About AngelasStormy

AngelasStormy was surrendered when her owners could not care for her.

History

Nothing is known of AngelsStormy’s history before she came to Bluebonnet.

Health / Lameness

AngelasStormy’s neck is stiff to the right, so it appears she likely has some arthritis in her neck.  It doesn’t seem to bother her, though. and she has no other known health or lameness problems.

Other

AngelasStormy will be competing in hand in the Non-Pro In Hand division of the Bluebonnet Rescue Horse Training Challenge with non-pro Makayla Chapman.  She will be available for adoption starting on October 19, 2019 at the Challenge competition during the Bluebonnet Horse Expo in Taylor, Texas.

You can follow their progress on their Facebook page.

Evaluation and Training

AngelasStomry has recovered from neglect and is now being worked with on the ground by a youth handler.  It seems like she’s had good handling in her life.  She stands tied, stands for grooming, and is good with having her hooves handled.  She also longes.  She’s been learning to navigate trail obstacles in hand and is doing well! 

She’s been evaluated under saddle by a trainer.  She stood well for mounting and the trainer says she neck reins extremely well.  She has had a lot of training, neck reining well, spinning, and listening well.  The trainer who evaluated her thinks she was probably a good working horse or performance horse in her younger life.

Due to her age and arthritis, she is available for light to moderate riding:  no jumping, play days, barrel racing, strenuous trails, ranch work, etc.  She would be a great learner horse or lesson horse, or great for someone who wants to pleasure ride some. 

She is missing several teeth, so she needs her grain soaked.  She also has prominent withers and will need a well-fitted quality saddle pad and well-fitted saddle to keep her comfortable.
