Get to Know Adoptable Horse Aloha Makuakane

“Aloha” last raced on July 7, 2023, and retired with a left knee chip and slab fracture.

He is a good boy with a fun personality and is respectful of his handlers. Aloha is currently turning out with other geldings and does well while he is out with his friends. He is quiet in his stall and doesn’t cause any issues.

Once properly healed, Aloha will be suitable for riding the flat: western, trails, dressage, etc. He has a quick turn of foot and likes to get going, so he may be best suited for an intermediate or higher level rider at this time. A fun horse to ride, Aloha is willing to do most anything, but he does need to work on braking and steering.

Aloha can be energetic but is respectful of his handlers and is good for grooming and handling. Do note that he is a cribber, but is controlled with a strap.
