Amira came to rescue after a rough patch. Her owner has cancer and renter’s of the family offered to care for his three horses (Misty, Break, and Amira). Instead of caring for them, they starved them! When her owner found out their horses were being neglected by the people who offered to care for them they called Safe Harbor for help, and we were glad to be able to assist in their time of need.
Amira is registered. She has been in a show environment multiple times. She is most suited to halter class and she is a registered TWH. Amira has a quirk--her anxiety response is to fold and lay down, so we are seeking a pet, companion, pasture ornament type home for her. She does have gorgeous conformation, but we are not working towards finishing training with her due to her habit of fold-over when she is being ridden. She does not come up, does not kick, does not buck--we just prefer to call her the world's largest fainting goat.
Amira's ground manners are impeccable. A trainer who wanted to take things slow with her could work through Amira's anxiety reaction under saddle. She stands tied, cross ties, loads, leads, stands for the farrier, is very social in the pasture, has been ponied off another horse, has shown halter, and is fine in pasture or in stall. She is mellow by nature in the field and is neither dominant or submissive. She does well with both mares and geldings. Amira's adoption fee is waived! We are simply seeking a quality home that she can call her own, and are not looking for an adoption fee for her.
