”Poppy” is a true-blue living legend of the American West. Born in the wild and gathered as an almost 2-year-old she was gentled through the BLM “TIP Training Program”. It was there that we discovered her with her trainer in Colorado. She was born in the Tilly Creek HMA (Herd Management Area) in Utah. When she first joined our family we decided it would be best to allow her a few years to finish growing & get to know her personality before entering her into any therapy activities.

Poppy is currently in training with Gaia of Turnaround Farms where she is learning how to be a confident & well-rounded equine partner. Once she finishes horse school she will be re-joining the therapy team to occasionally facilitate Equine Assisted Therapeutic Activities with our licensed therapist colleagues.

***UPDATE***
September 2023 – We are happy to announce that Poppy has found her person! She has moved on to her next big adventure and forever home! She will continue working with our friends at Turnaround Farms from time to time as she develops her bond with her new person! Congratulations Poppy! We are so happy you found such an amazing home!
