Sugar and Spice and everything nice!

Sugar is our Standardbred Christmas pony! When Sugar arrived at the Rescue, she was underweight and anxious/shy of humans.  With patience and time from our volunteers, Sugar has gained weight and slowly learned to trust.  She willingly lets our volunteers approach her in the pasture and loves a good neck rub! Last weekend was Sugar’s first day under saddle and she did great!  She is now available for adoption!

Spice is our 11 year old Quarter Horse! When Spice came to us we had very little information on her and didnt know if she had ever been under saddle previously. We have now had her under saddle twice and the determination is that she is still very green. We have worked with Scott Purdum at Advantage Horsemanship to come up with a training plan to prepare her for her adoptive home.

Spice handles very well on the ground with the exception of wanting to pick up her feet for grooming and the farrier. Before she can be made available for adoption, she will need to be able to do the basic things. Our volunteer team continues to work with her on these items.

Spice is looking for sponsors for her training. If you are interested in being her sponsor, please click the links below.
