Guy's Story

I wanted to share our story with you.

My children lost their father in 2016, the next few years were pretty rough so we decided to travel and explore. We found ourselves in Montana for a few months. My daughter wanted to work at a local horse arena and take some riding lessons. We did not own any horses at this time. I had ridden horses when I was younger but that was the extent of that. While we were there I absolutely fell in love with a horse in the back pasture. He was huge and loved the attention that I gave him. He had not been ridden or worked since he went blind about two years before that time.
