UNI student turns rescue horse's life around

WATERLOO (KWWL) -

From easily spooked and scared of humans to a family. 

One eastern Iowa girl shares how she turned a rescue horse's life around

UNI student Morganne Reinbolt is one of just 10 trainers across the Midwest to participate in a unique challenge. 

She's working with the Minnesota Hooved Animal Rescue Foundation.

They pair trainers with rescue horses to get them ready for adoption.

Morganne was paired with 15-year-old Radin.  

He wasn't properly cared for. He was not used to being around humans.

But Morganne has been working with him, watching his personality grow and muscles develop.

"Even though Radin's a 15-years-old horse and he's just now getting started, that doesn't make him any less of a horse. He's going to be a great life partner to somebody," Reinbolt says. 

In September, Radin and Morganne will compete in a competition.

They'll show off Radin's new skills and show that he's ready for adoption.

The competition Radin will participate in is called "The Trainer's Challenge of The Unwanted Horse."

It will be held in Minnesota.

Horses like Radin that haven't been properly trained, can be very hard to adopt.
