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

Rating: 5 stars  

My husband and I went in search of a safe, reliable trail horse for our then 7yo daughter after her other horse was injured and retired. We had taken in a mare that we had to rehome due to undisclosed back issues that caused her to buck our daughter off after a few miles. Both our daughters are avid trail riders and are now entering their 3rd year of endurance riding. We sent in an application to ARM and had expressed interest in a mare that turned out to have adoption pending. After a long talk on the phone with Terry discussing our needs and expectations for the new horse and the personalities, experience and abilities of the horses available we decided a 6yo mare named Belle might fit the bill. Terry arranged for Belle to be moved to a foster home closer to our home so we would be able to see her without so much travel to the ARM Farm. Belle showed to be exactly as Terry said she was and although not love at first site we definitely saw her potential. Belle was smooth gaited, sound minded and friendly. We went ahead with the adoption and our daughter renamed her Fiona. Six months later our oldest daughter rode Fiona in an endurance ride, as well as two others that year. Fiona proved to be everything we wanted and so much more! She has taken wonderful care of our daughters on all their adventures, we could not be happier with her! Fiona completed 155 Limited Distance endurance miles in 2013 with my youngest daughter and they have been awarded the AERC Regional JR LD Distance Award!!

Our experience with adopting from ARM was wonderful and we could not be happier with the outcome. Fiona is exactly what we wanted and more and she will spend the rest of her life with us. Words do not express how blessed with are to have Fiona with us and how grateful we are to Terry for pointing us in her direction! We have recommended adopting from ARM to others and will continue to do so. Would not hesitate to adopt from ARM again!
