Horse Adoption

Name: Renegade - ADOPTED!!

Age: 12-13 years old

Breed: Quarter Horse-type

Height: 15 hands

Gender: Mare

Colour: Bay

 

Rideability: Renegade is a now working nicely under saddle and is a very willing and sensible partner. She stands well for mounting and will do a good whoa, walk, jog and backup. She is also doing well navigating some trail obstacles and hacks out well. Renegade is still quite green at the lope/canter and needs more work on her transitions and pace. Renegade is currently being schooled Western but could certainly transition to English. Renegade would make an excellent pleasure/trail partner for an intermediate or above rider. She is not currently suitable for a beginner rider but could be with more miles. View her video here. 

Additional information: Renegade has lovely ground manners and is very social with humans. She lunges, crossties and trailers well. She gets along well in a mixed herd and is an easy keeper. Renegade is up-to-date on vaccinations, worming and dental. She has been sound and healthy to date. She has received some chiropractic care to treat mild TMJ and now has normal movement in her jaw. Her veterinarian feels this condition has been successfully resolved, but she may require an occasional adjustment. She is currently on good quality hay and pasture with supplement.

Name: Beau

 

Age: 5 years old

Breed: Thoroughbred

Height: 16.1 hands

Gender: Gelding

Colour: Bay

 

Rideability: Beau tries hard, although he is young and inexperienced. He is not overly “spooky” or difficult to work with and he is curious about new things. He may have been track trained at some point, but since we do not know his completer history we are starting from scratch with his training. We have just started him on the lunge line and he is enjoying learning the basics. At this time we are focusing on building his confidence and improving his fitness level.  He would benefit from an experienced owner/handler as he is a big, energetic boy who is prone to some” baby moments.” Beau has a lot of potential and, with his willing attitude and engaging personality, should be a great fit for any discipline.

Additional information: This handsome lad has a lot to offer to the right home. He is very social and loves his people; he also gets along well in a mixed herd and tends to be at the bottom of the pecking order. Beau is up-to-date on vaccines, dental and worming. He is sound, healthy and ready to head down a new path.

Name: Jack - ADOPTED!!

Age: Approx. 15 years old

Breed: Percheron/Quarter Horse

Height: 14.3 hands

Gender: Gelding

Colour: Sorrel

Rideability: Jack is very responsive and responds best to light aids, with soft hand and leg. He is a forward-moving horse, but is also calm and sensible. He is just starting back into work so is a bit rusty, but has demonstrated that he is a willing and happy partner. Jack would make a super pleasure/trail partner for someone who wants a fun, energetic equine pal.

Additional information: Jack is well mannered and easy to handle on the ground. He gets along well in a mixed herd and is at the middle of the pecking order. He is a very easy keeper and prefers to live outdoors with access to a run-in shelter instead of coming into a stall at night. Jack is up-to-date on vaccinations and dental care. He is sound and healthy and looking for a new pasture to call home.
