Maverick is fitting in very well at his new home!

Thank you so much to Carol for the update on the little Arabian gelding formerly known as “Jiminy Cricket” and now renamed “Maverick” by her grandkids! She reports that he is fitting in very well in his new home and is energetic, curious, and friendly.

“I adore him”

Thank you to Brenda for this update on her adopted MHARF horse, Bandit. She adopted Bandit after he competed in the 2013 Trainer’s Challenge w/ trainer Brittany Langager.

“Bandit lives at our home now, with an older gelding and 2 mini donkeys. I adore him. And the icing on the cake is that it turns out he likes to do casual trail rides, which is what I like to do.”

“Bug is our first horse, and a special mare at that.”

Thank you so much to Sara for sharing this update on her adopted MHARF horse Bug! (You may remember this little mustang mare from our 2015 Trainer’s Challenge where she and her trainer Maddie Kanda were winners of Third Overall Highpoint and People’s Choice.) We are thrilled to see how far she and her talented young rider have come!

“We adopted Bug four years ago and she is our main pony for our four children. We have been looking to add another as she and our daughter (Bug’s main rider) have really formed an amazing bond. We took an epic road trip to Lexington, Kentucky for a Pony Club festival and were able to witness their hard work together. I’ve included some pictures. Bug is our first horse and a special mare at that. I imagine she will be part of our family forever.”

Update from Cameryn and Epona

We love this beautiful picture of MHARF alum Epona and her adopter Cameryn! Epona originally came to us in a March 2019 humane case. In September of that year she competed in our Promise of the Future in-hand training competition for young horses with Cameryn and her sister Morgan (winning first place!). Cameryn reports she and Epona are now spending many happy hours together riding.

“I’m so excited for what’s to come!”

We love posting these updates! This young Arabian mare is Faline (born at MHARF in 2018 after her pregnant mother Foxy came in during a humane case). Faline was adopted by Tonya in 2019 after competing in our 2019 Promise of the Future In-Hand competition with trainer Anna Hill. Thank you, Tonya, for giving Faline a wonderful home and for sending the photos and the update:
“I want to share some photos of Faline’s first time with a bareback pad and rider. She was very calm and stood nicely for me— all of our groundwork has paid off. I’m so excited for what’s to come!”😊
