Among The Shea Center’s 22 therapy program horses, there are 12 different breeds to accommodate a wide range of riders and their needs. Before coming to the Center, our horses have often been trained as trail or show horses. Each therapy horse has its own training and exercise program, its own customized feeding program, and receives Platinum Performance health and performance supplements. All of the horses are donated and go through a 90-120 day trial period to make certain they are suitable for our program.
The Shea Center expresses a sincere thank you to Richard Markell, DVM of Ranch and Coast Equine Practice for the generous weekly donation of his time and services to care for The Shea Center’s horses.
