Description: Jasmine is a classy and smart former broodmare who is sound and is currently in training at Bear Creek Stables with the team there. She quickly became a favorite with her kind and gentle personality. Although she was not trained post racing, she is showing every sign of enjoying being ponied on the trail and in the company of other horses and people. A real find with a good head. Don’t delay in completing your adoption application for her. Our good and sound horses go very quickly. She may stay in our program as a future lesson horse. Loves kids!

May 2016 Update: Jasmine has been with us at Bear Creek Stables since November 2015. After giving her the winter off we started her retraining program. Now after quite a bit of arena and ground work we transitioned to the beautiful nearby trails.

Bear Creek Stables is so conveniently situated that no drive is necessary; you can simply walk out and explore thousands of acres of open space right from the facility.

At first Jasmine was ponied out on trail with our permanent stable fixture Storming Runner (Runner) whose job it is to make sure new horses feel secure. After a few test runs with no issues Jasmine went out on her own today and passed with flying colors. She even crossed a stream for the very first time with no fear and enjoys being a leader. This beautiful soul is an excellent prospect for trail or Western Pleasure riding.

August 2016 Update: Recently Jasmine passed the ultimate test for a rock solid trail horse.  She attended the Summit Riders Obstacle Course Clinic with Neigh Savers barn manager Jenny Whitman and turned in a flawless and jaw dropping performance.  As volunteer Karen Read sums it up: “What I love about this mare is her can-do attitude……..scary pendant flags – let me just have a look, yup, it’s no problem. Big flappy tarp, yeah, we’re good. And always the first horse to greet me at the barn!”
