OUR SHORTY: 2004 OTTB Thoroughbred Gelding needing Sponsoring

Shorty was nominated to the 2015 Retired Racehorse Project in Kentucky, but never made it due to a stifle issue.  He is a gorgeous guy, 16.0 hands tall.  He is rideable and loves to work.  He can be maintained with veterinary care and is serviceably sound.  We have shown him in Western Dressage and he has done well.  His unsoundness issue, although very manageable, makes adopting him out difficult at best.  We have moved him into our Sanctuary Program, where he will be an integral part of Team Hope for Horses.

LeeLeeAnna – 2000 OTTB Thoroughbred mare, well schooled

LeeLeeAnna is a Jewel, so that’s what we call her! Jewel is 15.2 hands tall.  She came here as a neglect case, severely under weight and needing some TLC.  Once we had her up to condition, we started riding her to see what she knows, and she knows a lot!  She is definitely rusty but is very willing and loves people.  She is sound and ready for her new human.

This beautiful girl is sound and a gorgeous mover.  She is athletic, smart and spunky. She arrived at the KISS Horse Center borderline abused and has made great progress in overcoming her past, showing tremendous ability. Smartie is not ready for adoption as she is currently undergoing behavior modification training to improve her ground manners and trust of humans, but needs a sponsor in order to continue with her rehabilitation and reach what we know is amazing potential!

 Trista is a thoroughbred mare, black or dark bay. She is 16+ hands. She is off the track and very rideable. She has an old injury to her knee that will limit her to a non-show, non-jumping career. However, she is a nice mover and very willing. She has gone on trail rides around the ranch and loves to work.

This gorgeous half brother of California Chrome is back after an injury on the track, but due to complications from his injuries Ray is unlikely to be adoptable. Ray has a super quiet mind and is very willing and eager to work. A nice horse to work around – a real people horse. Ray needs  a sponsor.

HOPE (Proud Nature) – Sanctuary – Looking for a Sponsor

Hope is a sensitive soul and needs a soft quiet hand, we have chosen to put her in our Sanctuary Program and use her as a lesson horse.  She has had some bad handling in the past (evidenced in a crimped ear cartilage- not ears pinned look) so sending her out to possibly not be understood and be mishandled again, is not an option!
