Sonoma's Story

Sonoma came to HiCaliber as part of a large-scale neglect case when Fallen Horses "Rescue" abandoned their herd and left them to starve. 

Need a cute little English horse to hack around on? Sonoma is a member of the fallen herd (see top left) - 34 starved horses we took in almost one year ago.

She's not been treated very kindly in her past but has the BEST ground manners you can find. Under saddle, she's waiting for the shoe to fall which makes her feel flighty but she's not. She's a safe, solid horse who just needs to be convinced you aren't going to hurt her. As a former dressage horse, she's now working on just positive forward motion. No collecting, no performing, no bit work yet, just be. Zen.

Here's the catch. She doesn't present well to people interested in her because she doesn't know them. She needs someone who she can bond with and trust. She's a great horse who wants a bit of foundation with you. We will waive her adoption fee to the right person who just wants a friend. No hard work, no harsh bits...just be friends with her, sit on her, walk around with her. She will go above and beyond for her person, but convincing a stranger of that will be hard.

She's ready for a partner. She's incredible. Getting chiro today. Teeth done this week. UTD on all. She's about 18-20. Totally rideable, you just gotta let her know you're safe.
