"Just Don't Look Down", now known as Jessie, is a 2 year old OTTB (Off the Track Thoroughbred) mare, that was rescued by HART. She had suffered a slab fracture to her front leg while in training. Her X-rays did not reflect good news. But, after rest and more X-rays this sweet girl has fought her way into life. Believe me, her path as not been easy! While recuperating, she developed a very bad case of Colic and fought for her life with everything she had. Every once in a while a horse will come into your life that steals your heart and soul. This is exactly what Sweet Jessie has done. Her disposition and yearning to learn and please is amazing and she tries with all her heart. As of today, Jessie is doing light ground work with the hope that someday she will be rideable and will be an ambassador for HART, showing the world there is always hope. Please, help this amazing girl by donating and let her know there is a special place for her and horses like her.
Our goal is to provide education and awareness regarding the plight that some OTTBs face when injured or retired and can no longer race. While HART does intervene and rescue these horses from dire circumstances, we also work tirelessly to provide a better future for these majestic athletes. This is done by providing options and intervening before they end up neglected, abused, or worse, at a Kill Pen. How can you help?
