“Until one has loved an animal,
a part of one's soul remains unawakened.”
ANATOLE FRANCE | POET
Our name comes from the first rescue horse we cared for with the trust of Terolyn Horse Rescue, Inc.. Aria was only with us for a few days before she crossed the rainbow bridge, but we were all in love with her already. This sweet horse not only gave hugs, but she loved to be with people. Being in her presence helped us be present and we learned how to revel in every minute and appreciate how lucky we are to work with these amazing creatures. Along with Terolyn's Founder, Teri, and her staff and volunteers, we believe Aria came into our lives for a reason and we hope to carry on her legacy by helping other horses like her.
For the Love of Aria is committed to giving mustangs a solid foundation of care and training as they navigate a successful transition away from the wild. Advocating for these at-risk horses will remain our priority.
We BELIEVE it takes a collaborative community to facilitate change and help America’s mustangs. We will provide education, resources, and support to the humans making a difference for these beloved horses.
- Hands-on gentling and training
- Partner with other organizations that align with our beliefs and values
- Host clinics to help others learn about wild mustangs and how to work with them
- Give people the ability to adopt gentled and trained mustangs so they can also partner with these amazing horses
- Create programs so that more people can come to our facility to learn about the bigger picture and what is happening in our HMA’s
- Raise awareness for the growing number of mustangs in government short and long-term holding facilities
You might have heard us say that Stormie Acres Ranch was "worth the wait." We mean that from the very bottom of our hearts. Nestled under a ridge that overlooks the Bijou Basin, and bordered by some of the most expansive cattle grazing in our entire state, we are grateful for the views, neighbors, and everything that our new facility has to offer.
The new property, located in Kiowa, CO, features 41 acres for the horses to have as much pasture access as we could possibly manage. We have a 13-stall barn with an attached 300' x 75' heated indoor arena. More than just the barn and arena, this new property actually came already set up with exactly the pens we require for working with wild/feral horses or those with emotional needs. When we first saw it, we wondered how it could even be possible that it was as perfect for us and our herd as it is.
We are also very fortunate to have an enormous outdoor arena with excellent footing, a large wash rack with mats, and a tack room we love to call home during barn hours. With access to trails for DAYS, we are so very blessed to have found the most heavenly place to call home!
