Hi from Sudan, my name is Twylight.......

Hi my name is Twylight. I was badly abused and mistreated befor I came to Miracles Sudan riding center.
I had been brought by a young boy who thought he knew how to ride. When he brought me I was very young and had never been riden befor. Because he tried to ride me so young it damaged my back, and now my back has a permanent dip in it.
I didn't like being ridden because I was frightened,confused and my back hurt. So I tried to through the boy of and he would beet me. I became so agressive, that he was too frightened to ride me. His friends tried to ride me and I would kick them and bite them. I had become, through no fault of my own, a very dangerous horse.
Then one day a very kind looking man (JAs husband Yassin) came to see me, I still wasn't sure I trusted him, and thank God, at least I didn't kick him . He gave my then owner some money and
thats how I came to Miracles Sudan riding center.
After a lot of tender love and slow gently training, I have come to see humans in a different light. I am not afriad anymore, infact I actually welcome the companionship of a gently rider on my back. I also enjoy working with the disabled children of Sudan that attend the hippotherapy program at the farm.
I feel they had a bad start in life just like I did, and if riding on me helps them even in some small way, it makes my life worth living.

Hi I am Nejwa.....

Hi my name is Nejwa. I wasn't rescued from neglect or abuse like most of the horses at Miracles Sudan riding center. I was given as a gift, by a very kind lady who knew how much I would enjoy living on the farm and helping the disabled children of Sudan by working in the hippotherapy program that is run by our human JA.
I also work in the riding school, helping with teaching the young children how to ride. The children love riding me, and I love eating the carrots after the lesson.
I also enjoy jumping so I work with adult riders too.
You could say that I am very versitile, and I feel I am a valuable (horse) member of Miracles Sudan riding center.

Hi, my name is Angel, I didn't always live at Miracles Sudan riding center, I started my life as a race horse at the Khartoum equestrian club , but I wasn't very good at it. Oh, I was a good runner alright. I just didn't enjoy it; I didn't have the right attitude. I'm not the ambitious type, I was quite happy running with the crowd….let me put it another way....not all dogs are kept for the same purpose....some are good for hunting, others are good at guarding and yet others are just kept as family pets, normally because they're a faithful companion and good with kids. Well if I was a dog (which thank god I'm not) I would fit in the last category perfectly.I am a very special horse (my human JA tells everybody so). My specialty is working with disabled children, in my humans Hippo therapy program.She's the one giving me a kiss…the things I have to put up with sometimes!!!
