About Gus

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


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.


Gus will be spending a month (mid-May to mid-June) with trainer Aaron England to see if he can overcome his bucking issues.  His adoption fee will be set once Aaron has worked with him and sees how his behavior improves.

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 does not like being touched behind his saddle when he has a rider on his back. He is fine being touched behind the side when no one is on his back. Sometimes he will tolerate it when someone is on his back. Other times he crow-hops or humps his back, and he has bucked seeral times when his rump is touched.  He is going to spend mid-May through mid-June with trainer Aaron England and will be avialable for adoption once Aaron sees if they can work through his bucking issues.
