Lester is a very nice 2009 bay pony mule gelding who stands 12.2hh. He is not broke to ride but he has good ground manners. Lester originally came in during the 2011 “Fillmore 55” humane case. He had major trust issues at intake but thank you to trainer Deb Anderson he is now very friendly and well-behaved!
UPDATE: 03/31/19: Raven has been ADOPTED!
Raven is a 15.3hh black mare who was foaled in 2002. She is 1/2 Oldenburg, 1/4 Trakehner, and 1/4 Arabian. Raven came to us several years ago in a humane case. She went into training at that time but she developed some rearing issues under saddle that we now feel were probably due to being rushed in her training. We did then adopt her out as a companion horse but her companion sadly had to be put down recently so she was returned to us. Raven is a very nice mare with a sweet temperament. We felt that we wanted to give her another chance with a trainer who would be slow and patient with her. We sent her to Marirose Berner of MJB Horse Training and she is now going under saddle once again and doing very well! You can follow Raven’s training with Marirose on Raven’s Facebook Page. Raven is suitable at this time for an advanced rider .
Captain is a pony cross (most likely with some draft) who was recently returned to MHARF because his original adopter could not keep him. He is in his late teens and stands 13.2hh. He is broke to ride but it has been many years so he will need to have an assessment before we know what level rider he is suitable for.
Update: Cat has been Adopted!
Cat (formerly known as Swamp Cat) is a quarter pony gelding who stands approximately 13.2hh and is in his late teens. He was recently returned to MHARF because his adopter could no longer keep him. He’s a nice large pony and is broke to ride. He is kid-friendly! Cat us currently in training at Lanoux Stables in Stillwater, MN.
