I'll never forget the phone call from my friend, "Hey someone dropped off a bunch of weanlings at the sale barn that are super sick and malnourished, will you help me pick one out?" The story goes that in the middle of the night someone dropped off 10 yearlings that...

Like so many people, horses piqued my curiosity and called to my soul. Yet, unlike my new network of horse-loving friends, my life had not lent itself to growing up around horses or riding. In 2008, I applied to be a barn volunteer at Colorado Horse Rescue (CHR) with...

I adopted my horse from New Vocations in 2014. I had recently retired my mare, who we bought for less than $3k when I was 10 years old, from the upper levels of Eventing. I was on the look out for my next partner. I wanted a horse with potential, athleticism, and a...

Jody + Jax + Fancy

I adopted Jax from Rocky's Rescue and Rehabilitation in Maryland in December. He was three months old. I later adopted Jax's mom, Fancy. She required a special home due to having recurring uveitis. I can't say enough good things about these horses or the rescue. Have...

Clegg's Playboy belonged to a family friend, Betty, for over 20 years. She had a plan to have him move to my farm if anything happened to her. Don't worry, Betty is fine, but she did move to an assisted living apartment complex. As planned, Playboy moved here. He's 35...

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...

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...
