Meet Sophie...๐Ÿ’•

She found herself in a kill-pen in desperate need of a Christmas miracle.

I think she came along to heal our hearts after the horse we met last weekend, so itโ€™s in his honor that we rescued her.

Welcome to Nalani Horse Rescue sweet girl. We canโ€™t wait to meet her after she completes her quarantine period. ๐Ÿด๐Ÿ’—

The New Holland Duo has given us hope and lifted our spirits. And with that, we have decided to name them Hope and Spirit. Who doesnโ€™t need a little of that this time of year? โœจ๐Ÿ’ซ

They are doing great in quarantine, and from a very quick vet check, we are estimating Hope to be about 20 years old and Spirit is around 10. We are so excited to welcome them to Nalani in a few weeks! โค๏ธ๐Ÿ’™

I often get asked where I find the horses I rescue. The answer is they always find me. Abercrombie found me on week two of recovering from a riding accident, unable to walk or even stand without help. I was emotionally wrecked. I thought I had paid my dues a few years earlier with the accident that....

Our Story

Nalani Horse Rescue (Nalani is Hawaiian for โ€œthe Heavensโ€) is a non-profit 501c3 organization dedicated to horse rescue and rehabilitation. Our mission is to provide horses in need of rescue with care, rehabilitation and training with the goal of finding them safe, forever homes. At Nalani, we are committed to giving these horses an opportunity to meet their potential in a loving, healthy and trusting environment. Nalani is located at Alanwood Farm in Broad Run, Virginia; a tranquil respite for horses who are in need of recovery.

Why Rescue? There are many factors that lead to a horse being dumped at an auction and headed to a horrific journey and terrifying death in a slaughter house. A horse costs at minimum $3K - 10K a year to feed and maintain. Often, people with the best of intentions fall on hard times and can no longer feed and give the proper care to a horse. In the racing and sport horse world, horses are often started far too young and sustain injuries early in life that limit their ability to perform, making them unwanted. As horses age and are no longer able to do a job (whether itโ€™s a lesson horse, cart horse, or show horse), they are often discarded. Sadly, the world is full of cruel people who abuse, neglect, and starve horses for seemingly no reason. Over 100,000 horses are shipped to slaughter every year.

Cherry Tapley began riding as an adult, but throughout her life she possessed a passion for horses and dreamed of one day owning a horse. As a new horse owner, she quickly became aware of the plight of many horses who were starved, abused, and discarded, often leading them to be shipped to slaughter. Determined to make a difference, she immersed herself in hands-on horse care and became an advocate for horses. As her passion and involvement with horses grew, she developed insight into rescue and rehabilitation, eventually co-founding Nalani Horse Rescue. As President and Co-Founder of Nalani Horse Rescue, Cherry runs the daily operations of the rescue and drives planning, coordination, and fundraising. She considers it the greatest privilege to work with horses and watch them transform as they receive the love and care they need.

Mark Rivest is an attorney who retired as a Colonel after a 27 year career in the U.S. Army Judge Advocate Generalโ€™s Corps. Mark and his wife, Susan, are originally from upstate New York, but adopted Northern Virginia as their home. They built a home in Aldie, VA and knew that they wanted to become involved in their adopted community and make a positive difference. Given the fact that Susan grew up around horses and developed a lifelong passion for equestrian activities and equine welfare, volunteering at Nalani was a natural choice. After sponsoring their first horse, Lincoln, and spending countless hours volunteering on various Nalani projects, they have become steadfast supporters and a consistent fixture at Nalani. Mark and Susan, and their daughters Caitlin and Kirsten, are inspired on a daily basis by Nalaniโ€™s ability to change the lives of horses and humans alike.

Yesterday, Lincoln and I had our third session in the round pen. In the previous two sessions, Lincoln was very worried about being lunged and wouldn't just walk quietly even on the line, he would go immediately into a trot or his gait instead. I'm happy to announce that yesterday after just a few tries, Lincoln learned to walk quietly on the line, and I couldn't be prouder! He has a typical long strided head shaking walk of a Tennessee walking horse :) We also had some distractions in the pen, like a curious kitty and people tossing hay bales that Lincoln handled like a pro. Afterwards Lincoln got the full grooming treatment and spent some time standing quietly in crossties. He picked up all his feet with ease and tolerated being touched everywhere. Isn't he a handsome boy?!
Riser is loving his new home. His mom is making sure he's spoiled.
