Review for Arabian Rescue Mission Inc, Leitchfeild, KY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

After loosing my Arabian mare Sherilee in April 2012 I wanted to get another to replace her so I looked and looked all over and by chance ended up on ARM's website. I read all about their operation and saw that many horses had found great homes so I went to the horses that were available for adoption page. There were many but this one beautiful bay mare really caught my eye, but I continued to look at horses for sale everywhere. The problem was I kept being drawn to that beautiful bay mare on ARM's website. Finally after several days I went on the site and looked at that horse and swore she was looking at me. So, I called Terry at ARM and inquired about the mare. Her name is Julie MB and Terry said she was in Kentucky. I told her I was an older and tall rider and was looking for a horse that I would be able to ride safely and could carry me easily. Terry said Julie had been ridden and said she has a great personality,is a very healthy horse, and after talking we decided she would be a great match. I filled out an application and soon was approved. I was so excited. I found a shipper and in early May she arrived. It was raining and Julie had a long ride, but when she walked out of that trailer she was the most beautiful Arabian ever and I took the lead and brought her to a stall. She acted as if she had been mine and there forever. We have been best friends ever since and enjoy trail riding in the Mountains of NEPA. She loves being ridden and the tougher the terrain the better she likes it. She does everything I ask of her and forgives when I mess up. Terry matched us perfectly, she has a way of knowing what horse will match well with someone and is also honest when it comes to her decisions. I had also inquired about another bay mare and she told me honestly that it may not work out. I will forever be thankful to ARM for Julie and when ever it is possible I will send in a donation to help rescue another horse so it may be fortunate to find a forever home. Terry keeps in touch with me and I have met some wonderful people that have also adopted a horse from ARM. Thank you Terry and ARM!
