ADOPTED!! by Lucinda C of Duvall WA
Shiloh is the daughter of Miah, who was rescued from a neglect situation while pregnant. She lived with her previous owner her entire life and has never been neglected or mistreated. Shiloh is a very friendly and curious filly who is definitely an “in-your-pocket” pony! She has a very sturdy build, with excellent feet and teeth. She has an outgoing personality and is very engaged with people, even new ones. Shiloh belonged to a woman who was diagnosed with cancer, facing radiation and chemotherapy. Because of this, her ability to care for her horses became increasingly limited, and rather than let any harm befall any of her animals, she asked for SAFE’s assistance in finding new homes for three of her horses. Shiloh became a SAFE horse in October 2011. She was sent into training to be started under saddle and graduated with honors in January 2012. Shiloh stayed in training with Brittney Stewart of B&D Training and made a lot of progress both on the ground and under saddle. She’s been schooled over fences and shows a lot of ability and enjoyment for jumping. She competed successfully at the schooling show level in hunters, dressage and mounted trails. She was described as “a light, responsive, earnest, brave and honest horse” and demonstrated an ability to accept a new rider with few qualms. It was only a matter of time before Shiloh’s perfect person came along and she was adopted.
