Adoptable Horses Still Looking for Their Forever Homes...
Unfortunately, "Red" came in with a heartbreaking story and even worse reputation. In fact, he was labeled as a "Killer Horse" and before even having encountered this horse, fear was instilled in others because of this misconception. Even with this pre-conceived notion, when "Red" walked off the trailer the only emotion that was revealed was, fear. It was said that he would tear apart any stall put into, having realized these notions were simply fear-based, he was placed in a stall calmly and stood there quivering as if waiting for abuse. Since arrival, "Red" has been treated with kindness and respect and in return he has presented use with the most, honest and giving horse a human could ask for. He is a 10 year old Thoroughbred gelding standing 17.0 hands with movement full of grace and power. He would make a very nice dressage prospect. He has been ridden by beginner, youth and professional riders under English tack. He has received novice dressage training, and for adopters interested in this discipline we can put you in contact with this trainer. We as that due to Red's heartfelt past, serious inquiries that will give him the forever home he deserves only, please.
Sawyer arrived at Pure Thoughts, along with Flynne (see below), from a sever abuse case. Seeing as these two horses have come from such horrible neglect, their gratitude and peaceful nature are truly remarkable. Sawyer is a 15 year old Quarter Horse chestnut gelding, he stands approximately 15.0 hands.
Since his arrival he has been sweet and loving, even considering his unfortunate past he has shown incredible trust for humans. He has been ridden primarily under a Western saddle and along trails, which he thorughly enjoys. We have found out that he is familiar with a barrel pattern for Western games, and neck reins as well. He also has no problem working under English tack and taking care of beginner riders/children. As you can see in the photos below, Sawyer arrived in extremely poor condition, but has come a long way in his physical and mental appearance. Now, he is a healthy and happy boy!
arrived along with Sawyer (See Sawyers’ Bio HERE), from a severe abuse case in
which every rib and bone were revealed. She is similar to Sawyer, whereas you
would not suspect such a heartbreaking past by their trusting and serene
nature. This mare hides nothing and is extremely honest, from the second you
meet her you will feel her sincerity in everything she does. Her past has not
hindered her playful and loving self. She
is a 4 year old green Paint pony with a big heart and graceful movement. She
has been started under the English tack and is currently learning to find her
balance and suppleness under saddle. She has welcomed each new experience with
curiosity and courage. Although green, this filly has a promising future and
with consistent work and training she will be a very talented hunter pony for a
young rider. Please check our blog for her weekly training updates.
Run Gima Run
“Gima” arrived here from Ohio where she was kept in a large pasture for approximately one year, after having completed her final race. This time off gave her body rest and cleared her mind for her future.
She is a 10 year old thoroughbred mare, with an
athletic build and strong drive. She enjoys the Western tack and going on
trails. She has not had any formal Western Gaming or Western Pleasure training, her stocky frame and sturdy hind end would make her a wonderful prospect
for either or, even a working cow pony. She also has potential in
other English disciplines. This mare is very athletic and ready to work! An
intermediate rider is recommended.
“Koda” arrived at the farm when she
was only a few months old malnourished and in awful condition. This treatment
early on in her life left her fearful and untrusting of humans, to the extent
she would quiver at a gentle touch. Fortunately, with constant care, love and
desensitizing she has blossomed into a confident flashy pony. Koda is approximately 3 years old
standing roughly at 14.1 hands. This filly’s exquisite movement and
conformation draws attention from every spectrum. Karma was granted for this
little girl because she now stands one of the most confident, intelligent,
stunning horses to walk through this rescue. Currently, her training includes
natural horsemanship training consisting of round pen and lounge-line work,
ponying off older/experienced horses and ground work. She will be started under
saddle in the next couple weeks, please check our blog for her training
Light the Night
"Bella" is a 17 year old thoroughbred mare standing
at 17.0 hands with a big heart. She is a seasoned hunter who has had great
success in her past. It is recommended Bella find a home
with a rider that is looking to have fun, work on trails and not push her past
her limits. Bella is completely sound, but this girl has accomplished her fair
share of work in her past with a strong racing and hunter jumper career, so we
would like this sweet girl to find her forever home and have some fun…after
all, she deserves it!
Finally Unbridled is an 8 year old thoroughbred
mare standing approximately 15.3 hands, having completed her last race on
(date). This mare is athletic, confident and intelligent. She was receiving
some hunter jumper training for a few months, but in the past year this girl
has been stacking her resume with a few different disciplines. Having been
taken over some cross rails ranging from 2’-3’ which she jumps with complete
ease and solid form. We have never pushed her over anything higher or more difficult,
but with guidance this horse would jump to the moon and back. She would make a really
talented jumper prospect. Some of the young riders have even played stick and
ball on her and she had no hesitation with the mallet or ball. Her agility and
speed would make her a good youth polo prospect, as well. This mare requires a
light hand and confident rider, as she has a lot to give and is major
powerhouse. She has primarily been ridden by youth riders and seems to enjoy
the spirit they carry. Her athleticism and intelligent nature will make her
successful in anything her future may hold. We recommend an intermediate rider.
Arizona arrived here thru the Nurse Mare Foal
Program, having been birthed 2012. Somehow, Arizona went unnoticed in a pasture
in Kentucky for a year before being discovered. Even with the lack of care in
her first year, she was in relatively good condition and is very trusting
towards humans. In fact, having met this girl you would never know her story
was so neglectful. She is a Quarter Horse, approximately 1/2 years old with a
playful and sweet personality. Arizona has round pen training sessions and
works under a natural horsemanship program. However, if we’re honest she spends
most of her time playing with her friends and enjoying her youthful stage…as
she missed out of this part of her life. She would make a great Western or
