My name is Lisa and I am from Michigan. My story is about my best friend Shy-Ann. Shy-Ann is my whole life. See it all started back in 1999. I saw Shy-Ann in a field, and it makes me sick to see how her previous owners treated her. U can’t even imagine what they put my horse through. I told my mom about her, so my mom bought her for me. I also saved Shy-Ann from the slaughterhouse, because in 3 days that is where she would have ended up. To see Shy-Ann today, you can’t tell she was abused so BADLY before I got her. Shy-Ann is pure Arabian, red chestnut, flaxen mane and tail, white blaze, 3 white pasterns, 14.2 hh and turned 4 years old this year.

Shy-Ann is now 4 years old. I got her when she was 11 months old. Shy-Ann and I are best friends. I did all the training on her, except for starting her under saddle. I ride her western and she is the best horse ever. Shy-Ann likes everybody, but she stays close by me, she LOVES me. Shy lets other people ride and pet her but I can tell when they ride her she wants me to be up there on her instead. I don’t let other people ride her that much, I am VERY PROTECTIVE of her, she is my baby.

Shy-Ann is SO SWEET, she lays her head on my shoulder and licks my hand, it is so CUTE. We do everything together. I LOVE horseback riding. Shy-Ann LOVES to be rode. I am so glad I found Shy-Ann, she is the light shining into my life. When I am sad, she is always there for me, she listens and understands. Once you find that special horse, which for me Shy-Ann is that special one, never give them up. I made promises to Shy-Ann that I will always take care of her and no one will ever hurt her again, and with me is her permanent home. Shy-Ann you are my best friend and my "guardian angel" and with you my life is complete, I LOVE you Shy-Ann.
