Lady was born in 2003 and is a 13 year old Percheron mare. Lady came to the HETRA program in May of 2016, and from day one has been a great asset to our herd with her gentle personality and loving demeanor. She is also one of our largest horses at HETRA, which is ideal for being able to accommodate more adults in Therapeutic and Public Riding, and to serve in our Veteran’s program.
Before coming to HETRA, Lady was trained as a trail horse and also performed briefly as a vaulting horse (gymnastics on horseback). She was deemed too big for the vaulting program because of her large size, but her large size is precisely what makes Lady extremely special to the HETRA program.
