My story

Eugene is an old soul, with kind eyes. Since his arrival at the Ranch, he has been calm, quiet, and patient. He had minor injuries that required daily treatments, from the semitrailer wreck that took place on October 18th, 2020. Once his wounds healed and he was cleared by our veterinarians to be evaluated under saddle, we came to find that Eugene has spent many hours under saddle. He stands quietly for grooming, tacking, and blanketing. Under saddle we have found that Eugene can be a touch forward, but direct reins and is brave on rides around the Ranch. He is, however, very weak in the hind and will require light riding until he rebuilds his strength. He will require an intermediate rider with quiet hands that can handle a forward mount. He appreciates having his legs stretched after each ride and loves to have his face rubbed. In January Eugene tested positive for Cushings. He will require a daily tab of pergolide for the rest of his life. Mr. Eugene would be an ideal match for an adopter looking for a horse to take on occasional short rides.

Adoption Fee: $350.00
Carrying weight: 170lbs (including tack and rider)
