Get to Know Adoptable Horse Barbie

This beautiful little mare from Wild at Heart Horse Rescue in California is the perfect family horse. Gentle and kind, this adorable little lady is spectacular on the trail as well as in the arena. Barbie will make a great first horse for a child that is ready to move up from a lesson horse. She is up to date on everything and will be microchipped upon adoption.

A quick note from Barbie’s trainer at Wild at Heart Horse Rescue:

“Definitely shows signs of extensive previous training. She is neck-reined and has lead changes — they’re rusty but they’re there! Goes on trail both alone or in a group but prefers the company of another horse while she’s out.”
