Trust You could not have been more aptly named. The 2008 California-bred mare has turned into a best friend and trustworthy companion after she put her racing days behind her. Trust You raced eight times, all at Penn National, winning once before she retired to MidAtlantic Horse Rescue.
“Trusty” has since been adopted by Dralynn M., though it may get a little confusing on who adopted whom. Dralynn fell in love with Trusty based on her listing photo and the feeling only intensified after meeting the mare in person. The pair have forged a great bond and have worked to heal each other. Despite a rocky start, Dralynn has persevered to teach Trusty how to jump and has taken everything in stride, wanting to have fun with her new companion. “This horse is my best friend and has helped me through so much in this little amount of time. She is everything I asked for and more and we won’t ever give up on each other.” The chestnut mare seems to have the same feeling for her new human, giving her patience and a listening ear.
MidAtlantic Horse Rescue works to adopt ex-racehorses “into good homes as pleasure and sport horses.” MAHR, located in Chesapeake City, MD, was started in 2002 and accredited by the TAA in 2013. More information on MAHR is available at:http://www.midatlantichorserescue.org/.
