Natascha + Lucy

by | Oct 2018 | Story

Breed Arabian

Age 13

Sex Mare

Color Grey

Height 14.2hh

I heard from my friend about “Days End Farm Horse Rescue” in Maryland and she mentioned they had gotten a few Arabians in so I went and checked them out. After I had a few visits it came down to my grey flea bitten Lucy. She was still kind of green under saddle so I had to work on my communication skills with her but I fell in love with her gait and personality.

Once we arrived at Adoption Day I couldn’t really believe it… I was so excited. She did great and adjusted fine. Once she had settled we started groundwork, so I was able to understand and read her better. It is so vital in my opinion to have a solid connection on ground before you go in the saddle. Lucy was and still is so very smart, willing and forgiving, I could have not asked for a better partner. We are riding the trails and enjoying every bit of it.

What #RightHorse means to me

It means to me that finding the horse that matches what you’re looking for and that can’t be rushed. Make sure you know what you are looking for and start by looking at respectable Rescues like Days End Farm Horse Rescue and adopt.

Eileen + Sweetie

She is so much a part of my life that I cannot imagine not having her. I give credit to the Lord for leading me to her that hot summer day in 2015. I have trained a lot of good horses over the past six decades, but I have to say that I am as proud of this mare as any horse I ever dealt with.

Laura + Moxie

I often catch Maddie in the pasture with Moxie just talking to him and hugging on him. I would love to know what all they talk about. He attentively listens to her and seems to love her hugs.

Lacey + Royal

The volunteers constantly asked “When are you taking him home?” Finally, the day came for me to move on to start my own business. As soon as that decision had been made, so had another. I couldn’t leave him behind. In the two years of being there, our bond was undeniable and unique.
