Adoptable Horse: Bramble, a 13.1hh 10-year-old black mare
Organization: Longmeadow Rescue Ranch, Union, MO

Get to Know Bramble

Towards the beginning of 2019, a wild Bramble arrived at Longmeadow Rescue Ranch. It was obvious that no one had handled Bramble. She was unfamiliar was the human touch, as well as the love and care humans could provide. With patient handling by staff and volunteers, Bramble discovered that humans are not so bad.

With her inquisitive personality, she has now moved successfully through the groundwork program! She lunges at all three gaits both directions and knows how to disengage her forehand and hindquarters. The once untouchable mare has become a sucker for love from the staff and visitors. Bramble has completed 60 days of training under saddle, however she will require a professional trainer to continue her progress. Due to poor saddle fit, Bramble can be protective and reactive to her back. She will require an adopter that will pay close attention to proper saddle fit in order to continue building her trust and confidence under saddle. She would be an ideal pony to train for pulling a cart, too!
