Stories

Every horse has a story to tell. The lame, the healthy, the sick and the strong all have a long history of their interaction with people. Like little kids, horses come into this world ready to trust us, ready to be the greatest horse in the world. It’s the people who change them. There are so many people who don’t understand, those who walk through life never knowing the beauty, the gentleness, the majesty of the horse. There are those who beat them, who punish them for imagined crimes, who starve them, who kill them, who laugh at their fallen, dying bodies and who dine on their flesh. Their eyes may see these pages, but their souls will not. They will never know what bonding means, what trust can do, why a whisper is stronger than a whip. That you have come this far in our website tells me that you are one of us who love horses. You come here to read these stories because of what is in your heart. As we read we will laugh, we will cry, and we will understand. Though a thousand miles might separate us, we are of the same blood, we know what the other feels. We are the horse lovers. We stand together, healing the wounds, picking up the weak, the old, the damaged, the unwanted. We bring them into our barns, feed them, love them and hope that someday they might forgive the humans for what they have done. Some of these stories are from before we started Habitat for Horses, some are very recent. If you would like to keep up with our ongoing activities, subscribe to our newsletter at the bottom of this page. None of this is possible without your help. Your financial support is necessary to help those horses that will need us today and tomorrow. Please, for the life of a horse, go to our Support Us pages and click the “Donate Online” link.
