Putting a Bow on Kitt’s Senior Wellness Restoration

Hooray Kitty!!! After three months of optimizing Kitt’s weight, soundness, and conditioning, Kitt has made his way back to Bearfoot Ranch to participate in the Special Olympics over Georgia program, and begin his new career as a therapy horse. We are all so excited to see Kitt shine in his new environment. 

Look at the before & afters in both Kitt’s physical & emotional wellness

Physical Health

Pre-Senior Wellness Restoration

Post-Senior Wellness Restoration

Kitty arrived to Dreamer’s Knoll with exhausted suspensories, an arthritic front left fetlock, complete muscle atrophy, and a need for about 200 lbs. Through proper nutrition, BEMER therapy, Rock Tape, body conditioning, massage, and some serious TLC, Kitt has been restored to a serviceably sound, round, strong senior-citizen ready to jump into a career of therapy lessons!

A special shout out to Tribute Equine Nutrition for supporting Kitt’s Senior Wellness Restoration!!! IMG_4215

Emotional Wellness

Pre-Senior Wellness Restoration

When Kitty arrived at Dreamer’s Knoll, he had very little confidence and minimal energy. He lived on the bottom of the pecking order and showed little interest in relationships with horses and people.

Post-Senior Wellness Restoration

Now that he feels like a rock-star and has a reason to enjoy people, Kitty has become charismatic, saucy, and quite a mares’ man! He takes a morning gallop around the pasture, pushes his girls around, and throws a little zest in his step!

Please know that Kitt is available for sponsorship! While he thrives in the therapy program, we all know that every horse deserves to be loved by someone unconditionally at least once in his life. Kitt has paid his dues. He’s done it all and has the jewelry to prove it! For anyone interested in being the next step in Kitt’s journey, please contact
