Layla: a Belgian Draft Mare
Color: Roan with light Mane and Tail
Layla is hard to miss; she is extremely impressive, large with a flowing mane and tail. She is what is commonly thought of as a draft or work horse, though I doubt she has ever ploughed a field in her life. At TEC she is a riding horse and a therapy horse. TEC provides physical, learning and recreational opportunities, with her help, to special needs children and adults. Because of her size and strength it is Layla’s job to take care of some of our larger riders. It is no problem for her. She does so with ease and without complaint. In her case “Big is Beautiful”.
Luna: a Norwegian Fiord Mare
Color: Dun with dorsal stripe
It is hard to describe how wonderful Luna is! She has a glorious mane that stands up on end; she is round and cuddly, with a wonderful, disposition. She is a huge favorite with anyone who comes to TEC. Many a rider had their first riding experience on Luna. She has been at TEC for quite a while. She was originally a driving pony. She has occasionally taken maternity leave from TEC to raise a couple of foals. She is currently on loan to TEC.
