Paso Fino cross (ungaited)
|Online Adoption Application|
*Stella is suitable for a balanced rider (& tack) weighing up to 140-170 lbs max.
Stella is a young Paso Fino cross mare who was seized by Snohomish County Animal Control in 2014 after she and another horse were found starving and neglected. Stella spent 6 weeks under the care of the county before being released to SAFE. Watching this young horse grow up has been a delight. At first she was shy and quite unsure about humans, but with kind, consistent handling, she’s proven to be friendly, sweet, and easy to catch. We’re most impressed by the bravery and confidence that this horse displays. When faced with something new or strange, she takes a moment to investigate and reassure herself that the scary thing means her no harm. That bravery should suit her well in her future life as a riding horse, as will her smooth and powerful movement. Stella had 45 days training with Joel Conner and returned to Safe Harbor going well at all three gaits. She’s a small thing with a lot of get-up-and-go, and she’s ready for anything! She does not appear to be gaited, so she’s probably not pure Paso.
