2nd Annual Midwest Rescue Horse Trainer’s Challenge-1
By: Triple Crown Intern – Alex Porter
Meet The Horses From The Midwest Horse Welfare Foundation!
Elsie Doll is a 19-year-old, Pintabian mare that stands at 14.1 hands. While she found herself in a bad situation and suffered from severe neglect, she bounced back 100% and is ready to find her person. Elsie is a strikingly beautiful horse with loads of potential and looking forward to showing everyone that age is just a number, and she’s got loads of great years ahead of her.
Horses That Were Part of The ‘Lucky 13’ Herd
These horses came to MHWF as part of a herd of 13 horses who found themselves needing a place to go. Now 5 of those horses are participating in this year’s Midwest Rescue Horse Trainer Challenge!
Riley is a mellow, sweet and beautiful 7-year-old gelding standing around 14.3 hands. Riley had no training and minimal handling in his life, making this a great opportunity for Riley to find a forever home. The beautiful gray QH mare named Faith that was adopted by her trainer, Anna, in 2018 is Riley’s dam. Riley has been learning the basics of halter training and being handled while in foster care.
Serenity (Rennie) is a beautifully built 7-year-old mare standing around 15 hands. Serenity has had no training and very minimal handling in her life. She has learned the basics of halter training and being handled, and this is the perfect opportunity to help Serenity find a great home. Serenity’s dam is an AQHA mare and sire is Paint/Arabian, so Serenity is about 1/4 Arabian but looks much like a Quarter Horse. This gorgeous girl is full of potential!
Hope is a 17-year-old, 14.2 hand Pintabian mare. Hope has remained at MHWF since June 2018 where she has been getting her regular veterinary and farrier care, learned about halter training and the basics. Hope is well adjusted, sound, healthy and ready and willing to begin training.
Glory is a 14-year-old Paint mare who stands at about 15 hands. Glory was basically unhandled when she had arrived and now that she has learned the basics of being handled, leading, and being good for the vet and farrier, she is ready for the next step and will make someone a fantastic riding partner. Glory is pretty laid back about everything and is ready to find a great home.
Alex is a super sweet and ultra handsome 11-year-old gelding standing around 14.3 hands. Alex is a Paint/Arab cross and built like a small-ish tank. Willow, the beautiful Paint mare who was trained by Anna and then adopted out through MHWF, is Alex’s dam. Alex had no training and minimal handling in his life, and the Trainer’s Challenge is the perfect opportunity to find his forever home.
