Update May 30, 2016 Cooter Brown is now seeking his forever, loving home. This sweet boy was overlooked at our Trainer's Challenge. Cooter Brown will make someone an excellent kids horse, possible play day horse. He is very tolerant and has a level head on his shoulders. He is a very calm boy and has so much potential. He would also be just as great as a pleasure horse/trail horse. Cooter stands around 13.2/14 hands tall. He would be best suited for a kid or small adult, since he isn't a large boy. Since returning to the rescue and settling back in after the challenge, several of our volunteers and family have ridden Cooter Brown. He truly is a great horse and has so much potential. Come check him out for yourself! You can watch Cooter Brown's performance with Adult Trainer Ken Hallam here: Team Cooter Brown. This is one of 2 video's that will be uploaded to youtube. This video does not show close up, what is important to notice. You may be watching this video and see hesitation or a scared horse, while Ken is bending down to pick up his rope. What you may not notice is, Ken accidentally spurred Cooter Brown 3 times in his flank before Cooter finally reacted with that mild hiccup. While you may think that Cooter wasn't compliant. We see a very tolerant horse, that tried to do what was asked, but by the 3rd time, he didn't understand what was being asked of him. Cooter Brown connected that rope to the spur, which is why he later didn't want to have that rope on him. When you watch that video, just remember how other horses may have reacted to that. Cooter Brown was very tolerable and tried his best to please, despite the accidental pain. Here is Video 2:Team Cooter Brown..

Cooter Brown is a super sweet boy and has so much to offer. We changed the format of our Trainer's Challenge 2 years ago, because we wanted to highlight the horses strengths not their weaknesses. We felt that the trainer's knew best, since they have been training them for the last 5 months, of what their strengths were. Please don't focus on the Video's of Cooter Brown and judge his potential based on his performance. Cooter has so much more to offer than what we are seeing here. As stated by Ray Hunt, horseman "Feel your horse. How does he make that bend? Is he rigid? Is he tight? Is he mellow? Is he lazy? There's a lot of things going on in there if you'll listen to him. We don't notice near enough of the good things, we just take them for granted. We do way too much physically." "People have to learn that whatever the horse does is right. You're the one who got into his life....he didn't get into yours. It's amazing what the horse will go through to satisfy a human being." "There will be discouraging times, but you need to accept them, make the best of them and go on. We have to accept some things {are} not working so we know we don't have to keep doing them. We have to accept defeat to gain success. It's a way of life." We firmly believe the horse is never wrong. Cooter Brown is an awesome little horse that has a lot of try. He just needs a family that will give him the small rewards for all his efforts and build up to what you are asking for him. He will give you 110%, if he understands what you want. Cooter Brown has received 5 months of training and is ready for his forever, loving family.
