Tana (Tana has been Adopted!)

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.

Billy (Mister Fancy Skipper) Has Been Adopted

Update: Billy has been ADOPTED

Billy (registered APHA Mister Fancy Skipper) is a 15.1hh, 2003 paint gelding who is well broke to ride. He came into our program because his owner could no longer keep him. He has trail experience but is buddy/barn-sour when going out a lone. He is currently with trainer Anna Hill of Longstocking Stables for training assessment and refresher (where she is working on this issue). He does have a very mild case of heaves right now for which he is receiving treatment. Anna reports that he is in the middle of the herd as far as dominance and is currently out with both mares and geldings. He has a really nice temperament. You can see a video of him on the Longstocking Stables page.

Quincy (Quincy has been Adopted!)

Quincy has been adopted!

Quincy  is a grayed-out pinto draft gelding in is mid-teens (possible a Shire or Gypsy cross) who came to us from a recent Stearns County humane case. He leads and loads okay but still has some trust issues and is harder to catch. He is being treated for scratches.


Tillis has been ADOPTED!

Tillie is a sorrel grade quarter horse mare who was foaled in approximately 2005 and stands approximately 15hh. She is broke to ride but she has been diagnosed with navicular syndrome. She currently requires front shoes. She is suitable for light trail riding and is currently in training with Anna Hill. You can see videos of Tillie on Anna’s training page Longstocking Stables.



Wilbur is a POA gelding who was foaled in approximately 2012 and stands approximately 14.2hh. He is broke to ride but it has been over a year since he has been ridden–so will need some refresher work. Should be suitable for advanced beginner working w/trainer or intermediate rider. Wilbur is a smart horse and will benefit from regular work. He has a lot of potential.
