Banner is a 2003 15hh black and white pinto gelding who was originally born at MHARF after his pregnant mother, Kite, came in from a large 2002 Pine County humane case. Banner was adopted as a youngster but was never started under saddle. He has now been returned because his original adopter could no longer keep him. He is currently a student of our 2018 Trainer’s Challenge of the Unwanted Horse with trainer Thomas Smittle. Because Banner will spending the spring and summer in training and will compete in the Challenge on September 22nd, he will not be available for adoption until that date. If you would like more information on becoming pre-approved to adopt banner at the Challenge on 09/22/18 please see Adopting a Trainer’s Challenge Horse.
