Bring Cash to HFH!
Many of you know that over the past 6 years, we’ve been teaching riding and doing some theraputic horse work at Habitat for Hope. To this point, all the horses that we’ve previously used at HFH have been donated to us. This has worked out in varying levels of success – we’ve had some real wins, and then had some horses that just simply never worked out. Kelly Carter has helped us with our program for the past several years, and has donated two of our sweetest horses – Katie and Missy. I brag on Kelly a lot, but I’ve honestly never seen a girl turn out studs (stallions), fillies and geldings like Kelly does. She breaks and trains horses, and when they are finished, they are soft, supple and kind – perfect for our type of program. Sadly, Katie had to be put down last year, but not before making her impact on many children. Missy remains in our program, and is spunky and sweet – loved by many (the blond horse!). Right now, due to some special circumstances with one of our donated horses, we are in need of another lesson horse. We’ve got several HFH siblings and 4 local kids ready to start lessons on Thursday. Enter sweet Cash…
A few months ago, Kelly took in a buckskin AQHA (quarter horse) named Cash. She tuned him up and finished him for his owner, who then decided to sell him. Kelly recognized right away that he could be a fit for HFH. This gelding has a kind and sweet disposition, is an easy keeper, and is willing to work. Never before have we asked for donations specific to our program, but we have the opportunity to bring in a very special horse for the kids to use. Cash’s owner is willing to sell him for $1200 – $500 less than she had planned to get for him. Will you help us bring Cash to HFH? If he joins our program, we will ultimately have 3 great horses that can be ridden by kids and adults alike, and are easy keepers. This should greatly reduce our workload and increase the effectiveness of a very special component of Habitat for Hope! If you can help, PLEASE follow this link for details.
We thank you in advance!
