I am a 16-year-old Arabian/Welsh Cob mare. I’ve been adopted by Terry, a compassionate man who will be a groundwork partner with me for the mutual therapy we can offer each other. The very first time Terry and I saw each other, we hit it off. I have never responded to a stranger the way I did to him. Something about him…I couldn’t stay far away as long as he was there. I’ll be spending the next couple of weeks at FSHR and then, I will go home with Terry. I am so excited!
I came to Fresh Start after my loving owner’s homestead was lost in a fire. I have always known love, and am great with children and people with special needs and disabilities. For the past three years, I have been a “Program Horse” for the informal empowerment program that FSHR offers to at-risk youth and people with developmental disabilities.
My humans at Fresh Start are proud of my accomplishments. So am I. During the course of my time at FSHR, I have helped at least dozen individuals with developmental disabilities, one special-ed youth, and one at-risk youth. I’ve also provided recreational riding for volunteers, children, my past sponsor, and potential adopters of other horses.
However, my time for these uses has passed, and I am ready to belong to a family all my own.
