About Sawyer

Sawyer was removed from negligent owners and placed with BEHS by law enforcement.

Sawyer competed in and placed 5th in the professional division at the 2015 Bluebonnet Rescue Horse Training Challenge.  She was adopted at the 2015 Bluebonnet Horse Expo by his trainer.  Bluebonnet Equine Humane Society took him back in 2019 when his adopter broke her contract.


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

Health / Lameness

Sawyer has no known health or lameness problems.


Sawyer will be competing under saddle in the Non-Pro Under Saddle division of the Bluebonnet Rescue Horse Training Challenge with non-pro Tori Jacobson.  He will be available for adoption starting on October 19, 2019 at the Challenge competition during the Bluebonnet Horse Expo in Taylor, Texas.

You can follow their progress on their Facebook page.

Evaluation and Training

Sawyer has had a great deal of training while with Bluebonnet.  He is easy to catch, lead, and load.  He stands for fly spraying, grooming, baths, and farrier work.  A previous adopter rode him around roping arenas and used him to turn back cows.  After he came back to Bluebonnet, his foster home rode him and found him nicely broke to ride.  He isn’t spooky, he is willing to navigate obstacles, and he has an excellent whoa. His Training Challenge partner for 2019 rode him in a parade, and he handled the parade chaos well!  He prefers walking and trotting to loping – he’s pretty lazy!  He would make someone a really nice trail horse or pleasure horse.
