Heartwood Herd

Horses love the social interaction with people. They bring their gifts of intuition, their innate tendency to readily respond to the feelings  of the person they are interacting with, and their gentleness and genuine desire to help.  At Heartwood we have two beautiful mares that actively participate in sessions with clients.




Samsong is a thoroughbred mare who came to Heartwood in October, 2010. She is a retired SARI horse and is very gentle. Sammy loves people and is very affectionate. When people look into Sammy’s eyes, they connect to her heart. She loves attention, loves games and returns love to all who offer it. Standing at 15.2 hands she is smart and committed to helping.  Born 1994.
