I'm back on looking at horses, and over the last few months, come across a few I might be interested in getting. Just looking for a reliable trail horse.
I've come across Scout, he was born in the year of 1997 and is a rescue.
(Cant seem to get the photos working, so here is his link)
"He won the Foster Home Under Saddle Division of the 2013 Bluebonnet Rescue Horse Training Challenge and was Reserve Grand Champion of the Challenge. His foster home for the Bluebonnet Rescue Horse Training Challenge says that Scout has been such an amazing partner to teach. He is very willing and eager to please. On the ground, he follows his handler around like a dog, and looks to them for security. Scout is at the bottom of the herd order, and has some battle scars due to this. He will not fight, and runs away from the other horses.
Scout has been ridden barefoot, and has very tough feet on any kind of trail. His ideal job would either be a trail riding horse or ranch horse. He has ridden with large groups on the trail, and does very well. Due to Scout’s lack of confidence, the rider needs to be a strong leader with consistency. He rarely spooks on the trail, and does not run off. He has a great walk that covers many miles. Scout enjoys being groomed, eating treats, and hanging out with people. He is very much “in your business” when it is just you and him! Not enough good things can be said about Scout. He is gorgeous, has a great confirmation, and an amazing, loving personality!"
Although, he was adopted out before but was returned because of bucking but his foster home said that he has not bucked once since his stay there, and has been on many trails since.
Just wondering what your opinion may be! Nothing is for certain, and It may be, or may not be, a while until we're ready to adopt a horse.
