Adoptable Horse: Mystery, 4-year-old 14.3 hh bay Arabian gelding
Organization: Wild At Heart Horse Rescue, Lancaster, California

Get to Know Mystery

Mystery is a kind, calm four-year-old who is an easy and fun horse to work with. He is halter broke, leads with a slack line, free lunges, and is learning all three gaits with physical and verbal cues. He stands at the hitching post to get groomed or braided and enjoys every minute. His first time ever soft tied for grooming, he chose to stand with a slack rope for over 15 minutes. He’s still getting used to the hose for bathing but as the temperatures rise, he is understanding the benefit of a nice spraying down. He’s exploring the feeling of the bareback pad being tightened around his girth to prepare for his first saddle. The next goal is to have him pack his saddle and pony around the ranch. This horse is almost ready to take to the next step and would love to meet the person who will take him the rest of the way. Many folks want to be the first in the saddle, so if you’re that rider or you have a trainer you love, he’s your next horse. The staff at Wild At Heart Horse Rescue can’t say enough good things about this horse. Come meet Mystery and fall in love!
