About Remedy

Remedy was removed from a negligent owner and placed with BEHS by animal control.

History

Remedy’s former owner reported she was used as a trail horse.

Health / Lameness

Remedy was emaciated and sunburned when she arrived.  She has no other known health or lameness problems.

Other

Remedy was pregnant when she arrived at Bluebonnet.  She had a lovely filly on March 8, 2016.

Evaluation and Training

Remedy is a sweet mare who is easy to handle on the ground.  She is good to catch, leads, and loads well.  She navigates trail obstacles in hand well.  Remedy’s former owners said she was a trail horse, although we cannot evaluate that.  She does stand well for saddling and does well over obstacles in hand.

Remedy spent a month with trainer Hilary LoBue in mid-March to mid-April 2017.  Hilary said Remedy did not seem to know much when she arrived, but by the end of the month she was able to walk, trot, and canter with a rider.  She also does well navigating trail obstacles with a rider.

She’s a very sweet and quiet mare, and she has great potential to be a pleasure or trail horse for someone willing to continue riding her.
