CONNECT WITH MEREDITH CHERRY HERE:
Their home was remote with few neighbors or resources nearby and because her husband was the sole possessor of the keys to their one vehicle, Meredith had no way of leaving. The years passed and Meredith lived on guard and in fear, her lifelong dream of owning a horse and being free receding until the day she was able to enact her escape plan, drive to safety, and start over.
Now the proud owner of Apollo, a Peruvian Paso-Mustang Palomino, Meredith travels across the United States on horseback raising awareness about domestic violence, and she is finally living life the life she wanted.
Meredith Cherry and her horse Apollo are riding through all the lower 48 states to raise awareness about domestic violence. They began their adventures on New Year’s Day of 2017 and expect to finish in early 2021. To date they have completed over 8,000 miles and 31 states.
