Adoptable Horse: Greta, a 15hh 22-year-old bay mare
Organization: Heart of Phoenix Equine Rescue in Shoals, West Virginia

Get to Know Greta

Greta is a lovely mare looking to find her perfect match. Greta is competent, youth suitable, trail ready, and is working towards going to her first show. She is a Kentucky Mountain Horse/Saddle Horse cross with a smooth gait and great cadence. She hasn’t been spooky, is great with farrier, loading and hauling, and is learning to stand at the mounting block. Greta needs a very specific home with a routine and an intermediate rider, or could be in a lesson program with the right instructor. Consistent work is best for Greta. Her fosters absolutely love her and know you will too.

If you are looking for your next partner that’s smoothly gaited, and does well on the trail and in the show pen, she could be your girl! Her trainer says: This lovely gaited mare is youth suitable, trail rides and is great in the show pen.

Greta has a great personality, enjoys being with her person, and loves being groomed. She gets nervous in a stall if it is completely closed, and asks that you be patient when bridling but is learning to put her head down when asked. She’s good standing tied, trailering, and farrier. UTD on all vaccinations, coggins, worming and farrier work.
