Ella Yonkers


Ella Yonkers, of Brunswick, NY, was first introduced to horses as a little girl by her mother and quickly fell in love with the animals, people and the environment. At 22 years old, she now has two regular-sized horses and three miniature horses.

Ella enjoys working with “the older generation” and looks forward to using her horses to provide therapy to the elderly.  She also hopes to work with young kids and provide pony rides at birthday parties. In anticipation, she has established her own business called “Henri and Friends” (named after her horses), maintains a Facebook page for the enterprise and will soon launch a website.  Ella is planning her first birthday party engagement and will host an information day in May to get the word out about the business.

Ella’s love of all things horses has set her on the right track for a successful future. That’s what makes Ella One of a Kind.
