Meaning of Abijah



I’m a dreamer and being the daughter of a marine, I was/am a doer. I find freedom when pursuing the impossible and re-imagining the world. I remember first seeing a horse and being in awe of their size, their strength, their power, their breath, and yet they had a desire to get to know me. It reminded me of how I envisioned God. And, like faith, what lights me up is doing what others say can’t be done. I get fired up when I think of the track, the speed, the power, and how it brings people together. The track represents a moment in time when ALL breaking from that gate and ALL who are watching believe they matter enough to win the race…their race. What if we always lived in that truth? That we matter! Even at our lowest, WE ARE PRICELESS.

Abijah is Hebrew. It means “The Lord is my Father.” It is also the name I gave my first horse. It’s why Abijah’s exists; To bring His hope to others through the power of His amazing creation.
