Hi, I’m Comet. I am a 2009 Quarter Horse gelding who became unwanted after I had been weaned, sold, and left alone with no friends. I’ve been started under saddle, and I am very friendly. I have good ground manners, trailer well, accept a farrier’s work, am current on vaccinations and deworming.
I was started under saddle at the 2011 Four States Ag Expo, by Jason Patrick and Scott Winfrey. I took to it gladly, just like a well-bred two-year-old should. I come highly recommended by the Rescued to Ride team. I have great potential as an all-around horse, and come from reining champion bloodlines. On the longe line, I was walk, trot, and cantering by voice command by the time I was a year old. I also enjoy working with humans with addictions and developmental disabilities. I help to empower them by being an animal who understands, and showing them that we can influence one another in a positive way!
I became unwanted after I began cribbing because of the loneliness, stress and boredom I suffered as a weanling. Once at FSHR, I was gelded, and then they worked on my cribbing. I was taken off all grain, put on pasture with several buddies, as well as started schooling…strategies to make me need to crib less. The vet was consulted about the possibility of an ulcer, but the possibility was discounted upon consideration of my lack of other symptoms. After many months of turnout with other horses, and having been in training, my cribbing has become a very minor issue because I just don’t need to. I spent the summer of 2011 fostering on a fantastic pasture and have grown in height and breadth.
Facts about me:

Adopt me for: Performance (reining, cutting, etc) or pleasure!
