*Available as a Companion*
Breed: Arabian cross

Reba is an energetic sorrel mare that came to VEWS as an owner surrender in April 2022. She is a cute, compact mare that is looking for a kind and confident partner. She spent several months with the trainers at Equine Welfare Society, and it was determined she is not dependable under saddle. She is not a hot, high-energy horse, but she is anxious and can be spooky. She takes time to be comfortable in her surroundings and needs her handler to be firm and consistent while maintaining a calm energy. She is very personable on the ground, clever, and enjoys praise and attention. Reba is best suited as a companion horse and bonds closely with her herdmates.
Reba is currently in Keswick VA at the Equine Welfare Society barn. All adoption visits will take place at that location.
