Remember Jackson, an 8 year old bay mustang who came to AAE from the Virginia Range in Nevada?
Jackson is a handsome, athletic, and sensitive gelding. He prefers the company of his herd-mates over that of humans. He is curious and willing, but he tends to keep his distance. He is not readily approachable in a large space; however, he can be approached and haltered in a smaller, confined area.

Jackson was adopted and returned a few years later after a death in the family. After adoption, Jackson went directly into training, spending about five months with his trainer learning about humans, groundwork. trailer loading, and saddle and rider. Sadly, his adopter was unable to continue his education. As a result, he regressed, and his fear of humans returned. Because of this regression, he will only be adopted into a home with previous mustang experience. Jackson will be a long term project for someone with no time limits and no motives.
If you think you might be the Denise to this (Alan) Jackson, please visit his page to learn more, and submit an “Adoption Inquiry”.
Can’t adopt? Sharing Jackson’s story is so helpful, too! Maybe your family member, friend, or co-worker would be his perfect match!
You can also sponsor Jackson and help cover his care costs. Horse sponsorships help give us the stability and flexibility we need to make sure we can take our time finding the right home for each of our adoptable horses.
It’s been a tough several weeks at AAE. Our sweet ol’ Dusty crossed the Rainbow Bridge last week. Dusty was one of the cutest minis ever. He helped our new volunteers learn the ropes at AAE, and they learned about minis and mini care. This lil’ man was far less intimidating than a 1,000 pound horse for anyone new to horses. Sadly, he got very, very sick with a severe case of colitis, and like minis can do, he declined quite rapidly. Helping him across the Rainbow Bridge was the kindest choice for this lil’ man. We’ll miss his cuteness every day, but we know he’ll be watching over his two buddies, Robbie and Flame.
Thank you for your support helping horses each and every day!
