About Lincoln

Lincoln was seized from negligent owners and awarded to BEHS.

Lincoln competed in the 2015 Bluebonnet Rescue Horse Training Challenge.  He was adopted by someone who watched him during the competition.

History

Lincoln was a stallion when he arrived and was gelded 11/7/2014.  Otherwise, his history prior to coming to BEHS is unknown.

Health / Lameness

No known health or lameness problems.

Evaluation and Training

It appears Lincoln was not handled much before coming to BEHS.  He leads, loads, and stands for the farrier.  He’s spent June-October 2015 with trainer Paulina Liszka to prepare for the Bluebonnet Rescue Horse Training Challenge.  Paulina’s worked with him in hand on the ground extensively, teaching him to lead, load, carry a saddle and bridle, and work through trail obstacles.  Lincoln has had a few riders, but he’s really not even green broke yet.  He’s going to need an experienced rider who can train him or someone who will be working with a trainer.

Lincoln’s trainer thinks he could make a great eventing horse.  She says that Lincoln is brave, sure-footed, and eager to please.  These characteristics could also make him a good trail horse with some more training.

Lincoln was adopted in October 2015 but returned in April 2016 when he turned out to be too much horse for his adopter.  She had him with a trainer, and we’re waiting for an update on his training level from her trainer before putting him back up for adoption.
