LoveWay Therapy Horses

Meet Our Exceptional Herd!

LoveWay Therapeutic Equestrian Services is home to a herd of horses who are specially trained and uniquely suited to help us provide a variety of activities and therapies to LoveWay’s clients. Our equine staff is integral to our programs and work very hard.

Therapy horses are incredible.  They are patient, tolerant, good humored, well trained, and sound both mentally and physically.  As you can imagine, these animals are very hard to come by, so once we get them on our team, we try our hardest to keep them happy, healthy, and here!   Their well-being is our top priority. Learn more about our very special horses below!

In Memory of Copper

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved Copper on 4/4/2019. Copper was LoveWay’s go to horse; he was steady, level-headed, kind and handsome. He was an amazing asset to LoveWay and a favorite of many. Copper was the kind of horse that doesn’t come around very often. There was not a dry eye at LoveWay as we had to say goodbye to our friend. We will all miss you terribly. Run free through the fields of heaven, sweet boy.

In Memory of Sunny
