ALLY

Ally has been in our satellite pasture, waiting out an injury, and then waiting for a space to open up here. She is a sweet and lovely OTTB (off the track) mare. She is good on the trail, and in the arena. She will need several months to get in shape for adoption so check back towards the middle or summer to see how this lovely girl is doing.

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.

1/4

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.

FUTURA

Futura_Mustard_edited.jpg

Futura: Is an older mare who is 90% blind. Despite her age and vision challenges, Futura has a pep in her step and has gained confidence with us, being ridden in lessons and on trails. She is gaining confidence, but has some ground/herd bound issues. For many, she is easier to ride than to work with on the ground. Likely will take someone with ground work skills, or open to learning them to work with her. She will need neighbors or a herd so she feels comfortable. As a riding horse she is patient, and a trusting horse.

SAMI

Sami: Is a cute 15.2 hand chestnut Quarter Horse. She is a fire rescue mare, and has made huge leaps since coming to us in October of 2017. Sami can be lightly ridden, but would fare best as a pasture pal or companion horse. She needs someone who will spend time with her to continue to build her confidence as she is a little frightful of the world at times. Sami truly has a beautiful disposition and thrives off bodywork, grooming, and walking.

MONTY

Monty: His demanding show career is behind him. He needs a life of easy trails and arena work. His jumping days are behind him. He can walk, trot and canter, but his work should be balanced to keep him healthy for the rest of his life. He needs someone who is calm with him. He would do best with an arena and trails, and someone to dote on him. When he is relaxed he stretches out for the bit and goes in a lovely frame. He needs a buddy or two. He is herd bound. If things go as planned he will likely be a  candidate for adoption this summer.

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.
