Five Cent

Five Cent

Age:  18 Breed:  Quarter Horse / cross Height:  14.1hh Are you looking for a big guy who is stout and strong?  Five Cent may be the one for you.  He is a lovely grey, 18 years old, and a wide built, QH.  We put a ride on Five Cent knowing he had been sitting in the field for 3-4 years without being worked, and he impressed us with his level head and knowledge, earning a beginner approved label from his evaluator.  He does have more go than whoa, so a timid beginner won’t be a perfect match.  That said, he neck reins, understands leg and seat, is not spooky, and is very responsive all around. He is gentle on the ground, stands for the farrier, and is shod.  He loads easily, ties and stalls. Five Cent is blind in one eye, but has been for years, and it is not a behavioral or safety issue with him.  He’s fully adapted to being sighted on one side only. This gorgeous boy has a $300 adoption fee, and is ready for adoption...

Almighty O “Romeo”

Almighty O “Romeo”

PENDING ADOPTION Do you dream of having your own descendant of the legendary Secretariat to compete with?  Then look no further than Almighty O, lovingly known as Romeo at Safe Harbor. This 2007 16.2hh Thoroughbred has been utilized in beginner riding lessons, and is ready to head to the show ring this season.  He was only lightly raced, and at 11 years old he has enough age to have a good head on his shoulders.  He has no vices and no injuries, and clean legs. Romeo’s adoption fee is $1,250.  He thrives with structure and a program, and is not a horse than can sit for months at time, but also doesn’t need to work daily.  A good one to two times a week routine suits him quite well.  He is an After The Track horse with Safe Harbor and a phenomenal gelding.  We rate him intermediate as he is a safe mount for a beginner with experienced supervision, but would not be an ideal horse for a beginner not working with a trainer.   ALMIGHTY O  (USA) dkb/br.

Maestro Jericho J

Maestro Jericho J

Jericho is a 10 year old Percheron Thoroughbred cross.  He is in all around good health and has never known abuse–he came to us after his loving owner passed away. Jericho needs an experienced owner who won’t let him get away with being big and bossy.  He knows he is big, and will push someone around who is not assertive with him, but he responds very well to correction.  He is about 16.2hh and over 1200 pounds; as such we will want someone with prior horse experience who understands leadership to be his forever home. Jericho stands for the farrier and is broke to ride.  He is however, a horse without a strong work ethic.  If allowed, he will lay down about 10 minutes in to a ride; not dangerously, he just wants to suggest that work is over-rated.  He can be trained out of this, but it will take persistence from someone able to read his cues and push him past the attempted lay down who is committed to letting him know that he needs to follow leadership not take the lead role. Jericho leads, loads, ties, and does all aspects of basic horsemanship well.  He is sound barefoot. His adoption fee is...

Lully

Lully

Lully is an American Miniature Horse Association registered mini horse, and she is a show quality mini with perfect conformation.  She came to rescue extremely fearful, but with training has been working through this.  She has not overcome catch/release yet, but is making progress almost daily.  In the arena, she snaps to attention, and LOVES the positive contact.  She acts like a show mini, and proudly complies with what is asked of her for halter performance.  This mini can go far.  Her adoption fee is only $250.  At this point, Lully is ready for an experienced home, but as her training progresses she will be able to go to a home of any experience level that can provide appropriate...

Chill Chip

Chill Chip

Age: 13 Breed: Tennessee Walking Horse Height: 17 hands Rider level: Beginner Chill Chip is a BIG BOY.  This 13 year old Walking Horse is 17HH, though he rides like 16hh.  He has high withers, which makes him measure extra tall.  Our veterinarian’s soundness eval showed Chip has no issues whatsoever in soundness, though an old untreated eye injury has left one eye abcessed and he is likely blind in that eye.  It does not need to be removed, and is not painful.   Chip has likely had this issue for some time, as he is not reactive to the loss of sight in that eye, and has no sensitivity issues with it. Chip can be opinionated about being caught, but he is food motivated and is easy to catch and halter with food, in stall, or in a round pen.  Once haltered he is an easy going dream of a horse.  He tacks up well, stands for the farrier, leads, loads, and under saddle you couldn’t ask for better. His foster mom is starting to take him out on trail rides to get him refreshed to real world experience. If you are looking for a BIG gaited guy who is a dream trail horse, then Chip is your man.  $500 adoption fee....
