Padre - 2011, 16HH, OTTB ‘Padre Graz’ earned $200,000 on the track proving his work ethic and heart. Padre as far as we know has been a trail horse since leaving the track. Padre is a safe, sane and willing partner. He goes Western or English, rides out alone or in a group (front, middle or end), crosses water, bridges, logs, is not spooky, will not react to deer, dogs rushing a fence line or other horses playing in a pasture. And he looks great doing it!
In addition to the trail, Padre has been working in the ring at basic dressage, W/T/C. Canter is Padres weak spot as he needs to build more muscle and continue his conditioning. Padre also has spent time playing desensitization games in the round pen. He will calmly stand while a rope is thrown off him or on him, while balls bounce on and around him, walks and trots over tarps, pool noodles, etc. Padre is a great candidate for trail obstacles.
Padre is a joy to be around, he happily meets you at the gate, he’s easy to catch, tack up, stands in cross ties, loves a bath, to be groomed, clips, stands perfectly for the farrier, great ground manners, no vices, etc. His complete basic behavior profile is available.
Padre has a little arthritis in his hocks. We’ve injected both hocks making him sound and happy to work. He will require maintenance to remain comfortable. He’s up to date on vaccinations, teeth were floated 2/3/21 and he has a current coggins. Hock radiographs are also available.
Padre is suited for an intermediate or above rider. While Padre is very chill and happily hacks out on the buckle, he also has a GO button.
