Our sweet Jacob is ready to meet his human!
He is a primarily easy-going guy who would thrive in a home with an intermediate rider who is looking to ride frequently – because he is still green and learning boundaries, he will do best in a home where he is in regular work. He has proven to be level-headed on walks outside the arena and quite brave when faced with new and unfamiliar circumstances, which makes us feel that his ideal situation would involve being someone’s trail partner.
Admittedly, he is not the most well-built horse. His confirmation is best suited for easy pleasure riding versus extreme athletic endeavors — he would not do well running barrels, jumping, or on intense trails. But this does not mean that he cannot be a great partner for someone looking to take casual trail rides or do some simple flat work.
We love Jacob’s pumpkin-pie color, and the perfect whipped cream dollop star in the middle of his forehead.
We love his relationship with pasture-mate Edward, and how even though the two are joined at the hip, he throws no fit when removed from his buddy.
And we love how far Jacob has come since arriving at SAFE. Now, he’s ready for the next part of his journey.
Jacob stands for the farrier and vet, trailer loads and ties. So if you’re Team Jacob, come meet him today!
