Hello! My name is Gwen
I am in need of an experienced adopter and rideable.
Gwen was given to the rescue with a pony named Emma by owners who could no longer afford horses. As a well-broke pony, Emma was adopted out immediately. Gwen was healthy when arriving at the rescue, but has put on few pounds and is looking better, now. She is a small Appaloosa.
We have been able to put a saddle on Gwen and ride her. However, she acts like she has been allowed to get away with a lot over the years, and she needs some work on her manners. She is not currently a kid-safe horse. She needs some consistent work and attention. She has been getting much friendlier and shows good promise.

Rescue Group Info...
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.
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.
