About Lil Man Tate

Lil Man Tate came to Bluebonnet when his owner was unable to keep him. He has a sweet personality but can be dominate with other horses when it comes to food. Otherwise, he gets along with his foster home’s other gelding.

Lil Man Tate is a registered American Quarter Horse gelding named Shine on Lil Peppy. He's a well-bred guy, although Bluebonnet does not have his papers. He could still be a nice ranch, trail, or open show horse for a lucky adopter.

Lil Man Tate will be competing under saddle in the Professional division of the Bluebonnet Rescue Horse Training Challenge with trainer Joe Blair will be available for adoption at the Challenge during the Bluebonnet Horse Expo on October 17, 2020 in Taylor, Texas.

Evaluation and Training

Lil Man Tate's donor reported that he was spent 30 days with an established trainer in Louisiana in 2014. The donor reported he only bucked when he was initially saddled but was fine after that. He had quick reflexes, good foot work, and easy lope. Unfortunately his previous owner was unable to continue his training beyond that.

Lil Man Tate will be competing under saddle in the Non-Pro Under Saddle division of the Bluebonnet Rescue Horse Training Challenge with Bernie Wilimitis. He will be available for adoption at the Challenge during the Bluebonnet Horse Expo on October 17, 2020 in Taylor, Texas.
