About Promise

Promise was removed from negligent owners by animal control.  She was rehabilitated and then placed with Bluebonnet by the SPCA of Texas.  She was not broke to ride, so she was enrolled in the professional division of the Bluebonnet Rescue Horse Training Challenge.  She did well at the Challenge and was adopted by someone who had met her at her previous foster home.  She was returned in April 2018 because she was too much horse for her adopter.


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

Health / Lameness

Promise has no known health or lameness problems.

Evaluation and Training

Promise was not broke to ride when she arrived at Bluebonnet.  Trainer Ashley Shaw worked with Promise for the 2017 Bluebonnet Rescue Horse Training Challenge.  Ashley started her under saddle and feels like she could go either English or western, but she needs someone very calm, confident, and patient. She is not spooky but is very sensitive.  She is confident over obstacles and goes walk, trot, and canter, but does not like to back up and has reared when asked to.  She is spending time with trainer Darrell Gardner to work through her rearing problem.  Promise is doing well with Darrell, and she has a lot of potential.  She does have a tendency to take advantage of less experienced riders so she needs an intermediate or above rider.
