Horses
We have a number of horses available for adoption and/or sponsorship.  Just scroll down to read about each horse.  

  Please email patricia@serenityequinerescue.com  for more information about any of our horses.



 

 Harley
Harley is a big beautiful Quarter horse gelding.  He is 8 years old and 15.2.  Harley is a buckskin and as you can see from his picture he has gorgeous dapples.  He is really laid back; the perfect trail horse.
Harley came in with his partner Radish. See below.  They have been together for almost all of his life. 

He has been in training since July of this year and is an easy ride.  We ride our horses bitless but he has been trained to take a bit.  

Harley and Radish survived a fire when their owners house burned down to the ground.  We have had them since January of this year and they have both come a long way!

If you want a solid horse who is easy going, you couldn't ask for a nicer boy.  

Radish 
This is beautiful Radish.  She is a chestnut Appendix Quarter horse out of the Peppy San Badger lines.  She is 15.2 and approximately 12 years old.
Although she has not been ridden for awhile she is back working with our trainer Eric.  She still has a ways to go to build her confidence but she is making great strides.

She is a sweet girl who, like her partner Harley, survived a fire.  She and Harley were frequently without food so she gets a little crabby if you try to take her when she is eating.  She is slowly getting over this.

She now loves to be cuddled and loved.  She loves a bath and to be groomed.  She is going to make someone a wonderful partner.

 
He's Peakin'
Peakin is an 8 year old OTTB.  He has not been ridden for over 5 years and is starting to work with our trainer. 

Peakin is a big boy.  He is 17.1 and weighs about 1200 Ibs.  This picture does not do him justice.  When you see him below in the background next to his pal Hulk, you can get a better idea of his size.

Peakin and Hulk have been on pasture with stalls that they could go in and out of at will.  This is what they like.  They are currently being stalled each night and turned out together in the morning but they would rather be outside.

Peakin will continue to work with our trainer and at this point could go in any direction.  We will know more as he continues on with our trainer. 
Hulk 
This awesome Thoroughbred is one of the sweetest boys you will ever meet.  He hasn't had to do much in his life and hasn't been ridden for many, many years.  He is perfectly sound so we will be starting him with our trainer.

Hulk is a beautiful bay 17.2 hand gelding with a very laid back personality.  He is very close to Peakin' since they have been together for the last almost 5 years.


 
 


                       Jay Jay
                     Arabian Mare
                 Adopt or Sponsor
 
JayJay is a 15 hand, gray, registered Arab.  This beautiful Arab mare is very special to all of us at Serenity.  Although she is in her mid twenties she moves out like she is still in her teens!   
JayJay is a very well trained mare with experience in dressage and trails.  She is an absolute jewel!  She does not want to do arena work anymore and gets crabby if she is working inside for too long.
  
She has taught a number of young children how to ride and competed with them at a number of local venues including Donida. 
JayJay no longer wants to do arena work.  She is now retired as a dressage horse and teacher and would love the trails.

She is very sweet and loves attention. JayJay is allergic to Alfalfa but otherwise healthy and ready for a forever home. 

If you would like to sponsor JayJay,  or you are interested in adopting her, please emailpatricia@serenityequinerescue.com to arrange a visit to the farm to meet her!


 
Native Eddie
        Thoroughbred Gelding

           Adopt or Sponsor



 Native Eddie is an 8 year old Off-the-Track-Thoroughbred who has the personality of a puppy.  He is so calm and loves to be cuddled and groomed.  He is going to make someone a very special companion.

Eddie was previously adopted but was returned because he was not being taken care of properly.

He was ridden Western by a novice rider but goes under saddle much better English.

If you are interested in adopting or sponsoring Eddie, please contact patricia@serenityequinerescue.com.

 Sequoia

Yakima Indian Pony Mare

Adopt or Sponsor


Sequoia is a 8-year-old, 14.2 hand Yakima Indian reservation pony mare who was rescued from extreme neglect. With intensive effort she recovered and was adopted out ato a wonderful family and was ridden by a young girl. She subsequently gave birth to Keona, now 4 years old. Unfortunately, circumstances resulted in Sequoia and Keona returning to Serenity, where they are both available for adoption, fostering or sponsorship.

 

Sequoia is very personable, smart and resourceful.  She can be a challenge to keep in the paddock since she seems to know if the gate is not quite closed. Sequoia is well broke but had not been ridden for some time,  however, our trainer Eric has started Sequoia on a refresher course and she is responding well.  She is a fast  learner.

 

If you are interested in adopting or sponsoring Sequoia, please contact patricia@serenityequinerescue.com.

 
Keona

Arab/Yakima Indian Pony Mare

Adopt or Sponsor


Keona, which means daughter,  is a 4-year-old dark bay Arab/Mustang filly.   She is extremely smart and is easily bored. She likes working and having someone to spend time with her. Keona's beautiful movement really stands out at the extended trot and canter.  She has been ridden both English and Western.  Our current trainer thinks she could excel at just about anything.
Our farrier, said he would take her or her mom, Sequoia, in a heartbeat if he could take another horse.  These are two special mares.

Keona stands just over 14 hands at present and will probably mature to be a bit taller.

