Jimmy’s Cricket

Age: 24

Breed: Quarterhorse

Gender: Mare

Size: 15hh


Jimmy’s Cricket or “Cricket” was the beloved horse of late Opry Legend Jimmy C. Newman.  Cricket came to Safe Harbor after his passing, and has been settling in to her foster home.  She is a friendly mare; easy to approach in field, and very calm.  We were told that Cricket was Mr. Newman’s pride and joy and the horse that he chose above his others to be HIS.

Since coming to rescue, Cricket has been ridden bareback by children on a lead line.  She hasn’t had her formal training evaluation yet, but we suspect this beautiful girl is beginner broke, and if anything just might need some brush up since it has been a few years since she did any significant work.  Cricket is healthy and sound, and is up to date on all shots and has current proof of negative coggins.  Her adoption fee is $250.
