Skipper’s Profile:Guardian Angel
With deep sadness we announce that our beloved Skipper is now our Guardian Angel. Skipper was a 17 year old quarter horse whose playful and mischievous personality won the hearts of many. He was known for pushing the boundaries to help heal the wounded and wouldn’t let anyone get away with anything. Skipper helped many veterans and first responders find their way to healing. He gave all his heart to each of his veterans and first responders repeatedly. He now waits in heaven’s green pastures to carry those who are wounded through the gates of peace. Thank you Skipper for making this world a better place for all of us; thank you for being a part of our family! We will miss you dearly and love you forever!

Marvin has become a favorite for a lot of our veterans and first responders. Marvin looks forward to his classes and his peppermints after a good days work.
Sam was born May 24, 1997, in Portsville, Iowa. He lived the first 14 years of his sheltered life playing in knee high fields with his mom, Sissel, and half-siblings. Sam is a registered Norwegian Fjord and displays all of the desirable characteristics and traits of the Fjord breed. He stands 14 hh and weighs approximately 950 lbs. Fjords are hearty, stout and extremely easy to own and train. They look for human companionship and adapt to every discipline and training. Although they rarely are bigger than a large pony, they are a draft breed and have been used for centuries to work by pulling wagons, plows and carriages. They were the battle steed for the Vikings and are believed to be the closest relative to prehistoric Pryzwalski horses. Sam is naturally calm, quiet and willing to work. He’s still adapting to our Arizona heat so HRF’s schedule suits him just fine! Sam loves the trails and is being trained to drive the new, custom carriage that will safely accommodate wheelchairs in the driving position. Sam is up for the challenge and is proud to serve!
