Jessie, a chestnut Quarter Horse mare in her early 20's, came to the rescue in late 2006. She arrived with another Quarter Horse, a darker chestnut gelding, named Jack. After a little while of living at the rescue, Jack sadly had to be euthanized due to severe illness. Jessie became a volunteer favorite quickly, and was soon ridden. Upon her first ride, it was found that she had a bucking problem. Through months of work-including a change of saddles-that didn't pay off in fixing her vice, a chiropractic visit was in order. This revealed that she had serious back problems, and thus she was retired from riding. This beautiful, friendly mare now has a loving sponsor, and is enjoying life as a permanent resident, being a great horse for young volunteers to learn to groom on.
