Update May 30, 2016 Firebug is ready for a forever, loving home to call his own. We are saddened that Firebug did not get adopted at the Trainer's Challenge. His full potential just wasn't seen. Angie Sack and Team Firebug did great at the challenge and placed 4th in the adult division. This beautiful boy has a lot to offer and is young enough to go any direction. He is still just a kid, but he is very well trained and tries very hard to please. Firebug has returned to our rescue following the competition and once he settled back in at home, he was ridden by Emily Roberts and Shawn Cross and now Kelci Goad. Firebug was super calm and didn't get in a hurry to do anything. He needs a calm, relaxed rider, where both can excel together. He would make a great trail/pleasure horse, or he can be trained for any discipline you wish. Firebug has been ridden on the trails since he has been back. He loves to trail ride and he gets excited and eager to go. He is still just a kid so things such as deer jumping out scare him a bit, but he is easily controlled. He is currently being ridden twice a week, but he gets bored in the round pen and wants to do so much more. This special boy just needs a family and a job. He loves attention, he is always waiting for someone to come visit him. He loves his head to be rubbed and scratched and he will quickly lean into you to do it himself if he is ignored. He still has a bit more to grow, so I can only imagine how big and beautiful this boy will get. Firebug loves attention and he has an eager to please personality. You can watch Angie's performance during our 5th Annual Blaze's Ride to the Rescue Trainer's Challenge here: Team Firebug. Angie Sack and Team Firebug came in 4th Place in our Adult Division, 5th Annual Blaze's Ride to the Rescue Trainer's Challenge. These two did a wonderful job! Firebug has received 5 months of training and is still being worked and ridden so that he continues to thrive while waiting for his forever, loving home. Firebug has a current negative coggins, up to date on vaccinations, deworming, teeth floating and hoof maintenance.
