About Caledonia

Caledonia was paced with Bluebonnet after Hurricane Harvey when her owner could no longer keep her.

History

Nothing is known of Caledonia’s history before coming to BEHS.

Health / Lameness

Caledonia has no known health or lameness problems.

Evaluation and Training

Caledonia’s former foster home feels like she has problem been ridden in the past, but it was either a long time ago, she was handled roughly, or both.  She stands well for to be saddled and does not buck or crow-hop while wearing a saddle in the round pen.  She be very pushy on the ground – she seems to have learned how to push into people to evade.  Her foster home was working on these problems when Caledonia was picked up by a Training Challenge trainer.  Unfortunately, the trainer only got to work with Caledonia a handful of times (no fault of Caledonia’s).  She worked on her ground manners and saddling.

In October, Caleodnia went to Darrell Gardner Horsemanship in Bryan, Texas for training.  Darrell says that Caledonia is a pretty nervous mare who was scared of everything when she arrived.  He spent a lot of time working with her on the ground and she’s now working through obstacles in hand and riding in an arena.  She’s still green and not for a novice or beginner rider, but she has a lot of try and is going to be nice for someone willing to take it slow with her and gain her trust.
