Faith Equestrian Therapeutic Center
Shadow has been with Faith Equestrian since 2010, born in 1994.
Shadow is the go-to horse for each instructor that is working with a high-need client who may be unpredictable or have high anxiety. Shadow is an absolute saint! He stands quietly for all activities and actively engages with participants as well as volunteers. He enjoys being with people in general. Shadow is always the easiest to catch and lead in. He is gentle with children as young as 5 and a steady support to those who have balance issues. He is never pushy and is always respectful. Stands quietly for the farrier and veterinarian. Shadow enjoys baths and spa days with his best friend Cody, the pony. He is a handsome, black horse with graying around his muzzle with a heart of cold and the patience of Job.
He is truly a valued equine staff member! Shadow would greatly benefit from the Platinum Performance Products due to his age alone but also because of his digestive issues which require soaked alfalfa cubes.
