Captain

Paint/Draft Cross Gelding

Captain was purchased for the program in August of 2022 and immediately took to his new ‘job’. A former trail horse and lesson horse, Captain is a pro at Western and English alike, is calm yet very responsive under saddle, and is a smooth and steady ride for all. Captain is a big boy, and his wide base is excellent for helping riders keep their balance, yet he is not too tall for side-walkers. Captain can often be found snuggling with the volunteers that clean his paddock!

Dream arrived in early June, and he has quickly worked his way into our hearts -- and into the RTT lesson schedule! Dream, a 16-year-old Haflinger, comes to RTT with a great deal of training. While the world of therapeutic riding is new to him, we are constantly impressed with his kindness, curiosity and desire to work with his riders

Merlin

Rocky Mountain Saddle Horse Gelding

Merlin joined the RTT herd in July of 2022 as a free lease. He has previous training in dressage and jumping and also has experience as a lesson horse. He is a big, handsome guy with a shiny black coat and long, wavy mane and a very polite personality to go along with it. Merlin is great for emerging independent riders as well as riders that need a little more support.

Apple Jax

Miniature horse gelding

Apple Jax, or ‘AJ’, arrived at RTT in November of 2023. We are so happy to have a greeter once again in our mini pen near the parking lot, and AJ takes his job very seriously! His little nicker is a wonderful welcome to all that arrive at RTT. AJ is trained to drive and is slowly being introduced to our carriage driving program. He is also in our walking program and some ground lessons and is sure to be a star at summer camp. He is as playful as he is cute and loves being around people.

Carrot

Haflinger Gelding

Carrot is a Haflinger gelding who came to RTT in the summer of 2023. At first glance he may remind you of two of our past herd members--Andy and Lilly! He is 20 years old and came with exceptional credentials, having served in a therapeutic riding program at Southern Vermont Therapeutic Riding, in Wilmington, VT. Sadly, their program closed in the summer of 2023 and they were thrilled to think of him continuing his work at RTT.

Monty

Quarter Horse Gelding

Monty is a 10 year old Quarter Horse who made the trip from Florida to Maine this past winter. It was a big adjustment temperature wise for this gelding, but now that it has warmed up, Monty seems much happier! He is a super curious fellow who loves people.

Aradis

Icelandic Mare

Aradis (whose name is Icelandic for ‘keeper of the eagles’) was born in 2005 and raised on a farm in Maine with a herd of other Icelandic horses. She has training in dressage and is an accomplished trail horse. Riders love Aradis’ tolt, which is a very smooth gait and faster than the walk. Aradis is as sweet and gentle as they come, loves to be groomed, and loves to play with her pasture mate, Flynn. She was donated to RTT in the summer of 2021.

Champ

Pinto Pony Gelding

Champ was born in 2002 and has been at RTT since 2015 as a "free lease." He has a wonderful background in both driving and riding. His small stature is overshadowed by his huge personality! He loves to play games and make kids laugh with his bouncy trot and mischievous behavior.

Lucky

Quarter Horse Gelding

Lucky was born in 2006 and has been at RTT since October of 2018. Lucky’s previous training was mostly on the trails, and it shows by how much he loves taking his riders out on our trails. Lucky is a natural at his new job as a therapy horse, with a very sensitive nature and a keen sense for who is on his back. He can be steady and predictable or provide just the right challenge for those that are up for it. Whether nuzzling a participant during a ground lesson or playing mounted games, Lucky is a great addition to the RTT herd.
