Welcome to Horse Illustrated’s weekly installment of the My Right Horse Adoptable Horse of the Week, offered in partnership with The Right Horse. Mendora is this week’s adoptable horse. Check back weekly for a new featured horse so you can find your #righthorse.
Organization: Longmeadow Rescue Ranch
An Arabian and Quarter Horse mix, Mendora is a sweet, baby faced gelding who has completed extensive groundwork training and has now begun the next step of his journey, under saddle training! A teenage lesson student at Longmeadow Rescue Ranch has taken Mendora on as a project, and with the help of a trainer there, he has become an enjoyable ride. He is currently being ridden at all three gaits in the arena and has even begun riding around the ranch. We have found that Mendora can be anxious under saddle and needs a rider who is confident enough to keep his mind at ease. Conformation wise, Mendora is a very short-backed horse and therefore will not fit most western saddles. Thus he will likely be an ideal match for English disciplines. He will require an advanced rider at this time to continue his training and build his confidence. His maximum carrying weight, including tack and a rider, is 150 lbs. Could he be your #righthorse?
