“Pumpkin” is a very kind 4 year old mare that retired through Monmouth Park’s Second Call program. She retired due to a minor breathing issue that only affected her at racing speed. It should not affect her in another career, regardless of the level of work.
Pumpkin is about 16 hands tall and is one of the most well-mannered horses in our barn. She is sound and pretty clean legged, though she needed a little time to grow some hoof before we put her to work.... (read more) We were able to put new shoes on her toward the end of November and put a little work into her before winter started affecting our footing. She has a wonderful willing attitude on the lunge line as well as under saddle. Though we’ve only had a couple rides on her, it was clear she’d be a pretty easy one to bring along and might even do well in a lesson program.
Pumpkin has also been free-jumped and showed surprising athleticism over fences. She’s very tight with her knees. Though conformationally she’s not perfect, she could make a really nice horse for an amateur or lesson program and has the temperament to do well on trails or in a pleasure riding life as well.
Pumpkin is available for adoption now to the right home for $750.
