Alii’ Bio

Maestros Encino aka ALII’

Date of Birth: 1993

Thoroughbred Gelding


Alli’ which is pronounced (A-lee-E) which is Hawaiian for a Cheif, Noble, or King.

Alii’ was originally purchased from a low end auction where he has been dumped with an injury. He sustained a bowed tendon on the Race Training Track. He came with racing plates still on and a very hot and huge bow to his tendon.

He was purchased and brought home then gelded when up and moving again. Someone commented that he should be a dressage horse due to his beautiful movement. He was then put into training and shown dressage and won many many ribbons and prizes. He had a very successful career in the Dressage ring for many years but due to health and financial issue his owner needed to find a place for him.

Courtney knew and loved this horse from his showing ring years and offered a place for Alii’ at Under the Angel’s Wings Rescue to come and find him a forever home with another young dressage student who need a great horse to teach them the ropes.

Alii’ came to UAWR several years ago and was placed in a great home and he has several young girls who he taught how to ride. He was later returned and had a couple of foster homes since then but he now has returned “Home” to UAWR and will remain as a sanctuary resident for his remaining years where he will not have to be shuffled around any longer.

He will still get to spend time with the volunteers and the kids he loves so dearly and longs to have someone come brush and love on him.
