Description: Star was abandoned at a boarding stable after a very poor and short racing record. She went through some hard times and ended up with SAFER after Neigh Savers discovered her after we had just taken another horse in a similar situation. Luckily, Kate Sullivan and her team were there for Star and were able to help. They put her in extensive training and she was adopted but unfortunately returned. Star needs a confident owner who is not intimidated by energy or size.

She is a beautiful girl and very smart. Star can be can be aggressive with horses in a herd. Star is very assertive but yet friendly.  We are looking for that certain special person – Star is a brilliant sensitive soul! We are still searching for her soul mate!

Update August 2019:  We have discovered that Star may have an old injury to her back, namely the Sacroiliac joint SI (connects the spine to the pelvis).  At this time we would recommend her as a companion horse only.  It is possible with back injections and regular body work, she might make a riding horse, but without further diagnostics by a vet, we cannot say for sure.
She is very sweet, easy to handle on the ground. Likes grooming and attention as well as grazing of course.  As you can see, under the care of Neigh Savers’ volunteers Jenn & Amber Star is thriving.  Thank you so much for the excellent care you are providing this mare.
