Affectionately known as Grandma, Missy joined the herd when her owner started riding at New Hope. Prior to her career change, Missy enjoyed trail riding all over North Texas with and participated in a few endurance competitions.  The noise of children out on the trail always made Missy anxious, but then she started boarding next to an elementary school and thankfully learned that children were actually okay.  A roughly 1998 gray Arabian, Missy is a kind, patient teacher and leader for both horses and humans.  New therapy horses gravitate to her and she helps them assimilate and shows them the ropes.  With her smooth as glass trot and canter, Missy is the go-to for introducing those gaits to riders. She carefully keeps her riders centered and balanced while building their confidence.  Not much fazes Missy and she shows no signs of slowing down!
