The Appalachian Trainer Face Off Introductions

Introducing our third Trainer x Horse Pairing, Aubrey and Soleil!

This kind black Tennessee Walking Horse mare was saved in later 2016 from Mingo county, WV. She was living in abject, stark neglect and was a walking skeleton. She has no previous skilled handling, and the people neglecting her did not even know how to halter and lead her. She is only 6 years old, possibly coming 7. She struggled to recover for many months, and there were times we felt she had suffered too much, too long. But here she is today and a beautiful mare, at that!

Can Aubrey of Adkins Quarter Horses bring out all of the talent this former body score 1 mare from rural Appalachia has to give her future owner? Undoubtedly!

You can learn about her full intake story here

Her trainer had this to share about how she came to partner with Soleil:
“Every One, meet, Soleil. This is who I ended up with from our selection at the trainer face off drawing. Now let me tell you, She wasn’t my first pick, and she wasn’t even in my top picks. But everything happens for a reason. This mare is an angel in disguise. I can’t wait to share our journey through this challenge. Because she is truly making my job easy thus far!”

Check Aubrey and Soleil out on the trails already! Wow!

Remember, while ALL of these horses and trainers will prove to be phenomenal, this is a competition, and the ONLINE FAN Favorite will take home the “SOCIAL MEDIA FAN PICK” Award, and the more interest generated in each horse, the HIGHER chance of adoption of EACH and EVERY Horse.

These horses will be adoptable via online and in person auction to APPROVED homes on HOP contacts on August 26th. This is an amazing chance to give a home horse who has been through so much a forever home and all the while being blessed with an equine coming to you with an exceptional foundation that has a value many times over the adoption fee! I cannot imagine a better place to be browsing for your next equine partner, guys!

Over the next few days, I will share a Trainer / Horse pair taking part in the Appalachian Trainer Face Off, an inaugural, yearly event.

Today, it is #HOPTEAMSOLEIL

Tomorrow, meet another Competitive Team!

And mark your calendars, as this Face Off is one you will NOT want to miss, so plan to drive in, fly in or float in to see this on August 25th and August 26th!
