Fast forwarding to 2016, Hopi is coming along nicely. While slow to trust, she has made good progress. She has spent time in two foster homes and is steadily learning to develop relationships with humans. She can be haltered and has good ground manners. At her current foster home, she is being exposed to a variety of experiences in order to boost her confidence. She regularly goes on walks in the neighborhood, exposing her to cars, dogs, and other horses, and is doing great. Additionally, her skin condition has improved and is easily managed by limiting exposure to the mid-day sun through pasture/stable management and using fly masks.
Hopi is the type of mare that will develop deep bonds with her owner once she trusts her/him. She is ready for her own special person who is willing to make a long-term commitment to patience and daily attention. She will require an advanced handler with substantial experience training from the ground up. She has not been started under saddle, and she is not suitable as a child’s horse at this time.
Adoption fee subject to change based on training. Please refer to website for current information.
