On April 26 & 27, 2019 “Midnight Dream” a Lakota War Pony

from the Standing Rock Sioux Nation carried the Saddle Of Hope in the Gathering Of Nations PowWow

Horse & Rider Regalia Parade as a “Spirit Rider” in memory of all the horses inhumanely slaughtered. 


This is a great honor bestowed in memory of the horses!

SADDLE OF HOPE ...for the Horse Nation 

Documentary Film

...was made possible by generous donations to Thundering Hooves Non-Profit Organization 

from kind-hearted people like you.  

An old broken down saddle donated to the Thundering Hooves Memorial Fence finds its way to a Kentucky barn where an epic journey as a Voice 4the Horse Nation begins.


With only one half restored the saddle represents a semblance of hope for the horses. 

The worn out side of the Saddle represents how so many horses end up in the slaughter pipeline once they have 

 served their purpose. 

The restored side represents the potential of these discarded horses ... that if given a second chance they too can be repurposed and serve a productive life.
