Blissful Dreams Rescue Ranch (Part 1)

Miles interviews Jamie & David from Blissful Dreams.

Jamie Kohler is the founder of Blissful Dreams Rescue Ranch, a a horse program where everyone is greeted with open arms and open hooves and no one is judged for who they are or where they come from.

Miles: I’m Miles. I’m The Autism News NetWORK, and this is the interview questions for Blissful Dreams. So my first question for you two. Question number one. Where’d you get your rescue horses?

Jamie: Various places. My trainer’s from Camden, South Carolina got most of them from Pennsylvania, and Freddy came from Florida.

Miles: All right. You, sir?

David: Same thing. [inaudible 00:00:37] are from different places. Jamie is in contact with a network of trainers and horse lovers trying to rescue these horses, and so the network kind of goes around and tries to find homes when they find horses that are going to be put down.

Miles: What breeds do you typically get?

Jamie: A variety. We’ve right now got Quarter Horses, a Welsh pony, a Shetland pony, thoroughbreds. And then of course the Belgian draft horse, and I believe Mark is a draft-cross of some sort.

Miles: We saw in your background, you were involved in championships. What did you have to do to train for those?

Jamie: I had to work really hard and ride daily all through college. I just rode and went to school. And that’s pretty much all I devoted my time to outside of school was riding and training and writing a variety of horses.

Miles: How many years?

Jamie: Let’s see, I started riding when I was six, so, now going on, it would be, gosh, that’s scary, I think 37 years.

Miles: Impressive.
