About Miss Buttons

Miss Buttons was seized by law enforcement and awarded to BEHS Miss Buttons competed in the 2013 Bluebonnet Rescue Horse Training Challenge and was adopted by someone who watched her performances.  She was returned in 2017.

Health / Lameness

Miss Buttons has no known health/lameness problems.

Evaluation and Training

When Miss Buttons (Missy) arrived in the rescue, she was shy and standoffish.  With daily handling, she came around and learned to enjoy attention. 

Miss Buttons is extremely easy going and very affectionate.  She prefers softer riders who are patient, the more harsh you are with her the more concerned she is.  And she’s a beautiful mover. She was started under saddle for the 2013 Bluebonnet Rescue Horse Training Challenge.  She just spent 3 months (July-October 2017) with trainer Kayt Ladue-Laymon being ridden.  She has done well in the round pen, arena, and riding out in fields.  Kayt also feels Miss Buttons could be great at low level dressage.
