2011 Arab gelding
Stanley arrived in September 2017 through collaboration with the Hooved Animal Sanctuary (HAS) of Vermont. Due to neglect, this 14 h Arab had been removed from his previous owner and arrived at HAS in December 2015. At the time, he was a stallion in poor body condition who had very limited handling. After the court case was decided 6 months later, HAS was officially able to assume ownership. Stanley was gelded and his training could finally begin.
Due to the good work put in by the crew at HAS, Stanley now has excellent ground manners and cross ties, trailers, and stands for the vet and farrier. He has done a lot of work in the roundpen, has been saddled, and just recently had someone on his back for the first time. This cute little guy is a quick learner and is a bit of a ham with his friendly, laid-back personality. He has lovely gaits and is a clean slate ready to go in any direction with his training. Stanley will be available for adoption through the Hooved Animal Sanctuary. We look forward to working over the winter to further his skills as a riding horse--keep an eye on this cutie!
