Harmony Equine Center Celebrates Impressive Milestone

In just five short years, the Dumb Friends League Harmony Equine Center in Franktown has reached an impressive milestone. On Friday, July 7, 2017 the 1,000th horse to complete Harmony’s training program was adopted.

Taya, the now famous 1,000th horse, was living at a rescue in Colorado that was being investigated for cruelty and neglect. She was one of four horses surrendered to investigators and brought to the Harmony Equine Center in April of this year.

The pretty and feisty filly went through our gentle training program that helps horses develop new skills, overcome fears and learn to trust. Taya quickly learned the ropes and was on her way to becoming a great riding horse.

Enter the Dye family. They came to the Harmony Equine Center looking for a “project horse” who needed a confident rider with plenty of patience. They decided that Taya was the right horse for their family. Their daughter Jordan will be working with Taya to help her gain miles and experience so the two can enjoy a successful life together.

And here is a fun fact about Taya: Guests who visited the Harmony Equine Center Open House in June may recognize her, since she was one of the horses started during the “Training the Harmony Way” demonstration. So even before becoming the 1,000th horse to complete the program, she was already a little bit famous!

Transforming the lives of horses in our care through rehabilitation, training and adoption is our ongoing goal. Taya is the perfect example of how we’ve been able to achieve that goal and change the lives of many deserving horses in the past five years.

If you’re thinking about getting a horse, consider adopting from the Harmony Equine Center. We have dozens of horses available for adoption. Whether you’re looking for a trail horse, pasture pet or family companion, we can help you find a horse that’s just right for you.
