Gryphon was a Hanoverian/Quarter Horse cross who had many jobs throughout his lifetime. He performed several disciplines including dressage and hunter/jumpers, and was also a lesson horse. In 2014 he was adopted by Jack and Sam Couch, both of whom were volunteers here at High & Mighty. So began Gryphon’s career as a therapy horse. For almost 4 years Gryphon was the backbone of our program. We could put any child or adult on him and he would take care of them. He retired in 2017 at the age of 29! In his honor, we have started a scholarship fund to ensure we can continue providing equine therapy to everyone in need.
