Star is a big bodied standardbred mare that is ready to move out of the show ring. She is a solid w/t horse that is good for beginner walk but would be more suitable at the trot with someone that is balanced. She has a big, forward stride but at this time is more content just to walk around all day long. She comes to the gate every time I whistle, loves being groomed and fussed over. She clips, ties and trailers well. Currently comes in at night but could live outside, might take a few days to settle.... (read more) Star is a very easy keeper that stays fat on grass hay, a pound of oats (keeps her quiet when all of the other horses are fed grain) and is barefoot.
She competed on the Ontario Standardbred Series for three years in the jumper and dressage divisions where she did well. She can be ridden in a frame, knows side pass, leg yield, shoulder in, turn on the haunches and turn on the forehand. Is not a candidate for jumping any longer as her right hock is getting arthritic changes.
