Stepping Stone Farms is a place out in the country where rescued horses live and people who also sometimes need rescuing come to be with them.

It is a place where everything is functional and nothing is fancy. Nothing exists for show or to impress. Horse culture here takes a different direction to where the old and the resilient are prized and perfection is recognized for the fleeting thing it is.

I love this place because it is gentle and unadorned, a haven for the wounded where all are beautiful enough.
