Meet the Geldings...

Our geldings make up a very important-part of our programs. We use them not just for lessons, but also for our Healing with Horses program. All the geldings that are chosen to stay here at the ranch are because they have amazing temperaments and are ambassadors of the Gypsy breed.

From pulling wagon rides, to being led by a 5yr old child struggling with PTSD, you never know what will be in store for these gentle giants every single day.
