About Iris

Iris was removed from a negligent owner and placed with Bluebonnet Equine Humane Society. Iris attended the 2019 Bluebonnet Horse Expo and was adopted but was returned later through no fault of her own.

Iris will be competing under saddle in the Non-Pro Under Saddle division of the Bluebonnet Rescue Horse Training Challenge with Mia Zaky. She will be available for adoption at the Challenge during the Bluebonnet Horse Expo on October 17, 2020 in Taylor, Texas.

Evaluation and Training

Iris is a nice, stocky horse who has great potential for trails, pleasure, or possibly even working cattle (with extra training). She is good to catch, she leads well, stands tied, and loads well. She is also good for the farrier and veterinarian. If Iris was ridden before coming to Bluebonnet, it wasn't much and she didn't get any real training. She spent a couple of months with trainer Hilary LoBue. Hilary started her under saddle and says that Iris is a nice horse, but still very green. She can be a little spooky at times and needs someone who will continue bringing her along - but this girl has so much potential!
