Yellow Horse would like to remember our beloved Billy. In his honor we have created the Billy Legacy. Please see our Donate Page to learn more.
Billy was an amazing confidence builder. We liked to start all of our participants with ground work and Billy was the best guy to learn with. Our students loved just hanging out with Billy, braiding his mane and tail, turning him into a unicorn, leading him through obstacles and just showering him with hugs and kisses. He will be greatly missed as he was such a large part of Yellow Horse. Consider donating to our Memorial Garden or The Billy Legacy in his honor.
