OUR SHORTY: 2004 OTTB Thoroughbred Gelding needing Sponsoring

Shorty was nominated to the 2015 Retired Racehorse Project in Kentucky, but never made it due to a stifle issue.  He is a gorgeous guy, 16.0 hands tall.  He is rideable and loves to work.  He can be maintained with veterinary care and is serviceably sound.  We have shown him in Western Dressage and he has done well.  His unsoundness issue, although very manageable, makes adopting him out difficult at best.  We have moved him into our Sanctuary Program, where he will be an integral part of Team Hope for Horses.

LeeLeeAnna – 2000 OTTB Thoroughbred mare, well schooled

LeeLeeAnna is a Jewel, so that’s what we call her! Jewel is 15.2 hands tall.  She came here as a neglect case, severely under weight and needing some TLC.  Once we had her up to condition, we started riding her to see what she knows, and she knows a lot!  She is definitely rusty but is very willing and loves people.  She is sound and ready for her new human.

WUNDURRA: ADOPTED! 2013 registered Thoroughbred gelding.

Wunder never made it to the racetrack, he sustained a fractured sesamoid on his hind leg as a 2 year old and was in lay-up as he healed.  He is a big boy, at 16.3 hands, sweet and easy.  He is a wonderful mover, very willing to work, in fact, once he got here, he went right back into being a riding horse.  He has been out on cows, ridden western, out on trails and is ready for his own human. He would make a awesome hunter/jumper, dressage or event horse!   Sound and eager, contact us to find out more.
