10 year old, 14.1HH, black Arabian gelding. Adoption fee: $950
I am currently fostering this amazing horse for HHH. He was left tied to a tree with 2 other horses taken in by the rescue. Even though that must have been quite traumatic, we have been working with him and he has gotten over the neglect and is eager to please and very friendly. He is still green to ride, but he is incredibly willing, sensitive and responsive. He would do best with an experienced rider or a rider who has a coach or trainer to assist. Zorro did have some kind of accident at some point, leaving a small depression in the upper right side of his face, and scarring and chronic swelling in his right hind fetlock joint. This was likely a tendon injury that has healed, but will swell if he doesn’t get regular movement and exercise due to decreased circulation. The vet has cleared him for all riding activity, but we recommend being mindful and attentive to the joint. In addition, his desire to engage with people and with other horses makes him ideal to work as an Equine Guided Education horse, or in a similar type of therapeutic / life coaching work with horses.
If you are interested, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org, and I can provide more photos and details. An interview and home visit will be required.
