Colby is a nice hunter, eventing, or dressage prospect. He’s walk, trot, canter under saddle and has been introduced to trotting small poles and cross-rails. He shows outstanding sport potential for an advanced rider with the experience to bring a young horse along (or someone who can work with a good trainer). Adoption Fee: $750

Colby: One Month Later

He was adopted out to a wonderful woman in Sept., 2013. He came back to the rescue (Nov, 2015) due to time and resource constraints. Reason for Return: “After much deliberation on my part as well as my trainers we have decided that Colby and I just aren’t a great match for each other. While I love him to pieces and we’ve come along way it’s just we butt heads too much. He needs a more quiet and more consistent ride than I can give him right now. With the demands of work being so great right now. He is going great under saddle and even trotting small fences I just can’t give him the constant riding he needs.”

    I’m SHOCKED that he returned to the rescue, I actually worked with him at Helping Hearts for a while and totally fell in love.
