Welcome to Horse Illustrated’s weekly installment of the Right Horse Adoptable Horse of the Week, offered in partnership with the ASPCA’s Right Horse program. This week’s adoptable horse is Marie Joelle! Check back weekly for a new featured horse so you can find your Right Horse.
Organization: Kentucky Equine Adoption Center, Lexington, Kentucky
Get to Know Marie Joelle
“MJ” arrived at the Kentucky Equine Adoption Center initially quite pushy and didn’t understand personal space. However, she is a quick learner and within a couple groundwork sessions she was much improved and more respectful of boundaries. Under saddle, MJ is a high energy mare but listens and responds to aids very well.
She has been to 3 off property shows (one being a weekend show) and can still be tense in new atmospheres but is still very rideable. She is currently competing at First Level. She will need an experienced trainer to bring along but is a nice, sound prospect for lower level dressage. *MJ will be competing at the 2022 TIP Championships at the KHP during the week of the TB Makeover*
