Horse Description: Dixie came to the West Virginia Horse Network in February of 2017, when her owner contacted in a very touching email. He is in his 70's. His wife of 48 years passed. While he cares deeply for Dixie and the other two horses he needs to find them new homes. She had been used as a trail horse, but hadn’t been ridden in a few years. She is currently being “tuned” up and has been on several trail rides. She has a willingness to learn. She is not a get up and go horse, but she is a slow and steady horse.
