Opie was part of a large neglect case. He was removed in a joint effort between BEHS and law enforcement and then placed with BEHS by the courts. When Opie arrived at BEHS, he had never been handled by humans.  His foster home worked to win his trust and then worked to get him halter broke.  In the spring of 2012, he spent time with a trainer and was started under saddle.  Opie was eager to please and a quick learner, and he progressed quickly through training.  In July, he was adopted along with Blackie to be a teenager’s first horse.  They were both returned three years later when the family lost interest in horses.

Opie attended the 2016 Bluebonnet Horse Expo and was adopted at the event.  He was returned in 2018 when he did not work out at his home.  He spent time with a trainer and then attended the Bluebonnet HelpAHorse Adoption Event in spring of 2019.  He was adopted at the event, and we’re excited for him to have a home!
