There are many types and sizes of horses at StarBrite. It is always important to fit the child with the right horse. Many components are considered in making this match and we are pleased to have such a variety of horses sizes and personalities to choose from. Your kind donations allow us to maintain these horses helping to provide the very best experience for our kids.
Meet Our Horses
To highlight a few of our horses, we would like you to meet:
Lizzy and Bucky are part of our mini herd. These little ones always bring joy to the children. They are calm, playful, curious and just fun to be with!
Cassidy and Hallie are so very adorable. Hallie loves to be with the children and seems to think that she is a dog, instead of a horse. Cassidy is sweet and has been a very good mom.
Hillary is riding Baby Girl, a beautiful paint who is calm, cool and very collected as you can see, she is riding bareback with just a rope halter and lead rope.
Hillary works with our horses to keep them in good shape both physically and mentally. Here, she is checking Reba's feet. Reba spent her youth as a Civil War Reenacting cavalry horse. She does it all - spooks at nothing and loves to "talk" to the kids. She is a natural ambassador for StarBrite.
Rene and Irish are still very young, but like so many of the children who visit us, are curious and fun loving. They greet each child with enthusiasm and joy. They give our kids the chance to work with yearlings who are still in training which gives our children a feeling of accomplishment and satisfaction each time a new command or instruction is learned.
Here are Cassidy, Vanna, Sonny and Lizzy at the Christmas Parade with some of our kids and volunteers.
