About Leila

Leila’s owner passed away and the family was not able to care for her and her herd mates so they were surrendered to BEHS.

Leila will be competing under saddle in the Non-Pro Under In Hand division of the Bluebonnet Rescue Horse Training Challenge with youth handler Norma Kurkowski. She will be available for adoption at the Challenge during the Bluebonnet Horse Expo on October 17, 2020 in Taylor, Texas.

You can follow their progress on their Facebook page.

Evaluation and Training

Leila is sweet, but it seems like she didn't have a lot of handling before coming to Bluebonnet. She's spent time with a foster family, settling in and getting used to being handled, and their young daughter is now working with her for the Bluebonnet Rescue Horse Training Challenge. She's learning to lead better, to longe, and to navigate obstacles in hand.
