Shera + Story

I went to a rescue looking for a riding horse. I fell in love with a 10-day-old filly whose mother was rescued from the Indian reservation slaughter pipeline. I had never raised a foal, much less trained one. She is the light of my life and was such an easy baby to...

Olivia + Storm

In the summer of 2014, I adopted my heart horse Storm from a retirement foundation in NJ. Storm is a retired racehorse who has changed my life for the better. When I adopted him, I was suffering from really bad anxiety and my family was going through a hard time. I...

Lacey + Hana

It felt like there was an empty, horse-shaped hole in my life. I began to casually search for miniature horses to adopt. I had a visit lined up to go out of state to visit a rescue when my friend shared a Facebook post from a nearby rescue (Horse Shoe Equine Rescue in...

Rene + Right Horse

We have bought several horses at either auction or from individuals who couldn't ride them because of behavioral issues. One was a sweet, larger pony mare we bought for $175.00 at an auction. She was three, and had been to auctions three times. She sold as a sound and...

Carley + Blue

I got my first horse, a 2-year-old rescue, four years ago. I have ridden almost my whole life. I had no idea what I was looking for, I just wanted a horse, but the most amazing thing happened I found Blue. He was drugged when we got him, and after the drugs wore off...

Haley + Peaches

I'm going to graduate this semester with a Bachelor's in computer science and mathematics from the University of Texas at Austin. I'm moving to Manhattan at the end of this summer to work as a software engineer for a tech company. I've had horses my entire life. When...

Ashley + Lucky

I am a 30-year-young (I refuse to get "old") passionate woman. I have been around horses my entire life, off and on. Growing up an army brat then being an army wife didn’t offer up the chance to be a horse owner, but there was always the desire. I have long helped as...

Hilary + Right Horses

I "discovered" my passion for horses as a child collecting Breyer horses, even before having ever ridden. At 10 years old, I was finally signed up for horse camp by my parents and fell deeper in love with the animal. Riding was freedom, and as I grew older and gained...

Shelley + Beckham

My first horse adoption story is my PMU foal, Beckham. I was looking for a young project horse and learned about PMU foals. I started scanning rescue websites and came across a picture of a beautiful Perch/TB cross. I decided to sleep on it and had a dream about him...

Dani + Keili

I met Keili almost a year ago. She was very emotionally distant, unhealthy and had serious trust issues. We don't know a lot about Keili's back story, but we suspect she was abused because of her body language and fear of being touched around her face and ears. It...

Monica + Ghost

My daughter had been riding horses at a lesson barn for two years when we decided to purchase her a horse. We looked for the longest time. When we thought we had found the right one, the vet did not clear it during the pre-purchase exam due to some tendon issues – so...

Alison + Parmour

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...