She has a beautiful head and is quite stunning under saddle.

 If you are interested in adopting Keona, please emailpatricia@serenityequinerescue.com

 to arrange a visit to the farm to meet her!
 KazmeenKazmeen 
Arabian Gelding
 

Kazmeen is a beautiful dark bay Arabian gelding .  He was adopted and returned as the owner could no longer care for him.  Kazmeen is very well trained and has been ridden on trails and in a few shows.  Unfortunately, he was injured when he was very young and is no longer able to be ridden except at a walk around the pasture.  He has never been lame but has a compromised hock.

Kazmeen is a gentle curious boy and loves attention.  He would make a perfect pasture mate as he is kind and enjoys his herd mates.

If you would like to sponsor Kazmeen, or you are interested in adopting him, please emailpatricia@serenityequinerescue.com to arrange a visit to the farm to meet him!

 

KoKo

 Koko is a miniature horse who weighs about 165Ibs.  Now that he has shed out he is almost black.  He stands at 30" and has beautiful comformation.   

Koko has very clubbed front hooves and has to be trimmed by a farrier who does therapeutic trimming.

KoKo came in as a stallion along with his friends and has since been gelded.  He is very sweet and easy to handle.  He really loves to be cuddled.

Because he was in a stall where he could not see out or be with other horses it has taken a while for he and his friends to become socialized.  He is now turned out in a paddock with his friend Miracle (see below)each day and they are getting along great!

KoKo is now ready for his forever home.  It would be wonderful if he and Miracle could be adopted together.  We do not adopt out our miniatures to keep larger horses company.
 Miracle
Adopt or Sponsor 




 Miracle
Adopt or Sponsor
 Miracle is a beautiful 4 year old miniature gelding.  He, like KoKo, was rescued from a 8 * 8 foot concrete stall.  They lived alone with out contact with other horses and little contact with people.
Miracle has been gelded and he is now living in a small herd where he is thriving.
He is 30" tall and weighs about 170lBs.  He is a sweet boy, very smart and clever.  He is best friends with KoKo.

Because of the isolation, Miracle still suffers with some anxiety.  He is easy to handle but will pace at his stall door when in if he gets frightened.  
He and KoKo would be good together.  
 
Blue
In Sanctuary


 Blue is a 6 year old gray Mini gelding who stands about 32" tall.  

Blue is quite a character.  He thinks the farm revolves around him.  He and Stormy are great buddies and one is very rarely seen without the other.

You will see this guy on Facebook fairly often as he is almost always up to something.  Look at that face. Could he loook more innocent? 
 
Stormy
In Sanctuary

 
Stormy is a 9-year-old dappled chocolate/palomino Mini gelding who stands about 34" tall. 

 

Stormy is a very curious and friendly little guy whose sweet personality and expressive face bring a smile to everyone he meets.  

 

Stormy and Blue are being sponsored by our wonderful volunteer Brenda L.  They are both in sanctuary at Serenity. 
 
Little D
In Sanctuary


This wonderful little guy is Little D.  He was rescued from a hoarding situation along with his three friends below.

Little D is 27 and only weighed 100Ibs when he came in and was brought to the farm in the back of Patricia's subaru.

He is an angel.  Almost totally blind after years of no medical care for eye infections, he is so sweet and kind to everyone we think he knows he is in his loving forever home.

Little D is loved by everyone who meets him.  An old soul with lots of life still to live.  He will remain in sanctuary at 

Serenity.


Spirit   
         Arabian Gelding             
Adopted
  Spirit is a stunning gray Arab gelding between 25 and 28 with a big heart and an awesome, sweet personality.  We are sure that he was once someone's very special show horse.  He has perfect manners, is calm, well trained, and has a very special heart.  We are convinced that he is an old soul and knows a lot about the world.

Because Spirit was so emaciated when he came in, he is 16 hands and only weighed 800 lbs, he is just being listed for adoption.  He still knows how to strut his stuff and still has a lot of energy.

Because of his perfect manners and knowledge, he could be someone's perfect riding companion.
 
Shamara

Arabian/Saddlebred mare

Rainbow Bridge 

Meet Shamara, a 34 year-old bay and white pinto Arabian/Saddlebred mare who stands over 15 hands. 

Shamara and her 14-year-old daughter Selena were finally surrendered by their owner to Serenity after more than a year of tireless work by one of our volunteers. They had been living in knee-deep mud for years with no dental or hoof care and were badly malnourished.
 
After several months of mashes, special dental care and farrier work, Shamara is once again healthy and sound.  Shamara has developed Cushings and needs medicine each day.
 
Shamara is one of the horses in sanctuary at Serenity. 

Roland
Rainbow Bridge 

Roland is a 3.5 year old very small gray and white pinto miniature horse.  He is only 26" tall and very fine boned.  He is quite a character.  He loves to pay with balls in the arena and chase his friend.  He also loves to cuddle.

Roland has some minor misalignment of his front legs that can only be seen by ex-ray so needs to be trimmed according to how he wears down his hooves to avoid being sore after trimming and stress on his knees.

Roland suffered an injury to a front leg and after 3 months of rehabilitation it was decided that he would not going to recover fully and his quality of life was suffering.
