Status: With Blue Rider since: 2017
Garuda came to us in 2017 as a five year-old. He had been started under saddle before he came to us, but injured a front leg and required extensive rehabilitation. He is playful, energetic, and curious, always watching and “helping” with anything anyone is doing in the barn and playing with any and every horse that will play with him.
Several years of difficulty carrying a rider, Garuda is currently a teacher to our helper program children and is also a great horse for our recentering program.
Unfortunately, we are still working with our vets on figuring out what exactly is causing Garuda to feel like he can not carry a rider. He is in a rehab program with our instructors and the vets, helping him with his back pain. We hope one day to get him to the point of carrying riders again but right now he seems happy with being brushed by our children.
Garuda needs your help with his vet bills and supporting his job and life here at Blue Rider.
