Once he finds his person to bond with he'll be even more fun to ride!

OLIVE (ADOPTED)

HACKNEY-MARE-17YRS. OLD-13.1HH

This sweet, little beauty came to us from a NJ kill pen. On arrival she was so scared she wouldn't let us near her but, has gotten much better with time. 

She was adopted in 2016 to a great family as a companion to another horse. She immediately blossomed in her new home!  The quiet life with one other horse was just what she needed.  Sadly, her family fell on hard times a year later and they lost everything so Olive came back to us.  

The family was in tears when they brought her back and hoped that one day they could come back for her when life got better but has not happen. She has waited a long time for a home of her own and will do best as a companion. She may even be a great little driving pony with training.
