21yo 16.1 Barefoot Sound Quiet TB in Orange County, NY looking for a new job
I have a very well loved 21yo barefoot (for 2 years now) registered Thoroughbred gelding who would love to spend his twilight years on the buckle as a trail horse. My riding skills have progressed beyond what his body is capable of. He tries to put himself in a frame, but he'd much rather stretch down and go for a hack. While waiting for a custom saddle to be delivered, I spent 6 months trail riding him bareback. His paddock where he has lived for the last 2 years is right next to train tracks and a more solid citizen you could not ask for. He's a gentleman on the ground, out in the field, and no vices in the stall. Super easy keeper. Loves hay cube soup, forehead rubs and hunter paces. Still in active work 5 days a week.
Good home must have 3 references (1 must be vet, 1 must be farrier, and I would like the other one to be trainer if possible).
