Evaluation and Training

Bonnie is a cute pony.  She leads, loads, and stands for the farrier.  She spent about five weeks with trainer Hilary LoBue and was started under saddle in the fall of 2017.  She only had a few rides and then was not ridden again after October 2017.

Bonnie is enrolled in the Bluebonnet Rescue Horse Training Challenge for 2018.  Her trainer has spent a lot of time on ground work, but due to weather and a new job, she has only been ridden a few times.  Bonnie’s got huge potential – she’s just going to need someone who can continue the great foundation her two trainers have given her.
