Horsepower to me means joy, acceptance and an incredible amount of love for every horse and person whether you are a volunteer or a rider that come through the barn doors. When I joined the Horsepower family in November I couldn’t have guessed the impact this place would have on me. As a volunteer I try my best to give back to Horsepower even a fraction of what it has given me. Seeing the joy that the horses bring to all of the riders and knowing that I had even the smallest part in making that happen whether its being a leader in a class or helping with barn chores is always the best part of my day.
Picking a favorite horse is nearly impossible, their willingness to give so much of themselves to the riders makes them all so special. But there are two in particular that are extra special. Dutch was the gentle giant, and absolutely stole my heart with his strength and openness. Dunbar on the other hand is all spunk and sassiness, he has taught me so much during my lessons with him, his eagerness to please and excitement for anything new makes riding him so much fun.
