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!

When I found him, he was not well cared for, but no one had ridden him in a long time. I walked right into the corral, slid the halter in and touched him all over. Led him around, then saddled and bridled him. I decided to hop on, and we rode around…
