Anna

Breed: Paint

Age: 11

Height: 15.1hh

Gender: Mare

PENDING ADOPTION. Anna came to Safe Harbor from a neglect situation, and is in weight gain rehab right now.  She has a very sweet temperment, stands for the farrier, and loads well.  She enjoys being blanketed, as well.

Anna had her first evaluation in December of 2014, and our trainer has evaluated her at intermediate with beginner potential.  On the ground she doesn’t like to move out for longeing, and she is fairly one sided, but she is compliant with time and pressure to whatever is asked.  She flexes well, and backs.  Under saddle she did well at all gaits and backs beautifully.  Anna behaves well with very light pressure and a gentle bit (she was ridden in a barrel saddle and a 4.5″ eggbut bit with rollers).  She understands seat and leg pressure.

Anna will thrive with more time under saddle. Her primary role in rescue has been to eat.  She currently measures 15.1hh and weighs 990 pounds.  We believe her ideal weight will be about 1150 pounds.  She needs some brush up with a compassionate owner to become a beginner ready horse.  Her adoption fee is $400.
