    Default FREE Rescued Saddlebred at Saddlebred Rescue NJ

    SBR are adopting out several Saddlebreds with no adoption fee, contact Pat@saddlebredrescue.com Website forum: http://forum.saddlebredrescue.com/ I have two adopted SBR horses former Amish buggy horses. They make excellent trail/pleasure horses from being on the road, nothing scares them. They will be putting horses down if not placed per Pat as stated on trot.org

    It is not TROT, it is Saddlebredrescue.com, but I could not find that either.

    On trot.org look at Hogan and Pitch Black's threads and on SBR website under Interesting News. Need to contact Pat for list of which horses adoption fee is waived.

    The Hogan gelding ought to have a chance with someone who can work quietly with him, but understands a game horse. He is Harlem's Strictly Business, a well bred horse who showed as a gaited horse at one time. A big, sound horse like that deserves a chance.

    Edited to add- I have pictures on my old hard drive of this horse, in better times. I went to look at him as a sport horse prospect, with a friend, who was the person actually looking to buy. She decided against him-- not his fault- but, at the time, they were asking $8500 for him. These folks live on a highway that I wouldn't want to walk along, let alone drive a horse. The father is, IMHO, NUTS!! He was driving a gelding at the time that his son agreed with me was NOT a safe conveyance. These people are some of the hardest on horses that I have ever met, in my almost 40 years of interacting with the Amish. They also breed a few-- but that is another tale.

    This is really a big- I remember him as being over 16.3- gelding who could be rehabbed into something useful. He is the kind of horse who could fox hunt, or, if the breathing problem is similar to what I have dealt with in other horses, he might be able to be an eventer, etc.

    The black gelding seems like an awfully kind soul. If someone has a Grandma that likes to go for a stroll around the farm, maybe he'd suit.

    I know nothing more about these horses than what has been stated- and I have no connection to them, but I sure appreciate what SBR tries to accomplish, and as you might guess, I am a lover of the breed.

    In any event, it is a shame to see things come to this, but sadly, it does happen.

    I was scheduled to go pick up Pitch on the 15th of this month but just received an email that someone has committed to taking him. Glad he found himself a good home. Anyone know of any sane trail horses available to good home?

    Cool Made My Day !! Thanks for posting the news !

    Hooray for Pitch Black ~~~ SBR must have others you would like for trail riding ? I love Power Ranger and if I needed "A" rather "another" horse to ride anywhere & everywhere~Power Ranger would be my first choice with Esperanza or Lonesome Jones ? my next choices BUT I do not know if they are trail ready ~ only SBR would know. I am sure they would love to work something out with you !

    I am so glad to see this info! I agree with Stars, it is not the horse's fault if somewhere along the way his brain and/or body were overwhelmed. Hogan is the horse that was pulling a buggy 60 miles a day!!

    The SBR rescue group changed these 2 to zero adoption fees as an alternative to their sad decision to euthanatize them if not placed quickly.

    RIP Sasha, best dog ever, pictured shortly before she died, Death either by euthanasia or natural causes is only the end of the animal inhabiting its body; I believe the spirit lives on.

    Both of the geldings who were seeking homes have been placed, and are heading to Kentucky this weekend.

    Thanks to everyone who offered help to these two boys!
