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!

I began fostering Rose once she was weaned from her dam and she quickly wormed her way into my heart. I loved everything about her from her sassiness to her willing attitude to learn new things. I just knew deep down she was the right horse for me.

Mindy + CT

We did our pattern and all I can remember is stopping and backing at that final cone and holding my tears back. It was the best pattern I have ever had. He was an absolute all-star and I was so excited that all our hard work had shown.

Sara + Luke

He has humbled me, taught me, and given me his heart and trust. Together, we can accomplish more than I could have ever imagined. Of all the mustangs I could have ended up with, Luke was the right horse.
