Evaluation and Training

Smokestack Lightning hadn’t been started under saddle when she came to Bluebonnet.  She spent 2.5 momths with a trainer to prepare for the Bluebonnet Rescue Horse Training Challenge in 2017.  She placed 4th in the professional division. 

Her trainer started her under saddle and over trail obstacles.  She also trail rode her.  Smokestack Lightning is a sensible mare who is going to make someone a nice trail, pleasure, or working horse.
