About Tic Tac

Tic Tac’s owner surrendered her when he was investigated for neglect.  After being rehabilitated, we found out she was broke to ride.  She was quickly adopted as a pleasure/trail horse in 2013.  She was returned in 2018 due to her adopter’s health.

History

Tic Tac was a race horse as a younger horse.  We know nothing of her history between when she stopped racing and when she came to BEHS.

Health / Lameness

Tic Tac has no known health or lameness problems.

She is stiff in her hind legs.  She was evaluated by a veterinarian in August 2018 who felt that she had a mild soft tissue injury.  Her veterinarian feels that she is sound for riding but not for jumping.  She should be able to do trail work, pleasure work, and even dressage without problems (per her veterinarian).

Other

Tic Tac will be competing under saddle in the Non-Pro Under Saddle division of the Bluebonnet Rescue Horse Training Challenge with non-pro Amber Kurkowski.  Sh 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

Tic Tac’s former owner said she was a pleasure/trail horse.  While we cannot verify that, she has been ridden in two foster homes and also ridden by her adopter.  Her current foster home, who has had her since she was returned, says stands when tied, leads, and is good with fly spray.  However she can be hard to catch (although she’s getting better each time).  and is very touchy about her ears.  Her foster home says she lunges nicely.  She has ridden her at the walk, trot, and canter.
