Horse Description: Jesse James is a striking chesnut gelding that made his arrival from WV in October of 2016. He completed his ground evaluation in May 2017 and breezed through the tests of the tarp, lunge work, moving off of pressure and accepting a saddle. He completed a month of off-site training with one of DEFHR's volunteer trainers and did well with tying, trailer loading, bathing and leading exercises. He was quite unflappable even having a yoga ball bounce off his sides. He is currently going under saddle but is still quite green/remembering the lessons of his past so he does require an advanced rider at this time. Due his confident nature, he most likely will excel as a trail horse and light ring work. He is currently turned out with all geldings as his interest in mares is still quite prevalent!
