Thoroughbred Gelding for Sale in North Haven, CT

Felix is a 15.2 hh 10-year-old OTTB gelding. In 2017 Felix competed in the Kentucky Thoroughbred Makeover - Retired Racehorse Project competition and placed 17th out of 90 horses in eventing and had the 8th highest dressage score in the 70’s. Felix has a good brain on his shoulders, and loves having a job, especially one with variety. Felix would be best suited with an intermediate confident rider because although he is not “hot” he is still green and will depend on his rider to feel confident with new tasks. He is very athletic and brave but is nicely sensitive. Felix has a loving and curious personality, easy to handle, and goes out well with others! Felix has 4 shoes and UTD on all his shots, farrier, and teeth. Felix does have a history of Kissing Spine which he had surgery on a few years ago, he currently shows no signs of back tenderness or pain. He will need someone that has a continuous rehab mentality and is willing to incorporate hills, ground work, and stretches into his weekly routines. He has no vices, low maintenance, and trailers very well. Given my work schedule, I am unable to give Felix the time and work he needs to be successful. He is a fantastic horse who bonds well with his rider and needs a more consistent program.

About North Haven, CT

In his will of 1714, the Reverend James Pierpont (1659–1714) of New Haven gave 8 acres (32,000 m 2) to his neighbors in the Northeast Parish, as North Haven was called, "provided those neighbors will set their meeting house there and make their training and burying there." The first meeting house, completed in 1722, stood on the Green, west of what is now known as the Old Center Cemetery. About half of the original Pierpont gift remains today as the North Haven Green. Ezra Stiles enumerated about forty families living in North Haven in the early part of the eighteenth century. All of these people were multipurpose farmers, producing what they needed for themselves and their families. In 1786, the General Assembly permitted North Haven to incorporate as a town, separate from New Haven.
