Get to know Bramble

At the beginning of 2019, wild Bramble arrived at Longmeadow Rescue Farm. It was clear that no one had dealt with Bramble. She was unfamiliar with human touch, as well as with the love and care humans could provide. As staff and volunteers interact with the patient, Bramble discovers that humans aren’t that bad.

With her inquisitive personality, she has now successfully navigated through the PAP! She lunges in all three walks in both directions and knows how to separate her forehand and backhand. The once untouched mare has become a sucker for love from staff and visitors. Bramble has completed 60 days of training under saddle, but will need a professional trainer to continue her progress. Because of the saddle’s poor fit, the Bramble can be protective and reactive with its back. She will need an adopter who will pay close attention to proper saddle fit to continue building her trust and confidence under the saddle. She’ll be a perfect pony for training to pull a cart, too!
