About Rajaleel

RaJaleel (RJ) was seized from his owner and awarded by the courts to BEHS.  He was adopted and then returned in 2009 when his adopters moved out of state, and he was adopted in 2012 and returned when his adopter did not have time for him. Rajaleel attended the 2015 Bluebonnet Horse Expo, met an adopter, and went to a new home!  That home returned him in 2019 through no fault of his.

History

RJ’s history prior to coming to BEHS is unknown.

Health / Lameness

RJ has a club foot. With proper trimming, it does not appear to bother him at all.

Other

Manu, RJ’s half brother, won the 2010 Bluebonnet Rescue Horse Training Challenge.  RJ won the foster horse in hand division of the Bluebonnet Rescue Horse Training Challenge in 2014.

Evaluation and Training

RJ is a good-natured horse who loves attention. When he arrived at BEHS, he had not been handled much but he has come a long ways since then. He is easy to catch in pasture (if he does walk or trot off, he stops when you call his name).  RJ spent six months in late 2013-early 2014 in training with a BEHS-approved trainer.  He restarted Rajaleel under saddle and did done a great deal of desensitization work with him.  RJ’s trainer rode him in fields, on trails, through water, and over obstacles. 

RJ also competed in the 2014 Bluebonnet Rescue Horse Training Challenge and the 2015 Bluebonnet Rescue Horse Training Challenge in hand and did fabulous!

RJ is extremely well behaved on the ground. He is easy to catch, loves bathing and grooming. He can be mischievous and playful also. He is not good for mounting and tries to move sideways when his rider puts a foot in the stirrup.  This should improve with consistent work.
