Adoption Overview $800


Shady is a 14.3hh gelding who came to KHS in early March as a transfer from Georgia. He appears to be well-loved and looks a bit like a Morgan cross. Shady has been ridden western, English, and bareback in the past with several different riders. He would make a lovely partner for a variety of adventures, but I suspect soft hands and some dressage work would really bring out the best in Shady physically. He has received a brief evaluation so check back for more info as we get to know him better. Shady appears to be completely sound with great hooves and a wonderful willing attitude. Contact us today if you are interested in meeting Shady to possibly adopt!
