  • Most suitable home and loanee/owner/sharer

    We are an experienced home and would want casper I go on to similar home. After Casper was diagnosed with the kissings spines we have come to the decision that Casper is and will never be suitable for a ridden home. Casper is a kind gentle horse that’s turns into an extremely aggressive and terrified horse under the saddle. Surgery’s were an option for Casper however I do not feel that it would be the right thing to do, putting him through nearly two years of rehab.
