Sundance is Eight-Year-Old American Quarter Horse gelding. He was graciously donated to Copes Hope when it was determined a minor injury would not allow him to fox hunt. However, he is now learning for his new career as a therapy horse partnering in both ground and mounted equine assisted services.

Penny is a five-year-old mare UK Shetland pony who is truly just about one/two hands above a mini in size. Although she is small, she has a big heart, especially partnering with young girls in our groundwork with equine assisted services.



Fraida is our Maine Coon barn cat that really thinks she is the barn boss. Fraida has literally not found much of anything she is afraid of and loves our horses. She loves to be part of the animal therapy team and often can be found searching for someone to give her love and attention while visit Copes Hope
