Adoptable Equine – Dusty | Madison, WI Photographer

It’s time for another adoptable horse post! This time we’re featuring the handsome and quite adorable Dusty from Amazing Grace Equine Sanctuary!


Description from AGES:
Dusty is an 8 year old American Saddlebred chestnut gelding standing 16.1hh.  He spent most of his 8 years as a backyard ornament – and thus we are working on some of his ground manners/training.  He has a huge ground covering floating trot that will certainly turn heads in the show barn or get you where you want to go fast on the trails!  He will be started under saddle training as soon as he tells us he’s ready for the next step.  He is sweet, beautiful, friendly and the first at the fence to greet you with love and kisses!  He is a total sweetheart and farm favorite!  He is healthy, sound, utd and eager to find his one and only forever person!  He really loves people and wants to bond with someone!  As a Saddlebred…he has ALOT of energy and needs regular work to keep his mind and body busy and productive!  This guy’s expressions will melt any heart!  He’s a “must see!”  If you have Saddlebred experience – or have a trainer who does – then he’s your guy!  Dusty’s adoption fee is currently $350 but will increase once he’s saddle trained!  Adoption applications can be downloaded at our website

Adoptable Horse – Raven | Madison, WI Photographer

Wooohooo! Rolling out a new blog series! I’ll be posting every other month (or so) with a new animal that is looking for a loving home in Wisconsin. Please share these posts with your friends and let’s get some animals GREAT homes!

This month, CHP is featuring Raven from Amazing Grace Equine Sanctuary (AGES) in Elkhart Lake, WI. I was fortunate to be able to visit AGES on Christmas Eve and meet the lovely equines there and it’s great owner! If you’re looking for a bunch of friendly equines, search no farther! And here’s a peek at the beautiful Miss Raven.

Here’s what Erin has to say about Raven:

Billy’s Girl aka Raven is a coal black registered Thoroughbred unraced mare standing 15.3hh and is 21 years and still going strong.  She has a big body, big stride and is calm enough for an advanced beginner.  She loves showing her bad self off to get everyones attention!  She is a very lovely mare who has done many years of arena work and loves the riding environment!  She has some arthritis in one front knee which stays sound as long as she remains on Smartflex senior which costs about $1 a day.  She did many years showing where she achieved 2nd level in dressage!  She is still eager to do arena work and would do best with someone who wants to do light riding or as a lesson horse.  She is great for the vet, loads like a dream, and adjusts very well to new places and situations.  She has not done a lot of trails however she may be able to do so with an experienced rider and another companion horse used to trails.  She is utd and really needs her perfect someone to step up and claim this showgirl!!  Raven’s adoption fee is $300 to an approved home.  Applications can be downloaded at our website.

And here’s a photo AGES sent of Raven being ridden!
