Her gentle and maternal nature with children makes her a perfect and safe little lesson pony. She is used for multiple types of riding lessons and children camps during the summer, and the kids love her! Fancy loves the color red!

His smooth gaits make him a perfect horse to learn to trot and canter on. Ray's favorite color is green!
DOB: 2001 Little Man was purchased in 2005 by Worthmore and he has been an essential member of the team ever since. He has been working in therapeutic riding programs since he came to the farm.

He works in multiple programs at Worthmore, including the weekly lesson program, KART, and Bridges. He is also a great trail pony and loves the color red!
