My love for horses began as a child but it wasn't until I was an adult that I was finally able to have a horse of my own. Due to injuries sustained in an auto accident in 1999 I could no longer ride. It was then I started researching mini's and the rest is history... I was hooked.
In 2003 my first 4 mini's came into my life and my adventures in the wonderful world of the miniature horse began.
In 2004 I became a member of the Blue Water Miniature Horse Club (BWMHC) where over the years I have made some amazing friends and many wonderful memories. During my time with the BWMHC I was very actively involved serving on several committees and enjoyed every minute of it. I was the newsletter editor for 8 years (2004-2011). I also served on the board of directors as treasurer for 4 years (2008-2011). From 2007-2010 the club's fun shows were held at my farm...these are some of my greatest memories, spending time with amazing friends both old and new and our wonderful little horses.
In 2009 I became involved with Chance's Miniature Horse Rescue (CMHR), first as a member then as a director at large. I became a foster home for this nationwide rescue in 2010 and since then I have fostered several horses. In May of 2010 I was asked to be treasurer for the rescue and I gladly accepted. As my passion for rescue grew I decided to make some changes and devote more of myself to making a difference in the lives of these little horses. So in December of 2011 I resigned my positions of treasurer and newsletter editor with the BWMHC to follow my heart which has led me on a amazing journey. I believe my time with both the BWMHC and CMHR along with the encouragement and support of my wonderful family and friends has prepared me to follow another dream....opening my own rescue!
On September 17, 2014, Saving Grace Miniature Horse Rescue went from a dream I never thought possible to a reality!
