Comet aka L M CYBERGENIC is an owner surrender Standardbred mare born March 2004. Comet stands approx 15hh and is well put together. She is a trotting-bred mare who is broke to drive and last raced in 2007. She is UTD on deworming, teeth and had her three-way before she came into the rescue. She is a curious and intelligent girl who is easy to handle and work around; picks up all four feet, loads and hauls, etc.
She is a gorgeous and sound mare who accepted the saddle and bridle without batting an eye. We would be surprised if she has not been ridden in the past! Comet is an alpha mare and, because of that, can be pretty nervous of her surroundings when being handled by a person she does not have full confidence in.
Folks are often surprised that the herd leaders are the most stressed in unfamiliar surroundings, but since the leaders are the most intelligent ones and in charge of alerting the others of danger, they are always on the lookout. When they form a bond with their person, then they are able to let go of their job and trust that their human will keep everyone safe. This is an amazing and rewarding relationship between horse and rider but is the toughest part for us. Although we form some sort of bond with all of our rescue horses, we try to hold back on a horse like this. It is rough for us and them to gain such a huge amount of trust then send them away.

Comet is a special girl who we really hope will find a loving lifetime partner so she won't have to face separation from the person she calls her leader. Because of this, we are updating her adoption fee to BY DONATION. The adoption money saved can be used for a trainer to help out with getting her going or to cover feed bills during her extended 30 day trial period.
We sure hope somebody gives this brilliant soul a chance. There is an amazing partner in there waiting to be somebody's best friend! Contact us or submit an adoption application online today if interested!
