Pierre came to us with a history of back pain. Radiographs were taken and Pierre was diagnosed with Kissing Spine. Pierre was injected and within 1 week was negative to palpation over his whole back and cleared for riding. The Kissing Spine is managed with annual injections and conditioning over the topline.
Prior to donation Pierre was competed up to 4’ jumpers but it is our belief that this horse does not need to compete at that level anymore but he loves to jump and would LOVE to do some lower level competitions over fences. THIS IS NOT A BEGINNER’S “MADE” HORSE! Pierre is an athlete who loves his job and will take hold of the bit and go over anything placed in front of him whether a hay bale, jump, or the fence keeping him in a pasture with a board down, HE LOVES TO JUMP. Pierre has lovely ground manners and needs an experience partner to help him under saddle.

We do our best to keep the horse listings as up to date as possible, but due to the volume of horses coming in, there is a delay.
