(Updated 6-19-18)  Bunny is in the process of being DNA tested.  With work she is cantering better on the right lead and did take a cue.  On the left she wanted to swap on the back in the corners.  She may be a candidate to have her hocks injected.  We have done this in other cases and it was successful.  We are looking for a donor to sponsor her injections.  We will have her xrayed prior to this procedure which the rescue will take care of.  She is less nervous than a year ago with work and being in the program but we feel these steps will relax her more.  She has excellent ground manners and after being in the Rurgers program we think that helped this mare.  We still beleive she is headed to be a good Academy horse and more than just a lesson horse.  She is not for beginners but she is not tricky either.  Brianne and Nealia like this mare. XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX (Updated 2/15/17)  Bunny has been donated for 3 months to the 2017 Rutgers Equine Program where for 3  months the horses will be worked by the students primarily from the ground.  There will be a concluding event on April 29th from 10 am - 5 pm in New Brunswick, NJ where the students will present the horses and the public can come and visit the rescues that are available for adoption.  If interested please contact us for details.  This horse was sponsored for this program by lifetime Saddlebred owner and rider Mary Elias from Langhorne, PA. XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX (Updated 1/12/2017)  SBR Bunny is a 10ish year old chestnut mare that stands 15.2 hands. Bunny does three gaits but does need a little work on cues and relaxation. We purchased this mare from our KB Bruce and she came in thin. This mare seems to be a horse that does better when worked on a regular basis (doesn’t everyone) I feel she might be a cute mare for the academy division if she was given half a chance. Bunny has smooth gaits that allow riders to maintain good leg position. While Bunny is not real high headed she is very cute and pleasant to look at. Brianne and several of my older riders have ridden her and done well. Bunny is very kind but does get nervous at this point, we feel she just need work and kindness as I am sure her life has not always been easy.
