Welcome to Horse Illustrated’s weekly installment of the My Right Horse Adoptable Horse of the Week, offered in partnership with The Right Horse. Stewart is this week’s adoptable horse. Check back weekly for a new featured horse so you can find your #righthorse.
This week’s Adoptable Horse, Stewart, is looking for a home to call his own. Although he has been ridden, saddle work doesn’t seem to be his strong suit. However, he excels at groundwork and would be a fun partner or companion for someone who wants to compete in ground obstacles or other activities that don’t involve riding.
Calling all Trekkies!
His namesake, Patrick Stewart (aka Capt. Picard from the famous Star Trek series), was known for his personal charisma and intelligence. The equine Stewart has similar qualities. He is known as the horse who like to give “hugs.” He is also brilliantly smart, learns quickly, and wants nothing more than to do the right thing.
Stewart’s Perfect Match
Stewart will need an adopter who is patient, fair, and soft but who also knows their way around a horse. He’s not for a beginner because he needs a confident and competent leader who can help him through the scary things in life such as deworming, farrier visits and meeting new people. Is Stewart your #righthorse?
