“Scout” is a much loved horse who has given so much to her trainer, who takes excellent care of his horses, and cares about making a great match into the best of new homes. This elegant mare with a beautiful feminine head is described as sound, kind, big hearted, good to handle and good to ride. She is a very nice mover, light, balanced, with reach and that toe pointing trot that should do well in the hunter ring. Her trainer says she is racing sound, and she ran well for him last year. But she has also won enough that she is now facing tougher race conditions where she is not as competitive, so her trainer wants to find her a great new home where she can flourish in a new career. When she was 3, she did incur a small crack in a cannon bone, a non-displaced condylar fracture. She had surgical treatment, and everything healed just fine, and she came back to race well. Extensive research by the renowned Rood & Riddle Equine Hospital demonstrates that over 98% of horses with non-displaced condylar fractures who have surgery not only return to racing at the same competitive level as before the injury, but they can also go on to successfully perform in other disciplines, including higher level eventing and jumping. Scout has a nice pedigree for sporting disciplines. Her sire A.P. Warrior is by A.P Indy out of a Quiet American mare, which is the Fappiano line. Her dam is a Danzig granddaughter with Tom Rolfe, Spectacular Bid, and Buckpasser in her pedigree. A very good home is essential for the beautiful Hoosier Scout.
