Color Red roan

Height 15.2hh

As I began getting my confidence in riding back after three strokes, I was looking for a horse who is sure-footed and could help me with my balance. In nursing school at the time, I knew I needed a laid-back horse who did not mind me not showing up every day. Along came Beauty into Heart of Phoenix Equine Rescue at the age of 20. A draftie whom I fell in love with at first sight. I took her on a week trial to see how we meshed. Of course very little steering and brakes, in the beginning, I still wanted to grow with her. We have different views on fun to this day, I like dressage and she loves the trails. BEAUTY IS MY HEART HORSE! She is patient with me in trails when I feel out of balance and doesn’t mind the occasional screaming and sheer panic. I do not get too upset in return when she throws a buck in down centerline and goes out of the arena during a dressage test! It is a give and take and a wonderful time to grow in horsemanship with her.

What #RightHorse means to me

It means an ever growing and changing partnership. To me is it Beauty, my heart horse.

Lindy + JoJo

JoJo is the right horse. And to think she would have taken the last trailer ride of her life, if it hadn’t been for Julie and her team doing what they do. I’m so thankful. Our barn is now full, and we are having fun camping, trail riding and making lots of memories.

Marissa + Nevero

We both felt like this was a sign from up above that Nevero was meant to be with me. I have used her in parades, drill team practice, trail rides and my “therapy” sessions when I’m having a bad day. Nevero has brought the joy of horses back to me that I thought I had lost.

Miranda + Blue Blue Sea

Blue Blue Sea lived more than seven years after that diagnosis and brought me some of the best years of my life. People who have heard his story tell me that there seemed something akin to destiny to it all, that the two of us were meant to be together.
