Coming home - trial didn't work out!

This stunning 6 year old sorrel 14.1 hand mare was rescued from the feedlot in May 2006. She has been started under saddle and is available for adoption to the perfect home.

Well, I received a call from Joanna today. She said that Class really just wasn't cut out as a beginner lesson horse for young children. Class hasn't done anything wrong, like bucking, kicking, rearing or bolting - but she's just too smart for her own good and realizes that the young children can't make her go. She's definitely very safe, but not what the younger lesson students need. The older students want the more experienced jumper horses. LOL

So, long story short - Class is coming home! I am heading out of town for the next 5 days to visit my mom and family for Thanksgiving. But when I get back, I'll be picking up Class. Now, I kind of got myself in a bind by taking Zoe in before making sure that Class' adoption was secured. I've got it handled - we'll either be over-crowded here at home, or I'll board Class at a boarding facility near by.

But - if anyone is interested in fostering Class, let me know! :) She's a gem, an easy keeper and a safe riding horse!

You know I would love to try out Class, but it's just so far away to get her here. I wish we could come up with the gas money and then you could bring her down. She is a really nice horse and I would love to see her.

Sandi, Class is definitely a horse that anybody could ride on the trails...when I rode her I was just amazed at how she doesn't even look at new things. Traffic near the arena was ignored, bicycles didn't matter, loose dogs who cares. Just a gem of a little horse. You guys would love her because she is just hop on and go.

Yea, I am partial to Quarter type horses. Why I have Arabians, God only knows, but I do love them! We used to have Quarter horses when Juliane was young, and I just love the soundness of them. Class looks and appears to be a real nice horse. I would love to try her out. :lol:

She is a beauty. I am looking for something for my 13 year old.

Well, I picked up Class this morning from Joanna's. Class was in pretty good spirits. She'd lost a tad bit of weight, but nothing to be concerned about. I brought her to drill with me tonight and rode her through our normal routines. Then, at the end of the night, I offered to let one of my drill team mates take Class home for the week to try her out for her teenage daughter.

Who knows if it will be a match, or even a long term deal, but it will give me some time to get organized and find somewhere ideal for Class to go, since I have Zoe here at home now :)

LilMzMom - you would love Class! :) Too bad you are so far away!
