This is Leon, our spirit horse. When Leon came to Horse Haven Uk 4 years ago at almost 3 years of age he was very timid and had never been handled.
I don’t know what makes him so different to the other herd members but there is definitely something special about him.
I did read that the Native Americans had certain horses that were known as “spirit horses” and they were very highly prized.
From my research Leon certainly fits the description so we think of him as our “spirit horse”.
He has an incredibly sensitive nature and is an amazing asset to our Equine Assisted Learning programmes
