Our daughter is a true lover of anything with four legs. She had never ridden a horse or been around them much in her life. We never put much thought into adopting a horse, let alone one that seemed so big compared to our nine year old daughter.

Alyssa and Sugar Ray had an instant bond from the first time they laid eyes on each other. He has taught her so much in such a short time! She has learned to ride, care for and have a deep connection with Sugar Ray. He is very patient and forgiving of her flaws; he truly takes care of her, both in and out of the saddle.

They have such an understanding; he loves when she bathes him and does anything she asks of him. As soon as he sees or hears her his ears perk up and he comes looking for his person. They had attended a rodeo camp and had numerous great rides together. When they are together she is more confident and calm. He is truly her #righthorse.

What #RightHorse means to me

Our #righthorse means having a a gentle soul that will always be there for our child; no matter what is going on in her life. We look forward to watching her grow with such a solid relationship in her life.

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.
