Hope's story began when she was only a day old. She was kicked in the knee by another mare and broke her leg at the growth plate. At age one, she was rescued by Spirit Reins and offered a second chance at life. Her life has been far from easy. She's endured countless surgeries and her front legs are crippled, but she's never given up. Many of the children that visit Hope identify with her “brokenness”, strength and courage and are able to see firsthand the power of second chances.
