Preserving an American tradition... One equine at a time
Meet Opie, Our Featured Equine
Opie was part of a large neglect case. He was removed in a joint effort between BEHS and law enforcement and then placed with BEHS by the courts. When Opie arrived at BEHS, he had never been handled by humans. His foster home worked to win his trust and then worked to get him halter broke. In the spring of 2012, he spent time with a trainer and was started under saddle. Opie was eager to please and a quick learner, and he progressed quickly through training. In July, he was adopted along with Blackie to be a teenager’s first horse. They were both returned three years later when the family lost interest in horses.
