About Jedao

Jedao was found estray by his county sheriff department dragging a 20 foot heavy chain.  His owner did not come to claim him and he was awarded to BEHS.

History

Nothing is known of Jedao’s history or training.

Health / Lameness

Jedao appears sound but is recovering from starvation and very poor care.  He will be gelded when he is healthier.

Other

Jedao has a wonderful kind personality and is appreciative of his foster mom bringing him food regularly.  Consistent meals seem to surprise him.  He is fascinated by the fact that he has his own water trough available at all times.

Jedao was gelded May 16, 2018.

Jedao will be competing under saddle in the Non-Pro Under Saddle division of the Bluebonnet Rescue Horse Training Challenge with non-pro Tracy Cann.  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

Jedao leads, loads, and is well behaved in hand.  Jedao’s foster home/Training Challenge riding partner has discovered he’s broke to ride.  He doesn’t know a lot, but he has a stunning trot - he just floats across the ground.  He kicks out when pushed into a canter, but he’s improving with regular riding.  He’s got great potential, and he should make someone an amazing riding horse!
