Novalee (AQHA Lil Badger Hen)'s Story

Novalee was saved from slaughter when HiCaliber rescued her from Ontario Auction on March 29, 2016.

Update: July 21, 2017

It is just unimaginable that Novalee is still with us! This papered AQHA girl is nothing short of amazing! She is a seasoned Parade horse now, absolutely bomb proof, willing and able to leap tall buildings in a single bound….. No, not really but we sometimes get carried away!  

This girl is just wonderful! She is trustworthy and safe no matter where you want to take her. She is great on trails, busy streets, loading and unloading, grooming, tying, tacking and even goes bitless and bareback. She is literally perfect!

Don’t let her prior behavior make you shy away. She needed training and took to it readily. She has never taken a false step since!

Update:  April 10, 2017

This rough around the edges "Badger Hen"….. is now a refined lady.  Novalee realized that if she acted like a giant brat under saddle, bucking, kicking, bolting, you name it – she could get out of work. Well, we aren’t down with that so we sent her to a trusted cowboy and trainer, and we are very impressed with the results!  Novalee learned that her that life is actually better when you let someone take you for a long trail ride and give you some loving.

By the end of training, Novalee was able to trail ride for miles bareback and in a rope halter. She is now extremely responsive to voice cues and is easily maneuvered in just a rope halter. Novalee is back on the market and we can't wait to see the places she will go. We recommend an advanced and confident rider for Novalee because while she is now refined she is still too smart for her own good and may try to test her limits.
