Scout

Donor: Holly robinson
birthday: 10/15/2004

Scout joined the PALS herd following a career as a lesson horse for a local community member. Always willing, Scout was a great mount for children and beginners who needed a steady partner to show them the way. Scout enjoys a challenge, carrying riders who need more support, but also enjoys trotting around the arena with more independent riders.

Tank (formerly Tanaquah) is a red roan Quarter Horse gelding. He started his training as a cutting horse; however, he grew much bigger than the ideal size for cutters, so he moved on to a different discipline. He was trained in dressage next and also served as a horse for trail riding. Tank’s calm demeanor and sweet personality make him a good fit for our therapeutic programs!
