Captain came to Hope in July 2019. He was a stallion locked in a horse trailer because his owners could not contain him safely. After being castrated, we have found him to be extremely head shy, yet gentle with humans. He has been ridden in the past but we do not know the history.
Grace is a beautiful, registered little Paso Fino mare. She was found starving in Haywood County with a pasture mate who has since passed away. She has dropped rear fetlocks which are not causing her any lameness issues, but could at some point. She is an easy keeper in the summer and a more difficult in the winter to keep weight on. She is super sweet, yet guarded with her affection.
BREED: Paso Fino
Skye is a three years young Paint Horse mare. She has been with Hope for Horses since she was born and spent her first few years at a lovely foster home. Skye came into the training facility this winter and has spent a few months growing and learning to be a well behaved kid. She has just recently gone under saddle and has taken to the process nicely. Due to her age we are taking her training slowly and in stride. Skye is going to make a lovely partner for someone very soon. She is a beautiful, friendly and curious girl. We will continue to introduce her to the world of being a good citizen and keep you all posted on her progress!
Little man Brody has been with Hope for Horses for a few years, he came in from a large herd of feral, untouched ponies. He is a young, welsh cross pony, that is very green and super cute! Many of these ponies are now adopted out and in the world toting kids around! We hope that that will be in Brody’s near future. He spent a good bit of time out on a large farm enjoying the good life eating grass, hanging with sheep and growing. He is now back at the training facility learning to be a good citizen. Within the next two months Brody should be well on his way to carrying his (little) rider and ready to explore the world! Please stay tuned for Brody’s progress!
Mystic is a 26-year-old Arabian cross pony mare. She has arthritis in her left front but gets along well on it with Prevecox. She is super cute and friendly.
BREED: Arabian Cross
Dude has arthritic stifle, so he is unable to be ridden and must be on senior food and soaked alfalfa pellets. He does not get along with cows and is sometimes hard to halter, but after haltered, he behaves well. He likes to be groomed, but lacks patience, so don't go too slow. Dude will be the perfect companion to the right home with some experience.
BREED: Spotted Draft Cross
AGE: Appx 25
