One Heart Stables is home to a select group of horses. Each of their distinctive personalities contributes to their role as “equine therapists” as they serve the children in our residential program as well as adults and children in the general public through Encompass Christian Counseling. With each equine lesson, we strive for our riders to gain self confidence, improve their mental and physical capabilities, and engage in social relationships with other riders, staff and volunteers.
Breed: Quarter Pony
Caramel is the smallest therapy horse in the barn. He is often described as “small but mighty” because he is brave, energetic, and enjoys going for long trail rides.
Caramel has helped many people learn to trust horses through his gentle yet spirited personality. He has the patience of a saint and is a great match for the young horse enthusiast. Caramel loves all of the attention that he receives and is exceptionally happy when munching on a carrot or apple.
