Mercedes is a coming 3 year old filly given to ATR by a very kind and responsible breeder who decided not to race her. They started her with tack but did not put a rider on her before we got her. This filly incredibly mild-mannered and easy to work with and was reported the same at her breeder’s farm. She is very easy out in the field with the other horses and let us pull her mane and clean up her whiskers like a pro. She has great feet and was very sound for her vet evaluation.... (read more)
Her knees are a little offset so she likely won’t make an upper level horse, but she should be good for most other disciplines and levels if you have the know-how and desire to bring along a lovely baby. We’ve been starting Mercedes under saddle and she takes absolutely everything in stride. She’s being ridden at the walk in the round pen, is learning to steer, has great brakes, and is standing for the mounting block. Trot work should start soon!
After The Races
A rehabbing and rehoming facility for retired Thoroughbred race horses, here at After the Races we have several nice OTTBs in need of great homes. Adoption fees are low and these horses are capable of going on to any discipline. Right now we have horses who would make fantastic trail or lesson mounts as well as those who could go on to high level showing. Many great projects. Please consider adopting today!
