Breed: Quarter Horse
Dexter was purchased by DCTC after being rehabbed. He came to us because his owners were unable to keep weight on him. After careful assessment it was decided that he would stay with us so he didn't end up in the same situation again. We were told that Dexter was a kid's horse but he has not been ridden since being with us. He is a very reactive horse and needs a quiet person to handle him. Dexter is an older guy but we do not know his exact age, he gets along with just about everyone (horse and human) but can be a bit nervous about people reaching too quickly toward his face. Dexter loves to be groomed and loved on which make him a great fit in our Mental Health Program. But Dexter is a horse who would love to have a volunteer to call his own who he would see every day and who would give him unconditional love and lots of treats.
