Adopt a Horse
After Niche was registered with the Jockey Club she was sold to a hunter-jumper barn and suffered an injury from being cast. They tried to sell her for $300 unsuccessfully, as they said she would have to be put out to pasture for a year to heal. She ended up at the killer-sale. FOHRAA rescued her and immediately called the prospective owner that was looking for a horse. “She is way to big, and way too young” she said, but they bonded. This, almost 17 hand horse, is willingly learning to be a dressage horse, that loves to jump and will cut barrels like the best of the quarter horses! It’s like watching a Winnebago turn a tight corner, but she does it like the best of them! By the way, Niche has never had a lame step since she arrived at FOHRAA.
This is just one of many great stories.

There are so many touching stories, and we often hear that this is cheaper (and more beneficial) than psychotherapy! We have a great community – from the very young to the 80-year-old that still gets his horse out. Watching that is simply remarkable…a bond that cannot be broken. There is something about the smell of manure, the touch of a horse and having a 1200 pound animal follow you around like a puppy dog!
