William has been trained under saddle, however has had many trust and behavioral problems. He returns to us showing signs of a very sore back and will be visiting the vet and then spending the next several months in rehab.

William came to GSH as a very nervous and anxious 10 year old. He is slow to trust but has greatly improved. He can still be very tough to catch though he enjoys attention if you don't have a rope or halter! He's been worked with extensively including spending time with a professional trainer but has had to work through various behaviors including rearing and now bolting. He returned to GSH due to a relationship change in his adopter's life, and shows a very large sore back just in front of his hips. He will be heading to Dakota Large Animal Clinic to see if he needs medical intervention or if a chiropractor will help, and then spend several months in a rehab foster home just letting his body heal. He is potentially a pasture pals placement.
