An underfed and neglected horse rescued three years ago by King County animal services is set to participate this weekend in a regional equestrian competition.
Dr. Gene Mueller of Regional Animal Services of King County says Delilah was one of five horses seized from a southeast King County farm in January 2010. The mare was pregnant then, standing in knee-deep mud. Some of the other animals died or were euthanized. The owner was cited for animal cruelty and fined.
Delilah was rehabilitated with the help of a horse rescue called Save a Forgotten Equine. Both she and her foal were adopted.
The mare’s natural athletic talent was recognized, and now she’s competing in dressage, an equestrian sport in which horses perform special movements in response to signals from their riders.
