Organization: Humane Society of North Texas in Fort Worth, Texas
Get to Know Clara
Meet Clara! This tall beauty will light up your day when you come to spend time with her. She will walk right on up to you in the pasture to greet you! She is sweet and elegant and has the dearest nicker. She arrived at the Humane Society of North Texas needing some extra calories, as most thoroughbreds do. Although she has a lip tattoo, the rescue has been unable to find a match on her past and therefore does not have much detail on her history. Clara’s time at the Humane Society of North Texas has mainly been spent getting her weight to a healthy level.
In consultation with Petrey Horsemanship Training, she is starting to figure out what saddle work will look like for this girl! She has a huge, floating stride that will be amazing under saddle. Clara knows her manners, but she can be a little pushy on the ground—she is just so curious on everything happening around her! She responds well to rope halters and assertive handlers. She’s a big girl who wants to see the world. She is up-to-date on her vaccinations, Coggins, dental and farrier care, and she is microchipped.
