Synopsis: The true story of Marsha Hartford Sapp and her wild Mustang, Cobra, is as magical as any Disney fairytale. It is a tale of second chances, belief, love and redemption. It is what inspired the writing of the song and creation of this heartwarming video.
Cobra turned out to be a dressage natural, winning Adequan/USDF All-Breed Award Reserve Champion title for First Level in his first year of competition. He has gone on to achieve great things as a dressage horse, most notably 2015 all-breed champion for Prix St. George. 2015 was also the year he discovered western dressage and earned western dressage champion for level 1 freestyle and level 1 test 1.

Cobra’s story inspired country artist Peter Prince to write a song telling the tale of how this unlikely horse went from wild to world champion. If this song and the accompanying music video doesn’t give you the feels, you’re a monster.

Marsha Hartford-Sapp is originally from Maine, coming to Tallahassee to attend Florida State University in 1998. After receiving degrees in Psychology and Political Science in 2002, she then returned for her Masters in Public Administration. Since delving into the professional equestrian community, Marsha’s equestrian center has focused on the “Complete Equestrian Education”, with a focus on developing the young horse, and developing the young rider. The equestrian center not only teaches classical dressage, but hunters, jumpers, and training the young horse from the ground up. Passionate about “least resistance” training, Marsha has made a name for herself nationwide with her effective training techniques and outstanding young horse development program. She has entered sucessfully, and made top 5 placing 3 different times in the national “Extreme Mustang Makeover” competition. Marsha has been the President of the Southern Hunter Jumper Association, President for the Southwind Eventing and Dressage Association, and is a current coach for the FSU Equestrian team since 2004.
