If you have a soft spot for off-track thoroughbreds, look no further than Faith! She didn’t have a super illustrious racing career, but she came off the track into a loving home and had a successful second career under saddle. She has been out of work for a few years now, and she was diagnosed with mild kissing spine in 2015. She is a petite lady and a bit out of shape at the moment, so helping her build muscle to support a healthy, strong back will be step one. We have just started her back in work with lunging and long-lining with the goal of getting her strong enough to carry a rider again. She lunges beautifully and has big floaty gaits!
This gorgeous girl does best with as much turn out as possible a 24/7 in and out situation would be her dream come true, but she is calm in a stall with day time turn out as well. She currently has front shoes on and is comfortable and sound with that support. She has been out with both mares and geldings she could make a really nice companion horse with proper introductions! Sometimes mares get a reputation for being feisty, and sure shell make a grouchy face from time to time if she thinks you are going to steal her dinner, but overall she is a laid back and affectionate horse who just wants to munch on her hay and take naps in the sunshine.
She stands patiently for the vet, farrier, grooming, and bathing – she’ll even let you wash her face! She would do best with an experienced owner/handler to help give her calm confidence and guidance she is willing to please and will follow your lead. If you love OTTBs as much as we do, you will fall in love with Faith!
