Get to Know Adoptable Horse Serious Heat

Serious Heat is a 15-year-old, California-bred Thoroughbred. She never raced and has no published works. She has had 9 registered foals.

Currently sound, Serious Heat is looking for her third career after putting in hard work as a mother. She will need a more experienced rider to get her started back under saddle.

If you are looking for the world’s most perfect trail horse, look no further. Serious Heat has a small, stocky build that screams western and with her calm disposition, she should enjoy a leisurely ride through the woods or farm. She also seems to enjoy going over poles and hasn’t shied away from any of them. Maybe a nice little hunter/jumper course is in her future.

Serious Heat is kind and easygoing with a sensible mind. She gets along well with other mares in the field and seems intelligent. She is a nice mare with a lot left to give her next partner in her new job!
