Reddy came to the rescue as a stallion with Cheyenne and their foal Rusty. The three were surrendered because thier owner could no longer afford to care for them. Reddy was a bit underweight when he arrived at the rescue. Once he was healthy enough, he was gelded. He does not appear to be gaited. He has had a month of prof training and is a horse that needs a job. Very athletic and likes to go somewhere. He really needs miles and regular riding but will make a good trail horse with some experience. Must have experienced rider that likes a horse with some go to him. He is not crazy, or buck or anything, just likes to go. Very responsive. Age is probably 14-15, about 14.1-14.2hh. Likes attention, easy to catch. Adoption fee $350
Reddy has a good attitude for a horse that was gelded late in life. He gets along well with the other horses in the pasture. He is a very athletic horse and would be well suited to barrel racing. We have been able to put a rider on Reddy. However, he is not a horse for a beginner. He needs someone with experience to get him tuned up and take him to the next level.
River Edge Farm Horse Rescue is a non-profit 501(c)(3) public charity that is owned and operated by folks who have been rehabilitating horses for many years. The rescue consists of 63 beautiful acres in Middle Tennessee where horses of all breeds and ages are taken in and cared for.
We strive to provide the best care possible for every horse that comes to the rescue by beginning with an individual evaluation. Each horse receives vet care (including dental work and vaccinations), hoof care, and a nutrition plan. Nutrition requirements and feeding schedules are developed initially, and then adjusted as the horse progresses. In addition to the basics, some horses have special needs that require long term training in order to make them candidates for adoption.
Our Adoption Process...
Adopting a rescue horse can be a very rewarding experience and some rescue horses require special handling due to their past. References are required for all adoptions. Adopted horses must stay with the adopter for at least one year. After that, the horse may be sold. If there are extenuating circumstances and the adopter cannot keep the horse, it must be returned to the rescue. Adoption fees are based on the age and training of the animal. The fee helps with expenses, but does not begin to cover the costs of hauling, vet fees, feed, and rehab.
