Charity & Her Horses - It's a Life-long Journey . . . & There's Lots of Happiness In Our Journey!

I’m Charity, owner of The Horse Mafia. I have loved horses all my life. And I, from a very young age, have always owned horses and I have always lived the life of a cowgirl. And I have always wanted to use the beauty of horses and my bond with my horses to help inspire and motivate others. I grew up on a small, working farm in Coal City, Alabama. Even as a young girl, I was greatly impacted by my horses…my heart and soul needed them in my life for me to be happy.

The love of my life was a large, leopard appaloosa stallion named “Topper”. He was so beautiful and he was my boy. No one else could ride him and actually stay on him. It wasn’t that he was mean to everyone else…they were scared to death of him and he knew it. When I was little, our cattle would sometimes get out of the fence and it was Topper and I to bring them all in again. He loved doing that. He literally rode me hundreds, maybe thousands of miles bringing in cattle. I spent many, many hours on horseback and many, many hours just being with him. I talked to him just like he was a person. I will always, always be grateful for having such a beautiful horse in my childhood and young adult life. He truly helped shape me into the woman I have become.

I practically grew up in our barn, a beautiful structure in which I felt more comfortable than a house. You may have heard the song, “The house that built me” by Miranda Lambert. Well, our barn was the barn that built me. I was always, always in the barn. I would even take my books to the barn to study. The “feel” of an old barn can’t be beat. I guess that is why now I love getting good shots of old barns. I like them much more than beautiful homes!

My childhood and young adult life evolved into my “now” life with my horses and the creation of The Horse Mafia. I now own six horses, Edge (leopard appaloosa), Mystic (appaloosa mare), Dakota (colt of Mystic), Hank (rescued Tennessee Walker), Lena, (rescued paint mare) and Hawk (colt of Lena). And most of the time, I have visiting horses that stay on our property for extended periods.

The vision of The Horse Mafia is to use Charity's life-long bond with her horses to bring inspiration and hope to those who may be going through difficult and life-challenging situations. All of us go through difficult times in our lives. Charity has always been able to find comfort and peace in the presence of her horses. The Horse Mafia is the realization of Charity's life-long dream to be able to bring the same kind of comfort and peace to others through her work with horses.
