Michelle DeCanditis 2020

Itty Bitty

Update June 11, 2020:

Itty Bitty was selected for the 2020 Gimme Shelter Challenge and is currently off property for the 100 days of training with her trainer Michelle DeCanditis.  She will be available through our adoption-based auction at the completion of the event.  Please see the events tab above for more information and updates on all the horses in training.

Update October 4:

Itty Bitty has had the opportunity to continue working with volunteers on ground and with obstacles. She is a busy minded girl but once you get her attention she has a lot of try. This sweet girl loves attention and looks to be pretty athletic. She is being held for the 2020 Gimme Shelter Challenge pool of horses.

Update May 11:

Itty Bitty has been evaluated using a saddle pad and showed us that she didn’t have much knowledge or understanding of what it was.  This leads us to believe that she may not be broke to ride.  Since she is the right age to fit into our group of horses for the Gimme Shelter Challenge, she will be held to be a part of next year’s challenge.  In the meantime, Itty Bitty will continue to work with volunteers on ground work and practicing obstacles.

Itty Bitty is a 3-4 (?) year old grade bay mare that stands just at 14 hh. She came to THS through APNM contacts after her owner suffered a major stroke and was unable to care for her. She is very cute and very sociable, loving attention from everyone. With slight hesitation, she loaded nicely into the trailer. She was reportedly very good for the farrier for trimming as well. Itty Bitty will be further evaluated following quarantine.
