Sponsor Mr. Geir

150.00

Sponsoring a therapy horse is a great way to not only support TTRC but also have a unique opportunity to learn about horsemanship and horse care. Mr. Geir is owned by our instructor, Julia Montagnet and is leased to TTRC as use as a lesson horse. His sponsorhip amount of $150 a month covers a shared cost of his upkeep including hay, grain, supplements, vet care and farrier care. As Geir’s sponsor you would receive recognition on our website and have four hours a month to come out and be involved in every day horsekeeping duties, such as conditioning training to keep him in shape as a lesson horse, watching a farrier visit, watching a vet visit, learning about property upkeep for horse properties, care and upkeep of horse tack and learning about equine nutrition.

Mr. Geir is a 22 year old Norwegian Fjord. He is our best horse for beginners and has been a lesson horse for everyone from adults who are just starting riding all the way to non-verbal kids on the Autism spectrum and kids with Down’s Syndrome. He’s patient and kind but also stubborn enough that he won’t just walk a pattern while a student sits on him. He does demand that students ride him correctly or he either will just stand there or go to the edge of the arena and eat grass and wait for the student to get the aids correct! He is the embodiment of a great lesson horse!
