About Remington

Remington was removed from negligent owners and placed with BEHS.  He recovered and his foster home discovered he was a nice riding horse, although fairly green under saddle.  He was adopted and returned in 2018 when his adopters decided he wasn’t working out for them.

History

Nothing is known of Remington’s history before he came to BEHS.

Health / Lameness

Remington was examined when he first arrived at BEHS, and his veterinarian believes his jaw was broken in the past and healed crookedly.  Fortunately it does not seem to bother him.  He has no other known health or lameness problems.

Other

Remington’s foster home has set up a Facebook page for him.  You can follow their progress here.

Evaluation and Training

Remington is a gentle giant who has a little pep in his step.  His foster family has been riding him in the forest and local arena. Because of his size, he tends to have a big trot, which might be difficult for a beginner rider.  He loads, stands for farrier, grooming, and fly spray.  He is easy to saddle and bridle, and he stands to mount.  His foster home says that he is a joy to ride.

Remington’s foster home says that he has no bad habits under saddle, but he does prefer to trail ride with a buddy.  Remington has a lot to offer his lucky adopter!

Remington’s current foster home ridden him while carrying a flag and while dragging tires.  She has also thrown a rope off of him, and none of these things bothered him at all.
