About Panama Jack

Panama Jack’s owners surrendered him when they were investigated for neglecting their horses. Panama Jack competed in the 2015 Bluebonnet Rescue Horse Training Challenge and was adopted by someone who watched the competition.


Panama Jack’s history before coming to BEHS is unknown.

Health / Lameness

None known.


Panama Jack will be competing under saddle in the professional division of the Bluebonnet Rescue Horse Training Challenge with trainer Cassidy Edwards.  He will be available for adoption starting on October 21, 2017 at the Challenge competition during the Bluebonnet Horse Expo in Austin, Texas.

Evaluation and Training

When he arrived at BEHS, Panama Jack was very nervous and scared of everything.  He spent June-October 2015 with trainer Sarah Osborn working to overcome those fears.  She’s started him under saddle, and she has ridden him in a field, over obstacles, and in new places. 

Panama Jack was adopted at the Bluebonnet Horse Expo but was returned when he was too much horse for his adopter.  Panama Jack is back with Sarah Osborn, who started him under saddle.  She says he is a very nervous horse who will need the right person who is willing to work with him. 

Panama Jack is spending four months with trainer Cassidy Edwards preparing for the Bluebonnet Rescue Horse Training Challenge.  He’s being restarted under saddle and will work over obstacles and in an arena as part of his training.  He’s probably always going to be a horse who is nervous and needs a rider who can reassure him.  Although he is a big horse, he seems to prefer women and would do better with a female adopter.
