Meet Our Courage Horses

Our horses are the rock at Courage Rock Stable and help give us the courage we sometimes need for many reasons.   All the horses at Courage Rock have such a diversity in character and each have a story of their own.  The relationship we build with our equine partners is therapeutic in itself and what we can learn about ourselves through the reflection of your horses personality can change your state of mind and give way to explore areas of intimidation or fears we may have.   Click on each image to learn more about our horses.
