Shady is a 14.3-hand gelding who came to the Kentucky Humane Society in early March as a transfer from Georgia. He appears to be well-loved and looks a bit like a Morgan cross. Shady has been ridden western, English, and bareback in the past with several different riders. He would make a lovely partner for a variety of adventures, but soft hands and some dressage work would really bring out the best in Shady physically. Shady appears to be completely sound with great hooves and a wonderful willing attitude. Could he be your #righthorse?
