RUSTY, the Horse who never stops Giving...
Hadiat Min Alssahra' aka “Rusty” came to us in 1980 at age 9 - a high energy, half Arabian, half Quarter Horse Blue Roan Gelding with the moves, looks and style of an Arab. In his youth, Rusty traveled the U.S. with Ebony Horsewomen, appearing in the Tournament of Roses Parade (Pasadena, CA), The Martin Luther King Parade (Atlanta, GA), and the P.T Barnum Parade - just to name a few.
Rusty has served us dutifully for years, providing hundreds of riding lessons to our children. Even after developing a benign throat tumor at age 17, Rusty didn't slow down -- He just kept GIVING!
In 2015, Rusty retired at age 35. Today, you can find him happily roaming EHI’s grounds greeting visitors and eating like a horse!
If you are like us at the Ebony Horsewomen Equestrian and Agricultural Center, you enjoy helping improve your community through giving, healing, education, helping the environment, and offering a safe space for youth and animals to thrive.
We encourage you to get involved with the work Ebony Horsewomen is doing and learn more about how you can make a difference. We could not do the work without your continuous support.
