“Chester” is an 8 year old gelding by Greatness and out of a Silver Charm mare who raced 41 times and retired through Penn National’s New Start for Horses program. He’s a big, solid, handsome guy with good manners and a nice way about him. He’s very kind to other horses and has also been kind to his riders!
We were already riding him lightly before the vet took a look at him. While he does have a bit of an ugly knee, it does not seem to bother him.... (read more) He was more irritated by a small stone bruise on one foot. We've since put shoes on him and he's doing very well. We’re very optimistic he will have a future trail riding or even as a lower level show horse or lesson horse for someone.
Chester has been getting ridden primarily at the walk and trot but has also started doing some canter work and is definitely a push ride! He’d probably enjoy a life of leisurely trail rides and playing with kids or families, while still possibly holiding up to low level dressage or other disciplines that focus on flatwork.
