Age:  5 years old

Height: 14hh

Sex: Gelding

Color: Bay

Status: Available for Adoption

Argo is a 6 year old Galaceno cross(Spanish breed).  He is a very sweet natured horse. He has been in training with me for 5 months. He started out with barely any ground skills to being a solid Parelli level 2 in his ground skills and Freestyle riding. He is very playful and a huge lover boy. Loves cuddles! He is naturally a confident horse. LBE - medium spirit. Confident with people, obstacles, other horses and his environment. Not herd bound, loves people. Ties well. Trailer loads. Stands for farrier. Doing great on the trails. This horse is so talented. Does flying lead changes all on his own in the pasture. He also really loves to jump. He would make a great hunter pony for a youth or small adult. Would also make someone a fantastic trail mount or just an all-round Parelli partner. Likes to go
and likes to whoa and he is super smooth to ride, at all gaits. I would love to see this horse 
go to a Parelli student who is progressive and dedicated to never-ending self-improvement. He deserves no less and would make someone very happy. I will release him to be eligible for adoption on January 1st. At this time his adoption fee will be $1000 which includes a required 3 private lessons with me(1-Star licensed Parelli Professional) to whoever adopts him. If he stays with me longer than a month after January, his fee

will increase with further development. I’m not in a hurry to let him go. I want to find

him his perfect life partner. Doesn’t every horse deserve that? Please see attached

video of his current ground skills. Riding video is coming soon.

Skye is ready for adoption! Skye is an 8 year old appaloosa/walking horse mare. She has been in natural horsemanship training with Kristen Hunnicutt sinc the beginning of May, this year and most of the riding she has done with her has been on trails. In total, she's spent 65 hours with Skye both on the ground and riding in last 2 1/2 months. Skye is very fun to work with and she has a sweet “horse-anality.” Her impulsion is great and she LOVES the trails. Her natural gaits are walk, trot, canter, but she also has great potential to do a lovely smooth trail gait as well. She hasn’t shown that she would be very spooky but she doesn’t like to be alone, she is great to ride in a group. Her trainer has also done a lot of work with her to build her confidence in the horse trailer. She hasn’t had an easy time with it, but she has made some fantastic progress. Even with all the work done, Skye would still be considered a green horse at this point and will need at least an intermediate rider who is confident with horses, as she can be a bit pushy at times.  It would also be good to see her go to someone who has some experience with ground work so that she can continue to have success loading and unloading form the horse trailer safely.

Her trainer has also been rehabbing her feet through frequent trimming and a specific diet regimen. Skye came into care with bad cracks in her hoof walls that were flaring out and getting really flat. She has been on a hoof supplement with biotin (Remission) as well as no grass or grain to eliminate unnecessary sugars in the diet which can cause founder. Her feet are really coming along great now and most of the cracks are gone but she will need continued care to finish out the regrowth process. Skye should be a fantastic
barefoot horse once she is fully recovered. Right now,
she is being ridden barefoot on all of the trails with no
issues. However, if she were to be ridden on rocks, she
would need hoof boots for support (at least for the
front feet). She will also need to be on limited grass time
to avoid founder in the future. Skye is a super easy
keeper. She’s doing great on hay alone and a handful
of alfalfa per day to mix her supplement in. If you are
interested in adopting Skye please review our
Adoption policies and contact us using the information
on those pages.

Freija is 14yr sorrel mare, 14hh with awesome ground manners. She is comfortable with people and stands quietly to be groomed. Freija lounges well at the walk and trot. She is reluctant to canter; therefore has only ridden at the walk/trot. She prefers light aids: both leg and hand. In the beginning Freija would not stay consistent in the trot but now she is starting to maintain the tempo in the trot for longer periods. Her trot is a nice English trot-forward but not too quick.  Freija will need a confident, fair and consistent person to continue on with her journey. This awesome girl is currently being ridden in a treeless saddle. Freija ties, is good with the farrier, the vet and is current on vaccines and coggins.  In the past she had an issue with sarcoids but has been sarcoid free for over 4 yrs.
Adoption Fee: $300 but will go up with additional training
