I had the opportunity to meet with Melissa at Horses Healing Hearts recently and saw Spirit again. Spirit/Lichtenstein (gelding) is almost 9 years old and is the Great Great Grandson of Secretariat. If anyone has seen that movie knows exactly what I'm talking about. Tears...for being so good. He was found emaciated in a pasture in Castro Valley on December 31st, 2011.
That's when Horses Healing Hearts took him in. He has such a charming personality. After years of love and care, Spirit is ready for his forever home. He would do best with an experienced rider. He has some limitations and can be walked and trotted. He can canter, however he needs to build up muscle in the hind leg. He can be ridden English or Western. He is 16.2 hands and an off-the-track Thoroughbred. For more information on the rescue horse Spirit please visit Horses Healing Hearts. There are so many ways you can help, please consider this amazing 501(c)3 non profit. <3
