- Who We Are
Black Bay, Gelding | DOB: 2006 | Arrival: 2/1/2021 | 14 hands
Crystal Peaks found Warrior through the Deschutes County Sheriff’s office. His story is one of neglect and starvation. The Sheriff’s Department secured his freedom by seizing this gelding and two pasture mates from their previous owners. After this seizure, Warrior became “evidence” in the neglect case. The Department was not able to rehome him until after the case was closed—many months after the original rescue. During this time Warrior lived at the Sheriff’s Ranch and regained his health entirely.
In January 2021, Crystal Peaks welcomed Warrior into our herd family. Our contact at the Department asked if we would be willing to do a television interview with her about Warrior’s adoption and the Ranch. This was a huge answer to our prayers that God would continue to unite us with the Sheriff’s Department. On the day of his adoption, several local news stations aired the story. Already God is using this horse to share the hope of Jesus Christ with our community!
Warrior is approximately a 15 year-old Arabian/Morgan cross, rideable and is currently in training to become a children’s session horse.
Our new gelding has a unique trust of his handlers, joy and love for life. His name combined with these personality traits, remind us that—in Christ—we too are warriors who overcome through trusting God and walking in His joy and love.
