Facts about Buttercup

  • Breed: Tennessee Walking Horse/Thoroughbred Mix
  • Color: Bay
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Unknown
  • Sex: Female
  • ID#: 10233885

Buttercup came in to rescue after being saved by a good samaritan who found her in an abandonment situation.  Buttercup was young, unhandled, and not yet halter trained.  She has been with Safe Harbor for 4 months now and is being restarted by a volunteer trainer.  Her ground manners are excellent and is currently in the snaffle bit under saddle.  She direct reins great but now we are adding in leg pressure to her training, she is a very sensitive horse, so a little bit can go a long ways.  She has thoroughbred brain, and is forward and quick to think, so she needs an owner with more intuition than she has who can provide leadership.   Buttercup has the combination of intelligence and insecurity, so she is not a beginner horse, she needs a confident handler.  We are not entirely sure of Buttercup's breed mix, but we definitely see walker, TB or Saddlebred in her.  Her mix makes her very versatile as she is w/t/c but could be trained to enhance her movement towards being a gaited horse.  Standing tall she looks full Appendix, parked out she looks full Saddlebred.
She stands for the farrier and ties, trailers and baths.  She has also been out on a trail ride.  She does require year round grain and alfalfa to maintain her weight. Buttercup is not a FINISHED horse. 
Buttercup's adoption fee is $500

About Our Rescue Group...

We are a dedicated team or horsemen (and horsewomen) who are seeking to fill the void for those horses that have no alternatives. Our Mission is as follows:

1) To be first responders and a resource to horses and livestock in cases of abuse and neglect. To provide those animals a safe harbor sanctuary where they will be treated with diginity and love as they prepare for new lifelong home.

2) To serve at risk and medically fragile children, as well as recovering veterans through structured equine experience opportunities.

3) To become a resource to low income families, unable to continue to care for their equine and livestock animals; providing food assistance when possible, or offering rescue rehoming services when possible.
