This beautiful standardbred mare is Jasmine, also known as Jazz. She came to us as an owner surrender when her family was no longer able to keep her. We were told she was 15 years old, but upon closer examination, she seems to be closer to 25 years old. Her past is mostly a mystery, but what we were told is that at one point she was used as a standardbred race horse. Then she bounced around from home to home before being purchased by her most recent family as a riding and schooling horse for their daughter. However, her daughter did not ride her much as she was unable to get Jazz to pick up a canter lead very easily. 

Jazz has been with us for a short while now, and it is clear she is a horse who has been in pain for quite a while without receiving the treatment she needs. We have started her on joint injections, which she will need as regular maintenance throughout the rest of her life when her joints start to hurt. She is not suited for riding at this time, but would make a wonderful companion horse!

If you are looking for a companion horse, Jazzy is your gal! She has plenty of life ahead of her and deserves to spend it loved, spoiled, and treated with respect. Click below to apply to adopt her!
