Virginia Range Horses Looking for Homes

We still have a number of Virginia Range mustangs who were captured by the NDA and are in need of permanent homes. These include:

4 halter trained geldings
2 non-halter trained geldings
1 saddle-trained mare
The Franktown 4 (partial band) 
The Lockwood 13 (family led by the black stallion (now gelding) Black Jack and his beautiful roan, dun and grulla mares.)
 
Please email karen@wildhorsepreservation.org if you can help with placement for these wonderful horses!
 

SPLASH

  • Splash is a very beautiful and athletic 3 year old Pilot Valley mare.
  • Splash has been handled and ridden quite a bit. 
  • She is a very gentle, sweet and beautiful mare.
  • She is really easy to handle: catching her out in the field is very easy, she is easy to lead, trailer loads like she was born in a trailer and stands quietly at the tie rail enjoying to be brushed.
  • She tends to start with a bit of an energy burst at the beginning, however after some initial high-spiritness she becomes very light, focused and connected.
  • She is a quick learner and will respect them when she knows where the boundaries are.
  • She is very good with bareback riding: stands still next to a fence and also when getting on her from the ground. 

BUCKY

BUSTER

  • 3 year old Pilot Valley Mustang, unbranded.
  • Dark buckskin gelding, about 15 hands high.
  • He is very kind, and interested in what people area all about. 
  • Energetic and curious horse who is quite sensitive to pressure.
  •  With consistency and reassurance, he becomes confident, and seems very trusting in the human to lead him and keep him safe.
  • Bucky has great potential to be a faithful partner with a sensitive, experienced person.
  • He has had limited training, but can be haltered, feet picked up, led and groomed all over. 
  • Yearling gelding from Fort McDermitt Indian Reservation
  • He can be haltered, knows his hind quarter yields and has been trimmed in hand.
  • Buster is very curious and likes to nibble for snacks.
  • He's very approachable, and ready for lots of new things to learn.
  • Currently around 15 and still growing
  • Isn't a shy horse, but just needs more time spent on his education.
