Lola is a quiet, mannerly mare that would make a variety of riders happy.
She is a cute enough mover for english, but has the "look" for the western classes as well. Heck, do the all-around with her... there's no reason why she couldn't!

During Lola’s initial evaluation, it was hard to get a good read on how much she knew. The more we work with her, however, the more we realize that she also has been treated cruelly by the man that had owned her previous to her rescue (along with Punchy and Daphne). Because of this, she will need a rider that can help her gain confidence and trust that humans will not be unfair to her again. In fact, we recommend a full restart with whoever adopts her. Relationship building will be an important thing to this mare.

Lola is sound and has no vices. She was thin when she came in but has gained weight beautifully and will be an easy keeper.

Lola qualifies for our Liberty with Luke program. This means that her new owner will be able to take her for some complementary lessons with Luke Gingerich for Liberty Horsemanship!

Bella Run Equine and Luke Gingerich Horsemanship are excited to announce their new partnership! While working together, it’s our goal to make sure the horses we rescue leave us with a fresh start and in a good position to build a solid foundation and relationship with their new owner.

In the horse world, it is often that the only “desirable” horse is a rideable horse... a horse that can have a “job” to serve people. For the horses that cannot be ridden for one reason or another, finding a good home is like finding a needle in a haystack. To increase adoptability for these horses, we need to strive to make sure each horse has a niche in life.

This is where Luke comes in! Starting now, adoptive owners of select Bella Run horses will have the opportunity to take Liberty Horsemanship lessons from Luke Gingerich! Luke competes in reining and ranch versatility, and specializes in liberty horsemanship. He travels the country performing and teaching with the goal of helping others to use effective communication, establish a solid foundation, and build a stronger relationship with their horses.

We are very excited to launch this new program and hope that it motivates people to consider the possibility of a rewarding relationship with a horse out of the saddle.
