About Kai

Kai’s owner passed away and the family was not able to care for her and her herd mates so they surrendered them to Bluebonnet.

Kai can be a little shy initially but she warms up when you give her some time and attention.

Kai will be competing under saddle in the Non Pro in Hand under 12 Division of the Bluebonnet Rescue Horse Training Challenge with youth Brayden Thompson. 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

It looks like Kai wasn't handled much before she came to Bluebonnet. She was flighty and spooky when she arrived. Fortunately for Kai, she was chosen to be part of the Bluebonnet Rescue Horse Training Challenge and is working with experienced youth Challenge competitor Brayden Thompson. He has spent lots of time working on desensitizing her to a variety of things. He has taught her to lead, load, longe, and navigate some obstacles in hand. She still needs a little time to process new things but she has a ton of try!

If you want a miniature horse to show in hand, to be a pet, or to be a companion to a lonely horse, give Kai a chance!
