Meet Tina

Hey there my name is Tina! I am in my 20’s and stand just shy of 14.2 hands tall.
Over the years I enjoyed eating and being a horse where I grew up. No one ever really took the time to train me fancy and just would get on and ride. I didn’t put up much fight and just did it, it wasn’t like it happened much. But eventually my owners were getting more and more horses and would come get me and throw the tack on, shoving the bit in my mouth and banging my teeth with the metal. I learned that if I didn’t come up to people in the pasture and I threw my head really hard when they tried to bridle me that I could scare them or just get left in the pasture. With all the new horses coming I got protective over my food and definitely take lead mare from anyone that tries to push me around. After awhile my owners decided to load me up and haul me to auction. I didn’t know what that meant but they didn’t give me a choice.

That night I was ran through the pen with lots of on lookers and than put back in a stall. Later on after everything was quiet a lady came and talked me. She seemed to like my blue eye and think I was special somehow. I felt a little better and went to sleep that night hoping to see her again. The next morning much to my delight she was back! I was loaded up with several other horses and ended up here where there’s green grass and a brighter future.

From the trainer:
Tina has a story for sure! She came to us in the June auction and was made available for our adoption event in July directly after her training evaluation. Unfortunately after being adopted she has returned to us because she had more issues than they were able to handle. As trainers here we try to do our best to give each horse the specialized time they need even though our time tends to be spread between 20+ horses at any given point. We have been working with Tina on catching easily in the large pastures and she hasn’t given us any troubles for awhile. We do have her alone because of her being extremely dominant especially over food. We have also worked some on bridling and are hoping it’ll all show in time. I hope that even though she needs some time someone will be willing to work with her or even let her live out her days in a pasture. Tina does ride and we have taken her out on the trail with other horses and that seems to be where she is most comfortable. She seems to be more timid and a follower under saddle.
