About April

April was removed from negligent owners and placed with Bluebonnet by the sheriff's department. She was rehabilitated with the aid of her excellent foster home, and then she spent about six weeks with Bernie Willimitis in Sept-October 2017 to be started under saddle. Bernie brought her to the Bluebonnet Horse Expo where she met her adopter. Congrats to Julie D!

Evaluation and Training

When April arrived, she was hard to catch but now her foster home says she can walk up to April easily. She stands to be haltered, leads, and loads. She likes grooming time, but when she arrived she seemed to be uncertain of saddle pads and saddles. April is a super sweet horse who stays sweet and quiet in new settings. She is a quick learner, so she should be a good horse to start under saddle. She is spending six weeks (September-October) with Bernie Wilimitis to be started under saddle. When he got her, Bernie said she was very nervous and reactive. He's been working with her on the ground and she's settling down with him. He says she learns quickly and she's improving every day! He's been ponying her out on trails and riding her in a round pen.
