We are pleased to announce that Titan is now up for adoption! Titan is a 15 year-old Hanoverian/Irish Sport Horse Warmblood. He came to Hanaeleh because both of his hind suspensories had been torn and his owner did not want to rehab him. It’s been almost a year, but he is now cleared for trotting and turn-out, and we have been riding him without issues.
Titan is a BIG boy- he’s 17 hands and WIDE. Titan can be ridden in walk/trot shows or out on leisurely trail rides (he’s happier when he goes out with a group- he doesn’t really like going out by himself- he gets nervous).
We ride Titan in a flex-tree western saddle right now, but he was ridden and trained in English, and was a three-day eventer (show jumping, cross country and dressage). He is very well trained, has a beautiful headset while being ridden, and learned how to neck rein very quickly. We’ve been walking and trotting him in the arena, and he seems to enjoy the exercise. He responds well and is pleasurable to ride for all levels of riders.
Titan had suspensory tears on both of his hind legs. While they are healed now and he is cleared for light trotting, he will never be able to jump again, and should not canter, either. We want his new owners to understand that he should be used for walking and trotting ONLY- cantering him or jumping him will only result in him being injured again.
All of Hanaeleh’s horses have a $1,000 adoption fee, and we retain a first right-of-refusal on all of our horses. We are located in Trabuco Canyon, CA (in south Orange County). Anyone who is interested in adopting Titan should fill out our horse inquiry form: >>HERE<<
