Leon is an 19yo (2001) Appendix gelding. He came to the Rescue in November 2014 from Deaf Smith County, off the track, left abandoned, starved, and is one of our most severe abuse cases to date. He pulled through, and has become a favorite among the volunteers and has proven to be a great teacher in the Volunteer Program. He is even featured in our 13 minute award winning short doc on our website (on our About page) Leon was in our Sanctuary program for a few years since we felt he needed time to heal his swollen ankles and from such severe starvation. Last fall of 2019 he started in the training program, and will be a great horse for an intermediate kid or adult who just wants a trail or light riding horse. Leon is a survivor with grit and heart - qualities he exemplifies daily and he is ready for his forever family!
