Chestnut / Sorrel
Kylo was living at a boarding stable and his owners could no longer care for him so they donated him to Bluebonnet.
Kylo has a stock horse type build. His coat, mane and tail are an incredible shade of red and he shines in the sun! Kylo’s foster mom jokingly calls him “Eeyore” as he stands with his head really low to the ground when he is resting and nothing really seems to bother him. He fits in well with the other horses, including a miniature horse, at his current foster home and is submissive towards them. He has great ground manners and will stay calmly tied for as long as you want to groom him or whatever! Kylo is not a big fan of dogs running around him. He will lower his head and pin his ears when dogs are around.
Kylo is a cribber and, despite being out on pasture 24/7, he still cribs excessively. He has evidently been doing it for many years as his upper teeth are worn down all the way. He cribs on metal gates and the wood in his lean-to shelter.
Kylo will be competing in the Non Pro Under Saddle division of the 2021 Spring BEHS Rescue Horse Training Challenge with trainer Kiley Smith. You can follow their progress on their Facebook page by *CLICKING HERE*. Challenge horses will be available for adoption starting on May 15, 2021 at the Circle T Arena in Hamilton, TX during the competition.
Evaluation and Training
Kylo's is broke to ride. His foster home has walked and trotted him in the round pen and walked around the pastures. He is rusty so will need a refresher and someone willing to put some time into getting him back into physical shape to be ridden.
He does require a confident rider that can keep him from turning back to his favorite spots where he cribs and eats. He is slow and tires easily, so light riding would be best. His foster family feels he would make a great lead line horse.
