Scarlett first came to SAFE in 2010, one of three horses we took in from an Animal Control seizure. We were able to quickly rehabilitate her and find her an adoptive home. Two years later, her adopter began experiencing health problems that would make it impossible for her to care for Scarlett. She was rehomed three times over the next year, but for Scarlett, the third time WAS the charm, and she became part of a family in which she was loved, valued, and well taken care of. Unfortunately, after a year in her new home, we were contacted and told that Scarlett was going to need to be rehomed yet again. This time, we felt we owed it to Scarlett to bring her back into SAFE and give her a fresh start. Scarlett has a lot of training and is a kind and gentle mount, a lovely mare who adores children. Scarlett found her forever home with SAFE’s barn manager, Lori M, who fell in love with her while working at SAFE. This is truly one of the best homes we could imagine for our sweet senior girl. She not only has a loving human family but Lori has been able to introduce Scarlett to her other horses. Scarlett’s best buddy is Dakota, a handsome black and white gelding who is a kind friend to her. She has a huge pasture to move around in, plus Lori plans to keep her busy on the trails. We enjoyed seeing Lori and Scarlett at the 2016 SAFE Benefit Horse Show, where the two competed in Western Pleasure and the costume class.
