Months and months of progressing with ground work, under full tack,


utilizing the combined natural horsemanship methods of Parelli, Anderson, and Adri. For Cheyenne, if he gets stuck, he can become defensive. It has been a learning experience for Adri to find out when she needs to let him recompose himself or when she can push him a little past where he sticks. When pushed he gets defensive and looks to see what you are going to do to him. He is looking to see if you strike out at him, or hurt him in some way. It is like he is expecting it to happen and surprised when it does not. When Adri is the same person as al- ways and treats him the way that she always has, he feels safe and then does what he is asked.


We have had, ‘experts’ tell us that we need to


put this dangerous horse down. They think that a rescue should not have a dangerous horse like that and someone will get hurt. While I do agree that some rescues maybe should not have a horse like this due to inexperienced volun- teers, and that there is a potential risk if he is handled wrong, CCHR’s highly trained volun- teers are knowledgeable and trustworthy I also would not suggest that just anyone could or should work with a horse like Cheyenne.


California Coastal Horse Rescue has been in this business for over 12 years. We have worked with a lot of horses like Cheyenne that others have given up on and we know what we are doing.


I asked Adri to add how she feels about Cheyenne, our dangerous horse,


and what working with him has meant to her and this is what she had to say, “There is nothing more beautiful than any spirit or soul that can come back from complete adversity and really triumph. Cheyenne is one such beautiful spirit and I have been so lucky to be able to join him on this part of his journey.
