Hello! My name is Centavo
I am already neutered and purebred.
DOB - Approx. January 2001
Height - 15 hands
Registration -Not available
Color/Markings - Grey
Arrived: 5/20/2009, returned November 2010
Bio: Centavo was removed from a negligent owner along with many other horses in a rescue effort that involved four agencies. He had been left in a stall for quite some time and was standing on top of 3-4 feet of compacted manure. He was a stallion at the time and had not received good care in quite some time.
History: : His history before coming to BEHS is unknown. While in BEHS, he was adopted in 2009 but returned a year later (through no fault of his own).
Health/Lameness: None known.
Abilities: Centavo knows how to longe at a trot and his foster home is teaching him to walk and canter on the longe. He's a little snorty when getting the saddle blanket put on, but he doesn't mind the saddle at all. He isn't easy to bridle - I don't think he's been bitted until he came here, but his foster home is also working on that. Centavo would benefit from some line driving with him to get him used to the bit. He doesn't mind at all when you hop up and down in the stirrup or even when you swing a leg over. Centavo isn't broke to ride. He doesn't know how to move out with a rider on him. Once mounted, he was stiff, uncomfortable and nervous. He didn't try to bolt or buck or misbehave. He just hasn't got a clue what you are doing. He's going to need someone to keep working with him, but he should come along quickly because he tries so hard. He does know how to lead, load and stand tied. He longes at a walk and trot and carries a saddle while longing.
Other: Centavo is a hot horse, and that’s not going to change. He snorts a lot, but rarely spooks. Although he isn’t doing it in all of these photos, he normally holds his head up high – even when out in pasture. He’s got his eye on everything. But he’s kind and smart, and that counts for a lot. He likes attention but is slow to warm up to new people. He’ll need a confident handler whom he can trust.

In order to adopt, submit:
After BEHS receives a complete application, we will contact you to schedule a pre-adoption inspection. During the inspection, a BEHS volunteer will visit your property or the barn where you will be keeping your adopted equine. She can answer your questions about the adoption process and the organization, and will be taking a few photos and filling out some paperwork so we can ensure the home is safe – the care and comfort of our equines is our first priority
