Baby Woodrow Finally Arrived!

MVHR is thrilled to announce the arrival of little colt Woodrow, born in the wee hours of April 24!

Breezie

Breezie

Breezie came to MVHR back in 2012 when her previous owner just didn’t want her anymore, and refused to buy more hay for her.  Sensitive and responsive, this special mare seems to have taken to heart tough treatment in her past, and at times struggles with overcoming her fears and worries, and so has had a hard time finding a new person of her own.  Well broke and lovely to ride she will be...

With the support of a number of generous donors who helped sponsor the transportation, MVHR was able to offer space to 4 of the mustangs from Lantry, South Dakota.  After quite a journey through snow storms and icy roads to get here, the four beautiful mares arrived December 9, 2016.  Unhandled, they will be quite a project to even get our hands on, let alone halters!  Stay...

Union

Union

This handsome Off The Track Thoroughbred came to MVHR in December of 2016 from a local owner.  He has been passed around quite a bit in his life – at least 6 owners in 12 years!  He has a huge personality, and would love a true person of his own to keep.  Union does have a unique hind end gait irregularity which makes him best suited to light, flat riding….and LOTS of LOVE! ADOPTED!!!  Union's...
