Welcome to Horse Illustrated’s weekly installment of the My Right Horse Adoptable Horse of the Week, offered in partnership with The Right Horse. Simco is this week’s adoptable horse. Check back weekly for a new featured horse so you can find your #righthorse.



Horse: Simco, a 15.1-hand 29-year-old bay American Saddlebred in Howell, Mich.
Organization: Horses’ Haven

Simco is a wonderfully sweet horse to have around. He has been ridden in the past, but due to arthritis and a bowed tendon in the right front, he is retired from riding. Nowadays, he is quite happy to watch the goings-on around the farm and interact with everyone who comes to visit him. He is just so friendly, easy to catch, and loves to be groomed. He has been pastured with mares and geldings and gets along well with either; however, he would do best with geldings only. Simco is such a fun, outgoing character! Could he be your #righthorse?
