Born of Wayne Newton’s Ultimate Star and a dam named Hi-Fashion Camaar, Style has quite the pedigree that can be traced all the way back to desert bred Arabians in the 1800s. Arabians are recognized for their graceful motion and beauty and Style truly lives up to his name. Style is attuned to his riders, a quick learner, intelligent and perceptive. Style joined the ROSL team in late 2015. He is serving clients in a small capacity and training to be the best therapy horse!
I’m Lucy and proud to be an Appaloosa. I came to live at ROSL in 2001 and know I have many important jobs. I am healthier than ever before and like to help my clients feel better, too. I am patient and caring with each of my clients, but in the herd I am the alpha mare!
Do you like the phrase, “Hey girlfriend”? Well that is all about me. Amiga means “girlfriend!” I am the perfect girlfriend, too. I love having my mane combed , groomed until I’m sleek and shiny, and I love keeping track of the other horses in my herd! You can come to me for any gossip heard out in the pasture and I have all the characteristics of a Welsh pony.
Hello, my name is Johnny “Cruz” and at 22 years old, I’ve got quite the resume. I spent most of my life running endurance races before finding my girl. With her we learned barrels and show etiquette and enjoyed trail rides together. Because of my history, I’m very comfortable with myself and am a great teacher. My patience and understanding of the world around me has given me gentlemanly manners both towards my humans and my herd.
My name is April. I was foaled in 2003 and am a very sweet (so I’ve been told) Haflinger. I am very attentive to my herd and my humans and am willing to learn. I am new to the ROSL scene, but am doing great as a I learn what it takes to be a great therapy horse. I have just the right size to help out many clients, both children and adults. In the pasture I love being just one of the girls! April’s inclusion in the ROSL program is thanks to a generous grant supported by the Jefferson Memorial Community Foundation.
I’m Zen Zell Washington, or Zen for short! I’m a 16 hand, Dutch Warm Blood, who’s spent some time in Texas and Florida as a level II dressage horse. At 13 years old, I think I have most things figured out and there’s not too much that upsets me. I love being around people and hanging out in the pasture with my new herd. I can’t wait to get started as a therapy horse, I love feeling useful and being a part of a team!
Ola. Me llamo Juan “Diego.” Oh, pardon me, that’s John James in English. I started as a therapy horse when I was only three. I was chosen especially for my size, 13.3 hands, and my outgoing personality. I love to play with toys, new volunteers, kids and pretty much anything I can get my mouth or hoof on. I am a bay quarter horse, muscled, athletic, versatile and quick. My breed got its name because we could run a quarter mile faster than any other horse.
