Holly has received about 30 days of groundwork training and has just started under saddle training at Sweet Carolina Acres During her groundwork training, she learned to lead, trailer load, stand well for the farrier, stand calmly tied, and do several groundwork exercises. She has great ground manners. Since starting under saddle work last week, Holly has made great progress in transitioning from racehorse training to general riding. While of course we can't expect perfection in such a short period, she is showing great potential! We think she would do very well in dressage with continued training. We are often asked about jumping as her size and conformation suggest that she would excel at that. At this point, she hasn't built the muscle strength to jump so we do not yet know if jumping would be a good career for her.
Holly is offered for adoption at $1800 which includes continuing in professional training through Feb 20th. At that point, we expect her to be suitable for an intermediate rider, perhaps an advanced beginner - it just depends on how quickly she progresses. Her adoption fee likely will increase as she progresses in training. Holly can be seen and ridden in Greenwood SC at our trainer's house anytime - just send in an adoption application (no obligation to actually adopt just for sending in the application) and we will get a time set up for you to ride her!
Our rescue is in Seneca SC. Our horses are current on basic vaccines, dentistry, hoof care, Coggins, and are microchipped.
To be considered for adopting Holly, go to www.crossroadsanimalrescue.org and fill out an adoption application.

If you don't hear from us within 2 business days of sending in an application, then call us at 864-972-9994 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also email with any questions about Holly.
