About Gus

Gus was removed from negligent owners and placed with Bluebonnet by the SPCA of Texas.

History

Gus was a stallion when he was seized, but nothing else is known of his history.

Health / Lameness

Gus has no known health or lameness problems.

Other

Gus was gelded in the summer of 2016 at the age of 15.  He can still act studdy at times.

Evaluation and Training

Gus was not broke to ride when he arrived at Bluebonnet.  He spent a few months with a trainer to be started under saddle for the Bluebonnet Rescue Horse Training Challenge.  His trainer decided not to compete as he felt that Gus was not far enough along in his training.

Gus is spending time with trainer Hilary LoBue (February 2018).  She said he’s a very laid-back and chill horse.  So far under saddle he has no desire to move fast.  Hilary is going to work on trail riding with him since she think he’ll be a great trail/pleasure guy.  She says he’s a favorite of her visitors as he is so sweet.
