Organization: Kentucky Humane Society, Simpsonville, Kentucky
Get to Know Rebecca
Rebecca arrived at Kentucky Humane Society as a transfer from Heart of Phoenix Equine Rescue not long after they rescued her and several of her kids where she had been living for the last ten years or so with the bare minimum of care. The intake info given to them stated that she was an Appendix Quarter Horse mare around 20 years old, but after an evaluation ride it seems Rebecca had some secrets about her family tree. She offered to slow gait a bit under saddle, but when prompted forward she also has a nice trot. Her exact breed makeup will remain a mystery.
Rebecca is not startled or surprised by much of anything so far. She was polite to tack up, stood well for mounting, and rode off without any fuss or theatrics. Rebecca doesn’t seem to have much in the way of “fine tuning”, but she should be able to provide plenty of joy to someone looking for an uncomplicated, easygoing mare to ride with friends for a stroll on the trail or trek around the farm.
