"Bonfire Flash" APHA Paint gelding February 10, 2000 I've heard myself called a work of art. It looks like I have a whale, a unicorn and a heart on me. I'm sure if you look closely, you'll find more art. I don't remember much about my early years. When Ashley bought me, I knew I was home. She was my person. We went on so many adventures together-trail rides, working cows, swimming and more. But Ashley needed to move to Alaska to marry her fiance. She felt it would be too hard on me to travel so far by trailer and on a big boat. She made the hard decision to give me to The Camelot Center where she knew I'd be taken care of. I like to take selfies to send to her so Debbie helps me. That makes Ashley happy to get a picture.
Paint mare June 30, 2012 I'm the baby of The Camelot Center family. Our Program Director, Debbie, bought my mom sight unseen from an equine rescue in December 2011. I was still in my mom's belly and no one knew when I would be born. I was told that the staff, riders and volunteers had a contest to see when I would be born. They chose the month and date that they thought I would arrive. June 30, 2012 was the lucky day! I'm 9 years old now and like independent riders best. Maybe someday I will learn to be a better therapy horse for all kinds of riders. My favorite thing is to have my neck, shoulders and, most of all, my butt scratched. It feels so good.

Quarter Horse Gelding April 4, 2000 I was 13 years old when I came to The Camelot Center. Debbie came to look at me upon the advice of their farrier. I was lame on the left front shoulder but the farrier said it was fixable. Debbie saw something in me that she liked so brought home. With massages and corrective shoeing, I was once again sound. Steady as a rock, easy to ride and so loveable are some of the things I hear riders say. They also call me Eoyore sometimes as my favorite speed is slow and I'm ready to do whatever people want. I used to do cowboy obstacle courses and love trail rides. I'm one of the favorites in the barn but that's our secret! Owned by The Camelot Center.
"Storm LE-LA" Halflinger gelding March 3, 1998 When I was 6 months old, the Best family bought my half brother and me. We had a great life with them learning to pull a cart, a wagon and a beautiful white carriage. We were in parades, weddings, celebrated anniversaries and so much more. When the Best family retired from their business, Best Carriage Service, and decided to travel the USA in a RV, they searched for the perfect home for me. After many interviews, visits to both my home and The Camelot Center, they found that home. And my half brother, Mike, got to come with me! Donated by Jim and Sandy Best of Best Carriage Service. Owned by The Camelot Center.
"My Country Sam JK" Halflinger gelding May 5, 1998 My story is much the same as my half brother, Storm. Except he forgot to tell you that I am the more handsome one! I like being at The Camelot Center. I meet all kinds of people there-small children and adults, all sizes ages and abilities. I like playing games in the arena with them. Donated by Jim and Sandy Best of Best Carriage Service. Owned by The Camelot Center.
Missouri Fox Trotter Mare April 14, 2004 I came with Mandy as we've been best friends for a long time. I'm glad my former owners, Robin and Neil DeRue of Stallion Services, chose The Camelot Center. People love to brush me and I really like that. I like being fussed over and scratched. I'll gladly leave my food if you want to pet me or love on me. I've mainly been used as a trail riding horse. All of the riders seem to like me even though I'm a gaited horse. That means I move differently than most of the other Camelot horses. I'm a very smooth ride! Owned by The Camelot Center.
Belgian/Quarter Horse Cross Mare April 4, 1998 Big boned girl - that's what I am. I'm a very big girl weighing in at 1310 pounds! My family moved to Florida so they offered me to The Camelot Center. I ride and drive so I have a custom made cart and harness that came with me. Someday, I will take the Camelot staff for a ride. I'm a gentle giant though. I think I like it here and having so many wonderful people ride me. I also like Impact 14% grain. I could use a bigger girth to hold my saddle on. I need between a 36-38 girth that costs about $50.
"Ain't He An Asset" AQHA Quarter Horse Gelding March 7, 2000 Hi, I'm Mr. Photgenic! I love cameras and will happily pose for you. I know I'm handsome! I used to go to horse shows and jump big fences. My previous owner liked to ride English, so we competed in all kinds of classes. But then the veterinarian said that I had laminitis and it wasn't safe to jump anymore. So my mom thought I needed a new job when I was only 9 years old. I came to The Camelot Center so people of all ages and abilities could learn to ride. I'm such a good teacher that I've taught lots of children and adults to canter. Boy, is that fun! My favorite thing on the wish list is alfalfa pellets. The staff soak them so they are soft. They help keep my body in good condition since a Senior horse.
"Pam's Precious Legacy" Halflinger Mare March 5, 2004 I was a bottle baby because my mom got sick. My human family took good care of me though. I learned about saddles and bridles and I was rode a little bit. When I was 10, my human mom thought I needed to learn more and have a "real" job. She took me to The Camelot Center and now I have a real job working with kids! I hurt my back leg a few years ago and had a stress fracture. The Camelot staff and veterinarians took very good care of me so I am fine now. I like rubber water buckets. I'd also like some type of feeder that I can't break since I love to rub on them. I don't mean for them to crack and break

Paint March 11, 2016 I had a family, but the children outgrew me. Luckily, Michael, who lives by The Camelot Center, came to see me. He thought I would be perfect for a therapy pony. So he brought me here for an evaluation. I think I passed as a nice lady said I could stay forever! That made me very happy. I am brushed a lot and eat very good food. I’ve made new friends, both human and horses. When I am done with my training, I heard that I am going to be a therapy pony to help the riders from Childrens Rehabilitation Center. I believe I am going to like it here!
"Ramblin' High Cash" APHA Paint Gelding April 15, 2001 I was born in Kentucky. I moved to Millersburg, Ohio and became a trail horse. When I was 7 years old, a little 8 year old girl fell in love with me and I went home with her. We had fun trail riding at first but then I moved to The Camelot Center to be a therapy horse. In 2014, my best friend joined 4-H where I was her Ranch Pleasure/Trail horse. We won High Point in Trail and Reserve Champion in Ranch Pleasure. I was even an actor in the Sleepy Hollow play for a few years. The Headless Horseman was there, too, but I was prettier. Now I like being with the kids, especially the Childrens Rehabilitation Center riders. I'm now diabetic so I need a very expensive special grain called Enrich Plus. And I can't have sweets so my girl buys me diabetic horse treats. Owned by Emily Jones.
