Hemi is a very sweet 17 yr old Spotted Saddlebred gelding who stands 15.2 hh. He is certainly a "people horse" and charms everyone with his good looks and personality. Hemi has recently been diagnosed with lordosis (sway-back), which is likely genetic due to his breed. Therefore, no riding due to his discomfort. In the past he had a small beign tumor removed from his 3rd eye lid ; the eyelid is completely healed with no more issues. He is barefoot and great with the farrier. He cross ties and ties.
Freija is in training. She is a magnificent 14.2 hh, QH type sorrel mare, age 16 yrs. She has been retired for 2 yrs. Freija will be the best companion horse for other equines. She loads easily, loves to be groomed, good for the vet and the farrier.

Meet Blue! Blue is a beautiful 2 yo quarter horse cross filly that should mature to be approx. 15.1+/- hands. She is incredibly sweet and loves attention. She leads well, stands for the farrier and vet, ground ties, loads and LOVES to be groomed. Blue does well with 1 horse or in small herd (will likely be near the bottom of pecking order but does hold her own). Blue is a quick learner. Her foster owner is currently working on standing on crossties and just started on clipping.
Gorgeous Blue Blaze needs a home who will continue with her training; someone who will be fair and consistent preferably with natural horsemanship skills; for now ground training only, no riding until age 3 yrs. She is current on all vaccines and coggins.
Blue came into USERL care in 2018. She had a body condition score of 1. Her rehabilitation was months of small meals five times a day. She also had severe rain rot with severe sun burn on top of the rain rot. Both required special treatment and limited exposure to the sun. Her rehab required months of a special diet and veterinary care, however, we are pleased to announce that she is now fully rehabbed and ready for her special family! Blue has always been a very sweet and agreeable filly. She would leave her hay to come over for attention and neck scratches during her time at the rehab barn.

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.
Velvet and Cedar have been in USERL care since December 2018 and are all most completely rehabbed. Please consider making a paypal donation for their feed, hay, trims and vet bills.

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 since 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 mwere 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.
