About Hugo

Hugo and his herdmate were removed from in negligent owners by law enforcement and placed with Bluebonnet by animal control.

History

Hugo was a stallion when seized and gelded in March 2019.  Nothing else is known of history before coming to Bluebonnet.

Health / Lameness

Hugo has no known health or lameness problems.

Other

Hugo will be competing under saddle in the professional division of the Bluebonnet Rescue Horse Training Challenge with trainer Sabine Lazo.  He 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

When Hugo arrived he was a nice horse to handle on the ground, but it appeared he hadn’t had much, if any, training. 

Hugo has spent June-October with trainer Sabine Lazo to be started under saddle.  He quickly became a perfect gentleman about grooming, bathing, saddling, and having his hooves handled.  They have focused on basics under saddle: walk, trot, stop, turns on the forehand, backing and even catching leads.  They have moved on to navigating trail obstacles.  His trainer says he is smart and learns quickly. 

He is still green but is going to make someone a very nice riding horse.  He has the potential to do anything his adopter would like to train him for!
