Welcome to the Herd


This big guy came to Renew over the summer and hopefully you’ve had the pleasure of getting to know him and his fun personality. Will is a 9 year old Irish Draught with a background in eventing. He excelled in cross country in his earlier career before health issues prevented him from competing at a high level. His owner, Beth, has graciously chosen to share him with the Renew family and he is settling in wonderfully to his new career.


Charm’s sweet personality is as big as her size and we are so blessed to have her join the Renew herd. Charm is a 10 year old Percheron/Paint cross who has done a little bit of everything – trail riding, foxhunting, jumping, dressage, sorting, and Western pleasure. She is from Reed City, Michigan, but has traveled extensively across the country with her previous family.


Rusty is the newest addition to the Renew herd and we are excited about the big things this little guy will do! Rusty is a 13 year old Quarter Horse with previous experience as a family trail pony. His previous owner hoped to train him to barrel race, but he was not excited about working that hard.  


Silk was foaled in 1999 and is a Morgan/Fresian cross. Silk has touched many lives at many different therapeutic riding centers, including at Renew from 2016 through the end of 2019. For the past two years, Silk has been an integral part of the program and a rider favorite at a center in Kentucky. Silk returned to Renew in December of 2021. Silk is owned by Melissa Conner.


Nobie was born in March, 2002 on an Amish farm in Pennsylvania. He was purchased by Dream Catchers at the Cori Sikich Therapeutic Riding Center in 2006 to pilot their driving program. Nobie was given to Melissa Conner in 2013 and served Renew’s students for the next six years. Nobie moved to Kentucky with Silk and was part of the herd at Dream Riders for two years before returning to Renew. We are excited to have this character back with the Renew herd!
