Horse: Lexie, a black six-year-old 13.3-hand pony mare in Simpsonville, Ky.
Organization: Kentucky Humane Society

Lexie is an approximately 13.3hh grade pony mare who is a new arrival. She is an adorable pony with a sturdy build who is ready to start the rest of her life and training journey. She has been handled by humans most of her life (not a feral horse) but does best with a confident handler at the moment to establish expectations and boundaries. She appears sound and is ready for training. She looks to be a great size for a future games pony or small eventer. She also would likely make a great trail partner one day for a can-do trail rider but may not be the slow plodder type due to a sometimes busy personality. Lexie is looking for someone with the ability or the plans to have her started under saddle and trained to ride. Lexie is ready for a job and a purpose. Please check back for updates and photos. Could she be your #righthorse?
