Anita is a Pony of America. She came from Northern Missouri with many horses. Her group suffered from severe neglect which led to their emaciated condition and many did not survive. Anita was so weak when she arrived at the ranch that she was unable to stay standing for long and unable to stand up without assistance from expert staff. Over many weeks staff had to lift her multiple times each day!Unfortunately circumstances in Anita's previous home caused her to have very minimal trust in humans. She is working to overcome her fears, especially towards oral and injectable medications and the farrier. At this time, she is still sedated for these treatments. She requires an adopter with advanced handling skills. She gets along well with other horses in a pasture or paddock. She can be hard to catch but also picks her preferred humans. While Anita works toward more confident bonds with her humans, she shows intelligence, three beautiful gaits and an athletic conformation. Our trainer suspects that Anita has some knowledge of under saddle training but will need to be restarted by a professional trainer. This horse is not for the novice horse owner. Although Anita has come a long way in gaining trust, she still has many challenges to overcome.Adoption Fee: $300.00Weight: Maximum carrying weight including tack and rider: 145 LBS.Height: 13.2 HH
