Blue Star has several working horses who came to us when very young, when their families couldn’t keep them anymore. It was the families’ hope that the horses could be raised and trained by us and go on to become our working horse ambassadors, who in their own way, could bring attention and support to our important mission for the horses that need us most. We thought that was a great idea, and as a result, we now have four mature, well-trained working horses who are able to help us in the community in any way they are needed.
These horses are smart, stunning, and well behaved. They love a crowd and the people in them! They are BSE’s greatest asset and most important teachers and helpers in our community outreach. They work with us on jobs; in parades, wagon rides, horse shows, weddings, land clearing, logging and plowing. The money they earn goes back to help the yearlings, retired and disabled herds on the farm.
Working horses taking care of working horses — it is only natural.
