Standardbred Mare for Sale in Hitchcock, TX
She was ridden in her previous home and has been tested at the ranch. Kes didn~t want the blanket and saddle, but once they were on she stood quietly until the rider tried to mount. She circled until the rider was on, then did fine. She neck reined, but was rather rusty. She would back, and generally did well. http: / / www. habitatforhorses. org / adoptaho rse / kes. html
About Hitchcock, TX
Hitchcock was created as a station of the railroad between Galveston and Houston in 1873 and around the turn of the 20th century became a vegetable shipping center. The settlement's economy crashed in the 1930s after insect plagues in the surrounding areas, and the area stayed impoverished until the establishment of the Camp Wallace anti-aircraft training base and the Hitchcock Naval Air Station at the beginning of World War II. After the end of the war, the bases were used as discharge centers, and some former soldiers settled in the area. Hitchcock was established in 1960 as the area's population boomed, topping out at nearly 7,000 by the end of the 1960s. Today, the town serves as a suburb of Galveston and houses workers from the Johnson Space Center.
