Lasso came into our rescue program on January 14, 2015. Lasso came from the Pottawatomie County Sheriff's Office along with 11 other horses as an abandonment case. Sadly, help came too late for 2 other horses. We lost a 6 month old foal 3 days after she arrived and we found 1 dead on the property. Lasso is a Beautiful, Bay Roan, Quarter Horse, Mare. Lasso is estimated to be 6 years of age. Lasso is body score of a 3. She is infested with internal/external parasites, has rain rot and is mildly anemic. Lasso is covered in ticks and possibly pregnant. Lasso is a sweet girl, but very scared. Lasso, along with the 11 other horses, haven't experienced much hands on attention. Most are not halter broke or broke to lead, but learning. It is going to take some time and patience and this beautiful herd will learn to accept love and attention. It clear that no human has been there for them in the past, and they don't understand that we are here to help. We will update as Lasso improves. Please consider making a donation towards Lasso's Rehabilitation.

Update May 30, 2016 Lasso is seeking her forever, loving home. We are completely surprised this beautiful girl did not get adopted during our Trainer's Challenge. Since Lasso has returned to our rescue facility and settled in after the challenge. Lasso has been ridden by several of our volunteers and family members. Lasso certainly became the favorite among everyone and she has been ridden several times since competition. This is a great horse! Jules Curry did an amazing job training Lasso. Lasso will make someone an excellent horse and is ready to go any direction you want to take her. While Jules had Lasso in Training, she started her on barrels and poles. You can rope the dummy off of her, track steers, or drag things. Lasso is very cowy and she doesn't mind any kind of livestock. Lasso will go through water with no problem and she is great on the trails. Lasso can pivot both left and right, stop on a dime, gives to the pole, moves her hindquarters over, does simple and flying lead changes. Lasso has basically been trained similar to a reining horse. Lasso has been hauled to barrel races and arenas and doesn't easily spook. This beautiful girl is ready to go any direction you want to take her. We really can't say enough about Lasso or her training. You can watch Jules performance during our 5th Annual Blaze's Ride to the Rescue Trainer's Challenge here: Team Lasso.
