About Finn

Finn was placed with Bluebonnet when his owner was no longer able to keep him.

History

Finn was started under saddle but was not ridden by his previous owner in some time.

Health / Lameness

Finn’s former owner said he sometimes has allergies in the spring that make him rub off some of his hair.  His vet prescribed antihistamines that alleviate his itchiness and are only taken in the spring.  He has no other known health or lameness problem.

Other

Finn will be competing under saddle in the Non-Pro Under Saddle division of the Bluebonnet Rescue Horse Training Challenge with youth non-pro Sabine Lazo.  He will be available for adoption starting on October 20, 2018 at the Challenge competition during the Bluebonnet Horse Expo in Austin, Texas.

You can follow their progress on their Facebook page.

Evaluation and Training

Finn is easy to catch, load, and lead.  He spent 60 days with a trainer in 2015 and was being ridden by the end of training.  His former owner says that he is not afraid of crossing water or logs, barking dogs, or honking horns, and she thinks he would make a great little trail animal for a child with more training.  He has not been ridden in quite some time, so he’ll need someone who can refresh and continue his training.
