The majority of miniature horses have brown eyes but they can also have blue eyes. Most of our therapy horses have blue eyes. Just like with people, the eyes of blue eyed horses are healthy and can see just as well as brown eyed horses.

Do you sell therapy horses?

We do not sell therapy horses. Our horses have a forever home and are loved by the children and adults they serve. Remember, you cannot purchase a trusting relationship or experience working as a team. It takes time and love.

The horses working with Gentle Carousel go through at least a two year basic training program including indoor hospital work. After that, they are constantly challenged with new experiences.
