As a child, I loved animals. There wasn't a time in my life where I didn't have a pet of some sort. I discovered my love for horses when I was in elementary school visiting my grandparents and their ponies. I'll always remember "Cinder" and "Silver". As much as my parents didn't want me near the ponies (not sure if it was for fear of me getting hurt, or the fear of me wanting one), whenever I visited my grandparents, you'd find me nowhere else but in the pony lot. Eventually, I ended up with "Silver" as my very own. My parents got me my first horse for my 16th birthday, named "Wendy". After that, I had horses in my life all the time. My first job while I was in high school was working on a Thoroughbred Farm in Climax NY.
In 2010, I was introduced to the horror of horses being shipped to Canada and Mexico to be slaughtered for human consumption. I needed to get involved in any way that I could, which is the reason we founded High Hill Haven - Horse Rescue, Inc.
