The Stevens Family Horse Farm began over a dozen years ago with one horse, a blind purebred Arabian mare named Erikatez. She
was given to us to prevent her from going to a slaughterhouse or other numerous fates that she didn't deserve. You might ask
yourself what use a blind mare could be, but to do so would be to underestimate the intellect, and trust a horse can have.
She would, could and did nearly everything a sighted horse could do. She developed an intense loyalty and love for my wife
Tracey, to the point that the relationship between the two was so strong, it was hard to tell where one ended and the other
They talked to each other daily, nickers and whinnies and whispers that only they seemed to comprehend. They shared
pumpkinbread at breakfast (the family joke was that Erika would eat anything that didn't eat her first), she once chased Tracey
across the field to get a bite of her bread!
That horse trained us, and taught us the amazing relationship and communication
that can develope between human and horse. After several additions to the family, (both children and horses), and many years
of friendship, our dear Erika left us the night of Dec 5th, 2000. The Stevens Family Horse Farm, and this website is dedicated
to her memory. Our greatest equine teacher and friend.
