John + Manny

by | Mar 2018 | Story

Breed Appendix Quarter Horse

Age 7

Sex Gelding

Color Gray

Height 15.1hh

My girlfriend who has been riding for over 20 years took me to the Lorain County Fair, where I hung out with horses for the first time and was hooked! After that, I knew I wanted a horse, but I wanted a rescue.

We found Manny on Facebook and went to go meet him. I knew right away that he was my Right Horse! He was rescued off of a feedlot by the lady I adopted him from. He is a 7-year-old Appendix Gelding. He has severe Ringbone from a previous injury, and whip scars all over him. Poor Manny had a terrible past, but not anymore! Now he is the most spoiled horse around! He can’t be ridden, so he is my companion horse. I do ground work with him, and we just hang out together. He even follows me without a lead line. I made him an Instagram account so people can follow his adventures. He is Manny The Brave Horse!

What #RightHorse means to me

Finding that horse who you have a special bond with. And saving the lives of horses!

Tara + Gizmo

Cancer and turning 50 shook me into a now or never moment. My daughter was 16 and riding at least three times a week always asking me when I was going to get my own horse, so I could trail ride with her and it hit me… now was the time!

Devon + Mogul

The lesson program would get a lot of “retiree” racehorses and give them a second career, however, in Mogul’s case, it was his third. He was so much fun to ride…even though he had no idea why he was no longer supposed to just go as fast as he could. I was the third person to ride him at our barn, but the first to ask to do it again…

Leigh Anne + Cicada

Cicada Faith was about 1 1/2 to 2 years old in a kill pen waiting to be shipped to slaughter when I found her. A Facebook group had posted her picture online and I immediately fell in love, however, I was not looking for a second horse at the time…
