Frosty is our
current Featured Horse, Available for Placement
It's easy to see how Frosty got her name. Just
take one look at her snow-white coat! When Frosty was rescued on June
24, 2013, she was very skittish and even the smallest routine care tasks, such as putting a fly mask on, were hard for her.
Now Frosty is trusting with just about anything. Frosty is
15 years old and around 13.2 hands tall. She also has beautiful hazel eyes! Frosty is
a bit slow to trust, but once you earn it, she will do anything for you. Never try to muscle her into doing anything. A little
patience will go a long way with all horses. Frosty will stand in a stall
to be groomed without tying. She is patient and good with her hooves. Just touch them and she picks them up! Frosty seems
to enjoy working and being ridden. She is very intelligent and seems to know what her job is. She may have been a child's
pony or even used in lessons in her earlier life because she is incredibly patient and calm when ridden. She holds herself
very nicely with loose reins and seems to recognize leg aids, although she could use a good refresher.
She would make a great child's
pony, but only if the child is confident and has an adult to guide them, since Frosty can
be a little spunky out in the field with her herd. (She is a high ranked horse, so she can take a bit of convincing to leave
them. She feels the need to make sure they are all safe.) She would also be suitable for a beginner adult, teen, or even older
child. However, she would need a small rider. Frosty is currently working
on conditioning and gaining muscle tone. She is currently being ridden English and she seems to have previous training in
that, but I'm sure she could learn Western with the right trainer. She could go anywhere but seems to be best suited for
Hunter/Jumper, Dressage, or would make a wonderful English Pleasure or trail pony.
