Breed Thoroughbred

Age 10

Sex Gelding

Color Grey

Height 16hh

Soon after starting a veterinary position at the racetrack, I fell in love with a big grey horse. I loved watching his exercise rider walk him back to the barn from the track with a loose rein, allowing him to eat grass along the way. When his trainer informed me it was time to retire the un-raced 5-year-old colt, I happily took him home. He has given me the most thrilling rides including gallops and swimming at the beach. I even rode him in my wedding!

Every horse has the right to a good home, we need to help horses in transition find a good home. Adoption programs need to be diligent and use all the resources available to match suitable (right) horses with a potential owner. This will ensure the best long-term outcome for horse and rider/owner.

Lindy + JoJo

JoJo is the right horse. And to think she would have taken the last trailer ride of her life, if it hadn’t been for Julie and her team doing what they do. I’m so thankful. Our barn is now full, and we are having fun camping, trail riding and making lots of memories.

Marissa + Nevero

We both felt like this was a sign from up above that Nevero was meant to be with me. I have used her in parades, drill team practice, trail rides and my “therapy” sessions when I’m having a bad day. Nevero has brought the joy of horses back to me that I thought I had lost.

Miranda + Blue Blue Sea

Blue Blue Sea lived more than seven years after that diagnosis and brought me some of the best years of my life. People who have heard his story tell me that there seemed something akin to destiny to it all, that the two of us were meant to be together.
