About Azure Rey

Azure Rey and his herdmates were surrendered when their owner was investigated for neglect.

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 will be competing under saddle in the professional division of the Bluebonnet Rescue Horse Training Challenge with trainer Darrell Gardner.  He will be available for adoption starting on October 19, 2019 at the Challenge competition during the Bluebonnet Horse Expo in Taylor, Texas.

You can follow their progress 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.  He’s still very green and has recently begun bolting with his non-pro rider.  We think he’s likely insecure and he bolts to cope, but he’s going to need an experienced/confident rider to help him through that problem and help develop him as a riding partner.
