Axel is the same day to day no matter if she is ridden or not. She is a very smart alpha mare who takes excellent care of her herd - horses and people.

Breeze is basically the perfect example of Hard Luck Horses' mission statement and she ought to be our poster child. Breeze is an extremely good horse that has really just had a run of bad luck. She is a very sweet and gentle mare who seems more then willing to take other horses under her wing. She is a dream to work with and has excellent manners. She is very well broke, suitable for most any level rider and has had a lot of trail experience. She is going to make a fine riding horse.

Concerns: Past injury to hip. No known issue but needs to be watched.


More info...

Quite frankly, Brujo is the most perfect horse I have ever had the pleasure of being around. I will never understand why his previous owners tried to send him to slaughter. Brujo is a nice big boy who is absolutely gorgeous. He is a dead broke horse that anyone can ride once he likes you. He really takes care of his rider and I have put little kids up on him with no worries. Brujo is also nearly a miracle worker with other horses. You can put him in with badly abused horses and within a short time start seeing a difference in the attitude of the abused horse.

Training: Broke to Ride
Concerns: Tumors


More info...

Casper is an extremely emaciated white Arabian gelding. He is definitely one of the skinniest horses that I have ever seen, although he appears to be otherwise healthy. He is probably about a "1" on the Henneke scale although his thick fur and white coat tend to make photos not show the true extent of his emaciation. He is reported to be a kid safe saddle horse.

Casper was a joint effort between Rodeo51 and HLH... Rodeo51 has decided to keep Casper! :)

He is well broke, well mannered, pretty much bombproof, willing to please and very people orientated. This boy will do whatever you ask of him, and although he would prefer to go fast, he will follow his rider's command flawlessly.

Dingo loves people and he is very friendly - almost dog like. He will follow you around and wants you to pay attention to him all the time. I just can't really overstate how friendly he has become and how much he likes people. He is now fully halter broke, but he is still a little rustier then I would like with that, so I am still working with him. He can now have his feet done without drama and he is pretty easy to work with when it comes to new things.

More info...

Gossip is a 6 year old 15hh black and white registered Pinto mare said to be of Andalusian breeding. She has spent the last five months in professional training and is now broke to ride and getting ready for her new home. She has been out on trails and she loves them. On the trails she will lead, follow, whatever and she will go right through water or anything else you point her at. She has no problems in the arena either and has even done a schooling show in Dressage. She will ride out in both English, Western and even bit-less. Gossip is not a spooky or complicated horse and is as honest as the day long. With more miles and a couple more years she will even make a great kids horse. That is the kind of temperament that she has. This is not a horse you have to force or bully, but a soft mare who will do anything for a kind word. She bathes, stands for the farrier, is good for the vet and jumps into trailers with no problems. She has no vices, problems or holes - she just is young but has readily taken to her training. Gossip is fully up to date on her vet work, farrier work and her worming.

Garda needs a home where she will get to work. She likes having a job and is more than willing. Because she is early in her training she is only available to an intermediate or better rider.

Hunter, is a 13 year old mountain horse who has been-there-done-that up in the high country. Over the hills, through the woods, splashing through the river we go. He is a perfectly sound, healthy, well mannered, well broke, gentleman of a horse.

Josta is a beautiful mare with loads of potential for the person willing to put the work into her. She is built like a tank and she is very flashy. At only 4 years old she is basically a blank slate aside from her reluctance with the vet. She is a highly intelligent horse - too intelligent really - and has shown some ability at problem solving. She is an escape artist who can untie her ropes, unlatch fences and even jump out of fences. Even still she seems to like human contact and will hide behind her people when she is frightened of something.

When I first met Kaiser I knew I was going to have to shoot him. I am glad I was wrong. Kaiser is certainly not the friendliest of horses, but he is a terrific riding horse. He is very well trained and he seems to be very eager to please his rider. At 15 hands he is one of the smallest Appaloosas I have dealt with, but he doesn't seem to know it. This little horse has a huge heart and an indomitable will to pull through whatever life throws at him. He is also one of the very few horses who I have seen that needs no bridle or halter at all.

More info...

Maverick is a chestnut and white pinto mini gelding who stands 33". Maverick is a very sweet and good natured little fellow, but he has earned his name by proving to be a quite capable escape artist. He gets along well with other horses, the dogs, the rabbits, but his patience does not extend far enough to cover my ornery goat Ria. In hand Maverick behaves very well and he is no trouble at all to catch. He leads extremely well, ties, backs, leaps into and out of trailers and generally is just a quiet and kind fellow. His one flaw so far seems to be that he is afraid of the farrier.

Shasta is a very nice Appaloosa mare who is undoubtedly very well bred, but I was never able to get her papers. She is a sweetheart of a horse who will mob you for attention. She really thinks that she is a lap pony and that you should cuddle with her. That being said, she is also very alpha marish with the other horses and can bully other horses if they are not confident. She is well broke and she is another one of the horses who have given pony rides to the summer kids. She is a rock solid mare who is big enough for a man to ride but gentle enough for a child.

More info...

