Korea Norsk (Bailey)

This beautiful bay mare is a registered National Showhorse (Arab x Saddlebred) but we do not have her papers . Her registered name is Korea Norsk but her barn name is Bailey. She was foaled in 1998 and stands approximately 15.2hh.  Bailey came to MHARF during a July 2016 Crow Wing County humane case in which she was rescued from flood waters. She came in with Willa, who we believe is her daughter. She was broke to ride as a younger horse and we sent her to refresher training with Dustin Freiheit in 2017. He says she is a very nice mare and would make a great trail horse for a rider who is intermediate to advanced. She has not been ridden yet this year so will require a little refresher training.



Angel is a 1999 14.1hh black and white pinto mare (Saddlebred/Arab/Welsh). She was originally surrendered to MHARF several years ago because she had an umbilical hernia her owner did not want to have repaired due to the cost. We took her in and paid for the surgery and then sent her into training when she was healed up. Angel has been adopted twice but has been returned both times due to no fault of her own. She is a nice mare with good ground manners. She is good for the vet and farrier and is an easy keeper. She is broke to ride and is currently back in training with Marirose Berner.  You can see Marirose’s updates on Angel’s Facebook page.

Because Angel has been moved around so much in her life, it is very important that her next home hopefully be a “forever” home!




Tater Chip

Tater Chip is a very handsome 2004 12hh bay pinto pony gelding. He spent the summer of 2014 in training and competed in the Diamond in the Rough Challenge. He has had a lot of ground work, is broke to drive and is doing very well. He does need a handler who is experienced in driving. His trainer says he could be a major competitor in either carriage driving events or open pleasure driving.


Marin is a beautiful bay medium-pony-size hackney pony mare who came to us from the “Fillmore 55” humane case. She was foaled in approximately 2001. Marin is broke to drive and has that great snappy hackney pony trot as you can see from her photo. Marin would not be suitable for children at this point as she has a lot of “go” and was not handled as much or as kindly as she should have been in the past.



Dudley was foaled in 2001, and is a 15.3hh bay appendix quarter horse gelding (registered name North Sea Dancer). We were called out to a farm to pick up Dudley and the mare who was his pasture mate. The mare was unfortunately suffering from chronic medical and lameness issues that were beyond treatment. She was down and suffering so we elected to humanely euthanize her on the property (thank you to Dr. Frederickson of Sunrise Equine Veterinary Services for meeting us out there… and giving this mare immediate relief from her pain and suffering). We want to thank the owner of these horses for doing the right thing in calling us and surrendering them to us. She had recently received the horses after the original owner passed away and, not being a horse owner previously, did not have the knowledge or ability to care for them. Dudley had little handling at intake and had some pretty big trust issues. He spent the  summer with trainers Alyssa Bates and Kayla Michael and competed successfully in our 2016 Trainer’s Challenge of the Unwanted Horse. Dudley has a great solid training foundation under saddle thanks to Kayla and Alyssa. He then went to Wrisky Ranch in Prescott, WI,  where he continued his training while in foster care (thank you to everyone at Wrisky Ranch!) As of February 2018 Dudley was back in Minnesota and continuing his training with Marirose Berner of MJB Horse Training. He was adopted but has now been returned because his adopter moved out of state and could not take him along. This big, sweet gelding would love to find his very own person! He is suitable for an confident intermediate to experienced rider.
