Adopted: January 14, 2014
Nigel is the second of our four Arabian geldings to be adopted and he is doing wonderfully at his new home. He is really coming out of his shell! His adopter says "he is fantastic! Love him to bits and he is very easy to catch now". It seems he is really happy to have some people of his own and has made lots of horse-friends too :)
AGE: 9 years old
HEIGHT: Approx 14.2hh
RIDER LEVEL: Experienced
SUITABILITY: Pleasure Riding, Dressage, Endurance, Trails, Companion, etc.
LOCATION: Maple Ridge, B.C.
ADOPTION FEE: FREE to an approved home*
Nigel was rescued from a kill pen in Sunnyside, WA along with three other Arabian geldings. He is 9 years old and around 14.2hh. He was the hardest to load originally, but has come around a lot. He is very sweet and friendly, but also quite easily overwhelmed if too much is asked of him. We were told he had been "saddled and sat on", but have been unable to asses him ourselves. He is sound and healthy and we feel there is an especially nice horse under there, but he will need calm, experienced handler to bring it out in him.
*We would like for potential adopters to use the waived fee on a trainer to ensure that he gets the proper start in his new home.
