Pablo (Graduate of the 2019 Trainer’s Challenge)

Update: Pablo has been Adopted!

Pablo is a 14hh sorrel mustang who came in from a South Dakota humane case (among the 907 horses seized from the International Society for the Protection of Mustangs and Burros). Click Here to read more about their intake. He was unhandled at intake. Pablo was foaled in approximately 2015. He had been growing slowly, likely due to malnourishment throughout his younger years but he seems determined now to catch up! He did not have testicles at intake but he did show some stud behavior so we sent bloodwork in to check for testosterone which would mean he was a cryptorchid stallion. The bloodwork came back positive so he did require surgery to remove his undescended testicles in 2017.  Pablo is now a really nice gelding with a very good temperament. He spent the summer of 2018 in in-hand training with JoEllen Kimmel for our 2018 Promise of the Future Training Competition for Young Horses.  Pablo was then placed this past spring with trainer Brenda Boyd in our 2019 Trainer’s Challenge and they took home 6th Overall Highpoint in the competition (including 1st in the Trail/Obstacle class!) Pablo is going well under saddle and is more than ready to find a new home. Brenda says he absolutely loves trails and obstacles. He much prefers to get out on the trail rather than arena work. He is smart and brave. Right now Pablo is 14hh so suitable for a smaller rider, but he will most likely grow more in the next year or so.
