Adoption Organization: Longmeadow Rescue Ranch in Union, MO
La Pie came to Longmeadow in February 2016. She was pregnant and underweight. She has since had her foal and is a healthy weight. We think La Pie may have been started under tack, but she doesn’t seem to know much beyond accepting the saddle. She is also very sweet and easygoing, so she might just be accepting the tack. She is eager to please and enjoys working with people. She is a very intelligent mare and kind. Her training for riding was stared in 2017 at Longmeadow. She has been ridden at the walk, trot and canter in the indoor arena. She was also starting to be ridden outside on the trails. La Pie was then adopted into a home that wasn’t able to keep working with her. She had too much time off, and they weren’t able to successfully restart her. She was returned to Longmeadow and is now in the consistent training that she needs. At this point, she requires at least 3 months of professional training and then an adopter that will continue to work with her regularly to provide mileage with a rider on her back.
