“I love Apple so much! He is a great horse and a big part of the family. He really is a great animal. I cannot tell you how thrilled I am to have had the chance to work with Turning for Home and adopt this horse!

Apple’s biggest accomplishment to me is how good he is with my niece and nephew. Racehorses have such a bad reputation for the wrong reasons. My niece has been “helping” me with him since he was first adopted at 2 and she was only 4 years old! She (9 years old now) really started taking riding lessons a year ago and was able to ride him within 3 months of “basic riding lessons”. It is amazing how he “just knows” when he is with the kids and his personality adapts.

I am hoping to get him to some shows next year. I will send some photos later of me and Apple and Apple with my niece.

Thank you and all the Turning for Home connections for everything you do! These horses deserve a second chance and each success story is proof that they flourish in their new homes!” -Jillian J.
