I thought I'd spotlight some horses that are sitting at rescues. I don't know anything about the rescues except what is posted on their websites. I also, don't know if the rescue still has the horse that I have posted, only that it is still posted. So I'll just post a photo of the horse and the link in which I found it. That way if anyone is looking for a horse maybe I can help find a rescue horse a home and clear the way for more to be rescued. My friend sends me a link a day because she loves looking. I'll try and post all the ones that have the potential to be riding horses or are riding horses.
Isn't he beautiful?
Drew is easy to lead and is quiet for grooming. Sometimes he gets excited in the stall if other horses are walking by, but calms quickly. We do not have any information about his past experiences or training, but we do know that he is sound. He has had a rider on him, but will need more time under saddle and would require an advanced rider. He is currently turned out with other geldings, as he likes mares a little too much. Adoption Fees range from $50.00 to $500.00!
Color Me Mocha

Just cause he's a Haflinger!
KRIS KRINGLE ADOPTION DONATION $550.00 Kris Kringle is a 10 year old Haflinger gelding that has been abused by his previous owners. A young child was taught to beat him until he did what she wanted. But with what he has been through he is still a love bug just scared at times if he doesn't know you. He has been broke to ride and drive, but hasn't been for about 4 years. We are working with him to get him going again. He thinks he is going to be hit every time you lift your hand. He will stand for hours now and let us brush him and comb out his mane. He stands for the farrier, is up to date on shots and worming and will load in a stock trailer with no problems. He is scared of a two horse trailer because they beat him to get him into one. He is one pretty boy. We were told he is registered but have not seen the papers. He needs that special someone that will love him and treat him with a gentle hand.

Adopted from HHRF in 2005, Aramus is a reg. Friesian Sports Horse. His sire is a Friesian and his Dam is a Spanish Mustang. Aramus is 17 hands and 10 yrs old. This description was written by his current owner. Requires experienced rider, has over 90 days of training, been on several trail rides. Needs constant reminders
that scary things won't eat him!. Constant exposure to tarps, bikes, etc or he spooks if he has not seen one in a few weeks even though he has been exposed to hoards of de-sensitizing things, if he is not exposed
and ridden continuous he forgets and reverts to flight mode when riding him.
He is a complete ham on the ground, loves to be loved, plays with your pony tail zipper on your coat etc. follows you everywhere always looking for treats, first one at the gate. Herd leader which is why I feel he is on higher alert when being ridden than the other horses, he feels the need to always be on the look out to protect
and warn the herd?
Updated on 5-way, West Nile, Potomac Horse Fever / Rabies. wormed and trimmed. Will need floated in about a month. Beautiful animal. Should definitely be placed with a horse savvy adoptee, not as skittish or spooky in an arena or pasture those are his safety zones. Aramus is being adopted from his current home but the adoption application and approval of adoption is done by Hog Heaven Rescue Farm.
Gotta love those Drafts!
Caramel is a 17-year-old 15'2 hh Belgian/Quarter horse cross mare rescued from a from a closing Premarin farm. In her previous home Caramel was never given the opportunity to become a great horse, and suffered from years of neglect. Having never met a nice, gentle person before coming to H.O.R.S.E. of CT she was fearful of many things. Years later Caramel has come a long way she can confidently carry a person while being hand-walked. With a patient, confident, and gentle person Caramel can become a quiet trail horse.
