The home of Flurry’s Hope.
Flurry’s Hope is named after Flurry, a blind horse that was given to Dr. Emilie Storch. This horse became an excellent mount but died suddenly in May of 2007. Because of her experience with Flurry, Emilie realized that wonderful horses were being killed just because they were blind. The blindness did not hinder their abilities to be ridden and enjoyed. Flurry’s Hope began with the vision to rescue these horses and now wants to raise public awareness of their ability to be excellent horses to ride.

Everyone Needs a Second Chance!
We are located on 30 beautiful acres at the corner of Lowe and Sharp Roads in Madison, NC. Our ministry is not only to provide a sanctuary for blind horses, but all kinds of second chances happen here!
Blind Horses are Outta Sight!
A Note From Our Director
- I am continually reminded of Proverbs 31:8 "Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves, for the rights of all who are destitute." And Proverbs 24:11-12 "Rescue those being led away to death; hold back those staggering towards slaughter. If you say. 'But we knew nothing about this,' does not He who guards your life know it? Will He not repay each person according to what he had done?" As you know, Flurry's Hope is not just about blind horses. It is about redeeming that which is valuable that others want to throw away. It is saying to the world, "There is a huge treasure in disability." Read more...Dr. Emilie Storch
