Rover Medium Male Arab / Mix Located in McKinney
Name: Rover
Gender: Gelding
Breed: Arabian
Height: 14hh
Arrival Date: July 2018
Adoption Fee: $600 (price will increase with continued training)
Location: SPCA of Texas, Russell H. Perry Animal Care Center, McKinney, TX
Training level: Started under saddle
Current assessment and personality: Rover came to us undernourished and as a stallion. He was fairly good around people but did not appear to have any under saddle training. Rover is finishing up 30 days of training with Eddie Eppenaeur. And he has made quite a turn around. He has a great foundation of groundwork and walk/trot under saddle. Because he is still gaining muscle, Rover has loped just a little bit so far. Rover is learning how to react calmly to new situations, but by nature he can be a bit nervous. Due to his sensitive nature and level of training, we would consider him on the greener side of greenbroke at this point. A skilled rider can finish him out to be a really nice horse.
