Update: August 2013: He is now at a H/J traing facility in Pennsylvania being retrained for a new career, and still looking for a new home. But with his retraining he is that much more ready for you! You may still call his owner/trainer from the track at the contact number listed, and she can put you in touch with the people retraining him in Pennsylvania.
“Kitty” is another much loved horse who would remain in the stable as a track pony if the trainer’s daughter had her way! When we first saw him he was being hacked around the backside in western tack and we even got video of him doing a comfy lope on the path to the training track. He is a very mellow, very verstile horse who is sound on old knees. After watching him neck rein, turn on his haunches and lope in a western pleasure headset we were shocked to learn that this is only his third day under western tack! So he is apparently a quick learner as well as a mellow, mellow guy. His connections think he would make a terrific kid’s mount with his sweet and sensible disposition. While he was standing in the road, still in western tack, he nuzzled his head to my chest, closed his eyes and I could practically hear him purring! If you’re looking for handsome, quiet, bombproof and fun, here’s your horse.

As always, a pre-purchase veterinary exam is recommended.
