I’ve ridden since I was two and I am now turning 50. I had to take a break from horses for 25 years. As I approached 50 I knew I wanted to bring all the things back into my life that filled my soul and horses were a big part of that.

I began getting involved with a rescue called Love this Horse. I adopted a senior horse from Love This Horse for my five year old daughter. We would spend time with the horses at the rescue and one day there was this beautiful full bodied 1/2 Arab who caught my eye. The feeling was mutual because she apparently wasn’t very friendly with anyone else at the rescue.

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.

She hadn’t even been ridden yet but ultimately it became apparent Daisy Duke and I had a very special connection and bond. She smiles when she sees me and my heart explodes just a little. I feel complete having her. I’m so grateful she and I crossed paths. She takes great care of me and vise versa.

What #RightHorse means to me

It means knowing your dream has come true, not to mention a human and the right horse getting a “do over”…. together.

Cindy + Paladin

As the months went by he would reach out and lightly touch me with his nose, just to be close to me. I think that was a big step for him. He tried so hard to do what I asked. He really loved me, I think, before I loved him.

Katelyn + Champ

I fell in love with Champ and just had to have him. Champ wasn’t like the other horses. There is something about him that I just fell in love with. We connected so well and it’s like we understood one another.

Beth + Una

The love they share for one another is so special it’s hard to put it into words. Una’s eyes light up when she hears her voice. Una still follows Cariana everywhere she goes. It is a beautiful thing to see the love these two have for each other.
