Female Standardbred Horse

Velvet is a super friendly sweetheart. She is an 18 year old brown standardbred mare, approximately 16hh. She is unbroken, but good to handle. Since coming to horse rescue she is loving living with a herd. She is not the prettiest girl in the world, but more than makes up for it with her lovely nature.
Velvet suffers from itch so a home experienced in dealing with itch is important. A home away from the coast and preferably over the ranges or in a cooler environment would be best for Velvet.
To apply to adopt you must have previous experience with horses and be able to adequately house and care for the horse. Your level of experience must be suitable for the horse you wish to adopt. You must have another horse as a companion or a neighbour with horses to provide companionship.
Please contact us by email explaining your situation, and should your situation be suitable for the horse we will speak with you by phone to arrange for you to meet the horse. If the horse is able to be ridden we will also do a riding assessment.
Transport of the horse to your property is at your own cost, although we can help with arrangements.
