Kawartha Horse Adoption – Freedom Valley Horses

I am Christine Markle-Welch, my husband is Howie Welch, we started our rescue in May 08 as a result of watching so many nice horses end up going for meat. To date we have saved 65 horses from that terrible end and are always ready to help more. We are a non profit organization although we are not yet registered, we believe that profiting from our horses situation would be wrong. Our goal is to save and find homes for as many horses as we possibly can and work on training those who need it so that they won’t end up in that position again. I am blessed by my role in each of their lives and not a day goes by that I am not grateful for the horses that we have here, and my already adopted sweethearts and their new loving families. Our own personal pets are, Follie, my Arab/Standardbred cross mare, Mumford, our baby mule (mumfy for short), and our very large & very friendly goat Jacob.

I am thrilled to announce the addition of Tanya Smith, trainer extraordinaire, to our team (inthesaddle@live.com)!!!! Tanya has a natural, non brutal & kind way of training and totally bombproofing a horse. She specializes in gaited horses, many trainers are not familiar with the requirements of training a gaitied horse and can screw it up, making the training to gait even more difficult. Upon leaving Tanyas care your horse will be pretty much bombproof, road and trail safe, any other issues can also be addressed. ‘We are so happy to have Tanya on board, we have had other trainers, but Tanya is very special! and does a fabulous job. Thanks Tanya!! Yay!!! Our adoption fees go towards saving the “next one(s)”(it is a snowball effect), please, if you or someone you know may be interested in one of our babies please don’t hesitate to contact us. It is hard to have to let one go for meat just because we don’t have the funds!
