This poor horse has been passed around from kill buyer to kill buyer, he has changed hands AT least 4 times in a very short time!
Well Rusty, the slaughter save, has shown that he definitely has been missed treated and abused in his past. Possibly from a man because he was originally very scared and would act like our trainer was trying to kill him when he was just trying to pet him. Andy took it super slow with Rusty and gained his trust. Due to Rusty’s abusive past he spent a lot of time with the trainer. Andy has spent two months on groundwork and has also been working on boundaries. Rusty then went into riding training.
Rusty was doing well in training but he has a bucking issue.
Rusty is a prime example of abused horses we take in as he spent four months in training before we were ready to put him up for adoption.
This beautiful boy is a grulla and white pinto! He is estimated to be 8 years old and is just under 14 hands. Rusty is a slaughter save who is a sound rocky mountain gaited horse. He is pretty gentle on the ground and gaits wonderfully! Rusty has just returned from four months of training and will need an experienced rider! His trainer has encouraged to lunge him before riding for best results. Rusty is more than ready for and in need of his forever home!
