Meet some a few of our HART “graduates”, horses that were adopted from HART and on to new careers in their forever homes!
"Contained" aka "Taz" - He is doing fine schooling some training level fenced and showing at Beginner Novice. "Apple" - Apple has turned into the perfect pony for both of our children as well as an amazing companion for our other horse, Binx. Occasionally Apple can be found giving the kiddos mini lessons but the majority of his time is spent enjoying retirement. "Hook" - He lives on 40 acres in MO and is spoiled rotten. He roams the farm and eats all the hay he wants to and gets to plays with the other horses. We call him the Great Hay-Holeie, lol. "Dolly" - I saw her potential as a great partner for me. We have competed up to the low adults jumper classes I’m so thankful for HART for finding a horse like Dolly. Adopting an OTTB was one of the best decisions of my life. "Urban" - Urban was adopted about 7 years ago. He was a barrel horse for 4 years and been a pasture pet since he was 11. Urban is super sweet and chunky, and literally the biggest puppy in the world! "Copper" - Copper is a 19 year old gelding, who found his forever home with a mother and son team. Copper is still ridden, but mostly spends happy time with his friends in the pasture. "Denali" - Denali is an irreplaceable member of our family. He’s so incredibly talented and he’s too smart for his own good. He likes to get himself in trouble, but at least he’s cute while doing so. He’s currently doing 1st level dressage and loves it! "Sweet Arl" (on left) - She is doing great. She is on 10 acres of land in North Merritt Island. She shares our pasture with her "little brother" Duke", an 18-hand Appaloosa (LOL). She loves trail riding, jumping, and we've been doing shows together. Our goal is to take her to the big shows at the Ocala Equestrian Center within this year. "Baxter" aka "Beau" - Baxter, aka "Beau", is living his life on our family farm. He carried me all through high school in low children's, earning Reserve Champion for the year through HSITP. He is now retired and is living it. We spoil and love on him every single day. He's a big sweetheart! "Mayistoop" aka "Bubba" - Loving life with his forever buddy, only doing some trail rides, and when they both can go out, since they're attached at the hip! "Milo" - Milo is the best boy and truly a unicorn. I think my daughter may be showing him this year. If she has her way, he will be learning some basic cow work. Truly an all around guy. "Spirit" - Spirit, who will be 19, loves to drive HART graduate Sora crazy, and can open gates to go into his family's backyard! "Dr. Bob" - Here is Dr. Bob living the quiet life in Ocala. He is the greatest friend and has learned to be silly and have fun. Dr. Bob has learned how to play and always likes to remind me exactly how fast he is, even as a 20 year old. "Sora" - Sora is almost 14 and enjoying time with his "Mom" with fun hacks and trail riding! "Cheyenne" - Cheyenne was adopted from HART in 2010. She has proven to be a rock star in the western dressage ring, winning many ribbons. She just retired from shows and is enjoying time spent with her forever family! "Knowa" - Knowa has undergone a huge transformation and is the ambassador for her parent's rescue. "Red"- Red mostly stands around since he is an old man now, but is up for a trail ride now and then! "Valentino" - Valentino is at the University of Florida competing on the UF eventing team! "Channel" - Channel has made tremendous strides and is an ambassador for their family's new rescue! "Chance" - Chance, formerly known as "Zeus", is now living in Ocala with this young woman, living his best life!
