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!
