About Buela

Buela was placed with Bluebonnet when her owners were investigated for neglect.


Nothing is know of her history before coming to Bluebonnet.


Buela is definitely a mare. She will let you walk to her without a lead rope, but she is smart enough to run away from someone with one behind their back. She gets a little grumpy and has a slight attitude when asked to work, but there’s definitely more bark than bite in her.  The trainer who evaluted here said she would have a lot of heart and try for the right person that appreciates the heart of an opinionated mare!  She’s sassy, but cute, and has great potential as an English prospect!

Evaluation and Training

Buela was evaluated by a trainer.  She said Buela is a rockstar on the lunge. She’s a huge mover and covers ground, understands moving away from pressure, gives to pressure at the poll, backs, turns on her haunches.  She’s balanced and has no problem picking up both leads on the ground.  She has definitely been saddled and ridden but it has likely been awhile and it appears she has not had a lot of formal training. 

She is a calm mare that would really benefit from some time under saddle to gain muscle and learn how to carry herself correctly.  She will make a really nice horse with exercise and training. She would be best for at least an intermediate rider, preferably one working with a trainer, as she could take advantage of a less experienced person.  A consistent, educated rider should be able to get her back on track without learning any bad habits and she should make a willing equine partner.
