2021 Gimme Shelter Adoption Event

Please scroll to the bottom to see all the horses and trainers participating.

Our trainer’s have picked their horses and we will be updating our website frequently with new pictures, videos and training progress reports.

The event will not be held at the Rodeo Grounds this year, but in a smaller arena and we do not know if we will be able to open it to the public. The event will take place on July 31st and winners will be announced that day, the horses will all  be available for adoption (auction based.)

We will be announcing the final format of the event, as well as the bidding process in June.

The Freestyle component will now be a part of the The GS Challenge.  Participation by trainers is optional.  It will be a stand-alone competition for those that opt to participate.  The Firebird is our terrific sponsor for the freestyle portion of the event!

    Mare, 3 YEARS OLD, 14hh, Feral, Bay

    Trained By

    Training Progress

    Pros: Demi has shown herself to be athletic and smart. When she is feeling confident with her handler, she can be quiet and focused.  Demi is stoutly built and seems to have a good
    work ethic.

    Cons: Demi can be reactive and “flighty” when she is not feeling confident.  She sometimes hides that she is just tolerating new things instead of accepting them.  Demi can be difficult to catch, especially with people new to her.  Demi came to THS feral and untouchable.

  • Fortune

    Filly, 3 YEARS OLD, Grade, Gray

    Trained By

    Training Progress

    Pros: Fortune is extremely smart and confident.  She is a quick learner and excels with structured, consistent training.  She enjoys having a job to do.

    Cons: Her intelligence and confidence has contributed to pushiness, some stubbornness and a lack of respect for boundaries.  She will take advantage of a handlers lack of confidence or skill if she sees it. She can be reactive to loud noises or quick movements in the distance, and is often distracted by other horses or activity in the area.

  • Pearl

    Mare, 4 YEARS OLD, Grade, White/gray

    Trained By

    Training Progress

    Pros: Once she trusts her handler, she becomes more confident in herself.
    She has a quiet disposition.  Has a willing attitude to learn.

    Cons: Can become reactive when she is pushed to her limit and possibly had some poor handling in her past.  Lacks confidence and trust with new things.  She can be shy before she knows a new person especially during the initial approach and haltering.

  • Promise

    Training Progress

    Pros: Twist has a friendly disposition and enjoys people. She is level headed, highly trainable and easy going. Twist was one of the first of the group to work with volunteers and has proven to be quiet easy to catch, work with and groom.

    Cons: Due to her high trainability and go-with-the-flow personality, Twist will easily pick up bad habits and put forth minimal effort during training sessions if allowed to. She can be easily distracted when she is not actively engaged.
