Copper

Copper is approx 13 years old and is a been there done that type of horse.  He leads, loads, stands for grooming, farrier and rides.  He is currently at a foster home so you ,must have an approved application to go see him.  Copper is a Quarter Horse-type, 15 hands.  Copper is generally a relaxed, cooperative guy and not spooky. He ties, leads at the walk and trot, and crosses obstacles like poles and tarps. He stands quietly for grooming and tacking. He stood still for mounting, had a prompt whoa and displayed a smooth jog. He was balky about moving forward, but he did not offer to bolt, buck or rear. Copper is a cribber and seems to do best when given considerable turnout time on grass pasture. He is easy to catch and gets along well with other horses.
Copper is available for $750.00 - get your application in now!!



Montana

Montana is being used as a fundraiser.  We are currently waiting on DNA testing to see exactly what he is and if everyone is correct.  At 15 years old, he stands for farrier, grooming, bathing, loads into a trailer and rides!  We feel he may have exceptional training, but need someone more qualified to say for sure

Liam is a doll!!!  He came in as a stallion, but has now been gelded.  Even at 18 he was as calm as could be before he was castrated!!  He is a big love bug and is wonderful in everything.  He still has healing to do until he is castration is completely healed so won't be available for a bit.

Liberty is a 2003 AQHA mare who has come to us to find a great home.  She was trained several years ago but hasn't been messed with much since then.  We are working with her to see what she knows, so watch for updates!!  At approx 15 H and 1400 lbs she's a big girl!

This girl is a lover!  She loves attention, she however doesn't realize how big she is and how much space she takes, so we are working with her to teach her to give us a little space and to give to pressure.  This girl is a doll and will make someone the horse they are looking for - she just needs a little love!!

Champion Country Pleasure - 1 previous owner.  This boy is an orphan foal who was never introduced to the herd, so will need to learn.  6/9/16 He has now been out in the paddock with two small ponies and has come so far - a total turn around from how he was.  Great prospect for someone wanting a trained show horse!!!!

6/27/16 We've had several calls on this boy - I can't believe he is still here!  Will post more video tomorrow when he is ridden again, as he is being ridden consistently and just gets better and better!  What a boy!

8/9/16 This boy has made a complete turn around.  He is out with two ponies and doing great - he talks to the other horses across the fence and does great.  We will turn him out with another horse soon but don't expect any problems.  He is so very smart and just a lover to be around.

Bitsy

posted Nov 25, 2015, 11:26 AM by Animal Protection   [ updated Mar 14, 2017, 10:45 AM by Indiana Horse Rescue ]

Bitsy is a 25 year old former-broodmare who has excellent ground manners, easy to catch, loves to be groomed and stands quietly for the farrier. She has been with her current foster family for over six months. At her foster home, Bitsy has been longed, gone over ground poles, walked over and under tarps, stepped up on pedestals and very lightly ridden. Bitsy is well-preserved for her age and still maintains her weight easily on pasture during most of the year and on grass hay in the winter. She's a friendly, social mare (both with people and other horses) just waiting for a permanent place to call her own.

7/15/16   Bitkana (Bitsy) is a 26 year old former-broodmare from Polish-Arabian racehorse bloodlines. We were told she was trained to race, but never made it to the track. Bitsy has excellent ground manners, is easy to catch, loves to be groomed and stands quietly for the farrier. She also accepts clipping and bathing. She has been with her current foster family for about a year now.

This mare is quite the looker who just floats across the field.
3/12/17 Meet Bitkana! Bitkana (barn name Bitsy) is a registered Arabian Mare who has been waiting several years for an adoptive home. Bitsy is very personable, has great ground manners and loves to be groomed. Bitsy has been very lightly ridden at her foster home, but since she will be turning 27 in May 2017, she is probably most suitable as a pasture companion. As such, her adoption fee is a very reasonable $200. Check out these photos of her learning new tricks last Summer and then fill out an application if you are interested in adopting Bitsy!
