About Akeem

Akeem came to Bluebonnet Equine Humane Society as part of a neglect case.  He was adopted in 2009 but returned in 2013 because he wasn’t getting along well with another horse in the herd.  He attended the 2013 Bluebonnet Horse Expo where he met his adopter.  Congrats to Akeem and his new family!

History

Akeem’s foster home believes he was started under saddle before he came to BEHS, but nothing else is known of his history.

Health / Lameness

Akeem has one small growth on his neck, but it does not seem to bother him.  He has no other known health or lameness problems.

Evaluation and Training

Akeem is a sweet, affectionate, and easy horse to handle.  His former adopters did some dressage training with him and rode him on trail rides as well.  He leads, loads, stands tied and cross-tied, and longes well.  He prefers a hackamore to a snaffle bit.  If ridden in a bit, he prefers being ridden without much contact.  His former adopters spent a lot of time training him, and he has a wonderful stop, steers off of weight changes and leg cues, and has a wonderful, long, beautiful trot.

Don’t let his age fool you:  he doesn’t know he’s a teenager!  He could be shown in hunter pleasure classes or lower level dressage, or he could go on to be a fun trail horse.
