About Shiraz

Shiraz and her herdmates came to BEHS in 2011 from a neglect case.  Although she recovered quickly, she was often overlooked for adoption until she met her own family in November 2014.  Shiraz was returned in 2017 due to her adopter’s health.


Nothing is known of Shiraz’s history prior to coming to BEHS.

Health / Lameness

Shiraz has no known health or lameness issues.

Evaluation and Training

Shiraz is a nice mare who leads, loads, and stands tied.  She stands for the farrier, grooming, fly spraying and saddling.  She’s easy to saddle and bridle, and she spent a week in September 2012 with a trainer for evaluation.  He thinks someone got her green broke years ago and then did nothing else with her. 

Shiraz was restarted under saddle for the 2013 Bluebonnet Rescue Horse Training Challenge.  She was very green when she competed at the Challenge and was nervous, but she did well.  Since then her foster home/trainer has continued to work with her.  She is reluctant to canter under saddle and needs someone who can work with her on that, but she’s been ridden by both adults and children in an arena at a walk and trot with no problems.
