Triple Bliss is a 2001 Standardbred mare who stands approx 15.2hh with an athletic build. Her prior owners bought her in January 2014. They took her home extremely malnourished and thin, but she has since blossomed into a beautiful mare under their care. Unfortunately, once they got her healthy they realized she wasn't the right horse for them. She has a kind eye and a sweet demeanor, but was too much for her 11-year-old handler and has come in to the rescue to find a more suitable home.
Triple Bliss last raced in 2008 and earned $87,000 in her career. She retired sound and does not appear to have any blemishes from her racing days. She loaded and hauled well, was good to26nbsp;She loaded and hauled well, was good to handle and lead, is getting along with the other horses, has a nice attitude and seems to have good ground manners. She is UTD on teeth and worming.
This girl is really sweet and really tried. It is our opinion that she has been ridden in the past but that she was handled very roughly. She was very well-behaved, but you could tell she was waiting for something bad to happen. Her mouth was quite sensitive and she over-responds to a very light touch, likely due to being man-handled previously. That said, she started to relax after a few minutes of praise and pets. She would be a great candidate for bitless, but really just needs someone who is experienced and gentle in their well. She will make an amazing partner for the right person!
