Many folks come to us with specific criteria in mind: wanting a horse that can do gymkhanas, or work on their ranch, or jump around at a show. Very, very few people come requesting companion horses.
We often hear the response of “But they can’t be ridden!”
But they can be loved. They can be groomed, they can be hugged, they can be your child’s best friend, they can be your faithful partner. They can teach your young horse the ropes of how to be a wonderful horse. They can help you build confidence, they can supervise your herd, they can wiggle their way into your heart with no plans of relinquishing that position. They can be a true rescue: done with nothing but selflessness, generosity and love in your heart.
So while companion horses cannot be ridden, we believe that what they offer spans beyond just what can occur under saddle.
We ask that you consider opening your heart and your home to one of our companion horses. Everyone needs a bit of kindness, especially these days, and our horses would sure appreciate it!
