Our Herd

One frequently asked question is which breed of horse makes the best therapy horse. The answer is that it’s not the breed so much as the heart of the horse. The horse herd at CKRH currently represents 12 different breeds. Check out our awesome herd below!

CKRH is proud to receive assistance from the Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance and the Thoroughbred Charities of America for the care of our Off The Track Thoroughbreds. After their racing careers, these Thoroughbreds still have a will to work and a desire to feel needed. A second career as a therapy horse provides the stimulation they need as they develop relationships with their clients. In many ways, Equine Assisted Therapeutic Activities benefit the Thoroughbreds just as much as the people they help.
