Advertising on behalf: Bridget Jones was rescued by a friend of the ARAN team and is looking for a new home. She is located in Taumarunui.

Bridget Jones (Bridgee) is ready for her new home. Just 4 years old she was sold for being “too slow to race”.

Bridget is a stunning bay mare standing approximately 15hh with a playful attitude and a friendly personality. She likes to run and play, but needs a paddock mate to stop her from being lonely. She is easy to handle, likes routine, but gets stroppy if you’re late with her breakfast. She is inquisitive, talkative, and likes cuddles, and is good around dogs, sheep, pigs, cattle, and other horses.

She has overcome a number of issues since her rescue, and her vet is happy with her progress, her weight gain, and the shine that has come back to her coat. She still has a slight issue with one of her hooves, but this is being treated and is on the mend. Bridget is originally from a breeders stud and is microchipped and would have had her early vaccinations there. She has recently been wormed and had regular hoof trims.

Bridget responds well to a quiet and calm approach, and would suit someone who will love her and grow with her as a best friend. Pet home only please. Her adoption fee is $1000 which will contribute towards some of her rescuing expenses. Please email us at if you would like to meet her.
