FEE: $1500 starting bid in August at ATFO
This horse is part of a special training event called the Appalachian Trainer Face Off. You can learn about it on Facebook and on our website. Horses in this training event are adoptable following 100+ days of training in August.
She is currently in training with Ashley Francese and you can follow her progress: #hopteamseven
Seven is smart and curious and has a LOVELY trot and canter. She is starting to meet her trainer at the gate, ready to work.
In the last 30 days we’ve worked hard on the following skills:
🐢 Standing tied
🐢 Leading calmly
🐢 Sending L and R
🐢 Yielding hips and shoulders L and R
🐢 Side-pass L and R
🐢 Head down on command
🐢 Wearing an English saddle, pad, a western saddle blanket and a surcingle
🐢 Backing up
🐢 Ground tying
🐢 Standing to be groomed (she loves being pampered)
🐢 Standing for fly spray
🐢 Letting me stand in one eye (including work with whips, flags, tarps and ropes)
🐢 Roping a dummy and dragging it toward her
🐢 Trailer loading
🐢 Lifting her feet on command
🐢 Working with her from another horse
Our current  holes are:
🇮🇹 Letting me touch her feet. We work on this daily, but it’s just taking awhile to get her comfortable in what she considers to be an extremely vulnerable position.
🇮🇹 Keeping her calm and focused when other people are nearby. She’s okay, if the other people are mounted, but is very nervous if they are on foot.
🇮🇹 Driving her slowly forward from behind. I’d particularly like to eventually start ground driving her, so getting her more comfortable with me behind her is a must.

Adoption fees may be outdated, as a horse may have moved into training, so check us on most current fee. Horses typically adopted UTD on vaccines, dental floats, farrier care and all vet needs.
Horse Locations Typically in Appalachia, but please inquire about a horse’s specific location when you apply!
We are looking to adopt to safe homes.
A history of good horsemanship, the ability to provide sufficient care with good vet, farrier and peer references are important. If you are a first time horse owner, we will require you to board at a facility for the first year while you learn more about care. We encourage everyone to take advantage of riding lessons.
Foal adoptions require previous, established experience with youngsters.
Our adoption process makes sure you get the right horse for you – it is a no fail process for finding the right match. Apply at https://wvhorserescue.org/adopt
