Aaron Murray Memorial Fund
Help Us Honor Aaron's Legacy and build the Memorial Trail Obstacle Course

The Aaron Murray Memorial Fund was started in January 2022 in honor of Aaron Murray and her passion for horses. Aaron spent her youth riding hunter/jumpers in Lubbock, Texas where she found her heart horse. An off the track thoroughbred, named “Firecracker”, gave Aaron wings as she learned to fly as an equestrian. Together they pursued ribbons at horse shows, natural horsemanship, and created a bond to last many lifetimes. To memorialize Aaron, her family chose Gentle Spirit Horses as her mission. Through this memorial fund, Aaron can continue her dreams and help people find their heart horses, so that they may also feel the unconditional love that she and Firecracker shared. By donating to the Aaron Murray Memorial Fund, you will be supporting rescue horses in their adoption processes, build arenas, and many other exciting projects at Gentle Spirit Horses.

Honoring Aaron

To honor Aaron and create a lasting memorial, we are building a trail obstacle course and outdoor arena at Gentle Spirit Horses Rescue.  This 3-acre area will not only help us expose horses to many skills to help them become adoptable, but also be available to the public for schooling their own horses. Eventually, we hope to hold regular Mountain Trail Obstacle events!

Last year, we worked hard at clearing the area of fallen trees and preparing for fencing. We have built several obstacles and are working with a course planner. We hope to completely fence in the area and have the first ten obstacles up in 2024!
