She was a rescue who had been waiting to be adopted for a long time, despite having several people very interested in her. She was green and needed a confident person to help her overcome her uncertainty. When I met this stunning little mare…

After my illness and during reinvention time a dream began to take shape. I really had no dream or hopes after my aneurysm at all. My biggest hope was to make it to the day and the night. So, all of a sudden there was this equine shaped idea…

The first few attempts were not successful. I was disappointed but I understood. Any horse owner is going to be guarded about the liability issues of allowing an inexperienced person (childhood riding lessons notwithstanding) handle their…

Within minutes of working with him, I knew he was my Right Horse. We brought him home that day. It has been four months now, and he has amazed us at how smart he is. We have gone to four shows and always places in the ribbons. Recently…

I really don’t know who saved who, but I am pretty sure Trixie saved me. If it were not for Julie Copper and Copper Horse Crusade, I would not have had the amazing opportunity to meet and work with Trixie. Trixie had a kind of “bossy” past, but that…

We adopted Peanut (formerly known as Java), a miniature horse. She fell in love with the moment she saw him! She began training him that day. She worked with him every day in the hopes that they would do well during their first show together.

All my girls have been retired for five or more years. Two years after relocating across the country (again) to the Pacific Northwest, I felt I was settled enough to start a casual search for my next trail partner. I hadn’t ridden at all except for short rides…

I knew in my heart rescue was for me. I saw a photo of a cute, young, black horse in southern Oregon. We drove 350 miles to see him. Upon arrival, Connie Willard from Project Spirit Horse Rescue said, “You should meet Hershey’s friend Andre.” They…

After only six months of riding lessons, I wanted a horse. I would not recommend this, however, because it made it easy for people to take advantage of me. I was tricked into getting a horse that had many issues. Although she has a…
