Amicus or "Amee" (am-ee) for short came to Courage Rock in June 2021  to be used in all Courage Rock programs.  He was purchased by the program director Kim Markham who had wanted a Friesian for many years. 


When "Amee" came to Courage Rock,  it had taken some time to work with him as he had not been separated from his mother until his arrival for sixteen years. 

"Amee's" damn is a registered buckskin quarter horse and sire is full Friesian.  He represents both parents with his mothers colors during the summer, and more like his sire in the winter.  


Our Mission is to engage and develop the relationship between humans and the therapeutic energy of a horse to strengthen the physical, emotional, and mental well-being of ones life.
