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.

Annie (Annie has been ADOPTED!)

Annie has been ADOPTED!

Annie is a 2010 14hh Saddlebred pony cross mare who originally came to MHARF during a 2010 humane case with her mother Mia. Annie successfully competed in the 2014 Trainers’ Challenge with trainer Francis Nelson. She was adopted but has now been returned because her adopter could no longer keep her. She is currently with trainer Sarah Lemke for an assessment and refresher training. You can see videos of Annie under saddle on Sarah’s Facebook page Step Up Horsemanship. Annie is an energetic mare who is suitable for an intermediate rider (or a confident advanced beginner working with a trainer).


Black Foot (Blackfoot has been adopted!)

Graduate of the 2016 Trainer’s Challenge:
This nice appaloosa mare was foaled in 2007 and stands 14.3hh. She is registerable. She’s a gentle mare and very smart.  She competed in our 2016 Trainers’ Challenge (with trainer Ashlynn Rechtiene). She was adopted but is now coming back to us because her adopter sadly cannot keep her. She is well trained but she does require a rider with some experience and confidence as she gets confidence from her rider. She has done mainly trail riding. She loads and trailers well, knows all her cues, direct reins, moves off of pressure, rides bareback or saddle, w/t/c. She can be a little buddy sour in the arena if another horse leaves the arena and she is left alone, also gets a little antsy when tied but does much better if she has a hay net to munch on while tied. She also requires protection from the sun due to her pink skin.



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.
