Our Equine Team
Our horses are an integral part of our team at Stable Connections.
We actually do very little talking during our sessions. Instead our facilitating team lets our clients interact with the horses. Horses are naturally great mirrors! They reflect back a client’s behaviors. True change and results occurs when the clients realize they have the power to change themselves and therefore the world around them.
Daisy is a nine-year old Belgian/Quarter horse mare that we like to call the Big Daisy (she is 1,100 pounds). Daisy is new to the EAP/EAL program. She primarily works one-on-one and is learning to encourage clients to speak from the heart.
Mell is an 18 year old Morgan mare who came to us this summer from friends in Guildhall and has become one of the favorite horses to ride. She has a great personality, a wonderful trot and loves the attention she receives from her riders.
Dream is a 17-year old registered Quarter Horse Paint mare. She is very sensitive to the emotions of our clients. When necessary, Dream will step in to assist when others can’t get through to our clients.
Kopper is a 20 year old Fox trotter who also joined the Stable Connections team this summer from great friends in Stowe. She is the “go to horse” for children with severe physical disabilities. She will stand patiently as we use the mounting station to get the student on, which sometimes will take 10 minutes. Kopper is a great addition to our team.
