Aurora

(Previously named Dynah)

Aurora came to us TERRIFIED of people. Anything that moved like a whip or sounded like a cattle prod sent her into hysterics. As young as she is, it was heartbreaking to see such fear already instilled in her.

This drop-dead gorgeous filly has had a rough road so far and it has clearly taken a toll on her. She spent quite a bit o[..]

Anvil

Anvil is a horse that will test a new rider.  If you pass, you can ride him through the gates of hell in supreme fashion. If you don't pass, you just may be dusting off your jeans for another go 'round. Just being honest here (that's what you like about us, right?), if you can't ride, this cowboy pony isn't for you!

He neck reins, side passes, moves off your leg, drags calves, o[..]

Ransom

Ransom has done the “auction house shuffle” from Montana to Kentucky to Ohio, plus some. It has taken a toll on him mentally, so we are currently letting him decompress and recover before we think about placing him in a home.

While we have a good handle on who Random is and what his issues are, we are looking for a owner that is interested in developing a relationship with him. [..]

Chuck

Chuck is a well bred QH gelding.
HERDA and HYPP N/N.

He ties, leads, loads, etc. He is a beautiful mover with suspension and reach... a variety of disciplines could be in his future!

He is suitable for advanced handlers/riders only and is a project.

Lacey

Lacey is a beautiful, smart mare that came to us from Whispering Woods Farm in Maryland! We collaborated with them to help two horses, our Newt and their Lacey. They are a rescue that does really well with the hard keeping seniors, and we enjoy bringing along the young horses, so we had a rescue switcheroo!

Thanks to their willingness to not only pitch the idea but drive the hor[..]

Rex

Rex is an Icelandic X gelding. He is as cute as a button! 

He has been to Equine Affaire and handled all of the hustle and bustle with ease, but is still shy around strangers.  He is looking for an owner that is looking for an project, as he has been on the back burner here at the rescue (our pony rider volunteer has been out of commission) so finding him a home with someone who[..]

Raven

Raven is a sweet girl with quite a bit of get up and go for her age!
She has a good handle and is not for beginners.  She originally came from out west, has done cow work, and has been used on a trail riding string.  The dude ranch gig isn't her favorite... beginners aren't really her jam (unless doing lead line classes at fun shows... then she’s a rockstar!).  If you have good control of your[..]

Coach

Coach came into our program a couple of years ago and was adopted by a lovely family that fell in love with him instantly.  Sadly, their life situation abruptly changed and they were unable to keep Coach.

Coach came back to us in excellent condition.  He is healthy and up to date on everything.  We have been riding him and getting him in shape, and he is proving to be a hard wor[..]

Indy

Indy is a Quarter Horse type mare (maybe some Arab in there?) that came in as a neglect case from Lawrence County, Ohio.

She is currently very underweight and has a long road ahead of her.

We are accepting donations toward her care and are in need of chopped alfalfa and alfalfa cubes at this time.

UPDATE 10/1/19:

Boone

Boone is a very smart, very sensible young man!
He will be 2 in the spring, so has not been started under saddle yet, but is a quick study and picks up on things at lightning speed!
He was castrated here at the farm and is currently turned out with a variety of different horses.

Boone stands well for the farrier, ties, leads, loads, and will stand to be saddl[..]

Lily

Lily has done mounted shooting, ranch sorting, contesting, and drill team.

She enjoys going fast and would not be well suited for western pleasure or other slow activities.  Unfortunately, she was barrel raced a bit much in her past, so high pressure situations where she is push push pushed are no longer her favorite. She enjoys swimming (with or without a rider) and is a trail [..]

Crockett

Sometimes when you have a pony that looks like he’s straight out of the Wild West, you’ve got to humor him and pretend you’re scanning the horizon for buffalo.

Crockett is a 6 year old pony gelding. Our guess is that he has some Paso in there, but it’s hard to say. He is not gaited. This handsome guy stands[..]

Bonnie is an AQHA registered mare (Bonnies Last Chance).
She came to us with rain rot, skinny, and with unkempt feet.
She is recovering well, gaining weight, and now has healthy skin!

This filly has a great brain... nothing upsets her and she is very sensible and quiet.

She will be adopted out to a home that has experience training yo[..]

Fergie

This mare has done 4H and fun shows her whole life.
The kids grew up and moved away, so she’s been perfecting the lazy life since then.
We have ridden her plenty and she is very broke and simple to ride, but will need to be dialed back into the program before she will be ready for show season again!
Easy to catch, ties, doesn’t get bullied in the field, etc.

Buck

Buck has been a friendly pet his whole life. The old owner’s neighbor kids allegedly sat on him in the field, but he never provided him with a formal education.
That said, Buck is now ready for a new owner to take it to the next level! He ties, stands for the farrier, loads, etc.

He is a lovely mover and would make a great jumper or dressage mount!

Chickadee

Chickadee is a prime example of the shuffle that horses in the slaughter pipeline go through before landing at a slaughter house.

The farthest back we can trace (without bringing in the CIA) leads us to the fact that someone rode this little mare, in an effort to show her off at auction, until she was dripping with sweat. She was then auctioned off only to be bought b[..]

Peggy is an 11 year old TWH mare. She is SO FRIENDLY! Used previously as a lead line horse for the grandkids, she never got much more of an education than that.

Since arriving at Bella Run, she has been gaining weight and recovering from being sick (after the auction). It finally looks like she is out of the woods and is ready to continue her under saddle training!

Slick is an exceptional horse. He was donated to our program and will be rehomed under our contract with a fee that will go towards to help other horses in our program.

Slick is sane, sound, exceptionally friendly, and extremely well mannered. He has done a little of everything and excels at many different things.

We will update her page when there is something to say! For now she is just being quarantined and taken care of. She also bumped her eye at the auction and that is being treated as well (expected to heal up 100%). Stay tuned for more information on this sweet sweet girl once she recovers a bit!

She will walk, trot, and canter with the tiniest of tots. She is a gentle soul that tones it down for the littles. She took a 6 year old in small fry walk-trot classes (no lead line necessary for this gal) and rocked the class in a bustling outdoor show environment. What a rock star!

We have been teaching beginner lessons on her and she is positively saintly. She’s the sort of h[..]
