Horse Lovers Ball
Saturday, February 7, 2015
When Maya came to us last August she was emaciated and her health was critical. (see full story below).
Today, she is thriving at HPL and is looking sleek and healthy. Her companion, Maggie, is also doing great.
At HPL our goal is to bring horses back to good health and get them adopted to loving homes. Maya’s story is one that is repeated many times at HPL, but we need your support to continue our work.
Please consider making a donation on Colorado Gives Day, December 9, to enable us to rescue horses from dire situations and give them a safe place where they will be sheltered and properly cared for.
Also, please consider sponsoring a horse (click here for details).
Helping a horse is one of the most rewarding experiences you can imagine.

Look at them now.
Maya and Maggie are making great strides.
On Saturday, August 23, 2014, Emie O’Neill, Barn Manager at HPL, got call from Arvada Animal Control about two horses that were in dire condition and needed a home where they could be properly cared for.
The Animal Control officers used a scale from 1 to 9 to evaluate what condition the horses were in. One horse was rated “1” the other was rated “2”. Time was running out for these animals.
Shortly after the call from Animal Control came in to HPL, Emie O’Neill and two other HPL volunteers showed up to meet Arvada Animal Control officers at the horse property for a voluntary owner surrender from an elderly woman who could no longer care for the horses.
The horses were kept in horrible conditions. They were confined in small pens and were terribly neglected.
When the two horses arrived at HPL later that day, they were quarantined in appropriate pens and got immediate veterinarian and ferrier care…and lots of love from the folks at HPL.
Within a week their conditions were much improved. They have a new lease on life, and new names: Maya and Maggie.
Maya, a black Arabian, is thought to be around 31 years old and Maggie, a bay thoroughbred cross, is around 10 years old.
If you’d like to come out to the HPL ranch and visit our newest horses and observe their progress, visitor’s hours are Wednesdays and Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. The HPL ranch if a fun place to visit for both adults and children, as well as school groups.
Maya and Maggie are just two more reasons that hope springs eternal at HPL.
