Meet Even Odds!
We are excited to announce that our 5th rescue horse, Even Odds has joined us! Through the efforts of Beth Walker and Kris Young, Even was pulled from a kill pen in Pennsylvania. And with the help of Rebecca Bolton, his transport to NC was covered and he arrived at HKSR&R on October 19. Even is a 6 year old, 16hh, registered Off the Track Thoroughbred gelding who last raced on 8/13/2011. Since his arrival, Even has adjusted very well to life at HKSR&R. He has a very sweet, even tempered nature and has good ground manners. Even's retraining began with lunging and groundwork, which he seems to already have experience with, and we are now moving forward with his under saddle retraining. We believe that this sweet, smart boy will be ready for his forever home in no time!
Cassie Finds Forever Home
We are so pleased to announce that our sweet Cassie has been adopted! On September 21, she made the journey to her new home in Knoxville, TN with the Spencer Family. Kamuran Spencer, her primary rider, will make a wonderful partner to Cassie as they progress in the Hunter Jumper world together. The Spencers tell us that she has already made herself at home and is getting along wonderfully with their gelding, Cody. Cassie has truly found a wonderful forever home with Kamuran and her family and we look forward to hearing how they grow together as a team!

Education Building Update
Throughout the year, our Education Building has received quite the facelift! Thanks to generous donors, the building is filled with furniture and décor, including a desk, tables & chairs, filing cabinets, bookshelves, carpet, dry erase boards, as well as relevant educational equine materials such as books, bits and saddles. The Education Building is now ready to be a functional space for Educational Events! As you can see from the picture, the building is freshly painted and adorned with an eye-catching HKSR&R sign. Unfortunately, since this picture was taken, our beautiful sign was damaged in a storm and we are now in need of a replacement. Our wish list is very close to being fulfilled with the exception of a replacement sign, electrical and lighting supplies, outdoor furniture, and landscaping. Our wish list is below - if you would like to donate any of these items, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Replacement Exterior Sign
