A Little Bit About Me: Hero is beautiful black gelding who was owner surrendered with his buddy, Rebel. Staff have been working with Hero on being caught, socialized, and he is slowly learning to be more trusting of humans. He would do best in a home with an experienced rider/handler or trainer that can provide him with the training he needs to become a successful riding horse. He has the potential to go in any direction!
