Welcome to A&B Miniature Therapy Ranch owned by Allan and Bonnie Prestegard.
We have a handsome miniature buckskin stallion “Billy The Kid” who captures people’s heart with his amazing confidence and personality. “Grace and Mercy” who is our beautiful silver bay dun mare who is elegant in her movements and as sweet as she can be. Also, to our family we have added “Promise Pearl” ( her barn name). She is our perlino buckaroo mare who we are using for breeding and Nursing home visits. She stands at 29 inches. Pearl and Billy will be expecting in 2016.
These miniature’s do have a purpose and we call it our “Purpose Program”.
What is our purpose program? We want our horses to meet your needs. Whether visiting Nursing homes, a pet for your grandchild, show horse atmosphere, parade horse, or a trick horse. God made them to bring you joy. What a awesome pleasure to have such a wonderful animal like these to bring comfort and joy to people’s lives.
All our therapy horses are AMHA/AMHR registered and handled every day. They are always stimulated with ground training and tricks.
We promote healthy well bred, all around miniature horses, to be used to the desire of the holder. We like to stimulate our therapy horses to all sorts of circumstances. They learn ground manners by using Natural Horsemanship training. No mechanical methods. This is where we make that connection of trust in all circumstances. When that is accomplished, they are ready to go for outings to the nursing homes, schools, hospice programs.
We continue their training with cart driving, obstacle courses, tricks, jumping, parade walks, and showing atmosphere.
