Noble steed retirement home needed


To the Editor:

Noble, a 28-year-old Percheron cross, has retired as a therapy horse for Rising Tide Therapeutic Equestrian Center and is searching for a home with plenty of pasture and a few equine friends to keep him company. Since 2007, Noble has worked full time to bring therapy, love, and joy to more than 100 children and adults with special needs and he has earned a well-deserved rest after giving so much to so many. Rising Tide’s mantra is, “In riding a horse, we borrow freedom.” We have borrowed heavily from Noble and it is time to give back to him.

He currently is a happy resident at Rising Tide’s barn but will need a new home to make way for new therapy horses. If you or someone you know might be able to offer him a home or assist us in our search, please call 508-693-1185 and leave a message or email us at If you would like to know more about Rising Tide’s programs our website is
