Truth about rescue horses...

Ok, I have been debating for quite some time about whether or not to address this issue...and I have decided its about time to do it!

I must get at least 4 emails a week asking if our horses are ridable and what problems they have, because they are rescue horses. Almost always with a connotation that SOMETHING must be wrong with them...NOT THE CASE!!!

NOT all rescue horses have problems, in our case and in the case of many other horses, their only crime was not being fast enough to earn their keep. MANY of our horses have gone onto become show horses, eventers, hunters, jumpers, polo ponies, trail horses, pleasure horses, 3 day eventers and on and on and on...

I will post more details on this nightly...I can only begin to scratch the surface in this first post...stay tuned for more posts about rescue horses aren't all crippled and unridable (though some are) or why a rescue horse should be your next horse!
