Zia is continuing her rehab and we have seen some signs of improvement. She is moving better for ground work. Unfortunately when she was saddled and ridden last, she still felt sore. Zia has been enjoying being handled and groomed by our volunteers while she recovers.

December 9, 2020:

Zia is still in rehab and is continuing to show signs of improvement. There is a good possibility that she will be able to be started back under saddle soon. In the mean time she is getting to do some ground work to see how she will hold up.

October 28, 2020:

Zia is still in rehab, however she has been showing signs of improvement. She will be reevaluated shortly and then we will come up with a plan for moving forward.

Update October 7, 2020:

Zia unfortunately has been showing some signs of discomfort in her hind end. We are in the process of getting her the veterinary care she needs. We hope to have her recovered and back under saddle as soon as possible.

Update July 15, 2020:

Zia has made her way back to The Horse Shelter, and has started our training program.  She was in our Gimme Shelter event last year and was adopted out, but she was starting to become herd bound to her dam.  Her adopter thought it was best she found a new home away from her mother.  Zia is a brave and confident horse.  She has been on many trail rides and has been desensitized to many different objects.  She has a slow trot and lope.  Zia needs a little fine tuning with some steering and when asking her to stop or back up.  She would need an intermediate to advanced rider at this time.

Update May 11, 2019:

Zia was selected for the 2019 Gimme Shelter Challenge and is currently off property for the 100 days of training with her trainer Brody Provence.  She will be competing at the Rodeo de Santa Fe on July 19th and 20th, and will go through our adoption-based auction at the completion of the event.  For more information, go to the Events tab and select Gimme Shelter Trainer’s Challenge 2019.

Update March 21:

Zia is a spunky little girl with a big personality.  She will be in the pool of horses for the 2019 Gimme Shelter Challenge.  She has learned a lot from our volunteers on the ground with trailer loading and other obstacles during class time.

Zia is a bay filly with four high stockings. She arrived at THS with her dam Zuni.
