We marveled at what a perfect fit Dante was for us, and how we never would have connected with him had Horses Haven not transferred him to their rescue. We are forever grateful to both adoption groups.
Since then he has been stuck to my hip and has found trust in me. And I have found a friend in him. We are so blessed to have found this guy and he will forever have a home with us. Every equestrian needs a Warrior in their life.
We couldn’t have asked for a better pony. Kentucky Humane Society Equine Cares had a great process. They made sure it was a safe match and shared all the background information on her.
I just knew this was my girl. With the support of my family, who knew I wouldn’t make this decision lightly, we decided to adopt her. I cannot tell you how much joy she brings to my life, I love her to pieces!
She has picked my husband as “her person” and he loves her. We love our horses and cannot imagine life without them. We hope that we have changed their lives in the way they’ve changed ours!
One day I was on their site and saw Gretta’s picture show up. She was a nice little mare, trotting around a round pen in the picture. She had a kind yet spirited look in her eyes and I just knew she was my horse.
Now he stands still for everything and we have started jumping! Turns out, he is a one-person horse, he won’t let anyone else on him but me. Because of that, I have decided to keep him as my forever horse!
He has shattered glass ceilings for his breed and for repurposed horses. He has given me wings and taught my to fly with the best of them. Had all of this not happened, though, I wouldn’t love him any less.
For the past seven years, he has heard all my secrets and caught my tears. He’s taught me everything I know as far as riding goes, and how to be a better human. Leo will always be my heart horse.
We walk, trot, and canter fully racked up or bareback with a halter. She’s my best friend, my heart horse, my right horse. All it took was showing her that there was someone out there that wouldn’t give up on her.
I look forward to having this lovely horse for the rest of his life and having all sorts of adventures together. I am planning on learning to do liberty work, western dressage, and trail riding with him. He is my perfect match!
I was right, their connection on the ground and in the saddle was instant, my daughter felt so safe and connected to her.She hadn’t been adopted yet because she was waiting for us and now I understand…these two are magic together and a match made in horse rescue heaven.
