Meet Ruger

Hi, my name is Ruger! I am a 9-year-old Saddlebred cross gelding.

Ruger is a level 3 pasture pet. For level descriptions, scroll down on our adoptions page:

Ruger has been reevaluated by our vet. He has significant damage to his withers, presumably from when he was hit by a truck when he was younger; this makes wearing a saddle extremely painful for him. An experienced rider could get by with using just a bareback pad with him, but should avoid any pressure to his withers. He would do best as a pasture pet.

Ruger is easy to catch and handle on the ground, but needs an advanced rider. He does well under saddle for the most part, but offers to buck enthusiastically when going into the canter.

Ruger was started under saddle some time before he came to us, but still needs quite a bit of work. We were told by his previous owners that he was hit by a truck when he was younger, but he doesn't let that slow him down and it doesn't appear to be causing him any issues anymore; he has been cleared by our vet for adoption. He will w/t/c but needs an advanced rider as he is still quite green and may offer to buck at times.
