Adopted: November 24, 2015
Harvey has been doing great at his new home so far and is absolutely adored by his adopter. She says he is a great horse and that he has been gaining more weight and she has been doing a bit of lunging with him to build his muscle. He is going to look like a whole new man soon!
Thanks again Ashleigh for giving this boy a loving home. We are so happy for him and can't wait for more updates and to hear all about your adventures!

Harvey is an owner surrender from Osoyoos who was given up due to his owners failing health and through no fault of his own. He is a very sweet 19 year old unraced Thoroughbred gelding (no tattoo) and is a big boy who stands approx 16.2hh. Harvey is sound with no visible blemishes and no prior injuries. We were told he is UTD on shots. He is very quiet and such a cuddle bug it was hard to get away from him for photos.
We heard from one prior owner who informed us that Harvey is well-broke and best suited for a intermediate rider. She noted that he has been ridden on trails, in the arena, on quiet roads and has jumped and is a very lovely mount. We also received an email from Thalia who used to run Second Chance Horse Rescue. She informed us that Harvey was adopted through her rescue back in late 2012/early 2013. She stated that he is very well-broke and told us that he used to school/show jump up to 3'6. She also noted that he is extremely talented with his changes, side pass, etc and that he is safe for intermediate and even beginner riders.
Sadly, Harvey has seen some hard times and is currently quite thin and needing TLC. That said, he really is a lovely boy with a sweet personality and lots of history. We know he can shine again and we sure would love to find him a final forever home who can give him lots of love and care. He has already melted our hearts and we know he will make an awesome horse for someone!
He is located in Maple Ridge and his adoption fee has been reduced to $300 as he still needs more TLC. Please contact us or submit an adoption application today if interested!
