Holly + Gilly

Holly + Gilly

Bringing Gilly home is the best decision I have ever made. I love learning to ride. My two young daughters love being with horses and spend hours at the barn helping me work and taking lessons. My husband and I are sharing a new passion.

Stacey + Raphael

Some days we just stand together, some days I groom him, others we go for walks or head to the arena and play. I tell him he is my favorite and how much I love him. He nudges me gently with his nose or will rest his head on mine.

Melissa + Shadow

Melissa + Shadow

I decided to go and meet her. She was a black beauty and she loved to be around people. I quickly fell in love with her personality. Shadow is currently in training I am working with the trainer to learn more about her.

Stephanie + Precious

Stephanie + Precious

She has far exceeded my expectations and surprises me every day with what an incredible horse she is. She loves everyone and is so funny. She constantly has me laughing. She’s the sweetest horse with my kids.

Sam + Evelyn + Florrie

Sam + Evelyn + Florrie

As their health improved, their personalities blossomed and they became as tame as puppy dogs. They often inhabit the yard, follow us into the garden, come when called, and have perfect manners.

Angela + Lorien

Angela + Lorien

He seems to enjoy our time together, always coming to me when I arrive at his pasture and always staying with me after our outing and his halter is off. I feel so extraordinarily lucky to have him in my life.

When I saw a thoroughbred mare with such a kind eye listed online on Monty’s adoption page–with the prediction that she would make an excellent kid’s horse–I was intrigued.

Caitlin + Joker

Caitlin + Joker

He loves to jump and we do some low level eventing. He has taught me to never give up on your goals and even though you may be a little different, if you are determined, nothing can stop you.

Meghan + Sterling

Meghan + Sterling

Sterling has saved my life in so many ways and I have been able to get through tough times in my life thanks to him. He is my #RightHorse because I know I can depend on him to understand me.

Deb + Tobey

Deb + Tobey

I just kept getting drawn back to him, I absolutely couldn’t stop thinking about him even though he wasn’t at all what I was looking for. Now, we’re in the running for a buckle this season.

Kelsey + Ringo Starr

Kelsey + Ringo Starr

I was excited for a challenge. I wanted to build a bond with this horse and I think he felt that way too. I couldn’t look at any other horse there; it had to be him. Soon after, I brought him home.

Amie + Dante + Lance

Amie + Dante + Lance

We marveled at what a perfect fit Dante was for us, and how we never would have connected with him had Horses Haven not transferred him to their rescue. We are forever grateful to both adoption groups.
