Companion Horse/Equine Mental Health Coaching Horse - Aldie, Virginia
Remi is the sweetest, 5-year-old, registered, Quarter Horse rescue, picked up from New Holland Sales Stable in November 2017. His history sadly involves traumatic injury to his right, hind fetlock, and since, he was passed from auction to auction before we rescued him. His injury has left him unable to be ridden, but he’s the perfect horse for someone who wants a low-maintenance, vice-free companion who is quiet, gentle, loves attention, and gets along with all horses and people. He’s a super easy keeper who is happy living in or out, and he’s not herd bound but does love to play with other horses – don’t worry, though! He’s low in the pecking order and is happy staying there. He stands for the farrier, trailers easily, and is just a sweet, curious, easy-going horse who wants to keep someone company and provide endless love and cuddles. He’s always the first to come say hi to you when you enter the field, and the first to put a smile on your face when you really need it!
He was briefly used as an equine coach for teens with anxiety and according to the mental health coach who worked with him, he has a talent for mental health coaching. She is a Gestalt Equine therapist. We adopted him out to a family with 3 special needs children. Through no fault of his, the family has decided to get rid of ALL of their horses.
