Midnight is an 18 year old therapy horse at Unbridled Horse Therapy, a Non-Profit located in Flower Mound, Texas. He provides therapy to several individuals of all ages with various abilities throughout the week. Midnight has been trained to stand still while riders in motorized wheel chairs or walkers tack him up and mount him. He has a sturdy, stable walk for riders that are working on core strength and balance. He has been trained to have toys thrown around him and not be frightened. He has also become the only horse at Unbridled that provides a form of ‘vaulting’ lessons which allow riders to gain confidence, balance and trust by practicing various moves such as standing on his back, riding on their knees, as well as other fun exercises. Along with providing therapy sessions, Midnight has also become quite the greeter to guests around the property. You might be sitting up on the porch watching the riders go by and Midnight may come up looking for treats or just a friendly pat. He provides smiles, loves to be hugged and enjoys a nice carrot or apple, if you’re willing to share. Midnight has become a vital part of Unbridled Horse Therapy and we need your help to save him!
On Sunday, December 3rd Midnight stepped on a nail that punctured the frog of his left back hoof and compromised his coffin bone. Unfortunately infection set in on the bone within 24 hours and he was taken to the vet for emergency care. With the infection setting in the vets got right to work on his hoof and began an intense antibiotic treatment. Midnight continues to be cared for by the vet team on a daily bases and with that care Unbridled has accrued a serious amount of vet bills. We need your help to be able to afford to continue giving Midnight the care he needs with the hope the antibiotic treatment and vet care will help save Midnight, allowing him to come home and continue changing the lives of his riders.
