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.

The right horse is a soul horse. They may not be the prettiest or most athletic, but something about them fills a piece of your heart that you never knew was empty. They shape you and make an impact on your life that lasts forever.

Katie + Pilgrim

The moment they gave me the green light to apply, I went to work on the adoption application. A week later Pilgrim was finally part of our family!
We have stuck right by each other’s side and always will. I am thankful I adopted my best friend.

Ashlee + Daisy Duke

I started interacting with her and had an overwhelming feeling she had picked me and was my heart horse. I spent sleepless nights thinking about her and what I should do. I came to the conclusion if I didn’t adopt her I would always regret it.
