Congratulations on the canter!  It is always a win when you get it!

The weather over the last week has been less than spectacular so Willow had a full week off. I'm excited to say, the week off resulted in the best session thus far!! Oh, and she remembered the loping lesson and was eager to do it without getting bunched up. My tail bone is very sensitive yet but thankfully riding is one thing that doesn't hurt odd enough. Tonight I let her graze before leaving the field for a job well done.

I think horses enjoy time off just like we do!  Glad she came back into work so nicely and remembered her lessons.

We've been catching up on rides since having 2 weeks of horrible weather and this girl is coming around!!

Willow went on her first little trail ride last night. Was a little concerned about what might jump out behind her but overall not too bad. Loose rein the whole time. We had partridge fly out from next to us 4 different times and she barely batted an eye. Walked over the bridge going over the river and didn't care either. Ill be bringing her back this weekend and I really hope someone will give her a chance.

Update: 10-21-2018

Willow is now back from training and Anna did an excellent job with her, mellow, leads, loads, ties, stand for the farrier, not to mention rides, walk, trot, canter very well. We can now make Willow available for adoption and someone with a little experience is going to get a really nice, laid back, healthy horse with some very good training.


As it says above, Willow is back at MHWF and now the journey to find her person begins!  Anna did such a fabulous job with her and Anna was also kind enough to not only deliver Willow back to us, but also stuck around and rode Semper and also rode Willow.  We got some video of both and I will get to posting Semper's video soon.  

Willow is coming along sooooooo nicely, and she is one of the sweetest horses you could ever want to meet.  Here is a video of Willow being ridden, her first time in our indoor arena.  

This was just roughly 30 days training. In a new environment, what a rock star!
Willow did awesome in the arena!  Good job, Anna!

Anyone out there interested in this girl? She has an excellent start and winter is the perfect time to build a relationship with her! I honestly miss riding her and having her around!

I've been keeping an eye on Willow & Belle these last few months. Not sure which one I like better. I can only have one horse, 1.60acre property. If either are okay with being by themselves and with our Labrador mix dog & love & attention everyday, please let me know. I'll be sending you my application & pictures as soon as possible. Thank you! Great job with all your horses! Andrea ❤
Hello Andre, 

I am sorry to tell you that MHWF does not allow horses to be kept alone. Horses are herd animals and need the companionship of other horses or donkeys.

Very interested in this girl. We are located in Sparta on a 15 acre farm currently with about 3 acres of pasture already set and are still expanding. We have an OTTB mare and OTTB gelding and are interested in adding another horse.
How to Adopt a Horse from MHWF

The process of adopting a horse from MHWF is simple, print out the application. Send that in along with a $5.00 processing fee and photos of your farm. Once it is received we will get in touch with you via telephone and will answer any questions you might have, whether they be about our program and policies or a particular horse in our program. 

If after that phone call both parties feel like one or more of the horses is a possible match, we will set up an appointment for you to meet the horses. If the horse is a match, you may choose to adopt it and take it home after a little paperwork.

1. You must have an application on file to inquire about adoption horses, no exceptions. 

2. You must call during our posted hours and not on off hours.

3. You must set an appointment via telephone with us before planning on coming to the MHWF farm. Calling or emailing to let us know you are coming is not setting an appointment and will not be honored.
4. You must be at least 18 years old to inquire about adoption horses or to file an application.

We try our best to make adoption as easy and fun as we can make it. It is for that reason that we have set these policies. Everyone at MHWF has a regular daytime job and we must make good use of our limited time as this is a volunteer job and the people who take their time off to spend with the horses and potential adopters do it because they love it and believe in it.
