Dex: This handsome fella is full of personality! Dex is a sweet, curious, and sometimes spirited gelding, so he would need at least an advanced beginner with a trainer to be a good match. He is a big mover, and has solid Dressage foundations. Unfortunately, due to a hock injury, he cannot jump.

Dex is a joy to ride both in the arena and on trails. He wants to work and likes a new challenge, so he would make someone a great partner for Dressage, gymkhana, Western or English pleasure, or casual riding.

He is good with other horses, stands well for the farrier, and is generally an easy keeper.

Dex is an approximately 15 year old, bay Thoroughbred, 16hh.

Ally is a sweet and lovely horse, with a gentle and kind personality. She is good on the trail, and in the arena. She will need several months to get in shape for adoption so check back soon to see how this girl is doing.

Ally is a 2001 bay Thoroughbred mare, 16.1hh. She raced and won a handful of races including a minor stakes race before being sold and changing careers to eventing. She has been retired and living her best life in a huge pasture for the past 10 years.

Ember

Ember is a funny and endearing mare with a heart of gold. She was surrendered by her owner. Ember takes care of even her youngest riders, enjoys a cuddle, and has weathered many difficult health challenges which she will continue to face for the rest of her life. Ember can be unnerved so needs someone with good groundwork skills, or willing to work with us to understand her insecurities. Herds are really important to Ember so she will need a good horse companion(s) or stabled with horses who can be friends.

Dancer: This kind horse has the sweetest disposition! Great to work with, wonderful with other horses, and an easy keeper.  Early in his career he had some solid training that has held through.  He has lovely ground manners, a joy for the farrier, and a pleasure on trails. He loves attention, and enjoys being  petted. He is our go-to horse that anyone can handle, kids or beginners. He is respectful at feed time and on the ground. He would be a great companion horse as he has been a fabulous pasture pal with all horses he has been turned out with. He has been in small and large fields. Danser was a wonderful lesson horse, but it is time for him to retire. For fun, he has amazing bloodlines! Danser is an approximately 20 year old, bay Arabian, standing about 14.2 hands tall.

A cutie, no doubt! If you are interested in learning more, or would like information about our adoption process, please contact us.

We recently found out Danser has Cushings Disease and is on Prascend to treat it.

He is doing fabulously with his new medication and is a happy, easy guy.

About our rescue and adoption policies:

 

Money from the adoption/sale of horses will help to cover the cost of hay, vet and farrier,  and rescuing other horses who are in need. We are a 501c3 where people can learn about horses, who they are, what they need, and help care for them as we work to rehabilitate and train horses to prepare them for a new home.We seek to make the best possible matches.

 

We want adopted horses to improve their lives — stalls or paddocks with daily turnout, access to room to move, pastures, permanent pasture space, or whatever will be a good fit for a pasture pal or a riding horse. We want horses to have a primary caretaker, and get more time and attention than they would at our rescue. We offer support, help, and assistance with your new partner and three free lessons. We want to work with you to make this the best horse partnership possible.

 

New caretakers must be willing to stay in contact with Well Trained Horses via email, telephone, and/or traditional mail–we love pictures & stories. New caretakers must agree not to resell the horse they’ve adopted from Well Trained Horses. We are looking for homes for horses with caretakers for life. If transferring ownership becomes necessary, you agree in advance to be in touch with Well Trained Horses, and together, work out a plan that with which we agree. We encourage you to take the lead but will work with you during the process and must approve any new caretakers. Well Trained Horses will take back the adopted horse in case all re-homing efforts are unsuccessful.
