His show name is SS Serendipity so that begins our story…

My mom found Gordon through an adoption organization in Maryland called Days End Farm Horse Rescue. They told us of a place in Virginia where that had sent another horse for training. My mom started following the Equine Welfare Society on her Facebook and would see all of the horses going through training there.

Gordon popped up one day on the Facebook page. He was gorgeous but we aren’t quite ready to own a horse. A year went by and we would continue to see posts about Gordon. He was always just there. And then when we were ready to get our own horse we looked at a few others who just didn’t fit the bill.

My mom decided that we had to go to Virginia to see Gordon. So we went on a road trip to see him. All the way there my mom kept saying, “I have a good feeling about this”. When we got to the barn, we had to walk down a hill to get to the outdoor where Gordon was waiting with the trainers…as soon as we got to the top of the hill he looked up at us and we looked at him and knew immediately he was our horse.

And three weeks later he was. We couldn’t be happier with our choice to adopt. He gives us his everything, every single day. We found our forever horse through adoption.

What #RightHorse means to me

When we knew we were ready to get our own horse my Mom talked to my trainer. The first thing my mom said is that we would first look into adoption. There are so many horses that needs homes. People need to get over the part where it’s an adoption or a rescue horse. They are horses too. And they will give you their all because they are so happy to be loved again! Every horse deserves a little girl to love them. Right Horse is making this happen more often.

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.
