Horse: Hawk, a 21-year-old 15.1-hand pinto American Saddlebred gelding in Lexington, Ky.
Organization: Kentucky Equine Adoption Center

Hawk is a lovely gentleman who staff at the Kentucky Equine Adoption Center does not think has ever been ridden before. He is very easy to handle and learns best when given time and patience. We have started introducing him to a rider’s weight and to a saddle and bridle. Hawk is a very calm horse, and after a little time, he could make a nice riding horse.
