Meet Ash, weanling Mustang from Teddy Roosevelt National Park

i Oct 07, 2016 by Tiffany Ring

Gentle Spirit Horses Rescue & Sanctuary welcomes Ash, weanling Mustang colt from Teddy Roosevelt National Park, into our program. Known as Arizona in the park, Ash has come to GSH due to a problem in his hind end that currently makes him unsound with an uncertain future. In the first two weeks we focused on rapid gentling and he has now been[...]

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[...]

Sorry for the lack of horse photos lately - Nina needs a new phone as it doesn't take great pictures and Tiffany is up there in the dark. Tiffany (who is sick) whined last night that we haven't posted anything but event and business type posts all week and Nina responded by sending her pictures today. We work together well that way. Though the[...]

An Impactiful Trip to the Lower Brule Reservation; Introducing Ina, Mato, Gleska, Tahni and Chikala

i Nov 08, 2015 by Tiffany Ring

Today, we made a trip to the Lower Brule Reservation near Chamberlain, SD, after being contacted by a vet about some young horses who were in need of help quickly. A kind young man had come into her clinic this past week and asked for help rehoming his young horses, as he was taking a job in Texas and leaving in a week. With little information, we[...]

With heavy hearts we regret to announce that 30 year old Society Golden Queen, one half of our famous elderly couple Sam & Queenie, was laid to rest at 12:30 this afternoon. About six weeks ago she suffered a serious choke, which we were able to clear and get through barely. She has not been quite right since, lost weight, has slowed down eating,[...]

Headaches in Horses

i Aug 08, 2015 by Tiffany Ring

GREAT article. Tommy, fly mask burier, gets headaches. Perhaps something to do with the compression in his neck (Wobbler Syndrome) but he gets tight in the poll. Tommy is a kind, sweet horse but then out of the blue he'll start pinning his ears as you walk by and get what can only be called as grumpy. He doesn't bite, lunge, or show any other[...]
