Melody (Melody has been Adopted!)

Melody has been ADOPTED!

Melody is a paint mare and is a recent intake at MHARF. She was foaled in approximately 2011 and stands 15hh. She came to us as an owner surrender but we don’t have a lot of info on her history. She is currently with trainer Sarah Helms of Step Up Horsemanship for a training assessment and refresher. She is broke to ride but we would say she is suitable for an confident intermediate to experienced rider at this time. We want to give Sarah more time to work with her and we will keep updating her info as we learn more about her.

Addi (Addi has been adopted!)

Addi has been adopted!

Addi is a 15.1hh paint mare who was foaled in 2002. She came to MHARF recently because her owner could no longer keep her. She is currently with Anna Hill/Longstocking Stables for a training assessment. This is what her trainer has to say so far: “Loads, leads, ties. Great feet. Sweet as can be on the ground. PERFECT under saddle. Great confidence builder on the trails or in the arena.”  Addi was recently diagnosed with arthritis and had both stifles injected. She will still be an excellent light to medium trail horse but will require maintenance care for her arthritis.


Jaxson (Jaxson has been Adopted!)

Jaxson has been ADOPTED!

Jaxson is a 15.1hh gelding (foaled in approximately 2007) who came to MHARF recently because his owner could no longer keep him. It’s been a few years since he was ridden so he is with Sarah Helms at Step Up Horsemanship for an assessment and refresher training. This is video of Sarah’s first ride in the large indoor. Jaxson is available for adoption through MHARF while he continues his training. We don’t have any info yet on how he is on the trails and we would not consider him appropriate for beginner riders.

Here is what Sarah says about his first assessment ride:
“I rode Jackson the first day in the round pen since I didn’t know much about him so day 2 I brought him into the arena with out lunging him and just hopped on him to see what he knows. He is pretty quiet and easy going, neck reins, has a good stop, w/t/l never offered to buck. He does need some work on standing still. He does have a big stride that’s a little on the fast side but he never felt out of control. He could use a little bit of a tune up but is a really nice big gelding.” Jaxson’s Assessment Ride Video

Hoss (Hoss has been Adopted!)

Hoss has been ADOPTED!

Hoss is a miniature gelding who was foaled in approximately 2005. He was adopted from MHARF as a 4- year- old but has been returned because his adopter could no longer keep him.  Like all minis, Hoss should be kept mostly on a dry lot and off of lush pasture. Hoss will need diligent regular farrier care to keep his hooves in shape.
