GEORGE (CL)

GEORGE (CL)

Category: Non-Riding Companion
Age: 22
Gender: Gelding

Breed: Quarter Horse

Bio: We are very sad to announce that George will be retiring from the programs at Hearts & Horses. Prior to joining the herd, George had a very successful competitive, but physically demanding, career as a cutting horse. As he has aged he has been experiencing periods of lameness that over the past year have not responded sufficiently to treatment to allow him to comfortably continue to serve our participants. We are beginning the careful search to find that perfect home for George, an amazing gelding who has been a favorite here at Hearts & Horses since 2016. George's ideal home is one with a space large enough to live without too much fresh grass. He needs the company of geldings rather than mares. George is retiring from Hearts & Horses to become a companion horse, however he would LOVE to be able to continue to do an occasional pony ride at the walk with a young child from time to time. If you are interested in George, please submit a "Letter of Interest" to our Director of Equine Services, which should contain information about the following items: - your experience with horses - what George's job would be - a description of the living situation available for him (turn out, quality of feed, shelter and general care) - your ability to meet, maintain and provide care in case of a veterinary emergency Send your Letter of Interest to Liz de Kock - liz@heartsandhorses.org. If you have any questions, you can also call Liz at (970) 663-4200 x 304 Thank You!

GINGER (CL)

GINGER (CL)

Category: Non-Riding Companion
Age: 6
Gender: Mare
Height: 15

Breed: Quarter Horse

Bio: Ginger is a sweet, gentle mare that I bought a few months ago with the intention of breaking her to ride. Her previous owner had used her as a broodmare and as a result she is currently not yet started under saddle. She has very good ground manners and stands at around 15 hands high, though she can be slightly head shy at times and can be a bit spooky. She has two club feet in the front with her left being slightly worse than her right, however she is sound and with the proper farrier work and corrective shoeing. She is an extremely loving and wonderful horse to be around, is safe to pick up all four feet, has no bad habits such as biting or kicking, and absolutely loves children. She ground ties, leads, loads in the trailer, and will stand for the farrier, though she is still slightly impatient at times since she is still learning. I absolutely adore this beautiful mare and she’s already come so far in her ground work training. It breaks my heart to have to re-home her, however at this time I am unable to provide her with the proper corrective shoeing that she needs due to the financial costs. I want to give my sweet girl the best possible future with someone she can love until the end of her days. If you’d be interested in coming out to meet this sweet, amazing and wonderful girl, or if you have any further questions about her, please call or text me, or reach me by email and I'll be happy to reply as soon as possible.

ROMEO (CL)

ROMEO (CL)

Category: Non-Riding Companion
Age: 21
Gender: Gelding
Height: 14

Breed: Welsh Pony

Bio: Romeo has been an amazing horse but with him foundering we can not afford to keep him due to Covid. He has had 3 years of training and can do multiple tricks at liberty including Spanish walk, and is beginning to learn how to bow. The vet is hopeful that he can begin light riding this spring. Since he has had so much time off he is very energetic and needs an advanced rider working with him. He is allowed to do groundwork at a walk but nothing more until he recovers. He needs shoes on his front feet due to Laminitis. He is a very brave horse and even won second in the novice divison of the Colorado obstacle challenge. He has a challenging personality and needs a lot of work since he has had so much time off. He would do best in a dry lot pasture because he hates being cooped up. Before he foundered he was ridden in a drill team and is good with other horses riding next to him and close to him. He was also ridden completely at liberty in an enclosed arena. He is willing to learn, learns very quickly, and is very food motivated. Treats are the way to his heart but need to be kept in check because he can start biting when given too many. He has been ridden English and Western and is good around cows, can be roped off of maybe once he's recovered. He has carried flags and even pulled sleds. He was being used in low-level dressage right before he foundered and has had some classical dressage training.

Now I would love her to have a forever home as a companion horse where she will never have to be without the company of another horse. She is UTD on everything except shots, which I can have taken care of soon. I have vet records and films of her fused knee. She has been on Previcox for a month and is doing great on it.

Breed: Thoroughbred

Bio: Stella is great with kids, small kids in particular. She is generally submissive around other horses except when food is involved and then she can become rather defensive. She is extremely friendly, especially when treats are involved. Stella can be spooky around the hitching post due to previous mishandling, she was rescued from this situation when she was very young. She has recovered from an old hock injury and can stumble on this leg if not warmed up properly.

WHISPER (CL)

WHISPER (CL)

Category: Riding
Age: 5
Gender: Mare
Height: 14.1

Breed: Quarter Horse

Bio: Whisper is a very sweet, quiet, in your pocket horse. She is 14.1 - 14.2h and smaller frame. She has literally been all over the Western US on trails. Last Fall I took her on another multi-day pack trip and she did fantastic with a group of horses and mules that were all new to her. She only walks and trots. She is good with her feet and goes barefoot in the winter. She blankets well, loads and hauls well, hobbles and has been on a high line. She paws while eating and occasionally when tied to trailer. Her special consideration is that she is maintained on low starch diet and can NOT receive Flu/Rhino vaccine. I'm happy to explain further if you are seriously interested in providing her an excellent home.

ZEPHYR

ZEPHYR

Category: Riding
Age: 18
Gender: Mare
Height: 15.1

Breed: Arabian Cross

Bio: This beautiful horse has a quiet disposition and is easy to handle on the ground but still green under saddle due to a late start in her training. She requires shoes and would be best suited for mainly walk/trot work with the occasional canter thrown in. My best match for an adopter is someone confident in the saddle and has resources such as a trainer to help guide them in a successful partnership.

Handler Experience: Intermediate - Has a working knowledge of horse behavior and herd dynamics, and is able to catch, halter, lead, and saddle safely. Has a working knowledge of the basics of movement on the ground, and is comfortable and balanced in the saddle at all gaits.
