My story

Meet AJ! This appaloosa mare came to Longmeadow as an owner surrender at the beginning of 2021. She was one of the more nervous mares in her group, but after some time at the ranch she has started to settle in. Our trainer has evaluated AJ under saddle and found that she may have had some training in the past. However, AJ was very rusty on these skills. Upon further evaluations during training and vet exams, we found that AJ`s conformation was preventing her from remaining comfortable when ridden. AJ is happy being a pasture companion and could be used as a groundwork agility horse. Our amazing ground work team has provided her with a strong base, teaching her the basics of lunging, yielding, backing up, and many other useful ground work skills! AJ gets along well with both mares and geldings. She is well behaved for the vet and farrier. She has lived out in the pasture 24/7 as well as in a stall/paddock set up. We are confident she will acclimate well to her a new home. Let us know if you want to meet AJ!
