An EC Blog by Lisa Steinbaugh Flowers:

I would love to share a story about our 18 year old Paint horse My Mojos Hot. From Show Horse to Therapy Horse, My Mojos Hot (Mo) was adopted by our family in 2018 from a Re-Ride Quarter Horse Adoption Program. Mo was a very accomplished Show horse who recently retired from competition and enjoys his role as a therapy horse.

Mo has a heart for healing. He knows what someone needs and has the innate ability to connect with them by his sheer presence. His personality is as big as he is and he loves people! (He’s 17’3 and measures to a 92” blanket-he’s HUGE). The more people around him, the more he shines.

His favorite thing to do is give people kisses. I am incredibly passionate about Law Enforcement. My oldest daughter Meghan and son-in-law Alex are both deputies here in Ohio. My daughter’s share my passion for horses and both understand how our giant horse is able to help others.

Memories with Mo was created in honor of a friend and his wife that endured the worst scenario an officer and dispatcher can face. He was shot in the line of duty while his wife was the dispatcher on the call as it happened. Mo has been able to help their family heal after the countless surgeries and PTSD created by simply doing their jobs.

Mo has put smiles back on their faces and has given them an outlet that’s a safe place to come any time they need to. Mo travels to locations where he’s available for first responders and their families to come and hang out, learn about horses, brush him and sometimes even ride the big guy.

We also allow people to come to the farm and spend time with him there. It’s a safe place where no attendance is taken. No reporting to supervisors and nothing is on any record. The entire goal of the program is to allow those that see and hear the unthinkable to have a safe outlet to spend time with their families and 1600 pounds of therapy animal.

It’s impossible to be sad around Mo. Smiles are instantaneous and infectious. Check out the video on MO’s page :

I’m beyond grateful for Re-Ride! It’s a great opportunity for horses like Mo to have a new life with someone else. Mo has been well cared for his entire life! We get to enjoy the thousands of hours that went into making him the gentle giant he is. Check out Re-Ride for a horse that may get a new life with your family!

Mo was also featured in one of our photos of the day in 2022:
