Ivan is a beautiful POA cross gelding who was born in mid-May of 2014 and stands 14hh as a 3-year-old. His dam, Sochi, was a 12.3 hand POA (Appaloosa x Shetland) from the 02/2014 Wadena County humane case. Ivan is a very curious and friendly young gelding who is quite athletic. Even though we don’t know who Ivan’s sire is, due to his conformation, size, and athleticism we are guessing he may have been a quarter horse, meaning Ivan may mature taller than his current 14 hands. This extremely handsome and well-built young gelding is not started under saddle yet but he did spend the summer of 2017 in training for our 2017 Promise of the Future training competition with trainer Elizabeth Robins. Ivan and Elizabeth took home Reserve Champion in this competition! (You can Ivan’s 2017 POF Facebook page Here!)
Ivan is now back in training for our 2018 Trainer’s Challenge of the Unwanted Horse with trainer Melissa Stuckey. You can follow their training journey throughout the summer of 2018 on Ivan’s Official Trainer’s Challenge Facebook Page Here!
Because he is competing in the Challenge on September 22nd, Ivan won’t be available for adoption until that date. You can find more information about how to apply to adopt Ivan here: Adopting a Trainer’s Challenge Horse
