About Azure Rey

Azure Rey and his herd mates were surrendered when their owner was investigated for neglect.  He competed in the Rescue Horse Training Challenge at the 2019 Bluebonnet Horse Expo and met his adopter.  Unfortunately their home was hit by a tornado and they were unable to keep him so he was returned in December 2019.

History

Azure Rey’s former owner said the herd was used as therapy animals, but we doubt that as most of them were not broke to ride and were barely even halter broke.

Health / Lameness

Azure Rey has no known health or lameness problems.

Other

Azure Rey won sixth place in the professional division of the 2018 Bluebonnet Rescue Horse Training Challenge with trainer Benjamin Arreguin.

Azure Rey competed under saddle in the professional division of the Bluebonnet Rescue Horse Training Challenge with trainer Darrell Gardner.  You can see more about their preparation and competition on their Facebook page.

Evaluation and Training

Azure Rey was barely halter broke when he came to Bluebonnet, but he was sweet and willing.  He spent three months in the fall of 2018 with trainer Benjamin Arreguin to be started under saddle for the Training Challenge, where he did well, and placed sixth in the professional division.

For the 2019 Training Challenge, he has spent almost 4 months with trainer Darrell Gardner.  They have worked to build on the basics he acquired last year.  They have worked in the arena, out on trail rides, down the road side, and out at public events to build Azure Rey’s skills and experience.  He is going to make a great addition to some lucky adopter’s herd!
