I was introduced to horses at 5 years old when my horse crazy mother got our first riding horse, Blue, a Quarter Horse, Thoroughbred, Appaloosa cross.
I spent all of my adolescence and several years into my adulthood breaking, riding and enjoying horses. Fast forward to 2018, a place called Horses of Hope Oregon came into my life and I became a volunteer here. Happy memories of my youth came flooding back to me and I was greeted by a husky nicker from a beautiful gray Percheron mare named Dallie.
She quickly became my heart horse and Horses of Hope Oregon became what I fondly call "my Disneyland". I have advanced from volunteer to facilities manager and there is no place I would rather be than with my human and equine friends here at Horses of Hope Oregon.
