AVAILABLE FOR ADOPTION
Ophelia (Registered Name: Rafter H. Kitty)
Ophelia is a beautiful 14.2h, 21-year-old Registered Quarter Horse mare. She was a reliable and popular school horse for 9 years, teaching advanced-beginner and intermediate riders. She was ridden on trails too, and is a very solid trail horse with smooth gaits.
Ophelia is a very sweet, animated mare who loves attention and gets along very well with other horses. In fact, she performed with a drill team, riding in close proximity to other horses. She can no longer handle the heavy work load of the schooling program, though, so she is looking to retire and enjoy some light-duty trail riding with a new owner. She is also gentle enough to do lead-line rides when youngsters come to visit.
Ophelia is a very special horse who took wonderful care of her riders for many years. Don't miss out on this amazing mare! If you would like to give Ophelia the loving, forever home she is looking for, please contact us. Ophelia's weight limit is 160; please consider this when expressing interest.
Ophelia will be adopted to an approved home only.
References, an adoption fee and an adoption agreement are required

Friends of Lord Stirling Stable School Horse Retirement Program - Mission Statement:
The Friends of Lord Stirling Stable School Horse Retirement Program was established in 2003 as a means to find suitable new homes for horses retiring from the Lord Stirling Stable lesson program. The program helps to ensure that our retiring horses, which have worked so faithfully for us, continue to be loved and well cared for, even with their limitations. The Program maintains a fund to be used to cover costs of board and care for retiring horses until a suitable home can be found. This program helps to ensure a bright future for our school horses.
Please visit our website for up to date information on the horses available for adoption as well as some of our success stories. To date, 41 retired school horses have found their forever home through our program.
