Babysitters Wanted! Adopt or Foster a young horse today!

Babysitters Wanted! Adopt or Foster a young horse today!

i Jul 18, 2017 by Tiffany Ring

Everyone loves babies, right? GSH considers every horse under 3 a baby since we start them under saddle at three. That doesn't mean they don't learn things or have training, but it's age appropriate prior to that.

We love our babies and have a hard time imagining them elsewhere. But the truth is babies just are hard to adopt out. Everyone wants[...]

To celebrate he attended an event at Petco where he met many, many people, and got to go from his little pen out to the paddock the other babies including Arden are living in. I took video but he didn't do anything fun, just wandered[...]

A Moment of Contentment and Relaxation

i Jan 05, 2017 by Tiffany Ring

The lovely sorrel mare gave me a moment today that reminded us WHY we do this and a reminder of why we have a policy of treating each horse individually. You see, that's Vanessa. She's a 6-8 (best estimate) year old mustang mare who came from the ISPMB neglect situation. As we've stated, when faced with 800+ horses that needed help, we made the[...]

May is Mother's Day month! Broodmares are one of the most needy horses - desired, loved, needed while they could have babies; often not trained, then when they are no longer needed or when breeders stop breeding they have no choices or options. Your support lets us help broodmares either retire or be trained for a new career and learn love for who[...]

Mason - Training Evaluation

i Mar 20, 2016 by Tiffany Ring

Mason's foot is feeling much better, and he's calmed down a ton, so before taking him back out to pasture we did his evaluation today. Mason is 12-13 years old and is reported to not have been ridden in 6-8 years. When he first came in he was anxious and pushy, and he still has some quirks but he's becoming a very nice horse. Today he took[...]
