About Karma

Karma was removed from negligent owners by law enforcement and placed with Bluebonnet by animal control.

History

Nothing is known of Karma’s history before she came to Bluebonnet.

Health / Lameness

Karma has no known health or lameness issues.

Evaluation and Training

Karma has spent a month with trainer Hilary LoBue (May 2017).  It appears that she was ridden before coming to the rescue, but there were many holes in her training.  Hilary restarted her under saddle and says she is doing well.  She’s been ridden in an arena and over trail obstacles, and she has been ridden at a walk, trot, and canter.  She’s still green and learning, but she does learn quickly.

Karma is NOT for a child or beginner at this time.  When she arrived at Bluebonnet, she was very defensive any time someone touched her back or approached her hindquarters.  She would pin her ears and cow kick.  While with Hilary, she improved a lot but she did have one incident where she kicked at Hilary with both back legs.  When handling her on the ground, it is best to keep her nose tipped towards you (which makes it harder for her to kick).  She may continue to improve over time, but she will get worse with a timid or inexperienced handler.
