Adoptable Horses Description

Belly is a 3-year-old (4 in February) jockey club mare. She is VERY sweet and affectionate but also still a baby thoroughbred who needs plenty of work. She never raced and was started lightly under saddle before I adopted her. She is pretty good on the ground, picks up her feet well, and is good in the wash rack. Located in Imperial Beach/San Diego, California.

After adopting her, she needed some rehabbing (from a foot injury with no long-term effects) and lost a bit of her under saddle training. I began lightly riding her again but she began having behavioral issues under saddle. I realized she had some back pain and conducted spinal/neck x-rays. She was diagnosed with some kissing spines and spinal abnormalities.

After all the rehabbing, she is very green and basically needs to be restarted under saddle. The sports medicine specialist who commented on her spinal x-rays believes that after building muscle and taking it slow, she may be able to make a full recovery and be a suitable horse for flat disciplines, or possibly low-level jumping. However, it is uncertain how she will grow into her spine and what her capabilities will be.

Belly needs someone who is willing to take on a project horse, she is certainly NOT FOR BEGINNERS. Ideally, I’d like her to go to someone who has experience with off-the-track thoroughbreds and is willing to be flexible with her future abilities. A good home is an absolute must and because of that, her price is very negotiable to the right home.

She would also be perfectly suitable as a companion horse in a pasture. She is incredibly sweet and I am simply not a suitable owner for her anymore. I would provide x-rays of all four feet/ankles, as well as full spine/neck images.

If interested, please feel free to call or text me at (406-five99-5504) and we can discuss the details further. I will provide everything I have on her. I just want to find this sweet girl a good home. Thanks for reading and I look forward to hearing from you!
