Daybreaks Abbey Road (Abbey has been adopted!)

Daybreaks Abbey Road is a very nice registered chestnut American Saddlebred mare who was foaled in 2006. Abbey originally came to MHARF from a 2011 Pine County humane case. In July of 2011 she gave birth to a beautiful filly who we named Penny Lane (who was adopted upon weaning).  Daybreaks Abbey Road is a very pretty chestnut mare with an athletic build and a nice temperament . She is very friendly and extremely interested in people. Abbey was started under saddle several years ago but had some time off. She is now back in training with Anna Hill and we have high hopes of finding her a home soon! You can follow Abbey’s training on her Facebook Page!



Aged mare with delightful personality, loves to be brushed and loved on. Not for riding, but could do light leading pony rides occasionally. Sound for everyday living. Inquire only if you are aware of and willing to support needs of an aging horse. Low in pecking order. Eating well, holds her weight easily. Must be able to separate for grain(pellets, senior, etc. – nutritional support beyond hay) two or more times a day. Should have own area overnight unless kept only with horse with similar nutritional needs.

Crouching Tantrum (update: Tante has been adopted!)

Graduate of the 2014 Trainers Challenge
“Tante” is a 2010 14hh Saddlebred pony cross mare who originally came to MHARF during a 2010 humane case with her mother Mia. Tante successfully competed in the 2014 Trainers’ Challenge. She spent many months with her trainer Francis Nelson after the Challenge. She is currently in training with Tara Perkins at Perquestrian Acres. We wouldn’t quite call her a well broke kid’s horse at this time–but she is well on her way! This is what Francis had to say about her: “Tante is a timid mare with a heart of gold. If she trusts you she will pretty much do anything asked of her. She willingly picks up all her gaits, leg yields, two tracks, has a lovely traverse, turns on the haunches, turns on the forehand, side passes ect. She is good to bathe,clip, and for farrier,vet and loading. She is used to kids running all around her, bikes, dirt bikes, dogs, cats,chickens,pigs and gun noises. I started her over jumps in English tack, and she does basic reining maneuvers. She navigates trail obstacles with ease and has wonderful ground manners. This past summer she took care of my 7 year old daughter. She is very quick, and could use a soft experienced rider, but with the right person she could go a long way. She can be very hormonal around geldings, and slightly herd bound, but settles down nicely. She loves attention and to be cozy in a stall at night, but happy to be out too.”

Amber (Update: Amber has been adopted!)

Amber is a very nice 14.3hh 2010 dun grade quarter horse mare. She originally came to MHARF as a yearling, was adopted, and has now been returned to us because of time restraints for her previous adopters. This beautiful girl had 60 days of professional training in 2014 and since that time has had trail experience as well as trail obstacle experience. During the summer of 2016 Amber competed in the Truhaven 60 Day Rescued Horse Trail Challenge.  Amber is well-trained and she is sensitive to cues–so she needs a rider who has some amber-head-shotexperience.

Aashiloh Barr

Aashiloh Barr has been adopted!

Aashiloh is a 2001 bay gelding who stands approximately 15.3hh. He is registered half-Arab with the IAHA. (He is out of AHR registered MS Shahlana and by IAHA registered MP Allabar.) We were told he was broke to ride but had not been handled or ridden for quite awhile at intake. He went back into training in 2016 with Leanna Giles of Bravehorse Ranch where he has gotten some great experience on trails as seen here!  Suitable for an intermediate to advanced rider. He loves to be bathed, stands well for fly spray, saddling, and mounting. He does not over-react to new things and becomes accustomed very quickly.
