Miniature Horses

We have three miniature horses Lucy, Linus, and Charlie Brown. Lucy is brown, Charlie Brown is black and Linus is mostly white, but he has the most amazing blue eyes.


Although these three are not in our program as therapy horses, they are PRDA’s mascots. They have been to golf tournaments, wine runs, seniors’ homes, and senior centres.


They are always a big hit when we have senior groups visit PRDA and they are brought out to meet and spend time with them. They love to run loose in the arena and put on a show for our guests.


They are always up for treats from anyone who might have brought some extras.
