Cheyenne

Cheyenne is nice older mare came to MHARF recently at request of social services because her elderly owner could no longer care for her. She is blind in one eye. We don’t know yet if she is broke to ride (although it is unlikely) and hope to have a training assessment done on her by spring.

Sequoia (Student of the 2019 Trainer’s Challenge)

Sequoia came to MHARF in late fall of 2018 of at the request of Stearns County social services because her elderly owner could no longer care for her. She has had little handling in the past and came in with some trust issues but she is coming around nicely. She is curious and definitely wants to be friendly. Sequoia was foaled in approximately 2010 and stands 14.2hh. We don’t know her breeding but she is a stock-type horse.  She is not broke to ride and has been placed with trainer TJ Clibborn for our 2019 Trainer’s Challenge. She will spend the spring and summer in training and will compete in the Challenge on Sept. 7th.

Alice (Student of the 2019 Promise of the Future Competition)

Alice is a beautiful sorrel weanling filly who was born on 08/17/18. Her mother Nutmeg came to MHARF in a December 2017 humane case. Nutmeg is a stock-type mare, probably quarter horse, and we believe Alice’s sire is an Arabian. Alice is a big, healthy and energetic filly with a lot of chrome! She has now been weaned and is competing with trainer Deb Anderson in our 2019 Promise of the Future Training Competition. She will be available for adoption at the event on September 7th. To find out more about how to apply to adopt Alice at the POF, visit our Adopting a Trainer’s Challenge Horse page. You can follow Deb and Alice’s progress throughout the spring and summer on Alice’s Facebook Page!

Sochi

Sochi is a 2006 POA (Shetland Pony x Appaloosa) mare who stands approximately 13hh. She originally came to MHARF from a February 2014 Wadena County humane case. Sochi was pregnant at intake and her colt Ivan was born in May of 2014. She was adopted but her adopter now regretfully had to return her. Sochi is broke to ride and this past spring has had some refresher training, including a clinic and some trail riding. She is not suitable for a beginner but would be great for a confident youth or small adult. She is also blind in one eye due to an old injury

Delia (Student of the 2019 Trainer’s Challenge)

This chestnut mare came to us from a late-April 2018 Brown County humane case. Her estimated date of birth is 2010 and she stands approximately 14.2hh. We have DNA confirmation from the Canadian Morgan Horse Association (thank you to the American Morgan Horse Association for their assistance on this!) that she is a purebred Morgan. Her sire is  Sable Knight Kursier and her dam is Krila’s Eagle Feather.  This mare is not registered but she is registerable. All of her vet work has been completed, including dental and preg-check (not in foal). She is now at a decent weight and is ready to find a new home. She’s very pretty and a nice mover. She is not broke to ride to so she has been placed with trainer Gretchen Kapeller for our 2019 Trainer’s Challenge. She will spend the spring and summer in training and will compete in the Challenge on Sept. 7th.
