Equine Therapy Horses Make Unexpected Stop in Morgantown

Horses and riders scheduled to ride in the inaugural day parade in Washington, D.C. on Monday had an unexpected stop near Morgantown Saturday.

AT EASE is a nonprofit equine therapy program, located near Deerfield, Wisconsin, that serves disabled veterans and service members. It operates out of Freedom Stables.

On their trip they broke down near Sabraton, and needed to find a place for the horses to stay. Local horse boarding farm, Broken Arrow Stables took in the three horses for free to help them out.

"Anyway, Billy went and picked them up and brought the three horses here, and we turned them out. Somebody from Wisconsin sent three young boys in a truck, they drove all night to get here," said Karen Coombs, the owner of Broken Arrow Stables. "They pulled in some time around 9 or 10 this morning and hooked up and took off. They're on their way over there."

AT EASE was selected to ride in the parade because of the work it does with veterans.

They are on their way there now, and will be in the parade Monday.
