Lady was purchased at auction in March 2022.  We were told she was a camp horse and did mostly trail rides. She is an older red dun mare.



Mocha was purchased at auction in March 2022.  She has an interesting coloration – a chocolate colored line-backed dun.  We don’t know much history about her but she seems to have more training than Chip.


Chip was purchased at auction March 2022.  He was a little thin so we are working on fattening him up.  We don’t know any history on him other than he was a trail horse at one time.

The acquisition of Jingle was a joint effort – Capital City Clauses donated $2500 towards her purchase and the Sellers donated the balance of her price.  She was named Jingle (as in Jingle Bells) to keep the Christmas name theme that Capital City Clauses uses when naming their events.

Bobo was donated to HfH in 2019.  He is a spotted draft cross rescue and the biggest sweet heart around who loves to be groomed.  Bobo does have an issue with his airway and will tire easy when ridden for long periods.  If you would like to sponsor this big guy please go to our donate button and notate it when you make your donation.

Cooper was a rescue in reverse!  This miniature horse was extremely obese when he came to us in the summer of 2016.  In the first picture below you can see the wrinkles in his neck slightly turned – he was so fat he could not reach his side to get a fly. Cooper was also a cryptorchid stallion when he came to Horses for Hope. The surgery for gelding a cryptorchid stallion is $1,000 but the NCSU Veterinary School took him on as a teaching project for their students and he was successfully gelded at no cost to us. Thank you NSCU Vet School!

He is handsome now!
