Alison + Parmour

by | Jun 2017 | Story

My mom and I were called in on eight abandoned horses, and since my mother is a humane law enforcement officer for animals, we were told we had to figure out who the owners were or where they came from before they were abandoned. So we did just that – except for one horse who didn’t have any papers or history.

We decided while he was under our care that he needed someone special. I began working with him, and we just clicked. At first, he was nervous and wouldn’t respond to anyone. He was initially hard to catch in the pasture, but now he is always right in my back pocket. He has become such a saint, and I have begun training him in dressage and over fences, which he excels in.

Paramour and I have grown together. He has made me a better rider. I don’t deserve such a willing and trying partner, but I am lucky enough to have one. — This is what “right horse” means to me. A right horse is not necessarily a perfect horse, but a horse that brings out the best in you and can teach you many things. The right horse is a horse that grows with you and gives you strength, confidence and patience.

One day I was on their site and saw Gretta’s picture show up. She was a nice little mare, trotting around a round pen in the picture. She had a kind yet spirited look in her eyes and I just knew she was my horse.

Now he stands still for everything and we have started jumping! Turns out, he is a one-person horse, he won’t let anyone else on him but me. Because of that, I have decided to keep him as my forever horse!

He has shattered glass ceilings for his breed and for repurposed horses. He has given me wings and taught my to fly with the best of them. Had all of this not happened, though, I wouldn’t love him any less.
