Full Sponsor:
Kari Rosenbaum
 

  • AuroraFoaling Date: 2004
  • Breed: Quarter Horse
  • Height: 15.3 Hands High
  • Color: Bay
  • Markings: Star
  • Owner: Three Gaits
  • Arrived at Three Gaits: December 2015
  • School Horse Specialty: Aurora has a large purposeful stride that gives our riders great feedback along with a confident and willing attitude. She can be seen in therapeutic riding classes teaching students to steer and post the trot and also in classes where students ride independently. She loves to interact with the riders and volunteers, especially the ones who know where the good itching spots are!
  • Previous Life: Aurora was donated to the UW Vet School to be euthanized because she chronically colicked. When she first arrived at the vet school everyone fell in love with her sweet and patient demeanor. Dr. Brounts, one of the surgery clinicians, Dr. Diego and Dr. Freeland, the surgery residents just couldn't give up on her. The surgeons along with a fantastic support team decided to perform a pro bono colic surgery and donate her to Three Gaits. When she first came to Three Gaits we didn't know much about Aurora's history. With the help of our dedicated volunteer team, we were able to rehab her with daily walks and grooming sessions. When her incision was healed we started to lunge her and realized she was quite a knowledgeable horse with solid training background. It didn't take long to get her back under saddle and in lessons. Aurora has not been fazed by these challenges and seems to really enjoy her new job.
  • Did you know?: Aurora was named after the Roman goddess of dawn. She was renamed when she came to Three Gaits because she was given a new dawn on life!
