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!

Alex + Scotty

My big, lanky Thoroughbred who is supposed to be an English horse is a big, tall, neck-reining trail boss! Scotty ended up 14th in Ranch Work at the makeover and received a TCA (Thoroughbred charities of America) award in Ranch Work at the Retired Racehorse Project.

Joy and Sugarfoot

I had not intended on adopting a horse that day, but in that moment, I knew I had to have her. It was an instant heart connection. I did not grow up with horses nor have had a lot of hands on experience, but Sugarfoot proved to be such a gentle and patient teacher.

Shawna + Little Bit

She is now solid, strong, fast, agile, confident, and one of the finest performance horses I have ever met. She is a gem, a gem that was sitting among so many other gems at a horse rescue just waiting for her chance to show the world what she could do.
