Active Heroes is now an official foster home to horses in need, partnering up with the American Saddlebred Legacy Foundation. The American Saddlebred Legacy Foundation is “a positive, proactive resource for breeders, owners and trainers to help network Saddlebreds that don’t fit traditional show barn training programs”.
Basically the American Saddlebred Legacy Foundation works to save horses from auctions and help find them homes where they will be loved and nurtured regardless of their skill-set. Check out their Facebook page.
The Active Heroes Retreat Center was able to facilitate 3 of these beautiful horses and will keep them under our care until they find more permanent homes.
1: The first horse is 27 years old and goes by the name Chloe. Chloe needed a forever home that would spoil her rotten with the love, food, and treats she needs in her last few years on this earth.
2: The second horse is 12 years old and goes by the name Jon Douglas. Jon Douglas lost one of his eyes a number of years ago and now suffers from impaired vision out of his one remaining eye. Though he is a little skittish, we have been really blown away with how well Jon does and continues to do, despite his disability. We hope that Jon can be an inspiration to others as he has overcome his disability and gone on to lead a seemingly happy life.
3: Last but not least our third horse is only 3 years old and goes by the name Henry. Henry is a quite the rambunctious horse and is definitely the wild child of the group, he’s never even been ridden or driven. Henry has a lot of potential to make his next owner happy.
Active Heroes is thrilled to have 3 beautiful horses at the Retreat Center as animal therapy has been a proven way of helping relieve the symptoms of PTSD and depression.
Active Heroes wants to encourage anyone who is interested to come out and spend some time with these wonderful animals. These horses need the love and attention of people to help make them more social. Come out and spend some quality time with these horses and benefit from the amazing presence they have.
