Registered Name: Slews Freedom
Height: 14*3 Hands
Freedom has lived up to her name in many ways. As sensitive and basically timid as she has been since birth, her calm and sleepy demeanor can become an explosion of movement when she’s inspired! Her athleticism and spirit can also inspire us!

Blue has the Wisdom of a Sage and has been slowly teaching the younger horses what his Life experiences have taught him. He constantly amazes us with his ability to detect and support the healing needs of others. Each episode feels magical and leaves us in awe. Do beware, though—Blue likes to remove hats!!

Destiny came to us with the name that rings true for so many who came in contact with this mare of Great “Horse”--nality. In spite of her physical challenges, she held her own in the herd, and quickly bonded to others who felt challenged. Destiny touched the hearts of many and we will be forever grateful that she was a part of our herd. Destiny passed away on March 7, 2022.
Little Man is only little in body…not in spirit!! He has grown to be more expressive in the few years he’s been with us, in a very delightful and heart-warming way. With his white circled eyes, he looks like a war pony that’s been painted to strengthen his senses; and it seems to be working!

Epona is the youngest member of our herd, but by no means the least wise. She is a natural leader, but is a vigilant sentinel and even can be nurturing when a situation seems like a threat to “her” herd. Her most favorite thing is to snuggle her head into a willing participant’s chest, and become very still.

Brown joins us from Barbara Rector’s herd of amazing horses that she has worked with through Adventures In Awareness. Some of you might already know Brown from those trainings and experiences.
Brown quickly found his place in the herd when he joined us in January of 2020. At first he seemed to keep a distance from our sessions, but gradually became more curious and much more playful. He has tickled a lot of hands and faces with his searching upper lip and worked his way into many hearts.

Ralph spent his younger years running barrels and winning quarter mile races. After winning $60,000 for his owners, his age and injuries forced them to retire him from competition. They donated him to TRAK (Therapeutic Ranch for Animals and Kids).
Wendy Greene began working with him to establish a peaceful friendship along with a feeling of safety. After a year of that work, the owner of TRAK gave Ralph to Wendy in November of 2021. Wendy engaged the Services of Jeanie Shepherd at Equinimity to help treat both Ralph's physical and psychological trauma. Over time the relationship grew.
Ralph moved full time to Equinimity in the spring of 2022. He immediately began working with clients. His experience with overcoming past trauma made him uniquely suitable as a therapy horse. He is often the first to volunteer to work with people who need a calm gentle presence to journey with them as they work on the issues that brought them to Equinimity
