Description:   Annie is currently in training and preparing for the Thoroughbred Classic Horse Show in December. She is not available for adoption until after January 1, 2016. This sweet and personable mare was not suited to the track but she has shown great talent and potential for Eventing.  Annie is smart. She is a pleasure to work with as she is such a quick learner. She is an excellent mover and is one who will bring home excellent scores in the dressage ring. She is agile and athletic, much like a cat. She is balanced and has a powerful hind end. With a heart of gold, this mare will excel in eventing.  As if these attributes are not enough, she is an absolute love to handle. She snuggles up to all her human friends, including her tiny 3 year old friend.

February 2016 Update: We are pleased to announce that longtime supporter and previous adopter, Amy C. has adopted Annie. Amy contacted us just as soon as she heard about the plight of the Lancaster 19 horses. Amy is an incredibly experienced horse person. She and her husband, horses, and dog live outside of Salt Lake City, Utah. When the weather turns cold and bitter, Amy seeks refuge in Arizona or Nevada. Amy has the time and ability to put serious training and time into a horse. She knew we were inundated with horses and offered to take a couple of horses to further their training and make room for a new horse. This is exactly what she did. Amy adopted Ella, Pippi, and Onyx Be Good. She is currently in Mesquite, NV, where she is working with a trainer developing each of these horses.

Amy reports:
[quote]We jumped Annie for the first time since she came home with me.  My trainer loves, loves, loves her.  And that is saying a lot. I love her too!  She is sweet beyond words and is a forever horse.  I can’t tell you how grateful I am that you entrusted me with her.  She is truly a gift and a horse of a lifetime.[/quote]

Thank you Amy for being such a tremendous supporter of our program and champion of our horses. We look forward to seeing how these horses evolve.
