    Default PA- 5 y.o. 16hh gray TB gelding, ex-hurdler FTGH

    imported (from Ireland) 16hh grey 5 year-old TB gelding, previous career successful hurdler - he won his last race by 17 lengths. Now looking for a home, not sure how much work he'll tolerate. He has some arthritis in his back, and we haven't tried to get him fit. He may be suitable for light riding only, or possibly could paperchase or foxhunt. Too early to tell.

    Super easy temperament, though - anyone can ride, kids can handle. Out in a group with mares, foals, and geldings, gets along great. Barefoot and happy, free to good home.

    This horse has just been taken on trial. I will re-post if it doesn't work out. Thanks to everyone who has been interested in giving him a good home!

    If he doesn't work out, please send me a PM. I have a working student who is looking for a horse. She's been riding one of my OTTB's - also a former hurdler & has done quite well with him. Great home, great people, just not a lot of up front money. A hard worker, committed & passionate about what she does and about a horse's welfare. Thanks!
