With her uphill balanced build, strong shoulder, kind eye, clean legs and nice movement, Secret Dixie Dance is a diamond in the rough with great potential for many disciplines. Look past her not yet shed out winter coat, and focus on how great she can look when filled out and a top line developed. She is very lightly raced, with only 11 starts and one win, so there’s little wear and tear on her. She has spent most of her time hanging out at her owner’s farm, and she has now let her trainer know that the track life is no longer what she wants. He said that she is excellent to handle and work with around the barn and in morning training, but she hates the starting gate. In a recent race, she got startled while loaded in the gate, and got some superficial scrapes on her hind legs that are healing well — but now she definitely wants nothing more to do with the gate. So it’s time to let her find a new career. She posed perfectly for her photos, jogged quietly showing good balance, and enjoyed the attention. We also watched the video of her winning race and observed a fluid balanced gallop with a flat kneed reach. With her nice movement and build, we can see her doing well in lower level eventing, hunter paces, the show hunter ring, or as an all around fun trail and pleasure horse.
