Harley Quinn

Harley is a 15yo (2009) Quarter Horse mare who came to DCER from an owner surrender in December of 2023. Harley and her previous owner had a very special bond and shared many wonderful years together. After venturing into barrel racing, Harley ended up tearing the same flexor tendon, twice. Her owner did everything right, bringing her to a full recovery with performance limitations. However, being a working college student, it was becoming hard to stay afloat. It was a difficult decision to surrender Harley, but her owner knew we would give her beloved horse the best care and, ultimately, find Harley the perfect home.

Harley has entered the training program and has wonderful manners, on the ground and in the saddle. As a previous barrel racer, she is ready to get up and go at a moment’s notice! Our trainer is currently riding Harley on trails and in the arena; teaching her that the pace is slower now. 

Harley will do best with a confident, experienced rider who has a light touch. She is responsive and willing. This mare has a lot to give and a bright future ahead!
