Karamel is a graceful and gorgeous lady. She has really long bangs (called a forelock) that are tied up in a pony tail sometimes so she can see. Often, we associate beauty with being aloof, but Karamel has a loving and sweet spirit that is just as beautiful as her physical appearance.

Jelly Bean is a beautiful gal who knows exactly what she wants! She is very expressive and will let you know how she feels about leaving her lunch to work or how much she is enjoying a scratch on her lovely spotted withers ( A LOT!). She is a champion at getting her needs met and a great teacher about how we can all advocate for ourselves.

Butch is a miniature horse. She looks exactly like a typical sized horse, just a whole lot smaller. Don’t let her little size fool you though, she has a lot of spirit and spunk!
Butch is loved and generously shared with Helping Hoof by San Pascual Stables.
Coco, like Butch is a miniature horse. In fact, she and Butch are best friends! They like doing everything together and are stall mates. Coco has a more chill vibe than Butch, but like Butch, her small form contains a huge spirit!

Oso is a handsome Fjord with the most fantastic mane! He is a sturdy fellow but beneath all that brawn is a sweet and fun loving disposition. Also, he has the distinction of being the first Fjord we ever met!

Mindy is an all-around kind and gentle gal. She has been trusted with young and new riders by San Pascual and is appreciated by us for that same sweet spirit mounted and on the ground. She is a horse that walks right by shoulder and feels like she is truly with you in all that you do together!

Mia is a gorgeous leopard appaloosa who knows what she likes and how to get it! And while one might think that her good looks come with a diva attitude, when it comes to humans, she loves to snuggle and be as sweet as can be.

Finley is a handsome, easy going guy who is up for trying most anything, from riding to snuggles. His easy going horsenality represents a generosity of spirit and trust in human companionship that is humbling and sweet to experience.

Dixie is a beautiful, smart and sweet lady. She has worked with veterans doing therapeutic riding and is always gentle under the saddle. Her favorite things are mints and a nice roll. When she does her back legs go straight up in the air! She also loves her special shoes for when she goes out on trail, we call them her tennies!

Ruby is a contemplative and dignified mare. She used to work in a rental string of horses but now enjoys a much slower paced life! As a lady of a certain age, Ruby has a lot of horse wisdom to share with people who open their hearts to her!

Titan is just about as snuggly as a horse can be. He likes to nuzzle his head right next to your chest and will sometimes walk with his nose resting on your hand. He is always willing to try and make a connection with humans and is super sweet about it.
Titan has moved to Oregon!
Remy is a majestic man about town. His tall size and striking coat make him a treat to behold! However, there is little that Remy likes better than to have a nice roll in the dirt to relax. Remy isn’t at all worried about getting his beautiful coat good and dirty! He likes to smoosh his face in and completely relax. Remy provides an excellent example of the importance of relishing relaxation!
Remy moved to Texas with his humans!
Texas Tea (Tex) is an all around sweet guy! His shy horsenality means he is great meeting humans who are new to, or timid or fearful around horses. He doesn’t rush up to say hello, but once properly introduced is very loving and kind. His slow and gentle approach to new relationships is greatly appreciated!
Tex is loved and was generously shared with Helping Hoof by San Pascual Stables. He has been retired and is enjoying life at pasture!
Tinkerbell was a tiny horse with an unending reserve of patience. She was a kind and sweet teacher who is willing to wait for the humans to figure out what they would like for her to do, and then figure out how to ask her to do it! Her patient horsenality and small size made her the perfect partner for younger participants! She passed away, but lived a long life. Tinkerbell didn’t have official “papers” but was at San Pascual for almost 30 years!
Tinkerbell was loved and generously shared with Helping Hoof by San Pascual Stables.
Bella was a great friend to lean on. She would let you drape yourself on her warm back and support you as you start to let go of your burdens, secrets, and stressors. Any time we stopped by her stall to say hi she greeted us with sleepy eyes and a serene face. Bella passed away and will be greatly missed.

Sadly, our sweet Suede left this world, we miss him so much and are so grateful for the time we got to share with him. Suede had the biggest heart of any horse we knew! He was a Primitive Dunn which means he had tiger stripes on his legs, which we thought was very, very cool. And, though he had those stripes, he was most snuggly! So much so, that a young friend who doesn’t speak with words very often told Kuniko, “Go Suede” so he could go and get some love!
Suede was loved and generously shared with Helping Hoof by Nicole Winner.
Sweet Domingo passed on but we will never forget all that he taught us. Domingo looked a little different than other horses. He had one eye instead of two! He had to have one removed because it caused him discomfort. Domingo was the king of calm and sometimes started to fall asleep, even when being swarmed by children! He was one of the most popular guys at the barn and a lovely, gentle reminder that we all have value. Our challenges can change us for the better and being different can be what makes us unforgettable!
