Located on a farm right next to the Finger Lakes Race Track, Farmington, NY (near Rochester)
If you are looking for a very big, beautiful, sweet, lovely mover who is unraced, fully let down and ready to get going in a new sport horse career, you should snap up Cecil’s Comet! She had our volunteers who saw her exclaiming about what a lovely horse she is, and then when we saw her move we got even more excited about her. Cecil’s Comet is described as a very sweet, willing girl with no vices and who is not marish at all. She is hanging out on a farm, barefoot, where she turns out well with other horses, and she would love to have a job. Her handler said that occasionally people come to ride her, and she is the kind of horse that can sit for a few weeks, get a brief lunge, and then hop on and she will quietly walk, trot canter around, While she is very green, riders report that she is very willing and wants to understand what the rider is asking, and quickly figures out things like moving off the leg. Cecil’s Comet in unraced because when she was in training as a two year old she got a mild bow — which was fully rehabbed and causes no issues, and her leg was nice and tight. She is cleared to do anything. But for the past couple of years she has passed through different owners, none of whom was in a position to put her into race training. Cecil’s Comet showed off a big flowing walk with a good overstep, and a lofty trot with a rhythmic cadence. This mare is indeed far too nice to be a pasture pet — we can see her going far in dressage, eventing, or hunters. She is by Desert Party, a son of Street Cry. We know of Desert Party offspring who have gone on to successful careers as sport horses. Her dam is by River Keen, who was a top sport horse and steeplechase sire in his day. She has His Majesty/Ribot and Hail to Reason in her female family as well.
