Bacardi, better known as Boo, is a registered paint horse. Boo has been with Nature’s Edge from the beginning. He started his career as a show horse with Becky, our director. Once Nature’s Edge was opened, Boo was given the opportunity to expand his career and became a therapy horse, helping with Hippotherapy and Animal-Assisted therapy. While Boo loved his career as a show horse and still competed for a while, he excelled as a therapy horse. All the kids loved riding the “big white horse”.
Boo is now enjoying retirement. He does still help with Animal-Assisted therapy by going on walks, standing patiently to be used as a painting canvas, bathing, or his favorite, being groomed. His absolute favorite activity is being a horse and ruling his herd.
