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

In January of 2019, Promise was taken to see the veterinarian because she had begun bucking under saddle.  After a lameness exam and x-rays of her back, her vet diagnosed her with kissing spines right where a saddle would go.  Because of this, she is unridable.

Evaluation and Training

Promise was not broke to ride when she arrived at Bluebonnet.  She was started under saddle but then began bucking, and we discovered that she had kissing spines.  She is sound when not ridden but will not be able to be ridden in the future.

She’s a very pretty mare who will make someone a nice pet and companion to other horses.