Shimmer is a nice young Rocky Mountain Horse cross breed. He is a beautiful gray color that has different patterns and changes with the light. Sometimes he even appears to be a gray brindle. He is a sweet horse and seems to crave human attention. The other horses do not care for him, but he is good with them. I have been told that he is a racker, but I am unfamiliar with those gaits and so would not want to say for sure. He appears to be well handled and is just a nice boy.

More info...

Sissy's name used to be Sassy and frankly she deserves the name Sassy more. This extremely well bred mare is small, but she doesn't know it and has quickly set herself up as the alpha of our little herd here. She is a been-there-done-that trail horse who has been used for everything from trails, to barrels, to lessons and beyond. Sissy is all heart and she will go over, under, or through anything and can be ridden my most folks.

More info...

Skandal is a 15.2hh 11 year old registered Paint mare. She is a confident and fearless trail horse, who is at home in the woods or arena. She is trained with natural horsemanship methods, and knows pretty much everything. She is big, sound, healthy and courageous. However, the most impressive thing about this horse is her mind. She is an extremely intelligent mare who thinks things through. Skandal is a confident, fair, firm and self-assured alpha mare who requires her rider to be her equal. Earn this mare's trust and respect and she'll be the best friend you have ever had.

Concerns: Very fat


More info...

Spice is a very friendly chestnut mini mare who has a bit of flare and an over the top personality. She likes people, gets along with other horses, and has not been bad around dogs. Spice is very sure of herself and she can be a bit dramatic about her opinions, but generally she is a good girl. She is halter broke, comes when called, and is good about her feet. The only concern I really have with Spice is her weight and she will need to be monitored for that.

Stormy is a sweet little true black pony who is afraid of nothing and is very gentle. This pony is one of those horses that would be able to do almost any event that someone asked of her and she has the personality to make it a dream. Stormy is always the very first one to greet you at the fence and follows me around like a puppy. She seems to be very calm, tolerant and eager to please. I can see this little girl going on to show and taking some little girl as far as she cares to go.

More info...

Sugar is a young white miniature gelding. He is exactly what his name implies: sweet as sugar. This boy is a lover not a fighter! He is super duper friendly, affectionate and people orientated. He likes other horses and even the dogs, but if a person is out there he is their little pale shadow. He follows you all around begging for attention and love. Sugar is extremely well mannered and has all his ground work down pat. He appears to be perfectly healthy and I have no worries or concerns about him at all.

Sweet Year   (Deceased)

Gender: Mare
Color: Chestnut Star and Hashmark
Height: ~16 hh
Source: Transfer
Date In: 10/26/2014
Date Out: 8/13/2016
Training: Well Broke
Concerns: Herdbound, serious pain issues


More info...

Sweet Year is an older OTTB mare who has been in the rescue system for almost half her life and has bounced back and forth between several rescues. She is a bold, bright, daring and trustworthy mare. She rides both English and Western and has even had a tiny bit of Dressage training. Sweet Year is confident enough for intermediate riders but safe enough for beginners. She can be a bit herdbound and is hard to fit for a saddle, but neither of those are insurmountable. Sweet Year is currently in rehab and will be evaluated later for either riding, retirement, or worst case, euthanasia.

Tango   (Adopted)

Breed: Appaloosa 
Age: 4 years
Gender: Gelding
Color: White Leopard
Height: 15.1 hh
Source: Kill Pen
Date In: 9/28/2007
Date Out: 10/10/2007
Training: Good ground manners, but probably no saddle training.
Concerns: None.


More info...

Tango is just a nice honest boy. He is good natured and has decent manners but probably has not had any other training done with him. He is a nicely built young gelding who will mature to be a nice solid horse suitable for most western disciplines. He is playful and not spooky, and he gets along with other horses. A really nice prospect for someone who wants to train him their way.

Tara   (Deceased)

Breed: Thoroughbred 
Age: 13 years
Gender: Mare
Color: Bay Star and two socks
Height: 15.3 hh
Source: Kill Pen
Date In: 5/11/2016
Date Out: 8/13/2016
Training: Broke
Concerns: Cripple


More info...

Tara is the sweetest horse that I have ever met. She genuinely loves people and wants to be with you all the time. She is well mannered, easy to handle, obliging and willing. Her greatest joy is just to stand quietly with you while you brush her. Her front feet show the abuse of chronic founder and while she moves soundly out on the grass and appears to be without pain there, however the question will be if she can be kept pain-free long term.

Tarkh   (Adopted)

Breed: Percheron Quarter Horse
Age: 8 years

More info...

Tarkh has the most beautiful movement that I have seen on any horse. When he runs folks just stop and stare. The power, grace, and beauty of Tarkh in motion is truly amazing. Unfortunately he hard to catch, can be spooky and can be very suspicious of people.

Date Out: 4/26/2008
Training: Well trained
Concerns: Herdbound


More info...

This girl is a sweet heart! She is a been-there-done-that easy going people pleaser. She handles everything in stride and has obviously been a trail horse. She is gaited and appears sound and healthy, but she is herdbound. She could be ridden by a beginner rider if she was taken along with a horse buddy, but for single riding she should have an intermediate rider.
