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 has experience is important.
He is tricky to catch, stands well for the farrier, and behaves for the vet like a pro. He ties, loads and hauls like a seasoned show horse, and has good ground manners. He is a very sweet pony without a mean bone in his body. However, someone was really rough on him in the past and it left him fearful of new people and situations. Because of this, he is suitable for someone who is interested in a project. Rex has come a LONG way since he has been here and we are looking for someone to continue his training in the right direction!
