Although Tony was healing physically at the shelter, mentally and emotionally he still needed a lot of help. So he was brought to Horse Haven at Best Friends. With the gentle guidance and experience of trainers and caregivers used to helping horses who’ve survived tough situations, Tony was in capable and caring hands.

Parelli is the preferred horse training method at Best Friends, and it’s worked wonders with frightened horses like Tony.
