Natascha + Lucy

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.

Kendra + Cinnabar + Misty

Her name was Cinnabar and I like to think that she adopted me. She told me in no uncertain terms that she was meant to come home with me. I rode her and took her for a trail ride with some of the ranch staff.

Tara + Vera

I didn’t just pick her, she picked me. Here was this horse that no one could touch, and she chooses to love me. I know that she’s my “right horse”, because she has shown me time and time again that she sees me as her right person.

Dusty + Belle

Seven months after I found Belle, I founded AHRE with the rescue of Helena. I’m asked often if Belle was a rescue. I did rescue her to some degree and she to some degree, she rescued me.
