Cinnabar's Story

December 2, 2021

"Cinnabar came into my life in 2012 when I started spending time at the New Mexico Horse Rescue at Walkin N Circles Ranch - WNCR. She was living there, looking for a forever home. I was there searching for horses to help me start my therapeutic riding business. I was not looking for a tall, beautiful OTTB. I was looking for a calm, quiet Quarter Horse or sweet Paint, who would be working with kids and adults with disabilities.

One day I went into the paddock at the rescue to halter a different horse, but Cinnabar was having none of that. She followed me around the paddock and then she followed me down the fence line anytime I walked by. She was stunning; long legs, gorgeous bay coat and the softest eye, pleading with me to take her home. Of course, I had to say yes! That was nine years ago.

Cinnabar had multiple challenges that we needed to conquer. Like ulcers, back pain, thin soles, kissing spine, and arthritis. So, we took our time, getting her chiropractic adjustments, ulcer meds, and doing workouts to help build her topline. It has not been an easy road, but she was well worth it!

Over the years, Cinnabar has helped many of my clients at Enchanted Equine Adventures, LLC overcome anxiety and learn about the life of a racehorse after the track. She loves kids and to have her butt scratched! Everyone who meets her, falls in love with her. Never judge a book by its cover, because they might just surprise you!”
