Thoroughbred Gelding for Lease in Hinesburg, VT
16.0 hh 9-year-old OTTB gelding. He is currently being ½ leased at AFTER the Track farm in Hinesburg, VT and I am currently looking for someone to take over the other half of his lease as I will be a traveling nurse in the fall. 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, he is not spooky, and loves having a job. Felix loves to hack and do some pole work as well as small jumps – he enjoys a variation in his program. 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 task
... more»s. 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 2 years ago, he currently shows no signs of back tenderness or pain but can be a little “sticky” until he is warmed up. 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, easy keeper, and trailers very well. I am looking for someone that does not have an immediate agenda for him but someone that is willing to take the time to understand and figure him out as he is not a push button horse. No lease fee, just responsible for ½ the board, farrier, and vaccines. Message for more pictures + video
