Elvis

  • AGE: 18
  • BREED: Quarter Horse
  • GENDER: Gelding
  • HEIGHT: 15.3 hh
  • RIDER EXPERIENCE: Intermediate
  • FEE: $800

Truly loved by his owner, Elvis was surrendered because she just couldn’t financially provide for him any longer. He has been diagnosed with Polysaccharide Storage Myopathy (PSSM) commonly known as ‘tying-up’. PSSM is a genetically-inherited condition where the muscles of the horse are unable to properly store glucose (sugar). The condition is managed through a low-starch diet and consistent exercise. With his diagnosis Elvis still thrives as a light ride horse so long as he is provided consistent exercise. He is still under training evaluation.

HEALTH/BEHAVIORAL INFORMATION: Diagnosed with PSSM type 2 moderate, requires a low starch diet and consistent exercise

  • BREED: Grade
  • GENDER: Mare

Rhett

  • AGE: 16
  • BREED: Paint
  • GENDER: Gelding
  • HEIGHT: TBD
  • HANDLER EXPERIENCE: Advanced
  • FEE: $TBD

Rhett is a gorgeous horse who found himself in an at-risk situation. His loving owner of many years became unemployed, and upon facing foreclosure he was unable to continue to care for Rhett. Having arrived slightly underweight, Rhett is in now in a healthier state. This big, loveable gelding will need a kind and patient person to help him find is way in the world again. He is a well-built, kind-hearted, beautiful boy. As we continue to uncover more about this sweet gelding we will be able to focus his training in a more specific direction. For now he simply enjoys long, sunny, Colorado days, playing in the pasture, and making new horse friends – all of which building strength, confidence and skills to move towards his new life!

HEALTH/BEHAVIORAL INFORMATION: Easy keeper; currently under evaluation
