About Poe

Poe was placed with Bluebonnet when her owner could not keep her.  She was adopted and trained and used as a trail horse, but she was returned and readopted when her adopter could not keep her.  She was returned again in 2016 when her adopters could not keep her. Her new foster home adopted her but returned her because she did not have enough time to ride her.

History

Poe was not broke to ride when she came to Bluebonnet.  She was broke to ride and then placed with an adopter who trail rode her.

Health / Lameness

Poe foundered in a previous adopted home.  She is prone to laminitis and must be fed a strict diet with little access to grass and very little (or no) grain.

Other

Poe will be competing under saddle in the Non-Pro Under Saddle division of the Bluebonnet Rescue Horse Training Challenge with non-pro Christy Simmone.  She will be available for adoption starting on October 21, 2017 at the Challenge competition during the Bluebonnet Horse Expo in Austin, Texas.

You can follow their progress on their Facebook page.

Evaluation and Training

Poe is broke to ride and has done quite a bit of trail riding in a previous home.  She’s also been ridden by both children and adults.  She’s now being ridden for four months by her foster home to prepare for the Bluebonnet Rescue Horse Training Challenge.
