O N T I C E L L O  V    


I want to share this incredibly unique and impactful program—Warrior Horses, which 18-year-old Ryan Melendez created after he was diagnosed with Leukemia to raise funds and give kids life-changing experiences with Arabian horses. I lost both of my parents to cancer, so Ryan’s cause is especially meaningful to me, and I would love your support in helping him reach his goal. 

The program is simple. For every $1,000 raised, A Warrior Horse is matched with a Warrior Kid battling pediatric cancer to fight alongside them—giving a child a unique opportunity to form a special bond with one of these majestic animals. These kids can share in special moments and follow their Warrior Horse as it competes at events throughout the year, and kids who are able can visit their horse. A special Warrior ribbon will be awarded to Warrior Horses at national events, with photos shared with the Warrior Kids. THINK OF THAT….a child battling cancer gets their very own horse…battling right along side them. It’s such a phenomenal idea, and what we all strive to do – GIVE BACK.
Ryan’s goal is to raise $500,000 in the fight against cancer. Every dollar donated goes to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, a world leader in cancer research, to find a cure. I have registered both Monticello V(Cello) and Whata Doc Bar TR, (Teddy) however I want to invite my friends and family to be a part of this incredible cause, and have nominated Crown Juell XX to continue to raise money for Ryan to meet his goal. To contribute to this cause you can go to the below link and make a donation of any kind. You can donate to any of the three horses you choose!
I am truly honored to have this chance to share such a special love of the Arabian horse with a Warrior Kid.
Please join me in this unique opportunity to make a difference to the brave Warrior Kids and their families, and show the world the impact these beautiful horses can have on a person’s spirit. #WarriorHorses
