Foster Horses

from the New Hampshire SPCA

With a stong belief of "give more than you take", trainer, Chelsea Miller, fosters horses for the New Hampshire SPCA and volunteers her time and training to give these equines a second chance and to increase their potential for placement into a "forever home".



FRESCA was one of the "soda pop ponies"( as they were fondly nicknamed after their rescue) that was seized in 2014. They were used for pony rides at fairs, then tied and left in an old run down barn when they were not needed. A neighbors horse got loose and police were searching for it and heard noises coming from the old barn and found the ponies... She was in training at Garland for a few months, to see what she knew and/or get her stared.  She was brought back to the SPCA, then out to another foster situation for a trial.  Finaly, in January of 2016, Fresca was adopted and now has her forever home!


Mireda (renamed "Squish" after adoption)



Sadeeka was a surrender to the NHSPCA. Her owners could no longer offer her the care and time she needed.  She ca,e to Garland Stables to get some tuning up with ground work, and to be started under saddle. This beautiful girl was adopted and is happy in her forever home.


Spirit (renamed "Fabio" after adoption)

Spirit was a surrender, with 3 other Mustangs.  He was adopted as a yearling from Black Hills Wild Horse Sanctuary.  His owner unfortunately, could no longer afford him, as well as the other three, and surrendered the horses to the NHSPCA.  Spirit was still fairly wild when he arrived at Garland Stables, but after a few months of training with Chelsea, he became a very trusting horse, and started under saddle, and best of all, adopted! 


Cheyenne (renamed "Encore" after adoption)

Cheyenne was a surrender with 3 other Mustangs from the same owner as Spirit.  He was also adopted from Black Hills Wild Horse Sanctuary.  Cheyanne came to Garland Stables for training after Spirit was adopted.  Cheyenne was also "wild", much like Spirit, but soon settled down and just wanted to please.  Faith Bottoni, from Wisconsin, fell in love with his photo, and decided to adopt him.  He stayed in training with Chelsea for another month to get him started under saddle. He made the long trip to Wisconsin safely and is now in his loving, forever home.



Mystic was a surrender to the NHSPCA, with another chestnut mare.  She had a very loving owner that obviously took very good care of them, but became ill and could no longer care for them. She is a 12 year old paint mare came to Garland Stables for training. She is a very sweet mare, and has been under saddle 4 times now and has taken to it very easily. Mystic will make a great kids horse, lesson horse, trail horse.  She's very comfortable and can go western or english.
