Sunny, a mature American Paint, is a born care giver and a real therapy horse at heart. Sunny is most happy when she is surrounded by children, and especially when there is a child seated upon her back. Originally acquired as a trail riding horse, Sunny instinctively gravitated towards her previous rider’s autistic three year old son. Right away it was apparent that Sunny was special when she demonstrated a heightened level of sensitivity and intuition with him and other children, always paying close attention to the kids around her and adjusting herself to accommodate them. Sunny is a very calm, gentle, and sweet horse, teaching confidence and trust with her dependable personality and tender spirit.
