GEORGE (CL)

GEORGE (CL)

Category: Non-Riding Companion
Age: 22
Gender: Gelding

Breed: Quarter Horse

Bio: We are very sad to announce that George will be retiring from the programs at Hearts & Horses. Prior to joining the herd, George had a very successful competitive, but physically demanding, career as a cutting horse. As he has aged he has been experiencing periods of lameness that over the past year have not responded sufficiently to treatment to allow him to comfortably continue to serve our participants. We are beginning the careful search to find that perfect home for George, an amazing gelding who has been a favorite here at Hearts & Horses since 2016. George's ideal home is one with a space large enough to live without too much fresh grass. He needs the company of geldings rather than mares. George is retiring from Hearts & Horses to become a companion horse, however he would LOVE to be able to continue to do an occasional pony ride at the walk with a young child from time to time. If you are interested in George, please submit a "Letter of Interest" to our Director of Equine Services, which should contain information about the following items: - your experience with horses - what George's job would be - a description of the living situation available for him (turn out, quality of feed, shelter and general care) - your ability to meet, maintain and provide care in case of a veterinary emergency Send your Letter of Interest to Liz de Kock - liz@heartsandhorses.org. If you have any questions, you can also call Liz at (970) 663-4200 x 304 Thank You!

RIO (CL)

RIO (CL)

Category: Non-Riding Companion
Age: 12
Gender: Gelding

Breed: Foxtrotter

Bio: Rio is a 12 yo Missouri Foxtrotter who is the sweetest boy ever and can be a companion horse only. I bought him last year from a seller in New Mexico to be my trail horse and I did not get a PPE so I have no one to blame but myself. He was diagnosed with EPM shortly after I got him and he was treated with very expensive meds. When he recovered I started riding him and he went lame quickly. He was diagnosed with severe arthritis in the RF fetlock probably due to a past injury and has had a tendon injury also in the past so he is totally unrideable. I think he was probably used and abused but has the cutest personality and a friend describes him as a horse you just want to hug! I've been doing some clicker training with him and he loves it! I board my horses and it is expensive for me to keep him as a companion as I now need to buy another trail horse to replace him so I would love to find him a forever home on someone's horse property where he can just be a horse and be loved on. I would do a home check and require references because he has been through a lot. He is located in Canon City.

SOPHIE (CL)

SOPHIE (CL)

Category: Riding
Age: 11
Gender: Mare

Breed: Quarter Horse

Bio: This 11 year old registered mare is a sweetheart that has been started. Over time we have seen swelling above her back hooves which the vet said is from mal-nutrition when she was young. As long as we keep her trimmed on a regular basis she is fine and I believe would be ok with light riding if she is finished but I cannot guarantee. She is very sweet, halter broke, accustom to the saddle, ties well, stands well for farrier, in good health, up to date on vaccines. I have been on her many times and was ready to start moving out with her and I got injured so she had no further work for the last 5 years. $800
