Equine Assisted Therapy Meet the Horses!
Each of our horses has a very unique personality here at Lakeview Heights. One trait they all have in common, though, is a sweet demeanor! If you would like to donate to our Equine Assisted Therapy program, or to a specific horse, please feel free to click on one of the “Donate” links below. Before submitting the donation, you will have the opportunity to indicate what you would like your donation to be used for. Thank you!
Mr. Pickles is a 23 year old Quarter Horse who had an active life. As a younger gentleman in Idaho, he was involved in competitive rodeo events – namely cutting and roping. He now enjoys the slower pace of living at Lakeview Heights. Mr. Pickles’ favorite treats are definitely carrots!
Sis is a 17 year old registered American Paint Horse who recently moved to Oregon from Nevada. A steadfast companion to our therapist for many years, along with a great trail riding partner, she is excited to now pursue the next step in her career – becoming a therapy horse! Sis’ favorite treats include peppermints and watermelon slices, although she will never turn a treat of any kind down.
Petra is a 13 year old Quarter Horse. Bringing with her many varied experiences, from herding cattle, to pleasure riding, to even jumping, Petra is ready to add one more skill to her repertoire- Equine Assisted Therapy. So far, Petra seems to favor apples!
Dezeray is a 19 year old Paint Horse. In her early days, Dez enjoyed being a pleasure horse. Since then, she has had a pretty relaxed life grazing with her friends. After moving to Lakeview Heights, though, Dez has picked up her new job like a pro and seems to have a soft spot for working with kids. Dez is a sugar cube kind of girl!
