Hope. Healing. Horses.

"Remington" is a 2012 bay roan mixed breed rescue gelding. Remy was born in Kentucky, and moved around to at least four different homes through Ohio and Pennsylvania, when we found him in Erie, PA. We fell in love with his relaxed, "anything goes" personality, and brought him home to Take Heart in July, 2016. Remy is extremely friendly and loves attention from people - but feared other horses when he arrived. Covered in scars from his past herd experiences, Remy slowly learned to trust Noble and Charley, and to bravely be himself in the herd. Now he is the instigator of play! This little guy encourages us all to be authentic and boldly overcome our fears.


"Hurricane Charley" is a 2001 buckskin Quarter Horse gelding. Meagan has owned him since 2005 and together, they used to do local fun shows and trail rides. Charley is expressive, personable, and loves attention - but acts grouchy until you know him better. Charley has been through several serious illnesses, and has come out on the other side stronger and wiser. He enjoys obstacle courses and trail rides around the farm - anything to challenge him. Charley has a dominant but gentle personality, which means you have to earn his trust and respect. He teaches clients to be assertive and authentic, and that there's more to someone than just a tough outer shell.



"Noble Woods" is a registered 2001 palomino Haflinger gelding. Noble was generously donated to Take Heart in fall 2015 to become a healing horse, and has fit in since day one! Noble is personable and playful, always searching pockets for treats. In his past, Noble has done everything from pulling carts to dressage and still loves a good trail ride. Noble has the most glorious thick mane for braiding, and his puppy-dog nature earns him fast friends. He has a protective personality and often creates a special bond with clients who have experienced abuse. He and Remy are best friends and you usually find them sharing hay in a stall side by side.
