REAL FOOL
Age
: 18 Years Old (March 30, 2004)
Height: 16hh approx
Suitability: Trails / Pleasure Riding

SCARLET is one of the classiest and well-trained horses that we will likely list! This gorgeous mare is just all around wonderful and will make the perfect family horse. She is happiest stalled at night, and prefers a quiet private farm facility. She trailers well, cross ties perfect, wonderful to groom, bathe and will hack out alone or in a group. She can go well in a ring or on the trail. Knows how to frame and collect for an experienced rider who can ask properly, has a lovely uphill canter and great transitions. Can get a bit confused with green riders asking for cues, but is not bad in any way - just prefers a rider who can ask correctly so she knows what they want. Very responsive to leg, excellent whoa and goes in rubber snaffle or hackamore. Has a dressage foundation and has also jumped small courses but her ultimate favourite is hacking out and exploring the countryside. She is older, but still has a ton of years and life left in her! Sound, sane, currently ridden a few times a week but a 60+ year old rider. Does require light maintenance due to age if you want to do more than hit the trails. Scarlet has lived a pampered lifestyle and would love to continue living that type of lifestyle - her owner is just trying to slow down as well and cut back on the number of horses in her care. Scarlet is available ONLY to the perfect fit, and prefer semi-local to her current location so her owner can keep in touch and visit.

NITESICANTREMEMBER
Age
: 12 Years Old (May 2, 2010)
Height: 16hh approx
Suitability: Trails / Pleasure Riding

JACOB is a gorgeous gelding who has a ton of life in him and is ready to learn to hit the trails with his person! He is green broke under saddle and has been on some trail rides without batting an eye; however he does need more miles. Currently he is turned out with geldings but has been out in a mixed herd in the past with no issues. He does have front shoes on to keep him comfortable out on harder ground. Jacob does prefer 24/7 turnout, can stall weave if he's inside and bored - but is stalled at night in the winter without issues. He does have a coffin bone fused with his pastern so is not suited for a heavy work load, but is 100% sound. Unfortunately his owners circumstances are changing and she would love for Jacob to find a family who will be able to bring him along and love him as much as she does! Trailering can be arranged with his current owners for anyone interested in adopting within 2 hours of his current location.

TALLDARKNHANDSOME
Age
: 14 Years Old (May 15, 2008)
Height: 17.3hh approx
Suitability: Trails / Pleasure Riding

JETT is a massive stunning black gelding who is an eye catcher wherever he goes. He hasn't had the easiest life, as he found himself as an Amish driver a few years ago, and his breeder fought tooth and nail to get him back and get him home, where she found him an amazing home who has down extensive trail riding with him. Unfortunately his owners circumstances are changing and she would love for Jett to find a family who will enjoy him! Jett has wonderful humans in his life that will be interested in keeping in touch, so needs a home who will be open to sharing updates with them! Jett is a gentle giant and would make an amazing family horse, or "husband" type as he has the size for a longer legged rider. He does wear front shoes for trail riding on hard ground. Nothing out there on the trail rattles this boy! Trailering can be arranged with his current owners for anyone interested in adopting within 2 hours of his current location.

SHADYWOOD LAD
Age
: 20Years Old (May 11, 2002)
Height: 15.2hh approx
Suitability: Companion / Light Riding

Lad was born and raised on the same farm his entire life. He was extremely well handled since birth as he was orphaned when he was just 24 hours old. He has a very laid back and pleasant disposition, but due to his owners health, he hasn't been handled much recently and just needs some ground work refreshers. He has never offered to bite or kick, and while he been handled as much recently, he is extremely friendly and smart. Lad never made it to the races but was broke to ride at one time. He hasn't been ridden in at least 4 years, so would be considered a "back to basics" start.

UTD on all vet, farrier work as of August 2022.

 

Lad has arrived in foster care as his elderly owners could no longer care for him. He is still seeking an adoptive home and is a bonded pair with Shadywood Baron, listed below.

SHADYWOOD BARON
Age
: 19 Years Old (May 18, 2003)
Height: 15.3hh approx
Suitability: Companion/Light Riding

Buddy is the epitome of a war horse. With 197 starts on the track and $323,000 earned "the hard way" - he also spent his entire race career and life with the same family. He is sound, healthy and has been a pasture companion since his racing retirement in 2016. He has not been broke to ride, but likely would not take much to get him started under saddle. Buddy has seen it and done it all in his time as a racehorse, so is adaptable to most situations. He is wonderful to work with and very friendly. He's exactly what you'd expect in a horse that's hit the track 200 times in his life.

UTD on all vet, farrier work as of August 2022.

SHAYKH RUMBA
Age
: 14 Years Old (April 10. 2008)
Height: 16.2hh
Suitability: TBD

Shay is a big fella who found himself in the Shippensburg, PA direct ship dealer pen in late June 2022. He is unraced and his only connections are in their mid-90s, so he had no one to help him out. A kind and caring donor graciously stepped up to front Shay's immediate costs to get safe, and get back home to Ontario where he was born. Shay arrived to our foster care program from his mandatory quarantine stay in mid-August 2022. He is now being assessed as he needs a lot of weight, and does have some soundness issues to be mitigated.

SHAY IS NOW IN REHABILITATION & BEING ASSESSED.

PILLARS MAGIC
Age
: 19 Years Old (March 23, 2003)
Height: TBD
Suitability: TBD

LuLu is a tiny little mare who had a short racing career, and then we suspect was a buggy driving horse and a broodmare for much of her life. This summer she found herself at the OLEX month end horse sale, and we ended up being lucky enough to have a kind and generous contact at the sale who spoke to the person who had bought LuLu out of that sale - and they sold her to her. LuLu arrived to our facility on August 29th, 2022 and is currently completing mandatory quarantine since she did come from an auction situation. Once she has been given the all clear, we will then do a full assessment on her. LuLu does have some knee and suspensory damage from her years as a driving horse but she is fairly sound. She is excellent to work with, is a bit bored being stuck on monitored individual turnout so will be happy to get outside 24/7! We have been told by someone who knew LuLu that she is green broke to ride already! 

LULU IS CURRENTLY FINISHING QUARANTINE BEFORE BEING ASSESSED.
