Horse: Twizzler, a 15-hand 9-year-old red roan Appaloosa mare in Union, Mo.
Organization: Longmeadow Rescue Ranch



Twizzler is an Appaloosa mare with tons of potential. She is stocky and beautifully marked. Longmeadow Rescue Ranch where she resides is starting Twizzler in the training program there. It’s anticipated that she will be a great riding companion with professional training. She is athletic and a great prospect for multiple disciplines. Twizzler has not yet been started under saddle but is smart. At this time she requires an experienced handler on the ground. At her most recent home, she was allowed to get away with some pushy behaviors and is learning to respect her handler’s space. In just a single day of being back at the ranch, she remembered her manners and has been a pleasant mare to work with. Twizzler stands approximately 15 hands, and her maximum weight-carrying capacity is 205 pounds, with the rider and tack combined.
