Breed American Quarter Horse

Age 18

Sex Mare

Color Bay

Height 15.2hh

After only six months of riding lessons, I wanted a horse. I would not recommend this, however, because it made it easy for people to take advantage of me. I was tricked into getting a horse that had many issues. Although she has a very sweet, calm personality on the ground, she is a different horse under saddle.

After almost two years of trying different training techniques and medications, it became clear one night that our fate together was not what I thought it would be the night she flipped over for the third time. I knew then that neither she nor I were happy. Although I always imagined we would end up going on trails and competing in local shows, that is just not right for us. We are right for each other, and I have never stopped believing that for even a moment. I believe I was given this horse to love. She is my #righthorse.

What #RightHorse means to me

Right Horse means the horse that saved me, taught me to love, and taught me to appreciate the little things in life.

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.

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.

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.
