Update 03/08/21: Tana has been ADOPTED!
Tana (also known as Princess Tana) is a 2004 15.1hh dark chestnut Tennessee Walking Horse mare who originally came to MHARF in 2008. She competed in our 2009 Trainer’s Challenge with trainer Mitch Carson and was adopted at the event. Sadly, her adopter can no longer keep her and we are looking for new placement. Tana has received excellent care and training over the years. This is what her previous adopter has to say about her: “Tana is a major sweetie, she is super gentle and kind with both adults and children, is a pleasure for all of the staff at the barn where she is, gets along well with other horses, and is not pushy at all. While we used to do jumping and eventing, she has had a history of early onset arthritis (in her hocks which she no longer needs injections for) as well as laminitis. We switched to just dressage and pleasure riding. She competed consistently at first level scoring in the high sixties. We were going to hit second level but I chose to leave the show circuit as I find the most joy just being with her and riding for fun. Tana is one of the most amazing horses.”
Tana is looking for a home where her diet will be managed to keep her from having a relapse of laminitis (dry lot, no lush pasture), regular competent farrier care, and plenty of exercise without strenuous work like jumping.
