Your Right Horse Is Waiting for You!
Cookie, 19, Owner of a Bridle Salon
Cookie is an approximately 19- to 20-year-old Appaloosa miniature mare, standing around 35” tall. This quick learner needs to go to an experienced home where she will benefit from consistent handling. Cookie will accept a saddle and a light leadline rider! She will lunge nicely and hops right on the trailer. She seems to enjoy being worked with and doing groundwork. Cookie will do well in a home with equine companions near her size as well as a dry lot with 24/7 access to hay.
Momma Mia, 10, Dance Instructor, Specializes in the Neigh-Neigh
Momma Mia look at this beautiful horse! This girl is a blank slate.

She is quick to learn and sensitive to cues!
Rivendell, 8, Horspitality for Local Fellowship
Intelligent, kind, polite and studious, Rivendell has a quiet spirit that often reminds us of a librarian. But don’t let that fool you: he’s got his own motor that will try, try and try again to get it right. He’s also shown great affinity towards being a jumper. Because of a previous injury, it’ll be best if those jumps are under 3’6”, but you won’t find a horse that will be happier to do it. Rivendell would do best with someone experienced that can remind him Rome wasn’t built in a day.
Don’t see the animal for you? Love is still out there and could even be at your local shelter!
