CVHR Team Bally

Introducing the Remarkable Duo: Jocelyn and Bally

Hello and welcome to the page dedicated to one of Central Virginia Horse Rescue’s most incredible teams—CVHR Team Bally. We’re thrilled that you’re here to follow along on an inspiring journey of resilience, healing, and unbreakable bonds.

Meet Bally

Bally is a 3-4-year-old Thoroughbred mare who came to Central Virginia Horse Rescue during a severe neglect seizure in June. Unfortunately, she was one of the worst cases on the farm, her condition so dire that we weren’t always certain she would pull through. But Bally is a fighter, and she’s starting to show signs of her true spirited nature as she gradually recovers.

The Challenge and the Showcase

Jocelyn and Bally have teamed up to embark on a “comeback tour,” beginning with the highly anticipated Youth Trainer Challenge and Showcase for Central Virginia Horse Rescue. This event is not just a competition but an opportunity for growth, exposure, and advocacy for horse welfare.

In this challenge, Jocelyn will be working closely with Bally, employing a series of rehabilitation exercises, training modules, and loving care, aiming to bring out the best in this beautiful mare. The end goal is not just to win a competition, but to completely rehabilitate Bally, readying her for a new chapter in life—one where neglect and suffering are distant memories.

Join Us on This Journey

This isn’t just about a girl and a horse; it’s about the resilience of spirits, the kindness of hearts, and the harmony that is possible when the right partnership is found. Here, you will find regular updates on Bally’s condition, milestones in her training, exclusive interviews with Jocelyn, photos, videos, and much more.

We are so excited to have you with us as we root for Team Bally. Your support and encouragement mean the world to us. Stay tuned for a journey that promises to be filled with challenges, triumphs, and, above all, endless inspiration.
