Shiloh’s Wish was one of a herd of horses in Montgomery left to starve when he was rescued by a couple of our volunteers a number of years ago. They nursed him back to health over a six month period, and his training on the ground and under saddle began during that time. He then spent about five years being an equine therapy horse for children to learn confidence, communication and trust on. His name came about as a cross between a native American name and their Christian beliefs. He came to Henry’s Home with those volunteers to serve our veterans and first responders and their families in 2019, at the age of about 12.
His best friend is Mr. Leo, although he has been making friends with others in the herd since his arrival. He is especially appreciated as a mount out on our trail rides as he is steady and dependable, but with a bit of spirit. He loves to jump over anything that comes up, including small puddles. 😉 He has aspirations of competing in hunting/jumping competitions some day.
Mr. Shiloh just loves to participate in our equine yoga classes.
