Shelby is an 11-year old Appaloosa/Welsh pony cross, she is 13.2-13.3hh, and Shelby is a stunning pony.
As the summer comes to a close, we have reassessed Shelby and find that she no longer matches her previous description. Shelby does love attention and loves to be ridden; she enjoys it though she is sore after and needs some time to rest.
Shelby we believe was used as a show pony previously and suffers from arthritis. When ridden she just wants to go and go, and if ridden should be done by a small experienced rider. We feel that Shelby would be best suited in a companion setting with very light riding. Shelby's rider should be confident and experienced as she is not a beginner horse. Shelby could benefit from Bute when being ridden and some time off in between rides.
Shelby has been ridden very casually this year and likes having a job or purpose. Shelby is an easy keeper as she lives outdoors 24/7 in a medium size herd, she does well outdoors and has no issues or vices.
Shelby is available for adoption with an approved adoption application and a donation to the Rescue.
If you would like further information on Shelby please contact the Rescue.
All Rescue horses are available for free lease or foster. By free leasing a Rescue horse it frees up a place for the rescue to assist another horse, pony or donkey in need. That could be an owner surrendered equine or an equine currently in a feedlot waiting their turn on the truck that will take them to slaughter.
If you are interested in free lease or fostering please contact the Rescue and find out how you can help us give another equine a Second Chance.
All our adoptable equines will be adopted out on an adoption contract and are micro-chipped after the successful completion and approval of an adoption application. Please contact the Rescue for an adoption application today.
Trailering is purchasers responsibility. We can recommend trailering services for you if needed.
