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.


Nothing is known of Miss Buttons’s history before coming to BEHS.

Health / Lameness

Miss Buttons has no known health/lameness problems.


Miss Buttons will be competing under saddle in the Non-Pro Under Saddle division of the Bluebonnet Rescue Horse Training Challenge with non-pro Stephane Harvey.  She will be available for adoption starting on October 20, 2018 at the Challenge competition during the Bluebonnet Horse Expo in Austin, Texas.

You can follow their progress on their Facebook page.

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.
