Tripp is a 12 year old Belgian draft gelding who is with us for training from the MSSPA. Tripp was part of the “neglected 20,” a herd of horses that was seized from poor conditions in July. Tripp was severely neglected upon arrival, but received the best care possible from the folks at the MSSPA. Now that he is healed physically, Tripp is ready to start his training. It is believed that Tripp has had some formal training in the past, but many of his experiences were most likely negative. Tripp is very shy and nervous around people, so we will start slow and help him learn to trust humans again. We look forward to being a part of Tripp’s new lease on life. Please check back for more updates as we continue to get to know this gentle giant.
