Thoroughbred Gelding for Sale in Lancaster, PA

“The Great McHenry”- THE prospect with a great brain, temperament, and unlimited athletic ability that everyone needs in their barn this summer! Henry is a 16 hand OTTB who has been off track for over a year and has got a GREAT start to post track life. He checks the boxes with some show and trail exposure, as well as dabbling in both the English and Western worlds with ease. Henry will WTC, and does know both his leads. If he finds himself on the incorrect lead, he fixes it himself. NO funny business, and will not buck, rear, bolt, kick, etc. He is the type of TB who doesn’t need lunged before riding and IF you do lunge him, he doesn’t act like a fool. As soon as you get him tacked up he is ready to get to work for you! Henry has a lovely trot that is slow and easy. He does
... more» have a strong canter if you don’t rate him properly, however when you do, it is very slow and comfortable. A simple snaffle bit is all he requires. He WILL jump a cross rail as well as hack out with a group. He will ride out alone also and is traffic safe. Henry stands to be mounted. His previous owner did trail ride him. We are currently working on getting Henry to engage his hind end and lower his head. He is super smart and very willing to try anything you throw at him! In the barn he is goofy, personable, and very happy go lucky! Henry stands to be cross tied, tacked, groomed, bathed, and loves a good scratch. He is a super in your pocket type of guy and is a joy to be around! We find ourselves almost always laughing at his silly antics and faces! Henry loves to “smile”! Henry LOVES to be turned out and to be able to play with his buddies. A home where he is mostly out would be ideal. He can be stalled however with no issues. In the pasture he is great with all other horses and respects fencing. He is also very easy to catch. Henry has been VERY well kept and has clean legs with no known injuries, up to date on shots, coggins, dental, massage, and farrier work. He does have a current set of front shoes on. This guy was very well loved by his previous owner, and it absolutely shows in both his personality and condition. Henry would be suitable for a youth with a trainer to bring along or an amature adult. If you want an easy project this summer, Henry is your guy!

About Lancaster, PA

Originally called Hickory Town, the city was renamed after the English city of Lancaster by native John Wright. Its symbol, the red rose, is from the House of Lancaster. Lancaster was part of the 1681 Penn's Woods Charter of William Penn, and was laid out by James Hamilton in 1734. It was incorporated as a borough in 1742 and incorporated as a city in 1818. During the American Revolution, Lancaster was the capital of the United States for one day, on September 27, 1777, after the Continental Congress fled Philadelphia, which had been captured by the British.
