Wellie thanks you for your support!
"Wellie" - 1997 Haflinger Gelding
Wellie came to Changing Rein after more than ten years of living with his former owners, Jane and Tim Whetstone. He was trained in dressage, and is quite adept at low jumping challenges. He is also stellar on long trail rides.
Wellie tries very hard to please and cares if people are happy with him. He willingly drops his head into a halter, seeks to pick up the bit when being bridled, and is keenly aware of every signal his riders give him. Because of his sensitivity, Wellie is not a beginner’s horse, but we know that with more practice and patience from us, he is going to be a fabulous teacher.
Like Hercules, he works well in equine assisted learning, though it has been new for him to experience people offering him a choice of whether or not to respond to the requests we make of him.
