have found themselves homeless in the past and in need of a second chance. Our horses come from second and third careers such as law enforcement, racing, show careers and even the rodeo. RHF uses these horses to help promote mental wellness and emotional growth, along with physically strengthening the rider, in what is known as Equine-Assisted Activities and Services. Some may even say that our horses are therapists themselves! Therapeutic riding allows them to give back and use their special skills and personalities to bond with people. Horses helping people!
Get to know all of Riding High Farm’s Special animals; find a favorite below, and choose a way you can sponsor that animal.
Argo, AKA Still Waters, is an off the track race horse that not only won in the USA but in Puerto Rico. During the summer you can find him splashing in his water bucket and making a real mess of things.
Honey joined our team in April 2022. She was donated to us from the Azra Equine Club in New Jersey. She is a former Polo Pony and after a long career, retired and started her next journey here at Riding High Farm. Her sweet, up for anything personality makes her a barn favorite for sure.
Miss Blue was donated to the program in April 2021. She is officially retired from the racetrack where she used to help other horses get ready for race day. Miss Blue is a bit of a Diva so be prepared to pamper her when you see her.
Magoo AKA Mis’ta Magoo joined the team in June 2021. He’s helping us out with our growing population of adult riders. Mis’ta Magoo loves to be groomed and is a master of the trails.
Parker is a quarter horse that joined our program in August 2022. Prior to making Riding High his home, his life was difficult, but now he is learning what true acceptance and love is all about.
Scout came to RHF in October 2022 after the program he was working for closed. He needed a job and we are happy to have him. Scout is a gaited horse, more specifically a Tennessee Walker. This means that he can move each leg independently. By doing so one foot is constantly on the ground, allowing him to conserve more energy than he would while trotting. Gaited horses are used for traveling as they have greater stamina and endurance. His natural gait will be a new experience for our riders.
They say it takes a village! Well, it took the love and support of many friends to help Riding High rescue Silver. Robyn originally set her sites on adding Violet to the program. While getting to know Violet, Robyn found Silver, and he stole her heart. She simply wasn’t leaving him where he was, so with lots of fundraising we were able to add him to the program as well. Say “hi” to Silver when you see him on the farm — you can’t miss him!
After searching high and low in four different states looking for the perfect pony, we found Violet. We were able to purchase Violet through our fundraising efforts, and she officially started her training in April 2023. Violet will play an important role in our program as a therapy pony. Check back for updates on our beautiful girl as she becomes part of the herd.
Buster Blue Boy AKA Willis is a registered American Paint Horse. He is one of the most gentle horses to participate in the program. While his cute face makes him approachable, most people fall in love with his goofy personality. He tilts his head and makes a grunting noise when he is asking for treats. Willis is definitely a special part of this program and is better for riders who are just beginning.
Zelda is a quarter horse mare that joined the RHF team in December 2021. She is a rescue that came from a local barn that was downsizing.
Zelda loves her new job and has that "get the job done" personality. She has been a great addition to the family.
