Suffolk Punch is a rare breed of quintessential giants with sweet, quiet personalities. Dino is nothing short of that and became an instant therapy horse! He is patient, mellow and sweet – Dino adores belly rubs, treats and kind words. In the arena, he’s accepting of all things that come with being a therapy horse, from shooting hoops to noodle jousts and corn hole! Dino served our medium to large adult riders in Therapeutic Riding and kiddos on our Family Fun Days. He was also the gentle giant of our mental health EASE program, teaching many that our physical appearance does not equate to who we truly are! Dino served for two years as a star therapy horse, but needed a cooler climate and was retired to a boarding facility in Staunton, Virginia. We are so lucky to give him a home where he can live a happy, healthy life because of our generous donors!
