Preserving an American tradition... One equine at a time
Meet Contessa, Our Featured Equine
Contessa was removed from a negligent owner and placed with BEHS by an animal control officer. When Contessa was removed from her negligent owner, she went straight to a vet to have a halter removed from her head. It was put on her when she was young, left on her and had grown into her skin. She had scars for quite a while from the halter, but they began to fade. In 2012, she went to a trainer and excelled. He said she was sweet, calm and a fast learner and he was impressed with her. She was adopted a few months later to be part of a children’s therapy program. She was returned in 2016 because her adopter was aging and felt she could not keep up with her horses any longer. She was immediately adopted by a previous BEHS adopter but returned a few months later because she didn’t fit in well with the herd.
