Nova is a grade paint mare who came to MHARF from a 2015 Hubbard County humane case. She is black rabicano (limited white roaning) and very pretty. Nova is broke to ride but she needs to be ridden in a bosal or some other type of bitless bridle. She has obviously been ridden in the past by someone with very rough hands. She has scarring on her lips and her poll and is reactive to touch on her mouth and face. We have determined this is not an ongoing pain issue but a response to previous poor handling. Nova requires an experienced and confident rider.
