Jake, formerly known as Hip # 113, was rescued from November 2015 Mike’s Auction. This sweet, sweet boy was ridden through the ring and rode well. He is clearly very broke. His rider was quite rough on him, despite this, after showing off Jake’s moves, he dropped the reins and Jake walked away quietly and calmly.
He presented at NexStar with either having blistered legs or scratches. He is quite friendly, attentive and a little on the thin side. Sommer said that he was so friendly, it was hard for her to get a decent picture of him. Now that’s a good problem to have!
December 2015 Update: We are pleased to announce that Castleton Ranch Horse Rescue has offered permanent sanctuary for Jake. This sweet guy had significant arthritis in his knee that he was limited to being only pasture sound.
